Boxing conditioning is key to being a successful fighter.

Welcome to boxing conditioning here we will establish a basic work out to help start your cardiovascular conditioning.

The most important part of boxing conditioning in my eyes are the heart and lungs. To develop these you must first start with cardio intensive work out.

Anyone can stand up and throw punches for 30 seconds when they are fresh. Now try still holding you arms up and throwing those same punches after you have been punching for the last 9 minutes.

You can always tell when a fighter has grown tired during in a fight. This is usually caused by poor conditioning prior to the fight. The fighter who is still fresh and still throwing crisp jabs is going to prevail over the fighter who barley can hold his hands up and gasping for air. This point alone makes cardiovascular training a crucial part of your preparation.

We will base everything in this stage 1 workout program off of someone who has never trained. So if you have trained and are in great shape this should be relatively easy and painless.

Listed below is a 1 month cardio work out plan.

Walking=Brisk walk fast enough to keep heart elevated

Jogging= Light run pace is a bit faster than a walk

Run= Hard paced jog

Sprint= Running as fast as your body will allow with out injury.
