What kind of tests do you use as a fighter or trainer to assess your fitness levels, and how fit should you be for an ammy fight? im trying to set some realistic goals for boxing so that I can see how im progressing

I have no idea what tests (If any) are used, if your fighting 3x2 min rouns then you want to be able to spar comfortable a few more than that.

Your training will kind of replicate that so when perfroming excersize you will do them for 2/3 minutes or a combo for 2 / 3 minutes, bag work for 2 /3 minutes, mitts etc.

You will now if you are fit enough to fight for a set amount of rounds based on your training.

spar. with someone who is slightly better than you. and see when your body starts to gas out. That's the only test i know. When i started i was a 2 rounder lol now i'm up to about 8 rounds.

I would also do allot of interval training like work hard, shadowbox for 3 mins then min break then do it again, you need to familiarize yourself with dealing with fatigue and technique, you can be tired but your technique better stay the same.

I know a test from old soviet boxing:

Run 800m within 3 minutes, then 50 puhsups (roughly minute). Again, Run 800m within 3 minutes... and so on

This pretty much simulates the load you get during the fight. Check how many rounds you will last...

That does sound pretty tough, sounds like a good comparison though.

I think after the 2nd 800 meter run almost everyone would be completely spent

Yes, there is a test that Holyfield used back in the day right here - do a google search for "hatfield trains Holyfield for Tyson"

I took the concept of heart rate and modified it for myself, this is one that I have used personally:

Run for 5 mins at easy pace to warm up

Run for 3 mins hard with punching (yes, punch straight out while you are running), You donít have to punch on every single step but at least 70-80% of the time, you are trying to get your heart rate above 170 beats per minute (bpm) by the first couple minutes. Within the last 30 seconds you should be pushing to get your heart rate above 180 bpm. Once three minutes is up walk at a moderate pace, watch your heart rate and see if you can get it down to 120 bpm or less by relaxing and breathing. If you can get it there then go again for a second round. The round where you struggle with recovery and canít get your heart rate down to around the 120 bpm mark is where your current threshold is. Itís basically the round will most likely gas out in an all out fight.

If you are struggling to bring your heart rate down by the third or fourth interval then you need more work. You need to spend more time on run intervals, and all out full speed shadowbox and bagwork sessions where you push the intensity and speed up to your threshold. In other words you should be working so hard that you are begging for the bell to ring by the 4th round.

If you do not have a heart rate monitor then after 3 mins is up find your heart rate and count how many beats you get in 10 seconds, then multiply by six. If you get around 30 beats in that time then you have hit the approximate intensity for the test. The only problem with this method is that there is a lag, by the time you measure your heart rate manually you will have recovered a bit and it will have slowed down. Once a minute is up check your heart rate again for 10 seconds, you want to clock around 20 beats.

We just used sparring, How many 3min rounds you can go with a fresh opponent. 30s rest.

But I've seen a gym that uses a standard similar to the one we did in elementary school, "The presidential fitness test" I think was what it was called. It has standards for your mile time, pushups, situps, stretching, long jump, high jump. etc

I don't really see that particular way as a good standard for fighting sports, but their gym always produces very strong fighters, with lots of energy.

That is absolutely ruthless! Not so much the running, but the pressups in between!

50 pressups is no laughing matter, even without it following a passably quick 800m, but to keep that lot up for several rounds! Wow......
