I like to train. It's been in my blood since I was a kid playing pop warner football (American) and I been at it ever since. I wake up everyday wanting to get the best out of myself Physically, Mentally and even Spiritually. Staying on the Physcial note though, I find the toughest routine to get up for when I hit the gym is core exercises. The shit kills me man, everytime! They have this new workout at this gym I go to, where u set your feet up to the point where you're dangling upside down and u have to pull yourself up. I figured new routine, I'll try it, why not. Did as many as I could until I burnt out... Bad idea! On my last count I couldn't lift back up and was left swaying back and forward like a fucking punching bag (Imagine that) until i could garner enough strength to pull up lol.

That experience led to the idea to ask people here who workout (or not), share what the toughest routine you've done or herd of doing while training?

if we're talking boxing routines for conditioning....there are plenty.

plyometric routines are great for explosiveness and speed.

my best advice to any of u looking to improve for boxing.... train how u fight. u will never be pushing or pulling heavy weight in a ring so there's no need for that outside the ring. make your work outs mirror your movements in the ring. for core work, stick to trunk rotations, crunches, leg lifts, jack knives..etc..etc... and maybe some medicine ball work. there's no need to build up the muscle of your abdomen wall...it will never be strong enough to take shots so avoid heavy weight there. instead, focus on your defense. your arms and elbows will take those shots a lot better than ur ribs or abdomen.

overall...keep your workouts intense. in a fight...u will need to be totally relaxed until it's time to attack...at that moment u want to be explosive and then bring your heart rate back down to a resting rate. this will happen several times during a round and several times during a fight. no one can go all out for 3 minutes straight for every single round so u need to learn to work within your envelope. this is why i believe in interval training.

depending on what it is you want to improve...the workouts will vary.
