Boxing: Aerobic Capacity | Mike "Kujo" Kurzeja

Question: "As a boxer or fighter it’s essential to have good conditioning.  How to you keep your aerobic capacity on point?"

I keep my aerobic capacity on point by doing some form of cardio every day. Typically I run when I wake up every morning. I run between 3-6 miles each day. (I average a marathon per week). My run changes from steady longer runs, to shorter interval runs, to steady runs, with sprints at the end. The key is to mix it up, and mimic a fight, where your heart rate will go up and down. I monitor my heart rate and my runs through a Garmin heart rate monitor I wear on my wrist. I also mix up my cardio with a spin bike, and lap swimming in a pool. I don't miss workouts, and do at least this morning workout every day. I sometimes do a second workout later in the day at the boxing gym. Running is a staple in a boxers life and has many benefits besides cardio. Running also helps build and strengthen your legs, strengthens your core and builds muscular endurance in your legs.
