FIGHTING FIT

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.

FEEL ROPEY

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.

FLEXIBLE FRIEND

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.

WEIGHTY ISSUES

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.

Break Down the Fitness Barriers

When you think of cardiovascular exercise, you probably think of aerobic activities such as jogging and cycling, designed to help you improve your oxygen intake. But this month we are going totally anaerobic, with the aim of teaching your body to better expel the stuff you don’t want, namely lactic acid and carbon dioxide.

anaerobic exercise

When you exercise gently, your body utilises oxygen to burn energy. As you increase the intensity of your exercise — such as sprinting, rather than jogging — you stop working aerobically and start working anaerobically, where your body can’t take in enough oxygen to fuel your exertions and you burn out very quickly. Lactic acid builds up in your muscles, making them hurt, and your lungs start to blow off’ large amounts of carbon dioxide from your body, making your cardiovascular system work at its limit.

By training anaerobically you push your heart, lungs and vascular system as hard as they can work, and you can teach your body to ‘buffer’ the effects of the lactic acid that is produced as a result. This means that, over time, you will be able to push your body harder for longer. However, anaerobic training is no walk in the park — it’s a series of short, very intense sprints. Try the following training sessions, and be prepared for a bit of pain if you want to see results.
