best weights section in a "how to book….for boxing"

 on 29 July 2009
By SK
I have been working out in various martial arts for 20+ years and have lots of “how to books” this is by far the best martial arts/boxing book I have read in terms of a realistic weights, plyometrics and ton-up’s routine/suggestions…..anyone looking to take up boxing should buy this as it covers most aspects that can be taught without a coach and apart from a small section in Joe Frasiers book (which is only a small bodyweight workout) is the only book I have read dedicated to boxing that has a good weights section, also, covers running, sprints, diet, technique etc and Gary Blower is an ABA coach – so you know his information is up-to-date and being taught to good boxers and is proven.

Good for getting drills from

By Grabthar's hammer
Does what it says on the tin! Good for getting drills from. Obviously you can’t just imitate the pictures to learn, you’ll have to go down an actual boxing club, but it’s a very helpful extra.

Decent book for beginners

By Nick
I thought that this was a worthwhile purchase, as along with popping to my local Boxing Club, I also train in my garage on the slam man / punch bag. This book gave me various skills to practise and some good workouts too.

Loved it. I found it useful, well written and complete. It was good for me as a beginner.

Great reference!

By BigLad78
I own this book and am impressed with the detail and the pictures that accompany the manuscript. This is written in easy to understand terms and if you’re a coach like me is a very useful reference when needed. I thoroughly recommend this book to coaches and boxers alike.

Happy Enough

 on 11 March 2014
By Danny Sloss
The book came in good condition however the postman decided to bend it to fit through letter box. Not the sellers fault. The book is not as detailed as i hoped and is lacking on the complexity of how to throw basic shots e.g foot positioning, body movement etc. I learnt nothing new from this book which is a shame however its ok for somebody who knows almost nothing about boxing. a descent enough book for the coffee table. but i feel the book doesn’t live up to the hype that others have commented.

good

little too expensive for what it is. But a good book worth having if you are serious about amateur boxing.
