THE ARIZA REGIME IN TRAINING CAMP

“Early morning sessions of two hours start at 5.30am, with warm-up and warm-down,” Ariza explains. “When I have Manny Pacquiao and Amir together at track and running sessions every sprint is really competitive, every hill run.

“It is never the same, so we go to the dunes at Malibu, swim in the sea at Santa Monica, run in the Hollywood Hills. It’s about variety, and all training is in intervals to simulate a boxing match, round by round. Even swimming in the sea can simulate being left on your own in the ring.

FITNESS/STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

Mon – Track running and sprints, 400m and 200m sprints, UCLA track

Tues – 30 lengths in Olympic size pool or in the sea for a mile at Santa Monica

Weds – Stairs or hill running, Hollywood Hills

Thurs – Strength and conditioning session, Gym.

Fri – Sand dunes – Malibu

Sat – Cone drills, lateral drills, similar to soccer players.

BOXING SESSIONS

Ariza: “Khan’s afternoon sessions in the Wild Card with Freddie Roach alternate. I make sure he is hydrated at these times” Mon, Weds, Fri – Sparring

Tues, Thurs, Sat — Khan works pads, speedball and strategy with Roach.

MEALS/REST

5am Vitamins and Protein shake before training.

8am Oatmeal/protein recovery shake after training.

8-10am Sleep.

10am Breakfast — eggs, toast, beans.

10.30am-12.00pm Rest, computer games (favourites are Fight Night Boxing and Fifa 11)

12pm Protein shake

12-3pm Gym — Khan works with Freddie Roach, Ariza completes warm-up, warm-down

3pm Protein and carbohydrate mixture recovery shake

3-4pm Strengthening/stretch down

6pm Dinner — chicken or fish, rice and vegetables

9pm Cottage cheese

7-8 hours sleep per day.

DIET/CALORIFIC INTAKE

“Amir has around 200gms of protein a day when he is in training camp, with seven separate meals a day for 5 to 7 weeks,” Ariza says. “He consumes 6,500-6,800 calories a day, and burns 5,000 calories in training, in 3-4 hours of high intensity training every 24 hours.

“A fortnight before the fight, we taper down. In fight week, he starts at around 150lbs and we reduce the calories, and his fluids to get to the 140lb limit. Teri Tom, a sports scientist at UCLA, has devised a morning/evening two-a-day vitamin programme for Amir.”

5k in calories is a ridiculous amount to burn in a day/training session. Most I do(when not injured or rehabing) is 1.5k a day/training session.

Talk about putting in work. Must be great being a rich ass pro boxer. Can wake up, do work, go back to sleep at 10 am. Wake up, gym time. Go home, do some calls, eat, sleep. :lol1:

Oatmeal
Eggs, toast and beans
Chicken/fish, rice and vegetables
Cottage cheese
3x Protein shake
1x Protein & carbohydrate shake

How does that amount to 6500 - 6800 calories?

I eat a similar diet to that, except without the eggs, toast and beans, the rice and with a couple less protein shakes, but with a lot of fruit and some nuts and I'm sure mine only comes to roughly around 2000 calories.

The Protein shakes may be homemade. You can put anything in a blender with protein powder.

True. I'd love to know what's going in there, that's a huge calorie boost

Ariza training and conditioning is very close to perfection and well suited for Amir Khan

Do you have any proof of this?

Ariza is as incompetent as it is as a Strength Coach. I doubt he even knows what a steroid is.

Ariza used to work for Victor Conte at Conte's former place of business (B.A.L.C.O.).

Ariza has someone else buy Conte's products through the "underground market".
