    Hey guys,

    Tell me about some of your favorite boxing/MT/Kickboxing drills for conditioning that you do. I don't mean shin or ab conditioning, but the drills that you run though that get your lungs and arms/legs burning when you do them.

    I like to do 10 sets of 10 reps of burpees along with shadow boxing for 30 seconds for active rest.

    Seriously how stupid can a person be. Ignorant AND stupid, that's a dangerous combination.

    It actually "sounds" legit for tough guy talk. Fits right into the hard work, guts, glory, being a man old school approach of practice makes perfect.

    Whats sad is some actually still push it these days, the vid looks old so I give it a pass.

    You take any teen from the street, they will find those training the real deal. I would probably too if i had landed in that kind of gym first... And if you start with that mentality, it's easy to keep it later on... It's like bro science...You see it working for some, and you don't questions the consequences...

    Anyway for the op:

    I just like to blast away any remaining energy on the heavy bag, after the session. Only speed and power, technique goes mostly out the window. It can be combos, or just the same roundhouse kick again and again... I like to do it with time, so i am forced to push all the way to the end.
    Depending on the session, some times just 1x3min round may kill me.
    It also helps having a partner motivating you, when you take too long to catch up your breath...

    God damn man, a hundred burpees? As someone who does cross training on the side I can say I am very impressed by that.

    5min burpees (as many as possible) was a pretty common challenge in the S&C forum years back. It sucks, but its probably one of the best out there.

    Thank you for the compliment, however you can easily achieve that. Just start off small and work your way up.

    Sparring with controlled partners (not gym warring) as many decent length rounds as you can go until technique begins to suffer or muscle exhaustion has set in then to the heavy bag for pure volume until the lungs are ready to explode. Duration varies but going past where you think you'll die (hint, you won't) is a good starting point.
