Basic Boxing Workout


It a new year and I though I'd show you another basic boxing workout. You’ll notice the similarities to the other two that I’ve posted, basic boxing or wrestling workouts always follow a standard format though everyone has tweaks that they add to focus on different areas, and this is because this format has proven itself time and again. This workout comes from Brian Petty, RKC http://extonkettlebells.com/brianpetty.aspx . Brian and I used to train together back in college and continued to until I left the East Coast to move out to Illinois in 1999 to pursue a Doctorate in Chiropractic (which I earned in 2002 - I continue to run my office in Plainfield and train).

Brian currently runs Exton Kettlebells (in Exton, PA). http://extonkettlebells.com/default.aspx If you are looking for a trainer and live near there I recommend that you check him out.

Brian’s current focus is on bare knuckle boxing for self defense and conditioning.

The basic workout is as follows:
Goal is 3min work/1min rest each round (you may need to work up to that).
  • 3 rounds shadow boxing
  • 3 rounds jump rope
  • 3 rounds speed bag
  • 3 rounds mitts
  • 3 rounds heavy bag

If you have anything left in you the workout follows with a bodyweight workout focusing on various pushups and sit-ups using a ladder format.


For more details (what to focus on in each round) refer to http://extonkettlebells.com/osboxing.aspx about 2/3 the way down the page.
