Westside Barbell Seminar Notes.

Here are a couple notes from the Westside Seminar this past Saturday morning.  Really think about these.

-Don’t let an exercise take more out of you than you get out of it.

-A 2 rep max lift isn’t a max. A max is a single all out. Strength endurance is beyond 1 rep max.

-Don’t train what you have, train what you don’t have.

-Train exercises you are bad at, not what you are good at.

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.

Post with any questions or comments…

Create Your Own Ring Identity.

The best advice I can give to any young fighter is to develop their own style and ring identity.

Take from the greats, your boxing idol, but mold that into your own style.

It was said Muhammad Ali once waited 4 hours outside the gym of former light heavyweight champion Willie Pastrano just to watch him shadow box in the ring and watch him move.

Ali ADORED Willie’s footwork. Willie had smooth, nimble, quick feet.

Ali had superb footwork.

Now you know why.

Willie was ironically trained by Angelo Dundee.

People don’t know that, for as great as Ali was, he took from other good and great fighters and molded it into his own never could be replicated style.

Ali also took from his idol Sugar Ray Robinson calling him the master.

Those who tried to be like Ali we never heard of for obvious reasons, they got KO’d.

Tyson took took from Dempsey, Marciano, etc…

James Toney took from Ezzard Charles, Jersey Joe Walcott, Archie Moore etc…

So don’t try to be Floyd, take from him, but mold what he does best into your own style.

This is how all the greats became great.

Taking from others and creating their own identity…
