Boxing training, the best ways to get in superior condition fast!
Think about conditioning if you must drop some excess weight.
The most prevalent mistake we can do for weight loss is just focusing on weight loss!
Let's me tell you a story: it was a few years ago. A professional kick boxer called me for helping him to get ready for his upcoming fight: the WKC World Championship. The event was in Agadir, on the Atlantic coast of Morocco.
We made the decision to set up the training camp there, so he can get perfectly acclimated to the hot weather of August.
We had a 6 weeks training camp. 6 weeks is a good duration and I know by experience it's possible to move in top shape in this particular length of time.
But he did not reveal to me the whole thing before he came in: he was out of shape and nearby to 40 pounds overweight, I mean 40 pounds over his official combat weight!
6 weeks and 40 pounds to lose !!! Well, we are picking up some fun in this camp!
It was a tough training camp and he managed to make the weight! But we focused mainly on conditioning and strength, considering when you have to lose a lot of weight very fast, you may likely end up being very weak. For a boxer, it doesn't work: way too much danger is involved in the ring.
It's why my solution was about conditioning: when you get in an outstanding shape, you lose fat faster. The programs included cardiovascular conditioning (interval training and speed), strength training for power, along with a well-defined nutrition to accelerate metabolism and recovery, improve stamina.
Not easy in this case ... the fighter got 3 different workouts a day! Interval training was the major strategy with various timed intervals and recovery. We didn't use any fancy equipment, just bodyweight exercises and compound exercises with free weights.
The third workout was the boxing and kickboxing training: shadow boxing and jump rope, mitts with the boxing trainer, heavy bag routines, speed bag and sparring 3 times per week.
Nutrition was accurate with a timing depending on the training schedule. The program was no sugar, little carbs, lot of vegetables, some fruits (watermelon), great deal of proteins, mainly fish, plenty of water, daily supplement protein shakes to help for recovery and energy level.
He made the weight at the pre-fight weigh-in, it was challenging, he needed to dehydrate in the last 24 hours to lose the last 3 pounds.
He did a great fight, he won by knockout in the six round following a barrage of punches and kicks.
You probably don't want to workout 3 times a day, but if you have to drop some weight, start to focus on your conditioning coupled with boxing training; achieve a fantastic shape. Do it step by step but be persistent and your stubborn fat will disappear for good. Just focus on your conditioning and boxing, and eat appropriately, no crazy diet is required.
