Gotta have that nice mouthguard if you got pretty teeth....

Man, I know how the addiction is....All I want to do is train train train and I do it so early in the morning (5am) that the rest of my day is boring....The rush is awesome.

On my lifting days it usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half...On my boxing days it varies....But majority of the time around the 2 hour mark...

19 with my 20th birthday tomorrow.....

My endurance is sky high....I was sparring with a guy the other day and we went 10 3 minute rounds and around round 8 is when I felt a bit of fatigue and my legs were a little weak....Not bad really...

Been training for boxing just a couple months, before I was a lifter.

I train pretty hard and vigorous (atleast I think I do)


To get my endurance so high, I just did a lot of roadwork...I would sprint up every hill I had saw....I would run up and down them backwards sidestep up hills...Sprint up 100s of stairs...Do it all.....Run 10 miles...


Now I have gotten my conditioning so good, I can last a good while before tiring.....

I like to move a lot so endurance is what I need, so I wont tire.
