Greatest Ever Boxing Workouts - including Mike Tyson, Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather, Roberto Duran Reviews
...sollte sich dieses Buch holen. Habe lange im Internet nach Quellen gesucht, aus denen hervorgeht, wie und mit welchem Umfang die meisten Profiboxer trainieren. Dieses Buch ist eine tolle Fundgrube für Trainingspläne (naja sagen wir grob umrissene Trainingspläne). Eine große Auswahl an aktiven und ehemaligen Boxprofis wird kurz vorgestellt und interviewed bezpüglich ihrer Trainingsmethoden & Ernährung (wieviele Einheiten pro Woche, wieviel Runden Boxsack/Sparring/Schattenboxen/etc, wie oft Lauftraining/Athletik/Krafttraining).Auf Amazon gibt es eine Voransicht von dem Buch, die den Inhalt ziemlich gut wiedergibt.Aber: Hier werden Trainingsabläufe nur grob skizziert - dieses Buch ist keine Anleitung für ein Boxtraining !
Als Boxtrainer und Boxfreund finde ich das Buch super, die Workouts geben mal Tipss zu den Boxern und die Geschichte dazu ist spannend. Super schöens Buch für alle Boxfreunde
Buch ist wie beschreiben eine Zusammensetzung von verschiedenen Trainingstabellen der großen legendären BoxerJeder der Lust hat eines der Trainings zu kopieren, hat dadurch die Möglichkeit
Schlechter Druck,gepaart mit banalen Informationen und keine wirklich guten Infos.Nicht seriöse Informationen.Der Kauf ist daher nicht zu empfehlen.
I have been an enthusiastic fan (both as a spectator and an active participant) of numerous combat sports (Boxing, Kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts, and Wrestling) and martial arts (Judo, Jujitsu, Karate-Do, Kenjutsu, and Tanto-Jutsu) for more than 55 years. I am always interested in different fitness routines and I loved the first book (Workouts from Boxing’s greatest Champs by Gary Todd) and I am happy to see he also wrote this follow up (Greatest ever boxing workouts by Gary Todd) volume.This 184 page soft cover book follows the same format as the first volume. I have to admit that I was not familiar with many of the boxers because some of them fought mostly in other countries; nevertheless, I found this book interesting and informative. The book gives a short bio of the author which also includes the country he is from, date of birth, how many wins and losses and titles he won. It than has a short question and answer section along with the actual workout routine of the boxer. I found it interesting that many boxers had other hobbies they liked such as Golf and swimming etc.Some of the boxers in this volume includes: Anthony “The Man” Mundine, Antonio “Magic Man” Tarver, Danny “The Green Machine” Green, Curtis Cokes, “Gentleman” Jim Watt, “Irish” John Duddy, “Iron” Mike Tyson, Thomas “The Hitman” Hearns, “Irish” Micky Ward, Roberto “Hands of stone” Duran, Manny “The Pacman” Pacquiao, “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather, JNR and many other boxers.Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Tactical Principles of the most effective combative systems)
This will be a quick review as the book is simple and straightforward in its approach. The author interviewed 30+ boxers, and each chapter corresponds to a boxer. A few of these boxers are household names, e.g. Tyson, Duran, Pacquiao, and Mayweather, but others may or may not be known to those who aren’t fight fanatics.Each chapter consists of three sections. The first and longest of each is an overview of that boxer’s career, but it’s the other two sections that are most relevant to the book’s title and theme. One of these sections is an interview that asks a series of 14 questions about how the respective boxer organized his training day, and the other is a description of the boxer’s workouts (typically there was more than one workout—i.e. sparring v non-sparring days.)If you’re a big boxing fan, this book will be interesting to you particularly for some of the insights about the boxers. The author is clearly knowledgeable in that regard. If you are mostly interested in the book from a fitness perspective, and seek to learn about working out for combative sports, it’s of decidedly less value. It still has some fascinating information, but you’ll probably find it tedious and of limited usefulness. The question and answer section elicits answers from one word to a couple sentences and the workouts are a page each. What is fascinating is how similar the day in the life of a boxer is, and, specifically, how standardized workouts are. What I mostly found intriguing was when someone stuck out as having a different mode of operating. For example, most started their days very early (often going back to sleep after roadwork) but a few were clearly night owls. One can also see a little of how approaches have shifted between the earliest fighters and the ones active until recently.There are plenty of photographs in the book, but they are the only graphics. There isn’t much else by way of ancillary matter. (i.e. there is a section of pictures of the author with various boxers, but that—of course—is primarily of interest to the author.)In one sense the book is quite limited and tedious, but it’s also interesting to see how thirty different fighters answered the exact same pallet of questions. There is some insight into nutrition, sleep schedules, optimal time for workouts, etc. However, the book doesn’t drill deep.If you’re a fight fan, fascinated by boxers and their careers, I’d recommend this book. For those who are buying it thinking they’ll get some insight into how to prepare as a boxer, I’d say said insight will be extremely limited. That said, the book isn’t much of a time investment, and so if you can get it cheap you may find it of some benefit.
Not a bad book Fun to read, well researched. But, as I said when I reviewed the author's first book, all training routines are pretty much the same and it gets a bit repetitive. I wish he had detailed some strength training programs and exactly what, if any, supplements they took. Also, I know for a fact that many used wood chopping as a training method, yet, it is not mentioned here at all.
As a boxing fan, this is an interesting book. You get to learn about fighters and fights that you've never seen. You also get to reminisce about fighters and fights that you have seen. Seeing training rituals is a good addition.
Basically the book is mini biographies of boxers, some known in the States, and some not as well known, plus their workout routines. Good to look at to incorporate some of their techniques into individuals' boxing workouts.
