Amature Boxing Training

Postby SXE VGN Tony » Wed Jul 30, 2008 2:04 am

I'm going to keep this short because I don't have the ability to do a full depth question, so bare with me here.

I am currently training for an amature boxing competition. I need to know some form of training schedule. After doing some reading I found that my current routine was not very essential for training for a boxing competition.

So to keep it simple:

I NEED A BOXING ROUTINE/SCHEDULE.
Please by all means don't be afraid to be in-depth. I really appreciate the input. If at all possible, it would be awesome if someone could give me a full week schedule.

Side information:
Height: 5'4"
Weight: 135 lbs
Fighting Style: Orthodox


Any tips and advice would be lovely. Take pity on a poor noob. :lol:

Here would be an example schedule:

M - Morning, HIIT - Evening - Gym, bagwork and sparring
T - Morning, Longer run 5-10k Evening - Bagwork, tophalf Weights
W - Morning, HIIT Evening - Bagwork, sparring
T - Morning Longer Run 5-10k, Evening - Bagwork Sparring
F - Morning HIIT, Evening bottom half weights (probably after sparring)/sparring
S - Longish walk to get the knots out of your legs and some 1/2 hour stretching
S - Rest

That would be an example of a basic twice a day workout for an amateur boxer, probably some people will disagree with me, but whatever :)

I would check out :

"Jeet Kun Do: Commentaries on the Martial Way"

OR

Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing the Human Body

Both were compiled by John Little from the personal records, training logs and notes of Bruce Lee. It has great plans and routines. They are very extensive, so it would take me longer than I would like to put them here, but here is a sample cardio/warm up routine listed.

[quote]1. Road work:
Jog (1 minute) - Sprint (Keep it up) - Walk (1 minute) in as many sets as you can

2. Skill Conditioning
a. Shadow kick-boxing -- 3 minutes (1 minute rest) (Note: Loosen up in good economical form)

b. Shadow kick-boxing 3 minutes (1 minute rest) (Note: work hard - push yourself - speed/power)

c. Skip rope - 5 minutes (1 1/2 minutes rest) (Note: try all footwork)

d. Heavy bag - 3 minutes (1 minute rest) (Note: individual punches plus combinations)

e. Heavy bag - 3 minutes (1 minute rest) (Note: individual kicks plus combinations)

f. Light bag - 3 minutes (Note: Individual punches plus conditioning)

g. Shadow kick-boxing - 2 minutes (Note: loosen up)


That seems like a killer work out. Run through that a couple times with some mit work, head and foot movement work and then a few rounds of sparing a couple days a week should get you in shape. If the above is confusion, unclear or anything else at all, that is a direct quote from "Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing the Human Body" by John Little. And do a lot of ab work, since punching power comes from the core, and if the ab muscles are stronger you are less likely to be hurt from body shots.

Are you training at a gym now? Yes, I have a gym in my house. (Real one.)
How long have you been boxing? year and a half
What are your weaknesses? None really.
When is your bout? 3-6 months or so, I'm not quite sure when the next one is that is close around my area.
How many days a week can you train?Everyday. =)
What are you doing now trainingwise? Circuit training 1 day on 1 day off, 3 times a day and running 2 miles on the off days
How is your diet? I don't measure and count anything, but my diet is very good. However I have started having cravings for toast and popcorn.... I haven't had them in 5 months... Anyways. Got off track. I would like some insight on some "diets" I should aim for. Calories/protein/fat/carbs/ect. Foods to consume ect.

This I don't believe. If you had no weaknesses, then why bother to train at all? You would be unbeatable already. :wink: Video tape yourself sparring and watch it with a trainer or partner. You will see flaws in your game that you might now think of while actually sparring.

You know I did that and my momma has it somewhere and I can't find it. :(

However my biggest weakness I would say is I will occasionally drop my glove to block a punch, but its very rare. It usually only happens when I'm sparring with people I spar with daily, because I know exactly where they are going to hit, other people I don't.

But that would be my biggest weakness... that and having weird cravings for toast (with jam of course) and popcorn for the past 2 days...

It would be good if you could get videos when you shadowbox and sparr and post them at youtube. Then maybe we could help you in what specific details you need to work on.

And also, you have to learn your strengths and weeknesses. Everyone has them :D

But in general learn to move fast. Get in and out. And practise some combos so they feel natural and just happens in situations.

And imo, 1 day on/1 off wouldn't be enough for an amateur fight (at least in my area). Try picking up your training a little bit and try to do as much sparring (with people as good as you/or better) that you can, a program like the one i posted earlier would be more like it. True the bout will only be 3 rounds but you want to be able to go hard for 3 rounds, not be a shrinking violet. Your weight sounds good as there isn't much to lose for your fight.
Another thing, just a little observation from amateur fights i've watched are that a lot of first time amateurs get ruffled when they first fight and become headhunters, work on your bodyshots as they can hurt like hell and they look good for the judges too!
