    Learn how to use a jump rope, do some conditioning.

    Why not start now?

    dont do any technical work on your own. just condition yourself and if you have a good boxing coach be ready for the best workouts on earth

    Conditioning.

    The day you go in, don't think you're going to become a boxing master. Just do what your coach says, start by tucking your chin and keeping your hands up.

    what they said. just know that while it may seem a little "slow" at first, you are being taught the basics that are important. Enjoy

    If you are currently working different body parts on alternating days (I.E: Mon: chest Wed: legs....etc), stop. It will benefit you more to start circuit training, doing complexes, or high rep full body movements (burpees) before starting. This lets your body get used to using all your muscles and recovering Vs. just a few. Obviously, jump rope and cardio training will help.

    Thanks for the help everyone, anything specific that will help me on weights or should I just concentrate on my conditioning?

    Stroll in wearing a tap out hat, crooked to the side (important), then spit on the ground. Quickly determine who the best person in the gym is and be like "AY BITCH! Wanna get fucked up?" And have your first sparring match, youll gain lots of respect that way.
