How To Keep Your Gas In A Boxing Match



You often see this: a boxer who are overly aggressive in the first few rounds and then stalls at later rounds because he doesn't have any gas left in his tank. Professional or not, a boxer who loses his energy rapidly that he cannot go any longer and eventually lose the fight. No matter how hard a boxer punches or how strong his chin is, if he has no gas in his tank will likely not win.

That said, it is vital for a boxer to conserve as much energy as he can and use it at the right times. Accept it, your energy is limited, and when you are out of gas, you are out of gas. There should be no argument about that.

So how can you conserve the limited energy you have? Let us take a look at these tips:

Do not do any meaningless movement Keep your balance but not welcoming punches as a static target. You always want your movement to be unpredictable but that doesn't include jumping around the ring like the jack who just got out from the box. Do not waste your energy on some showboating or impressing the crowd with your new dance moves. Use your energy wisely. Engage when you he is in your striking distance.

Lean on a clinch Excessive clinching may cost you an important point but if you are engaged in one, lean and press your weight against your opponent. Leaning during a clinch has two purposes: it allows you to rest even for a second and it saps the energy of your opponent. Alternately, do not wrestle or fight if you are on a clinch. Let your opponent push you if he wants to (except into a corner).

Sit down You have 3 minutes to face your opponent standing up so when the bell rings for the break, sit down. Unless you are playing mind games against your opponent, trying to show that you are not tired, rest your cheeks on the stool, remove your mouthpiece and breathe properly. This is not the time to waste your energy swashbuckling at your corner. This is the time to listen, take a break from the previous round, listen to your trainer, incorporate some changes to your game plan, rest, and prepare for the next round.

Relax This is one of the most overlooked but a basic requirement once a boxer steps into the ring. Tensed muscles burn a lot of energy. While it takes some practice and a lot of sparring sessions to remain relaxed during the actual fight, remember that you are the only person who can decide whether you remain tensed or loose while facing up to your opponent. Also, clenching your fists continuously during the fight requires your muscle to work, which wastes energy. Keep your hands loose until the last moment before impact.

Breathe properly This requires you to be well conditioned. Respiration process burns fuel so the more you suck air into your lungs, the more energy it requires you to release it.

Never eat right before the fight Digestion burns a lot of energy so unless you are planning to lose, eat long enough before you step into the ring so that the digestion process is done and your energy is used for the fight.
