Boxing Workout Tips: The Power Of Breathing.

My message to a few of my students tonight, if you don’t master how to breathe durining sparring & a fight it will always feel like you are out of shape.

Often it’s not about training that much harder….

Its learning how to breathe THAT much better.

Breathe.

Breather though your stomach for deeper fuller breathes that will increase rover and mental focus.

Rob’s Rant: The Biggest Problem In Boxing Now, It’s Gotten Out Of Hand.

Man, I am sick and F***ING tired of hearing this weight issue crap in making weight.

Fighters trying to shrink down to where their bodies don’t want to go, and IF they do make the weight, that’s the win, it doesn’t come in the ring.

The fighter pays a huge long term price for this cutting weight shit. See Fernando Vargas, Ricky Hatton, Castillo, etc…

I would weigh them one hour before the fight. If they can’t make the weight, then it means they don’t belong in that weight class. PERIOD.

I will never do that to any of my fighters, cut that much weight for a delusional advantage that doesn’t exist because I understand the body and the aftermath suffered from doing something so dumb.

If a fighter wants to be a champion in a weight class, weigh that weight, don’t weigh it for a just the weigh in and blow back up. You do NOT belong in that weight class.

What is the problem of fighting a weight class higher of the weight class they are having massive problems shrinking down too? The fear? Boxing is about skill vs skill, not about making weight and hoping for the best in seeking an advantage of re-hydrating to a fighter that belongs in two divisions higher!

Fucking crusierweights trying to win super middleweight titles. COMMON!

Gym Notes: The Best Time To Work On Defense.

One of my students has a fight coming up this weekend. He’s in great shape and ready to go. The area that I’ve been focusing on in the final preparations is staying composed when fatigued.

Many fighters literally fall apart as they fatigued getting caught AND KTFO! They often work on their defensive drills when they’re fresh.

I like to push my fighters a different way. I have them work on slipping, rolling, and blocking punches when they’re dog tired from the different bag drills we use.

I train them to fight through the fatigue, manage it, and then overcome it by taking it head on after these taxing drills.

It’s VERY challenging to stay composed and maintain good defense when the fighters baked. Working on defense while in this state allows the fighter to grow a stronger backbone and allow them to stay together for a win in a tough close fight.

Everyone looks like a champ when fresh, but fatigue shows what a fighter is really made of. My fighters are liking what they are becoming by taking it head on when training this way and I know you will too.
