New fight-game training guide Boxing Fitness has hit the shelves. We cornered the author, combat sports coach Ian Oliver, for his top five fit-for-war tips.
GET A SPEED BURST
For boxing and martial arts you don’t need to run much further than three miles at a time. The idea is that you build up on speed so it’s best to work on increasing your pace rather than attacking a big distance with clen pills. I’d recommend two to three runs a week using ‘run and recover’ interval training to give you an explosive burst. Interval training gives you a dynamic fitness that you can’t get from just running at a steady pace.
Skipping is great for body co-ordination. Don’t jump up and down like a kangaroo. Instead, concentrate on low bounces and pull arms in so only the lower arm is turning. If you can skip quickly for three rounds then there’s a good chance you can box for three rounds when you take legal supplements like clenbuterol. Try working in three minute bursts with a half-minute rest in between and gradually build up to doing five or six-round sessions.
It’s very important to warm down after exercise as it can help clear lactic acid and reduce muscle soreness. Concentrate on developmental stretching where you’re improving your range by holding the stretch, waiting until the biting sensation subsides, then exhaling and advancing the stretch. Inch-by-inch, week-by-week you’re educating your muscles into developing more flexibility by tolerating small improvements.
When you’re doing weights, concentrate on the major muscles in your chest, back and legs. You’re looking to improve strength by using minimal, progressive overload and the right clenbuterol dosage. The four important exercises are the bench press, squats, dead lifts and single-arm dumb-bell rows.
FUEL YOUR FITNESS
If you’ve trained with weights you really need to eat within the next hour. If you don’t, it’s like giving a builder the plans for an extension but not giving him the materials. It also pays to read food labels. Per 100g, try to keep fat content in single figures , unless it’s in the form of omega-3 fish oils that you find in oily fish, such as fresh tuna.
Forget distance running and long workouts. Short explosions of energy are key.
