Hey, it’s Eric.

Before we discuss the 2 phase program that will help you take your boxing fitness to the next level, we’ve got to cover one of the biggest controversies with respect to training for boxing…

CAN WEIGHT TRAINING MAKE YOU SLOW?

The correct answer is “YES, it can.”

And here’s the thing…

A certain type of weight training will, without a doubt, make your punches seem like they’re traveling through molasses and give your opponent the time to get out of the way and knock you silly.

In fact, this is the most popular type of weight training in the world.

So if you are lifting weights like this, you’d actually be better off stopping and doing nothing but boxing.

However, if you train like how I’m going to show you, you can expect INCREASED punching power.

You’ll know this when you start hearing things like, “Hey man, what have you been doing in the gym?” from your sparring partners.

You can also expect NEVER-ENDING CARDIO.

Obviously this is super important in a fight, but it’s just as important for training, because it’ll help you develop your techniques, combinations and boxing skills faster than ever since you’ll be able to train and train and train instead of sitting on the sidelines, sucking wind.

And before I outline the 2 phase program that will give you the benefits we just discussed, let’s go back to the type of weight training that will slow you down…

aliMany boxing trainers say weight training is useless based on the fact that the boxers of old, guys like Willie Pep, Sonny Liston and Muhammad Ali didn’t lift weights.

You’ll hear things like, “If ____ (insert former boxing champ here) didn’t lift weights, you don’t need to lift weights, either.”

The thing is that back in those days, the dominant method of weight training was from the world of bodybuilding.

You see, bodybuilding rapidly gained popularity in the 50′s and 60’s and bodybuilding methods were all that people knew about lifting weights.

bodybuilderIf an athlete wanted to start weight training, they’d find the biggest guy they could to teach them their methods.

There was no one else and it would seem to make sense.

UNFORTUNATELY, BODYBUILDING IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST WAY TO LIFT WEIGHTS FOR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE.

A typical bodybuilding workout involves training 2 or 3 bodyparts with 3 exercises, doing around 3 sets for 10 reps for each exercse at a controlled tempo and resting around a minute between sets.

When you intentionally slow your movements down, you’re training your muscles and nervous system to be slow.

Not good if speed and power are what you’re after…

You also slow down (and absolutely murder your cardio) because of the dominant energy system used when you lift like a bodybuilder. I’ll go into more scientific depth later.

Plus, the typical exercises favoured by bodybuilders are linear movements that don’t train the most important movement pattern in boxing: rotation.

We’ll talk about all of this and more in a sec but the bottom line that you need to know right now is that if you lift weights like a bodybuilder, you will be slow. Guaranteed.

Fortunately for you, bodybuilding is not the only way.

At the highest levels in every sport, athletes are lifting weights to help them be the best they can be.

So what makes boxers different?

In short, NOTHING.

It’s just that boxing is a sport filled with a lot traditional, old-school beliefs that have no basis in science (or reality).

AND HERE’S THE OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU…

Once you understand the scientific basis behind 2 phase program I’m about to show you, you’ll see exactly how to use weight training to improve your boxing specific power and conditioning, and you can finally put this long-standing myth out for the 8 count.

And you’ll leave those who refuse to get with the times and use weight training to their advantage standing with their hands by their sides as your arm is raised in victory.

Does this sound good to you?

Then let’s get started.

3 SCIENTIFIC S&C PRINCIPLES FOR BOXING

punching-anatomy

 

Boxing S&C Principle #1
Build an Aerobic Base

One of the big myths around boxing is that it relies mostly on the Lactic energy system.

This is completely wrong and if you train this way, you’re setting yourself up to gas out.

A 2001 study by Spenser and Gastin showed that in a 400m race, where athletes are running their balls off and that typically lasts 45 seconds or so at elite levels, 43% of the energy produced for this even is from the Aerobic system. That’s almost half.

In an 800m race, which takes around 1 minute and 45 seconds to complete, 66% of the energy used is produced Aerobically.

So it’s easy to see that in a 3 minute boxing match, at least 80% of the energy is produced by the Aerobic energy system, which is why you need to build your Aerobic engine if you want to fight hard for the full 3 minutes.

Later on I’m going to show you exactly how to do that through something I call “hybrid conditioning”.

And just imagine what happens if a fight goes 6, 10 or 12 rounds – lasting anywhere from 20-40 minutes – the Aerobic system is working OVERDRIVE.

Another big problem with focusing your training on the Lactic system is that the enzymes involved in Lactic metabolism will be increased, which will make your body want to use them sooner than if they’re not as developed.

This is a problem because if you go Lactic too early, your power output will be decreased both at a cellular level and at the nervous system level, which means you simply cannot punch with full power.

If you just want to give your opponent love taps, this is cool. But if you’re in it to win it, this is bad. Very bad.

