Workouts from Boxing's Greatest Champs: Get in Shape with Muhammad Ali, Fernando Vargas, Roy Jones Jr., and Other Legends Reviews
I've always been curious and fascinated about how different boxers train. It's amazing that fighters toil, sacrifice and train for months for a few minutes of action.
The title of the books said it all, Gary Todd starts out telling his story on how he got into boxing & went around & interviewed boxers from all over the world on how they train, eat, what they do everyday/week, an interesting read.
Bought this for my husband for Valentine's Day. Arrived in time too! He was like Thanks, until I said did you look at it? He thought it was a book about boxing matches Mr. Ali had. He read the title again and was like "whoa, I didn't realize what this was about". He will adapt some of the fitness routines to his workout at the gym.
As a boxing fan, I wanted to check this book out to see the workout ideas of the great boxers. To be honest, the glimpses into their training regimes are fairly short and repetitive. I would have liked a bit more on even just one boxer but the author did give his own training routine and some good tips.
This is not a bad book. The problem is that every champ's training routine is pretty much the same. One of the major flaws is that it does not detail any type of strength training routine. Any decent book on boxing training will pretty much tell you what is here. It's all pretty much the same: roadwork, hitting the bag, sparring, etc. No champion level secrets are revealed whatsover.
Great book for boxing fans! It's nice to take a look at the workouts of great boxers from the past. It's cool to see what "primitive" workouts these guys did back in the day.
This book goes over the training regimens of many professional boxers. Not surprisingly, they all do the same basic thing. heavy bag, shadow boxing and sparring. It also details how to do each of this which if your a beginner, can be vary valuable. Otherwise, just train in the basic ways as described above for multiple rounds.
