Boxing Training Advice-Life Tip-Dedication & Passion Defined.

I have always loved and been devoted to boxing so much that I never went to high school prom, I fought in the Golden Glove Championships both my Junior and Senior year, I use to run home from parties to watch my idol James Toney fight on HBO, I ran home from the Summer Fest one year, back when the Fest was HUGE and was the big daddy fest of the summer to watch James Toney KO and stretch Prince Charles Williams.

Williams literally bent over as he fell to the canvas.

I quit jobs as a teenager that conflicted with my training.

Dumped girl friends over boxing.

Moved out of state twice for it.

I have spent A LOT of time studying fighters and fights.

This is why I’m a historian as well, and a damn good one, I may add.

Met my boxing idol James Toney, spent the day with him and told him how much I appreciated his skill and talent in his prime.

He was impressed with how much i knew about him and how exact I was.

Got to meet and debate my with boxing historian idol Bert Sugar earning his praise.

Both were NOT by chance either.

The universe rewards us for our toiling in our craft.

To be doing what I’m doing now is no fluke.

Owning a gym, selling a book, dvds, owning a paid online membership site, hosting successful fight shows, training amateur and soon to be pro champions.

Years of focus, sacrifice, passion, learning, listening, and growing released into what I do now, eating off my knowledge, this is ALL I do.

That is why I can spit knowledge at will once that camera is on.

Dedication and passion for the sport since I was 14 years old.

Years of accumulating learning.

It takes a lot to impress me today.

I can still get in the ring and do work.

I’m hard on quasi trainers and half ass training methods for a reason.

Many fighters disgust me with their lack of dedication as do many trainers.

Some of my fighters get me beat red in the face from frustration and disgust from their laziness and LACK of dedication.

As do some trainers disgust me with their BS.

You GET what you put in over the years.

We REAP what we sow.

What are YOU doing with your life?

What do you STILL want to do?

DO IT.

It all starts with REAL dedication and being possessed with passion for your craft.

Great things WILL happen and you truly GET what you DESERVE.

This Will Make Or Break You.

Woke up this morning feeling like a Greek God.

Getting my sleep dialed back in is why.

Sleep makes or breaks us, it significantly affects training.

The anabolic or catabolic hormones that are released and flood your body are greatly influenced by sleep.

Program design must be based off of lifestyle.must

Meaning if you come into the gym from a night of no sleep and your readieness level is low, the program, or shall I say workouts since many trainers program on the fly nowadays, changes.

From 10pm-2am, it’s anabolic hormonal physical repair, from 2am-6am, physcogenic repair.

You wanna train harder and be better?

Sleep better!

Boxing Training Tips For Beginners: Don’t Ever Just Copy.

I’m posting this clip again. You cannot just copy of a fighter, one fighter’s style may not work for you.

Would the D’Amato style of boxing that once briefly made Mike Tyson a raging insane destructive machine have worked for Lennox Lewis?

Would the Mayweather school of boxing have worked for Mike Tyson?

Of course not.

But little bits of it could.

You study the greats and very good fighters and add to your own style and physical dimensions. Just don’t blatantly copy and assume.
