If boxing is your thing, spend most of your training time developing technique and sport specific fitness. “Fighters fight.” – As Rocky Balboa once said. This pick and mix GPP program, designed for amateurs and enthusiasts, performed once or twice a week should take care of your strength and conditioning needs.

Choose one exercise from each box. Complete the set number of reps on the left hand side with minimal rest.
