I been considering taking fighting to the next level by joining a boxing gym then later wanting to chase MMA

What are some insightful advice do you fellow fighters have to offer like on diet, work outs, drills, cardio, scheduling, mentality, discipline.

I have experience on fighting but the main things I struggle on is self discipline, diet and I'm concerned about scheduling also due to having a job. What are good ways to combat lack of self discipline and unorganized diet.

What role does weight lifting play also and what kind of weight lifting should I be doing. I have so many questions so please just lay down any advice thanks

>Basic beginner boxing:

Focus on actual training over everything else. If you take it up try to get in 3 sessions per week. Boxing is as much skill as playing pool. Everything else for a beginner is the finishing touch. You're sessions will likely involve a calisthenics/cardio warm up, so 3xweek in the boxing gym for 1-2 hours is all you need early on.

>diet

Don't be fat or 'overfat' (i.e. keep your waist under 36 inches).

>work outs

Focus on your three sessions per week and then add these (to be a better boxer) in order: 1) shadow boxing, 3x2min, throughout the week. 2) Footwork skills. 3) Roadwork, 20min jogs or 1 mile times runs would be very good for a beginner.

>What role does weight lifting play

Little, unlike MMA. Boxing coaches take a more longterm view compared to the "FUCK 'EM TILL THEY BLOW!" attitude I have seen in MMA coaches. This means WL is used offseason and secondarily as pure accessories. A common approach for a boxer would be two sessions a week, 1=3-4x5-8 across a few compounds (power clean, overhead press, squat) 2= a quick lift session (varies a great deal.) WL will be ceased weeks before a fight.

So, I would recommend:

>3xsessions at a boxing gym per week
>Getting them in?
>Add shadow boxing
>Then footwork drills
>Then 20min cadio 1x week
>Then 1 mile run 1xweek
>Then more training at the gym, and only when you've done all of this add WLing

I would recommend you head over to Ross Enamait's site. You'll get much better answers there.
