Successful boxing requires a combination of speed, power, strength, and endurance. Bulk can also be an advantage, depending on weight classification.
At a very basic level, think of the difference between boxing strength and conditioning training as you would the difference between quality and quantity.
Strength training will help you run faster because it will make your muscles stronger, allowing you to make more rapid and explosive movements to increase your punching power. Conversely, your conditioning determines how long you’ll be able to run before the body gets too tired to make those movements and how long you’ll last during your boxing workout. As you might imagine, training in both manners is of high importance for boxers.
In truth, most people understand the underlying difference between wanting to improve their strength and wanting to improve their conditioning but are often confused or misled as to the best exercises for either. We want to help clear up that confusion.
Weight training, or resistance training, used intelligently, can promote and enhance these athletic characteristics. Because all athletes have individual needs, Coach Larry Wade taylors a program to meet your goals and can modify for specific styles, age, goals, facilities available and so on.
