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.


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.

At different times during my life, I did:

Tae Kwon Do
Some form of Krav Maga/militarized martial art

The MMA gym I went to knew their shit. The leader guy believed that a combination of boxing/wrestling style with muay thai/jujitsu backgroud (for the meta) would make a champions combination.

I lasted about a month of every day training before I opted out. I got 3 injuries training there, got hit in the face, slammed, choked, kicked (though not hard since I basically mastered spacing in tae kwon do), and had pretty much all my major joints twisted in some way or another including my spine. Still can't figure out how to do a spine twister like that.

Anyways, call me a puss, but I don't like getting the shit kicked out of me. I mean, I wasn't being a bitch about it, and I was dishing out as much as I was getting. Plus I was surprisingly awesome at jujitsu for someone with no ground game (strength training and a sharp mind gave me an edge). But to the point:

You will get injuries faster in a fighting sport than any other sport. It will wear your body down over time, and you will leave with permanent injuries.

So if you're cool with that, get at it. I loved training in MMA and was in fantastic shape afterwards. But I'm turning 30 soon and I can't afford hospital bills from training accidents.
