You can’t beat Mother Nature when it comes to building natural strength. The best exercises a fighter can do only require body weight and determination. Sit-ups, push-ups, pull-ups, dips and variations on each movement can give a fighter all the raw power he needs to gain the physical edge.
Core training has become a popular buzz word in the fitness industry over the past decade, on television and in exercise circles. It set off a rash of new fitness products ranging from balance balls to the latest and great “ab cruncher” machine that strengthens and tones your abs and core in less than ten minutes a day. Not likely, but core training is actually rooted in some basic principles of good fitness and has some real applications to boxers in particular, especially if you want to increase your punching power and overall coordination.
