Mental Tools For Boxers
Mental Training In Boxing Review
Boxing is not just for professional boxers, boxing for fitness is really what I do boxing for. Let me explain a bit about my self and the point of this blog and the review on a boxing book to give you great mental training to be a great boxer for fun or to become an amateur or professional boxer or just to get fit.
I was born with bent arms,no shoulder muscles much to speak about and both arms only had 10% of bicep muscles,all in all a pretty sorry sight to view.
I was put into Great Ormond Street hospital for kids at 3 days of age. At the age of 12 and 6 big operations to transplant muscles from different parts of my body I was a skinny punk of a kid. Bearing in mind this was back in 1962 and medicine and cosmetic surgery has come a long way in 49 years.
I turned my Mothers garage into a gym. Down the road to me was a guy that had a metal shop making all types of products for companies-to cut a long story short he, I guess felt sorry for me and we designed a few pieces of equipment, like pulleys and ways to stop my training weights do me harm-no gyms much in those days so one trained alone.
Any how after some 2 years my body was just ok-I took up Karate,which helped my movements, but better still was my break through into the concept of my mind. More on that soon. There was boxing at my school, I joined much to the laughter of my class mates-Kids can be cruel some times.
The guy teaching the boxing was around 50yrs old and a gymnast Jim Abraham’s (my respect to him). He changed my life, not by just teaching me to box but was a mentor to my mind-I never won any fights but got the respect from my class mates as they saw my broken nose and black eyes-I was in paradise!!
There was nothing in life I could not have a go at, my view was if I can go 5 rounds not get knocked out boxing and protect my self, shit bring it on.
This is now when we will discuss the benefits of fighting your mind demons and fears to progress one as a great boxer and champion but also how you use these lessons in general life.
Rather than me explain all, suffice to say I recently came across a Ebook written by The Boxing Training Foundation.This guy Fran Sands caught my attention as came across some of his videos on boxing on his website
Go and view his site-To me You will love the simple but truths he opens your mind to in boxing training- I wish That I could have the expertise that Fran has to put together so well on his website –well done mate-another of my mentors.
