    Increasing Stamina

    I have been Training now for 2 years, december will mark the begining of my 3rd year of training. In that time I have lost weight, my belt has twice as many holes as it did when i started.

    I started boxing with my friends for something to do saturday night and i found out that my strenght doesnt last longer then 3 mintues. I never had the chance to spar in class for more then 2 minutes.

    My solution, for now, is Burpees and shadow boxing. both use all the muscles in my body and my lungs and so they have helped me.

    what helped you guys?

    It didn't sound like his problem was with cardio. He stated he needs muscle endurance. To that I would recommend longer shadow boxing and sparring matches. Check out trainforstrength.com for endurance workouts.

    Spar more often and longer.

    Timed rounds on the heavy bag.

    Timed rounds shadow boxing, consider hand weights.

    Run wind sprints.

    Swim (sprints if you can).

    8 counts, or similar calisthenics.

    Push ups.

    I actualy am trying to develop both

    Swiming would be fun, but the only pools where i can do so are at gyms, and darn it all, im broke..... as for the run thingy, well i am 330 pounds with (explitave deleted) up knees. walking would be ok, but i can walk for hours with out a good cardio.

    the burpees get my heart going after 20, the shadow boxing gets me ready in 3 mintues. but saddly, the shadow boxing becomes a mental endurance devleopment tool as well because it becomes boring.

    You've touched on something quite poignant. Something which, I would say, is the only redeeming quality of dissimilar "cardio" activities; for the purposes of increasing the relative ease of one given kind.

    My high school wrestling team had days in which they'd spend time swimming. Consquently, our wrestling team sucked balls. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that other teams didn't have fancy P.E. facilities and had to make due with plain old mats and bodies.

    I'm no expert, but I think wrestling itself involves only mats and bodies.

    We could be on to something here.

    Damn you Lawdog!

    I was too slow. :argue:
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    I would have to say hill sprints. Hill sprints and striking the heavy bag.

    I've added hill sprints into my weekly training over the last month and my fitness has imrpoved out of sight. Give yourself extra recovery time if you need it.

    Ok, this may be stupid to ask, but when you train do you train with your mouth piece on?

    The transition from breathing unobstructed to breathing with something somewhat large in your mouth can definately **** with your breathing patterns and ultimately drain your stamina.

    If not, then you should start training with it. This isn't really an exercise to help stamina, it's just a small detail that may help you a bit.

    Can you read?
    He says he's 330 pounds and can't jog because of his knees.

    Stone, I'm going to be a complete bastard here and sugest a diet. Most people who are 330 pounds are fat and without lugging that extra weight everywhere you'll find that you can keep going for much longer.
