Boxing Training

Boxing Training…Tried and Tested!

Boxing training transforms the body into lean machine designed to provide a massive power-to-weight ratio. The methods applied are designed to enable the boxer to fight hard for as long as it takes, outperforming the opponent in the application of skill, strength, speed and stamina.
I have made it easy for you to access the key elements of boxing training on this site. To enable you to gain progress and understanding really quickly, I have organised the relevant articles into 2 main categories:

Boxing Training Routines


The first category contains boxing training videos and articles that enable you understand the kind of activities that a boxer undertakes in their training. These activities mesh together to build superior fight fitness. Go to the boxing training routines page to find what you need, from skills development videos to boxing psychology and from knowing the secrets of killer hand speed to bone crunching power, it’s all here.


Boxing Training Equipment


The second category will help you to understand the equipment that is used in boxing and vitally how that equipment is used. If you believe that using a heavy punch bag was just about thrashing the bag, then think again. What is the difference between the gloves used in in a contest from those used in sparring? What should you look for when buying a heavy bag? How do you actually use focus mitts? You’ll find the answers to all of this and more via the boxing training equipment page.

If you have any questions or would like some advice, then leave a comment below or alternatively email me at

Fran January 9, 2016 at 3:21 pm

Hi there

Don’t worry about losing weight, you’ll be fine. You need to look at your diet (incorporate more protein etc.) and work weights to build a little muscle. Difficult question to answer as in boxing we aim to box at a weight that is as light as possible – we worry about controlling weight rather than increasing it!


tanujsharma January 3, 2016 at 5:13 am

My age is 17 and i learn a boxing about 1 month ago i want to know am i become a good boxer on this age


Shannon October 26, 2014 at 3:38 am

Hi Fran,
I’m 19 and have been boxing in our local gym for about 3 years now, and since getting into uni I have been doing it when I can at home, as there is no local boxing club where I am centred at uni (although your videos have helped greatly for tips and such for when I have been away from the sport so thank you so much!). I have been nominated by the gym to supposedly be going on the assistant coach course in Sept this year. However, not much detail has been given to me and I was wondering if you could give me some advice as to what the course for an assistant coach would be like, what would I have to do there and mainly what can I do to help me pass I am aware it is based on my ability but I would like to go in as prepared as possible to help with passing the course? What I could do in the mean time to get fitter for it such as diet and exercise? I don’t know if it makes a difference but I am a size 14 and struggle with what to eat for nutrition and dieting. Lastly could you give me any advice for what to do when I am back uni to keep up my stamina and maintain the fitness I have achieved such as exercises I could easily do in my room for example?

A HUGE thank you for any advice you can provide, I am very grateful for the videos too!



Fran November 2, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Hi Shannon

I’m very sorry for the delay, I’ve been mad busy.

Firstly, you are not going to need to be super fit to complete a coaching course. The course will take place over 2 full weekends (4 days in total). If you have been watching the videos on the site then you’ll be fine – it’s really about learning how to explain the skills to people rather than do then yourself as such. The way I present the videos is pretty much what you will be doing. It’s basic stuff.

Don’t be worrying – you will be fine and I’m sure that you will pass with flying colours.

When back at Uni, do some running around campus. 3 milers maybe, with some sprint work. Do some circuits too in the gym (unless they have a punch bag in which case beat up on that).

Best of luck Shannon. Let me know how your course goes.
