Please, no posting references or even commenting about this guy's book. He emailed me *****ing about members posting pieces of his book in the forums and throwing lawsuit threats around. I gave him a piece of my mind and told him that I would clean up the posts.

He was a writer who made a book titled boxings greatest workouts or something and it had little snippets of each pro fighters training regimen. It sounded like a good book but the information that was posted on this site made me dislike it, it was very vague and unuseful from my perspective.

This idiot Gary Todd,he has alot of nerve because he used the very information presented in his book without the boxers knowlege that they were being interviewed for a book! he approached them "as a fan" never letting on that he planned to print what they told him for his own personal gain. at least that was the case with Aaron Pryor & Matthew Saad Muhammed so i would have to think that it was the same with all the others i hope he gets sued ....and its a shame because i think the book is great (although not detailed enough)but well worth the $14.95 considering a magazine these days will run you 5-6$

Man, when everyone was posting all these workouts I started to think this would happen. I understand that the guy wouldn't want his book given away for free.
Anyway, let's give out workouts that weren't from Todd's book. Here's the most brutally difficult assrapingest training program I've ever come across.

Jim Jeffries Training
Morning
Run 14 miles in 2 hours, alternate 100 yard sprints and jogging.

Evening
Play Handball
Heavybag: 25 minutes
Jump Rope: 20 minutes
Sparring: 12 to 16 rounds
Wrestle and throw medicine ball

Anyone seen anything more difficult than this? If you have, post it.

Commenting on it should be ok, but I won't. I had to check out this book and see what the big deal was. No comment from me. But Don't most writer need critics to improve their writing style? The consumer look to critics to influence their opinions. When somebody says they do not want anybody to give an opinion on their work, I assume it must be garbage.

The workout of kostya tszyu comes close, but i got to say that jogging 14 miles and sparring 12 to 16 rounds is crazy. that's conditioning.

Tszyu's is very tough, but Jeffries program is still the hardest one I've ever seen. I'd like to know more details about Rocky Marciano's program.
All I know about his is that he ran 5-6 miles everyday, 9-10 when a fight had been signed, and 12-15 miles everyday in the week before the fight. He would sprint up and down a hill, hit a 300lb heavybag, and walk 5-10 miles in the evening. I want to know the details though, how long did it take him to do his runs? How long did he hit the bag? What else did he do? I've never been able to find these details.
