Eating healthy is the most important thing, because your body needs fuel to make it through the rigorus trainning boxer go through, always make sure you’re drinking enough water, stay away from soda, etc. and you definitely want to build up your cardio, like running, jump rope. Boxing requires a lot of stamina and if you get winded easily, you’re in trouble. I’ve been a Muay Thai Kickboxer for about 7 years, it’s a lot of work, but it’s my passion, I love it!! Good luck.

Carbohydrates are the optimal source of energy for anaerobic events such as boxing. Protein is another important nutrient. Good sources of protein include tuna, chicken, lean beef, and eggs. Another convenient way to meet your protein requirements is through protein shake supplementation. Protein shakes provide a quick, convenient way to restore the body with 20 to 30 grams of protein.

Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water per day. Add lemon or lime for flavor.

Avoid high sugar juices and soda.

Avoid fried foods and saturated fats, instead opting for baked or broiled items.

Consume essential fatty acids, or supplement with flaxseed oil or cod liver oil.

Consume complex carbohydrates from natural food sources such as yams, oatmeal, fruit, and whole-wheat grain.

Consume rich sources of protein, such as chicken, beef, and eggs.

Avoid processed foods such as white flour. Natural items are always superior.

Eat 5 to 6 moderately sized meals spaced throughout the day (ex. every 3 hours).


dont forget cardio…it’ll help you out alot!

There are many good books out there on training for boxing. It’s important you regiment is boxing specific. Lifting weights and modern training techniques only get you so far. And while if you use modern techniques, you’ll win a few point matches, you’ll never develop the heavyweight punch of the greatest heavyweights ever… Floorwork, Roadwork, etc…
