View Full Version : Training to become an amateur figther

08-15-2011, 05:30 PM
So, today I told my trainer I want to be an amateur fighter. He told me to train my hardest for 6 months 3 times a week and show him I'm improving. But 3 times a week seems like so little training to me. What do you guys think, should I do some additional running? Or perhaps something else? My gym is open 5 days a week, so I could go more often. You think thats a good idea? I'd like to hear your thoughts!

well do roadwork of course, you can do that on the offdays, run longer and harder.

but your trainer is letting you rest between grueling workouts, i'm assuming, it does need to recuperate.

if you wanna train 5 days a week, you're gonna have to train at a lower intensity, so your body can keep up and not risk injury and such.

for a beginner, 3 days a week is fine for 6-8 weeks. you can then later try all 5 days. on the side, swim or jog a lot
