I have been boxing over a span of 4-5 years, but in bursts of months. Then I lose motivation and faith in myself. I become intensely demotivated and I quit like a bitch!
I guess I have psychological issues, including depression, and I tend to quit in face of challenges.
(I now wish I ******* stuck with boxing since I first started, I'd be decent by now haha).
When I watch my first and only fight, I become embarrassed. Sloppy, tense, as nervous as I ever can remember being, and discarding everything I've ever learned about boxing. Also, my coach had faith in me, so he secretly paired my with this dude with way more experience (he had around 20 fight), and so when I lost, I felt like I let myself and my coach down. Here's the fight:
4. Robert Gatica vs Simen Kumneneje - YouTube
I'm in the blue corner.
All feedback is highly appreciated.
(Also, kindly disregard my Roy Jones Jr. inspired left hand drop LOL).
Now, after the summer, I will hopefully start with at least my roommate, and maybe a few more friends at my local gym, and I hope this will provide me with a needed kick in back to motivate me.
To prepare for this, I want to start slowly training.
At my disposal, I have a basement with a heavy bag, jumping ropes, bag gloves and a barbell kit (for one hand).
My stamina is very, very bad. So bad a couple of years ago, I checked myself for asthma!
Anyway, I'm thinking jogging every other day, and gym work every other day, but I feel like it's key not to over exert myself so I lose motivation again.
Day 1: Sit ups and core exercises, 20-25 minutes road work with a pulse of avg. 170 bpm.
Day 2: Push ups (3 sets), 3 rounds rope, 3 rounds heavy bag, and that drill when you jump and do 1 push up. These drills will increase when I get better stamina, every 2 weeks or so?
Finally, any tips for nervousness in the ring sparring and in match? I find this winds me easily!
Thanks for your guys' help! Any input is extremely valued!
P.S: Still in awe after the Pacquiao fight.
