Boxing Blog #1

Well, here's where I actually put my goals and schedule down on paper.  I guess I should put down my vital stats first: 
 
Age: 29 
Height: 5'7" 
Weight: 240lbs. 
 
My workout schedule for the week, starting next monday:  
 
Mon: Short night Jog,  Bicycle crunch, Vertical leg crunch,  
 
Wed: Jump rope, Side obliques 
 
Fri: Afternoon Jog, Bicycle crunchVertical leg crunch,   
 
Sat: Jump rope, Side obliques  
 
On top of these, there will be either one or two days spent at the gym training with my coach. I will fill those in as it goes. 
 
This is a very easy, beginners style exercise calender.  within two weeks I want to increase my days jogging to three and ad more ab exercises. 
 
I will be cutting out soda and simply drink water.

Wait,wait, what?  Are you a boxer?
Posted by Sanryd

Don't take this the wrong way, but you don't have to attach blog posts to the forums FYI. However, if you intended to, then carry on. Oh, and, nice blog.

Good luck keeping the exercise regime up, god knows im too lazy to keep doing it.
Also random question, whats your stance on MMA? I personally love it and (not to start shit) prefer it much more than boxing. I respect boxing but i just love the idea of the fighter having to be so much more well rounded and having to work on striking as well as a ground game both defensibly and offensively. Bull charging in and just throwing bombs is just gonna lead to you getting taken down in seconds and submitted.

To answer some Q's: starting up again. My eventual goal is to have at least one fight in the NY golden gloves. 
 
I grew up on boxing, but I also love MMA. I did quite a few stories and interviews about seven years ago while writing for my college newspaper. I see them as two very different sports, though I think boxing has a lot of work to do in order to get themselves back in the spolight. That's another blog post altogether though. 
 
And yes, my intention was to attach it to the forums so that I can have maximum exposure. 
 
Keep your eyes peeled here, I promise future blogs will be a bit more informative and have more pictures (some of me to help track my weight loss. I'm just lazy this week and my son has a cold.

Frotch or Kessler, this saturday?

Posted by JJWeatherman

Well this is random. Kinda interesting though.

@diz: Froch, just look at his opponents as opposed to Kessler's. I think Kessler's in over his head a bit.
