From 20 World Class Boxers
Advanced strength training program designed to maximize strength, lose fat and build muscle.
Boxing is one of the toughest sports in the world, if not the toughest. Therefore, all world class fighters must train very hard. No matter how skilled and talented you are, there’s no substitute for hard work and dedication.
That’s what separates the good from the great. It’s the difference between winning and losing. There’s been so many cases where huge underdogs has won fights based on their excellent conditioning. They manage to out-work their opponent to victory.
This usually means that they put in more effort outside the ring. Perhaps they ran an extra mile, sparred an extra round or studied their opponent more. Whatever it may be, it comes as no surprise as many fighters and trainers will tell you that the fight is won in the gym. One of the greatest boxers of all time sums it up pretty well.
fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.
The physical side of boxing only plays a small part in winning a fight. The body is merely just a tool used to inflict damage on the opponent. The mental aspect of a
fighter is more important than anything else. It’s vital that the mind must be trained just as much, if not even more than the body.
Many may argue that a fighter either has a strong heart and mind or they don’t. It’s in their personality and character, which is not something that can be taught. One thing is for certain though -Hard training and mental preparation can do nothing but help your body and mind.
To prepare for an upcoming fight, world class boxers will do their usual training routine for around 8 hours a day, 6 days a week for 12 weeks. This usually consists of daily running for 6-8 miles, rope skipping, hundreds of rounds of sparring, pad work and extensive bag work. All of this work will be under the guidance of the fighter’s trainer and strength & conditioning coach.
The S&C coach will implement their own training methods from weight training, plyometrics (exercises designed to produce fast and powerful movements) through to diet. Therefore, it’s absolutely essential that the fighter bonds well with their trainer and S&C coach to ensure success.
Many fighters have their own specific ways of training and like to work on certain things to perfect their skills. It’s always a good idea to constantly experiment with new techniques for improvement.

Aside from his height and reach advantage over the majority of his opponents, Wladimir Klitschko has one of the best jabs in boxing. It’s powerful, quick and accurate which often stuns his opponents and keeps them at a safe distance.
Wladimir also utilizes his height advantage very well by leaning back when punches are coming towards him. His defensive mindset befuddles and frustrates his opponents, and it’s led him to so many dominant victories.
Wladimir Klitschko had a decorated amateur career. He has 134 fights and only 6 losses. This experience gave him much practice in sharpening his tools of the trade. However, the amateur scene is drastically different to the professional game.
Wladimir suffered losses in the professional ranks all by stoppage and by huge underdogs. These losses made him realise that he needed to improve on his defense and through legendary trainer Emmanuel Steward, he has become a better fighter.
• Shadowboxing In Swimming Pool
- Water provides resistance and Wladimir utilizes this method for his quick and powerful punches. This is a contrast from his amateur days when he never use to swim.
• Punching Tree Leafs
– It may sound unusual, but it’s an effective method that has proven to be successful. Tree leafs provide numerous targets at various angles, which is why Wladimir rarely wastes his punches due to his accuracy.
Because of his accuracy and power behind his shots, Wladimir’s opponents are usually very weary of getting within range. He has a very powerful straight right hand which is set up by his stiff jabs. It’s the classic one-two combination in boxing and Wladimir perfects it. This has enabled him to have long winning streaks and continuous reign at the top of the heavyweight division.
