Great book for boxing basics and conditioning,
This review is from: Boxing Fitness: A Guide to Getting Fighting Fit (Fitness Series) (Paperback)
This is a great book, mostly for amateur boxers/beginners or anyone who wants to get 'boxing-fit'. This is what I like about the book:
- It's a very honest book. The authors explains everything from a very practical point of view.
- It covers topics like basic boxing skills, drills, weight training, cardio (running, jump rope etc), core strength, flexibility, nutrition and boxing equipments in reasonable detail.
- The authors pays attention to the detail. Small topics, like how to wrap your hands, aspects of using different kinds of boxing bags (including, price, installation etc), types of jump ropes, things to carry in your gym bag and the price aspects of it, outdoor running vs treadmills. It shows that the author was careful enough to consider issues encountered by people in real life while learning something new.
- The book has complete information for a boxing beginner (like me), whether you are training alone or with a partner.
