    Default RDJ's training log

    I decided to keep a training log here. We'll see if I keep it up

    Tue Aug 26

    Biked about 15 miles in the morning, moderate intensity.
    Gmaps Pedometer

    In the evening biked 5 miles to the boxing gym, moderate intensity. Got in the gym half an hour too early, so I skipped and shadowboxed for about half an hour. Short warming up, 15 minutes. I was already warm of course. Did defense drills for about an hour, then three rounds all out on the bag for conditioning. Biked about 6 miles back home at high intensity.

    No sparring today because I was very sore from work yesterday, I have a physically demanding job at times.

    Forgot to introduce myself.

    The name's Remco, from the Netherlands. I'm 32 years old, started boxing seriously about 3.5 years ago. Before that I had been in the gym for a few months but I wasn't planning on actually boxing. Because of my age I did not feel the urge to compete, but things went very well in the ring lately so I thought why not, let's give it a shot. Had one exhibition, which was a very good experience. Did not "win" but it got me used to the idea I think. My first fight will be somewhere in October by the looks of it. I'm 5'8" to 5'9" and I'll be fighting at light welter.

    The training section here is much better than on a "certain" other site btw, it looks like a bodybuilding site sometimes.

    Wannabe bodybuilders at best. This forum actually has boxers on it....what a novel concept.

    Indeed. A breath of fresh air.

    Wed Aug 27

    Again did a short bike ride in the morning, 12.9 miles to be exact.
    Gmaps Pedometer

    Biked 5 miles to the gym, moderate intensity. Did 15 minutes skipping and rotating limbs for warming up. After that did two rounds of shadowboxing. Next 12 rounds on the bag, working on various things. Cooling down consisting of rotating limbs and stretching muscles. Biked the same 5 miles home again, high intensity.

    Felt great but there was nobody to spar with except a heavyweight that is known for 2 things. 1) his insane power and 2) his inability to hold back. I declined his offer for a spar, I want to remain good looking. Better luck tomorrow.

    Thu Aug 28

    Biked 5 miles to the gym, moderate intensity. Warmed up for about half an hour, skipping, rotating, etc. Two rounds of shadowboxing. Two rounds on the bag. After that sparred about 8 two minute rounds against a southpaw, and 4 or 5 against an orthodox guy. Cooled down and biked 5 miles home after that.

    Felt quite good in sparring, a bit sluggish from the last few days but not too bad. Boxed very defensively, both of them have a very high tempo and like to pressure. At first I boxed in the open, keeping some distance but I got tired of it and decided to stand my ground. Went to the ropes a few times on purpose to get some rest despite everyone telling me not to, I wasn't being hit and I needed a breather. Overall things went okay.

    Welcome dude. I see you joined this forum long before a lot of us, but rediscovered it.

    Thanks. Most of the time I'm on another boxing site, but the training section here is much better.

    Fri Aug 29

    No boxing today, had to work. Spent 10 hours loading and unloading flight cases filled with light and audio equipment in and out of trailers. Paid workouts

    Another day of gruesome manual labor. Another paid workout. Which is good because I fucking hate lifting weights in the gym, this way I still get some strength workouts in. I'm a roadie so it's lots of lifting, climbing with heavy objects, etc.

    Biked 5 miles to the gym. 15 minutes warming up, 10 rounds on the bag, about 5 on mitts. Cooling down, 15 minutes. Again no sparring due to lack of people my weight. Biked 5 miles back.

    Do they only allow people within the same weight to spar at your gym? Or is that a personal preference?

    Personal preference. I don't mind sparring heavier people but if it's a heavyweight it won't do me much good. The guys I usually spar with are up to 10-15 pounds heavier perhaps.