 

Boxing S&C Principle #2
Take This 2-Pronged Approach to Power Development

There are 2 things you’ve got to do to build your explosive power:

knocked-out

If this is how you feel after every workout, you’re not building power.

#1) Perform your movements with full force under conditions of total recovery. If this is how you feel after every workout, you’re not building power.

The old-school idea of pushing yourself non-stop for longer and longer and thinking this will help develop power ignores the reality of the physiology of the body.

Maximum power comes from the Alactic energy system, which only has around 10-15 seconds of juice before it is empty and requires you to rest.

Proper power training involves performing the exercise as fast and explosive as possible and when you’re done, rest.

In fact, rest even a little more than you feel you need if you want to ensure you’re training your power – the exact opposite of what most trainers will tell you.

This way, you’re training both your muscles and nervous system to be lightning-FAST, not slow like molasses.

#2) Learn how to harness the “free” power given to you via the stretch-shortening cycle (SSC). 

The stretch-shortening cycle is a concept I’ve been teaching for years that many athletes have no idea about.

Once you discover how to harness this untapped resource, you’ll develop more power and you’ll do it without expending any extra energy.

Every muscle in your body is connected to a bone via a tendon.

The tendon is basically like a strong and thick rubber band and the SSC involves taking advantage of the elastic properties of tendons as well as neuromuscular reflexes that maximize your muscular contraction.

And I’ll show you exactly how to utilize the SSC through specific exercises that will directly enhance the power of your punches so you hit harder while using less energy.

Boxing S&C Principle #3
Train the Transverse Plane

transverse-plane

The rotational plane of motion is what you move through whenever you twist your body.

For example, turn your head around and look as far behind you as you can. This is movement in the transverse (rotational) plane of movement.

Most of the punches you throw get their power from movement in the transverse plane.

That’s why we need to incorporate these movements into your S&C program, otherwise, you’re not training the specific needs of boxing.

While traditional exercises like Deadlifts are great when trained in a very specific way and at a certain time in your schedule, they will not translate as well to boxing as an exercise that involves rotation.

Now this may all sound great to you, but you may be thinking, “So how do I put this all together?”

That’s the best part – I’ve done all the work for you, so you don’t have to figure this out all on your own.

Introducing, the Program 4 Pugilists (P4P)…

pugilists-cover-3d-web

Here’s what you’ll discover inside the P4P:

  • Unique exercises that will help you throw harder punches, slip faster, and be able to pounce on your opponent when the opening presents itself
  • Exactly how many reps, sets and how long to rest to give you heavy hands
  • The most effective hybrid conditioning plan to build your conditioning to the point where a fight will feel like a leisurely stroll on the beach – everything is outlined including interval, steady state and circuit training
  • How to perform every exercise properly through detailed video instruction – do them right otherwise, you might as well not do them at all

  • The exact blueprint to follow whether your fight is 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 weeks away to continually build your level of fitness (and what to do if you train and don’t fight at all)

  • Exercises to fix “fighter’s hunch” so you can avoid common shoulder injuries that can keep you on the couch (getting fat) for weeks or even months at a time

But perhaps the most powerful aspect of the P4P is the fact that it’s a 2-phase periodized program that you can use to get in top shape for a fight…

THE 2 PHASE PROGRAM FOR PUGILISTS

Each phase takes the 3 principles above and puts them into an easy, step-by-step format so you don’t have to have a science degree to understand or benefit from it – the science is built-in.

Because each phase is built to complement the other, you can continue to make gains by simply alternating each phase of training, taking your power and conditioning to new heights each and every phase you complete.

P4P Phase 1

In Phase I, you’ll be building your general strength with boxing specific exercises that train the rotational plane as well as the best general strength builders.

Your conditioning is focused on building your Aerobic base while introducing some explosive movements to train your Alactic energy system as well.

You’ll perform specific workouts and interval training protocols to maximize your gains while minimizing your soreness and fatigue.

Most programs just beat you into the ground and leave you tired and spent, unable to get the most out of your boxing training – this won’t happen to you on the Program for Pugilists as I understand that S&C is meant to complement your boxing training, not detract from it.

P4P Phase 2

Phase II is where you peak your power endurance through my specific NRG System Complexes, while maintaining the strength you’ve built so you don’t start from the bottom after your fight.

You’ll discover how to taper your training so that you’ve got loads of energy for the intense training and sparring that happens before a fight.

Speaking of which, it doesn’t matter if your fight is 4, 6, 8, or 12 weeks away – I’ll tell you exactly what exercises to do , how many reps, how much rest and guide you through everything as if you were training with me in the gym.

And if you don’t fight, all you’ve got to do is perform each of the 2 phases for 4 weeks each, taking a week off after Phase II and repeat the cycle to continue making gains.

No longer will you show up to the gym and wonder, “What should I do today?”

After grabbing the program, each and every time you step in the gym will have a specific intention and goal.

You’ll have the master plan in hand and you’ll be able to get right down to the business of unleashing your physical potential..
