The title explains it all.

I do 100 sit-ups, 30 push ups, 110 pounds on the bench press with 12 reps, yoga, 130 on the leg press, shadow boxing, i make the peanut bag sound like a machine gun, I spar a little, I let it out on a punching bag, and i try to run two miles a day. I plan on joining the "Hard Knocks" boxing gym in Phoenix really soon so i can expand on my skills.

I eat no junk food.

My day usually consists of

MEDICINE BALL WARMUP

PILATES-20 MINUTES

SPEED AND ENDURANCE
6-uphill sprints up and run backwards downhill on 6 different hills to give me a different incline for each one.

Rubber Ball Hand-Speed Drill
Stand in the middle of a large, open room. Bounce a small superball on the floor and catch it on the first bounce. Repeat, but bounce it a little farther away or a little softer, so you have to move even quicker to catch it. Keep varying bounces. Five minutes

3 rounds Jump Rope
3 rounds heavy bag
3 rounds shadow boxing
3 1 minute rounds of punch out drills
1 minute round of speedbag to cool down

Abdominal Work

I don't know if it did or didn't but i haven't seen it around for a while so it prolly did. Do you have any recommendations of gyms that are close to Scottsdale?

Depends for the length of time in bout , and whether it is amatuer or professional. I mean, theres no point in doing 10 x 3 min sparring, skip 5rounds and 5 rounds on bag.... if you are doing 4 x 2min amatuer bout. title bouts would require intense workouts!

Yeah, I was told it had, which is surprising because it was a nice, well-equiped gym.Not many people, but I usually went in late morning, not afternoon.Prime time is usually late afternoon/early evening.

I moved back to Michigan, and aside from a few weeks during New Year's, I don't get back much.I have no idea what gyms are out there now.I trained at Hard Knock's for a bit, and was looking into the Madison Garden gym before we moved back.I had heard there was a really good coach out Scottsdale way though.Look here:

http://www.boxinghelp.com/arizona.html

An aquaintance of mine fights pro out of Phoenix, I'll ask him if he can recommend a good gym.

Hey spinx...what are calisthenics...I could look it up on google but I'll just let you tell me.

Also, what's your record in boxing, how long have you been boxing and how'd you rate yourself as a boxer on a 1-10 scale.

Calisthenics are exercises done with your own bodyweights, I also like to do a lot of swimming now though.

Had my first amateur fight 2 weeks ago, 1-0-0 got another fight in February 12th. My trainer is keeping me busy by putting me in amateur fights once a month from the circuit in my area. He recently spoke of a tournament in Virginia so I could be making my way down through their but for now, I will be fighting in West Virginia and Ohio once a month as long as the fights are still going on (my gym is in a circuit that puts on shows once a month with other gyms in those 2 states)

I still have a lot to learn but I feel confident in my style and dont think it will slow me down. My mental focus is so strong and that will carry anyone far.

1-10 I cant rate myself yet, to many styles and to much to learn.

Super_Lightweight

I do some swimming also when it isn't cold. So would push-ups be considered a calisthenic workout since it is done with just the weight of the body?

That's awesome about your boxing man. How old are you and what weight do you fight at? How tall are you and what kind of reach do you have? What's your favorite combo? How did your first fight play out?

I boxed in Pensacola for 2.5 years and I'm about to start in Tallahassee. I didn't run hardly at all for my 1st fight but I won by sheer will, then my 3 fights following that I lost even though I knew more and I ran a lot. Just goes to show you got to be dedicated and not get discouraged if you have problems at the beginning.

I wish my gym had been as active as yours is. I've only had 4 fights in like 3 years. I would have about 8 fights by now but I had to take a long break because I didn't have a ride and sometimes I'd go to shows and there'd be no one for me to fight.

spinksjinx
01-31-2005, 11:52 AM
Yes, anything pushing your own weight is pretty much calisthenic.

I am 20, I am testing the waters with my weight right now. I fought at 122 but I normally walk around at 117 so I had to eat eat and eat for the weigh in. I could possibly go down to 112 if needed. I am 5'7 my arm length is 24" from the end of the fist to the arm pit.

Favorite Combo? Hmmm I like any that lands haha, Probably popping a straight and then a hook followed by an uppercut and then back with a jab. I use my jab a lot though.

First fight went ok, I was satisfied and disappointed. I got the nod but could have done better, I beat him by 2 points and ended up banging my elbow up pretty bad though and had to get a cortizone shot.

Super_Lightweight
01-31-2005, 12:07 PM
Rock on, man. I like 2-3-2 combos and 3-2-3 combos. Three solid power punches and if I can get 'em on the ropes something's gonna land. My first fight was crazy...after the fight I didn't even have the evergy to hold a drink in my hand.

You started pretty late...it sucks when you have to fight guys with way more experience, which sooner or later you will have to do. In my 3rd fight I fought a guy with 40 fights. Crazy. I know this one kid though who lost his first 20 fights then won most of the next 80.

I'm 5'8'', and I walk around at about 148 lbs and fight at 140 lbs.
70" reach but I do not know my actual arm length. You had to EAT and EAT for a weigh'in?! Damn...I wish I could eat to weigh-in...lol.

^avoid weights. Do plenty of calisthenics, running, swimming and technique work (sparring, shadowboxing etc).

My working out day (4 days a week) looks like this


Morning: 6am start, quick warm up then a four mile run

Daytime: School, im working out ma brain!

Evening: Skipping (3 rounds x 3 mins,then 3 x 1 minute of sprint skipping)

3 x 3 minutes shadow boxing

2 sets of 75 press ups
3 sets of 100 crunches
3 sets of 25 one-legged weightless squats


This is my workout for 4 days a week, i have one rest day per week, and on the other 2 days i have a muay thai class and i dnt work out

i was wondering, when you guys spar, how long do youse go for, how many rounds?

I normally spar 5 rounds twice a week. I spar with the 3 fighters in my weight class w/simialr expiriance normally, but sometimes i'll spar with the pro-welter at my gym. He's heavier and better than me, but its good learning expiriance for me.
