Guerrero: CrossFit Training Gives Endurance Big Boost

By Mike Coppinger

Robert Guerrero has taken an orthodox approach to his boxing training for Yoshihiro Kamegai: CrossFit.

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that contains elements of Olympic weight lifting, high-intensity interval training and plyometrics, among other exercises.

CrossFit has touted "The Ghost" as the company's first sponsored boxer. He says he's seeing big-time results after not doing any weightlifting for many past camps under trainer/manager Bob Santos.

"When you train and train and train, you tend to become one dimensional and fall into bad habits," Guerrero said on a media conference call Tuesday. "I had to switch it up. ... I've teamed up with CrossFit for this camp and have really improved. My endurance is through the roof."

Guerrero fights Kamegai on Saturday at the StubHub Center on Showtime.

It's not just circuit training though. They use different modalities in the circuits (not just weightlifting, not just machines, not just calisthenics, not just running, but everything mixed together.) It's an interesting time in boxing right now. A lot of…

[QUOTE=jas;14675695]So from what I'm reading , cross fit being original is a farce? It's just circuit training which has been around for years[/QUOTE] I guess it's original in the sense that they incorporate Oly lifting, and gymnastics. But yeah, pretty…
