Is boxing really a good source of cardio?

Or is that just a /fit meme?

    it's the best. Did a boxing class for 3 months and did a 5 round spar after about 2.5 months. Punched out in 2 rounds. The amount of cardio that goes into boxing is insane

    Do the following for a full minute and let me know how tired you are
    Jab
    Jab jab
    Jab jab cross
    Jab hook
    Jab body cross
    Jab cross hook cross
    Upper cross hook
    Repeat

      That’s literally not a challenge. I can easily do that for 10 minutes straight without a water break

          I bet you wouldn't even make it to the third minute

          Why is it unimaginable?

          At my gym we will do 2 minutes of alternating between jab and cross, take a 30 second break, and then do 2 minutes of upper cuts. And we go for like 6 rounds.

          When I train on the bag at home, I'll do 3 5 minute rounds of non-stop striking. Or I will do 10 1 minutes where I just do one kind of strike repeatedly.

          I don't know if I could go 10 minutes of non stop combos, but, I can do comparable things. So it seems pretty achievable.

        I can do that for 10 mins on a heavy bag without a rest or water break but I have been a thaiboxer for many many years.
        I doubt you could even do that in shadowbowing, let alone real bag work or mit work.

    It is some of the best, but swinging at a punching bag for a few minutes doesn’t count, find a boxing gym and train it’s fun as fuck

    im sure you could probably google about how various boxers, esepcially pros, probably have a mental vo2 max.

    even like amatuer boxers, 3x2/3min rounds, are fit as fuck. its fuckinh exhausting.

    its also fun. i box and then lift after/days off

      About to be my fourth month boxing and before that I've been lifting for 4 years(I'm 18) and I box 4 times a week, how do you even still lift weights I do weighted calisthenics and a few curls and OHP here and there. I'm asking cause everytime I've tried to train strength over the weekend my performance suffers when I have to box Monday and I basically take the entire week to heal up or at least Monday through Thursday I'm not at 100%. So how light do you go lifting wise???

        Have you tried doing two a days? I lift a few hours before every training session, and I never feel like it's impacted me significantly on the mat.

        Fuck I meant to reply to this one

        ive had a few fights and actually boxed for like 6 years or so before wanting to lift.
        so i train boxing like 4x a week and it's like, pretty standard with 1/2 days sparring thrown in.

        as for lifting it's pretty straightforward. after i'd do like, 3x8-10 squat s/s db OHP, some band curls and like physio stuff after. NOTHING major but enough to keep me going. on the off days id short compound workout movements for weights. just eat and sleep a lot and recover as much as you can. dont oer do it. maybe try a calisthenics program or something less taxing on the body? idk

          Ye I'm thinking of going lighter and not doing weighted calisthenics and focusing more on muscle endurance and cardio when Campus closes and I'm back home

            if you wanted to just work out for boxing sake you could probs do some simple higher rep compound lift stuff? you could probs sneak in calisthenics and like curls and shit in without much disadvantage to you lol

        Lifting is a meme like crossfit. Calisthenics, exercises, and weight programs shouldn't tax your cns.
        If you do bodybuilding the best you can hope for is to be a shit to mediocre fighter after years(unless you ride and even then you won't bodybuild as much as natty liftfags)

        It’s tough. What works for me is setting a timer on my phone for 20 minutes and never lifting longer than that. I do like 2 things per workout 1 main lift 1 accessory.

    Really good cardio when you're doing work on the heavy bag or mitts but in sparring it depends on how YOU box cause there are different styles and a lot of the time It's gonna pace > Stamina in the ring or while sparring

        A lot of the time I'm either doing high rep dips(at 83kg) or doing weighted pull ups, I actually only have one weekend to lift each month as all my equipment is back home and at campus I don't have the time plus they don't have a dip station. I've been thinking that maybe I'm trying too hard to be as strong as I use to be last year(I was basically at my then peak and started to break through my limits in weighted dips and weighted pull ups) but ever since starting boxing my lifts went down and I lost a bit of weight(bit of water and fat). So maybe it's been a bit hard to accept that I won't be AS strong as I was if I'm gonna be a combat sport athlete

          yeah man like while you can work them in above, really they're gonna be to an extent at the detriment of eachother lol. i mean you've only got so much time in the day to train and a whole lot of other shit outside of the gym to do in your life so yeah it is what it is. just gotta hit a happy medium i guess.

          Ask your coach what lifts you should be doing. I know i was told for muay thai to do more pull that pushing to offset the common imbalance that occurs due to the focus on pushing in the sport and do loads of shoulder pre-hab

            i think it's changing now but historically a lot of boxing coaches basically disavowed most weightlifting rly

    Funny to see this thread because the last time I came here (maybe one year ago) I created a thread about boxing because I wanted to start it, but no one cared.
    Go for it because it's amazing, OP. The variety of exercises and training in boxing will keep you entertained while the preparation for your first fight will keep you focused. Make sure to join a good boxing academy and you won't regret it.

      Not OP but very much agreed, I'm going to my fourth month and honestly I enjoy it more than lifting but that doesn't mean I'll stop directly training my strength and muscles as I'm interested in being a high level amateur and then turning professional if I'm good enough. I still need to cut down to like 76kg tho as I'm interested in being in the super middle weight(Currently around 82kg)
