ULTRA WHITE COLLAR BOXING’S ORIGINAL TRAINER CLIFTON MITCHELL’S FITNESS TIPS
- I challenge you to do the one-mile challenge: warm yourself up, run one mile (1.6km) and time yourself. Do this every week and see your time improving.
- Shadow boxing is an ideal warm up as it helps to make you feel more comfortable in your movement. It also helps train your shoulders, back and core so you can train longer before your arms get tired. You can do a higher number of reps without the bag slowing your punches.
- Skipping helps to burn calories and increase your fitness. It strengthens your calf muscles and will help improve your balance and coordination.
- Boxing Stance: it’s so important to make sure your boxing stance is correct; everything in boxing requires movement in your feet, so you need to make sure that you have great balance and your feet are in the correct position to generate power.
- Recovery Sessions: when you are aching from yesterday’s training sessions, this is because waste products in your tissue from energy production have built up. If you go for some gentle exercise then your body will be able to flush away this waste and send nutrients around your body, helping you to recover quickly.
- Interval training is great for boxing as short burst of exercise will help you get prepared for your 2 minute rounds in the ring. This can include a variety of exercises including, sit ups, press ups, squats, shadowboxing or anything incorporating a punch bag.
