join a gym if you can. I just did and they started me with 5 min stretching, 10 min of jumprope, 4 (3 min each) rounds of shadow boxing, followed by 4-8 rounds of punching sandbags, 1 round of punching mitts, ab work, pushups, back extensions, curls and 5 min stretching for cooldown. No idea how this compares with a beginner routine in the States since I live in Japan. But its a decent start. GL

You need to focus on cardio, go out jogging for 1 1/2 hours 3 days per week. Also go hill sprinting for the other two, sprint up a hill at 80% of your max for 30 secs. Then each time you sprint up go 100%, repeat this 3-4 times. You can increase any of these factors to make it harder. One final progression you could do is if you take a friend with you, you could take some pads n gloves. Once you have finished the sprint and jogged back down, you could do 2 min’s of pad work. And keep changing over until you are both knackered.

Hope this helps mate 🙂

I’ve got a lot of good information here and I can answer your personal questions if you’ve got any.

Some basic tips are to train for endurance, power, speed, and reaction time. When sparring, STAY CALM!

There are lots of exercises you should do to train for boxing…. running, swimming if you have access to pool or lake, jump rope, push-ups, sit-ups, squat thrusts, kettle bell swings, weightless squats, bench press. Go to crossfit dot com for more ideas.

Use gloves. Do each of these for 1 min then rest for a min. work your way up to doing 3 min then rest for a min. It’s good to practice in rounds just like how you would fight. This here is a great order…
1. left jab
2.right jab
3.left cross
4.right cross
5.left jab right cross
6.right jab left cross
7.left jab. right cross, left jab
8.right jab, left cross, right jab
9. left hook
10.right hook
11.left jab, left hook
10.right jab, right hook
11.left, jab, right cross, left jab, right hook
12. right jab, left cross, right jab, left hook

go to boxinghelp dot com to look for a boxing gym in your area
and there are countless more combinations as large as the imagination is that you can practice.

As for diet… eat healthy… lots of vegitables and lean meat or fish. The best meat is organic free range beef and chicken. don’t drink alcohol or smoke and try to avoid junk food as much as you can.
