Boxing training, the best ways to get in superior condition fast!
If you have to drop some weight, consider conditioning.
The biggest mistake we can do for weight loss is nothing but focusing on weight loss!
Let's me tell you a story: it was a few years ago. A professional kick boxer called me for training him to get ready for his upcoming fight: the WKC World Championship. The event was in Agadir, on the Atlantic coast of Morocco.
We opted to establish the training camp there, so he can get very well adapted to the hot weather of August.
We had a 6 weeks training camp. 6 weeks is a good length and I know by experience it's achievable to get in top shape in this amount of time.
He did not tell me everything just before he arrived: he was out of shape and close to 40 pounds overweight, I mean 40 pounds above his official fighting weight!
6 weeks and 40 pounds to lose !!! Well, we are picking up some fun in this camp!
It was a hard training camp and he was able to make the weight! But we concentrated mostly on conditioning and strength, considering when you have to lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may end up being very weak. For a fighter, it doesn't work: too much risk is involved in the ring.
It's why my strategy was about conditioning: when you get in a terrific shape, you lose fat faster. The programs included cardiovascular conditioning (interval training and speed), strength training for power, along with a precise nutrition to accelerate metabolism and recovery, improve stamina.
Not easy in this situation ... the fighter had 3 different workouts a day! The first one was early morning on the beach and was targeted on cardiovascular conditioning: the intensity was sometimes high, sometimes low. Interval training was the main method with various timed intervals and recovery. We always prioritized the right intensity and optimum recovery. The second workout was mid-day and was a strength workout: full body strength with a special focus on the core. We didn't utilize any fancy equipment, just bodyweight routines and compound exercises with free weights.
The third workout was the boxing and kickboxing workout: 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), lot of proteins, mainly fish, plenty of water, daily nutritional supplement protein shakes to assist for recovery and energy level.
He made the weight at the pre-fight weigh-in, it was not easy, he had to dehydrate in the last 24 hours to lose the last 3 pounds.
He did a great fight, he triumphed by knockout in the six round following a barrage of kicks and punches.
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 in addition to boxing training; achieve a terrific shape. Do it step by step but be consistent and your stubborn fat will disappear completely. Simply focus on your conditioning and boxing, and eat right, no crazy diet is required.
