Hey You guys whats up Im Jacob and I just started boxing a little over a month ago. I had pirror back yard experience but decide I wanted to learn how to do it right!!! I go down to my gym 3-4 days a week sometimes more if I can. I dont really have a trainer I need extra money for that. so when i go down there I do quit a bit of bag work. first just working on my technique. Then go about three rounds all out on the heavy bag but i make sure I dont get sloppy. I also sparr as much as I can. the guys i spar with have piror boxing experience which is good. every time I sparr with them. I do fairly good just stick and move and press the action on them and every time we are done I get there input on what mistakes I make and we go over it. I tend to wanna brawl which is not good, but i have been catch myself befoe i do that. But anyways I just wanna hear about what you guys do for training and how boxing is coming a long for you. I dont care if you have been doing it for 10 years or a few weeks, I just wanna know how different boxers train and there stories. I also need to get on a strength and training routine something for beginners. I also work on cardio. Also who in here has competed in amature events? There is one in september out at my local fair grounds one of the guys at my gym said I should do it. I never talked to the guy since the other day. I was wondering how long are the rounds.
