    i've been boxing for a few years and our gym is finally hooking up and communicating with other gyms and sending out our fighters for fights. i've had one fight before and noticed how much not having a conditioning coach in your gym sucks. i've done a ton of reading on the creatine phosphate system, lactic threshold, and aerobics in comparsion to one another. I've been running now for 4 months or so about 2 to 4 days a week (2-3 miles per session) and now finally i have boxing gym access. i'm going to take a fight the 9th of october which means i have roughly 4 weeks to train. I've been training mildly for the past 2 months and I'm definitely in good enough condition for plyos. i'll be at the boxing gym itself approximately 3 days a week.

    what do you guys recommend???

    i also need to cut 10 lbs to make the 165 weight class on top of it.
    i want to focus primarily on conditioning, i have solid technique and a good ring sense and plan on doing a lot of sparring, beyond that i've been trying to incorporate burpee intervals to improve my lactic conditioning and 10 second burnouts w/ 30 second rest intervals for Cr/Ph efficiency training. What else can i be doing?

    the latter is not an option. and so because of this i'm putting in a lot of time and reading into conditioning specifically. i just got my paperwork to be an assistant coach since i've been going on and off for over a decade, (since i was 11!) and i plan on being the conditioning specialist in our gym and that way i'd be making our gym better rather than just saying fuck it and letting someone else do the work. i signed up for this forum because i was told i could learn a TON here.

    If you are going to coach people, you should really follow paolo's first bit of advice. Joel's book is awesome.

    duely noted.

    i almost totally forgot about sprinting. i didn't want to focus too much of my training on my legs but this certainly wouldn't be out of the question. thnx

    Spar alot of rounds, depending on the time of rounds you do. Every minute rotate in a fresh person to spar with and take your minute between rounds to rest. Make your training as close as possible to actual fighting. Good Luck and taper down close to your fight, in other words peak and don't overtrain. You don't want to leave your fight in the gym so to say.

    I know you said you will be running a couple days, but you will be at the boxing gym 3 days a week. If that's the case you gotta do more on the other days. You should be training some form of boxing 5-6 days, whether your doing bag rounds at home or even shadow boxing and drilling footwork. Yes to burpees, sprints, if you have access to any tire workouts, plyometrics, etc. do that stuff too. Just make sure you are doing at least an hour of work pretty much every day except sunday.

    yeah the non boxing gym days i am running for at least 2 miles or using the elliptical if my knees and ankles are screaming. plus doing a lot of conditioning drills and plyometrics. i'm noticing my legs get the most tired when i'm squatted and maneuvering (like doing footwork while i'm weaving) so i've been throwing 50 pounds on the bar and doing the bottom 1/2 of squats to near failure. i try to use the gym for at least an hour on those days... but not to over exert myself on days before sparring so i'm not bringing garbage to my practice sessions.

    i found this really cool stuff on youtube, jeff fenech had an interval conditioning system that i found really beats down my shoulders (and i focus on them obviously) and a good rope skipping warm up. just put in boxing conditioning and he's got the red shirt and black spandex pants :/
