    Default A few intersesting ideas

    Hello friends, i'm new to this board and so i got some ideas that i would appreciate feed back on....

    1) What are the plus's and minus's of instead of doing a simple 30-45min roadwork section 3-7 times a week. why not have a long 3 hour section once or twice a week. good idea or bad?

    2) Ssomeone told me that shadowboxing while standing on a skate board will greatly increase stability and balcance...what are all your thoughts on these 2 ideas?

    2. I have a wobble board and often lift light weights while standing on it. It does engage more muscle. Not sure how you'd shadowbox on a skateboard, you'd have to stand square on. My advice would be to borrow one. If it feels right then do it.

    1. why not do both? run short most days and run long one day

    Running 30-60 minutes is a good way to build up endurance. Make sure your body is ready for it. I like running 45+Â* minutes around hilly land, it gives you extra time to reflect, and focus, while demanding more elbow grease out of the run. If you are a boxer, 3 hour running sessions is not gonna amend your endurance for boxing's pace. In our body, muscles for long-endurance, are comprised of slow-twitch muscle fiber; muscles for short intense exertions consist mostly of fast-twitch muscle fibers. In boxing a mixture of fast/slow-twitch muscle fibers are essential, in order to have a mix of this variety in intensity and duration is what ya gotta do. I recommend in conjunction of running 30-60 mins, with short distance intervals, this runs hand-in-hand with the exertion needed in boxing. Work out the distance, strive for progress through intensity (Hillsprints, weighted runs, competition), and travail.

    As for increasing stability, and in contrast to other more bang-for-your-buck exercises, wobble-boards, thigh-trainers, skateboard-balance training are second-rate, if you want stability and balance, you should try agility training (Agility Boxing, USA-football, Soccer/Rugby are greatly beneficial) Eastern-Martial Art's training are also beneficial, stepping from post to post is a useful bit of training that many martial artists have exploited to their advantage.

    Variety is excellent, but concerning memory-muscle (I'll explain in the future) your big breadwinner should be the most sport's specific, if it is boxing, nothing can replace fighting, the motions are all programed into our neuromuscular memory,Â* through repetition. Running, swimming, weight-training etc are supplementary but not substantial as to substitute for the real grind that boxing will put you through. If you want to progress, you should also keep a worklog and record all your exercises, the distance, timings, repetitions and sets, everything should be accounted for, keep your goals in mind, and strive with all your heart, to reach what is out of reach.

    yes but who is going to chop up telegraph poles at different lengths, dig holes and plant them when they can buy a wobble board for under a tenner :

    1. It will be aerobic and you will need plenty of rest, which when you are young is rare, you could overtrain and give yourself an injury. Opportunity time do you want to use 6 hours a week on a exercise what will not give you a much benefit in boxing, that 6 hours could be better spend training or socialising.

    2. No, and would ruin your stance, to improve balance practice moving forward, backwards, left, right in your boxing stance Andre has a good section on this it will be in learning/footwork

    Alot of people are on their toes and afraid of overtraining, don't push themselves enough. There's nothing wrong with giving 100% in everything you do, make sure that you are ready for the task ahead, and as the Greeks put it "Know Thyself" Know your limitations, but know you can overcome your limitations by training smart. To get the body conditoned for strenuous activity isn't something that takes place overnight, it takes time, and preparations are crucial to prevent injuries.

    As for balance, I agree with boyla, boxing requires balance in motion. Andre had a good portion on it as relating to footwork, and there's plenty more to consider in regards to agility. Agility won't comprimize stance, it can condition the body's equilibrium, and proprioceptors (The body's know-where-everything-is sensors) which will benifet our balance and coordination.

    In my discernment, I decided to give wobble-boards more thought... They also condition the body's proprioceptors and equilibrium, which wouldn't comprimize the stance in boxing, as long as stance and footwork are not neglected, As missy has said it's also a cheap solution, and a good supplement to any balance conditioning.

    Jumping from pint-sized phone-pole to pole isn't a bad idea if you know any Gung fu practictioners with a set stumped in their backyards.
