How to workout while preventing burnout.

LIFT

The Hi-Low method of managing stressors prevents over training the cns, overloading it, which can lead to a burned out feeling, depending on your training age, plan deloads accordingly to rest your joints, cns, and train your connective tissue with the break from less intensity but more volume with moderate intensity targeting the connective tissue ( anatomical adaption) this will prevent feeling burned out, allowing you to train harder longer and safer.

Get some rocking, rolling, crawling movements in, take care of your joints while feeding your brain in an ergonomically flawed world, get in and stay in shape, train your heart to be more efficient (cardiac output training 30-60 min, exercising HR 120-150bpm) speeding recovery and increasing work capacity which will make everything that more efficient and better.

As far as feeling bored? Set some real goals. What are you exactly training for?

Are Power Punchers Born, Or Can They Be Created?

Gennady
Is punching power god given or can it be developed? God given is another phrase for genetically inclined.

Teddy Atlas recently said on ESPN 2 telecast in reference to Barry Hunter whom by the way works with real fighters everyday unlike Atlas who sits behind a mic and has well lost touch with reality and his touch with training fighters hence why nobody will hire his ass went on to state you can’t teach power or develop it in a fighter when Hunter’s goal going into that ESPN 2 show was Austin Trout displaying it, that which they have worked on in the gym.

Granted if one is more slow twitch dominated than fast twitch that will limit their power production, it is foolish to think anything is such a closed case with an athlete, and fighters are athletes and performance can be improved within them with science combined in practical workouts that strengthen the fighters weakness that can produce more punching power.

What produces power? The what the hell just happened punch that was landed? Speed yes, and that cannot be improved? Force behind that speed so that cannot be improved? It’s about the RFD (rate of force development) that’s where the science comes in AND where skill coaches who are not educated with it fail to see the Forrest from the trees with development, hence their short sited thoughts.

Also keep in mind, Charley Goldman produced the wrecking ball, power punching, shattering elbows, shoulders, and wrists when he banged on them dynamo Rocky Marciano was with a shoe lace teaching him ideal punching stance and balance!

Both skill and GPP development go hand in hand in developing bone shattering power. And one more thing that is over looked that fuels it like gasoline poured on fire, attitude.
Michael Moore when he was a destructive juggernaut light heavyweight WBO champion at 12 fights! Would lock himself in a dark room and watch violent movies, feeding his insanity and thoughts of destruction in the ring, Tyson had his own personal demons that fueled it, Sonny Liston his own nasty attitude that rubbed of on Foreman, Gerald “The G Man” McClellan a killer when he ripped that left hook to the body and had you hurt had it too.

It can be developed, perhaps not mimicked to resemble Gennady Golovkin’s whom by the way Freddie Roach told me has the best balance he has seen in a while and excellent ring generalship, but it can be improved.

What develops it though and to what extent is SPP, GPP training, attitude, and what will limit it to how much, genetic make up of slow twitch to fast twitch fibers, hence where punches are born.

Boxing Training Tip: Why To Use Split Stance Unilateral Exercises.

Pull2

 

SLING3 SLING2

 

I like using split stance 1 arm band pulls with my clients because of the big bang affect it has on their body and how you can progress it into a hybrid movement as you can see in picture two below, this being a pull, twist, and lunge pattern all in one.

The 1 arm cable pull trains the twist and pull patterns so you are targeting the shoulder girdle muscles in the pull and the oblique muscles in the twist pattern.

The posterior oblique sling of the body is also trained, along with the deep longitudinal and lateral sling. Turning this into a 1 arm band push recruits the anterior oblique sling.

Look at the graph in picture 3 for the different slings on the body.

Using a band versus a cable or dumbell also changes the resistance profile of the exercise as the band eccentrically will shoot you back in the pull pattern so the body is under tension eccentrically as well.

You can see how musical chair machine training is really dumb down training on the nervous system and the slings of the body.

The law of accommodation comes into effect.

The body must be continually challenged or regression takes place.

You increase the challenge by the patterns used in he movement along with the stimulation by using a slit stance again as you can see in the graph.

Good trainers understand functional anatomy and how to micro progress an exercise for their clients so they are continually challenging their bodies appropriately.

Cheerleaders count reps, shout, and applaud.

So keep the bar raised high.
