Just Started

Hi everyone! I am a 18 year old male weighing just 58KG at 6ft3in height. I started boxing like a week ago. I'm very weak. I spent almost 14 years of my life sitting in front of computer playing games. I did nothing physical. So i am finding it very difficult to train at the boxing gym. I don't have problems with what my coach makes me do indoors (like sparring, push ups, pull ups, shadow boxing etc) but the outdoor workout, i am finding it very very difficult. He makes us run a lot. But i get tired after running like 0.5 kilometres. My stamina is very low. So what i wanted to ask is how much time will it take for me to get the stamina to run like 2miles without stopping. By running i mean jog. But after completeing the 2miles jogging he makes us run fast for like 0.5miles. I get too tired doing all that and i feel like i am gonna die. So how much time will it take for me to get the stamina i need to run without getting tired. If its gonna take more than a month then i'll probably quit. Please help me with good answers. Thanks.

Hey, I'm new to boxing too at 2 months.

One thing I'll say is this. YOU GOTTA WANT IT! Your coaches are going to yell at you, push you when you're wasted. You're gonna heave, you're going to throw up. You will become stronger for it.

You're fighting. If you want to win, you need to keep working hard. You said sparring isn't an issue. When your coach says "one more?" always say "yea". He'll know when you're done and take your headgear off. 2 weeks ago, I felt sloppy and didn't go 3 rounds. I regretted it and went 5 the next day.

One thing I'll say is your trainer should be building you up. If he's insulting you and putting you down for struggling even if you giving your all.. get a new trainer. Jogging 2 miles and running a mile is way easier than going 3 rounds at 100%.

I'm sure you've seen this:

Thx a lot for replying. You support is definitely going to help me. Do you study anything? I am an engineering student and i find it very difficult to study because of the hard training. So what i wanted to know is how much time will it take to get normal with the training. You know, like how mucn time will it take for me to get used to the training and not feel tired for longer than 1 hour after the training?

I'm done with school and just doing this for fun. I'm tired after my workout, but try to get good sleep and eat well. I drink caffeine to stay awake when I have to accomplish a task when I have to. I was never good with eating fruits and veggies, but lately have found smoothies to be an awesome way to get a quick digesting meal in. You don't want to say eat a burger and go spar. The smoothies give me good energy and recovery. I usually toss in vanilla yogurt, banana, frozen strawberries, spinach, and a good scoop of protein pow. I've been drinking 2 of these a day on top of 3 meals. Usually an hour before working out and right after. I'm typically running on adrenaline after my workouts so I'm not tired. Then I hit a wall.

Train with your limits in mind. I've been athletic all of my life, and the main thing I try to keep in mind is where the line is. If I play with the line too much, I get hurt. Smoothies (lol) and other things aside, do it for yourself. Addressing your question about getting used to the training... workout as your body allows. I'm the kind of person that's always trying to raise the bar, so if i'm not sore or tired, I feel like I didn't do enough.

I box because I'm masochistic and love the fast and intense workouts involved. I've never been so fit in my life. It's not a "oh I want a beach body" kinda thing. It's more satisfaction from the process... progress. I work with a tight community of good people. They are like family and keep me positive. What kind of program are you in? I'm not in any kind of formal boxing program, so I'm not forced to do anything. I just like it. If I wrench my shoulder or tweak my foot (both right now), I rest up and do other things. Sorry, I'm ADD and longwinded..

I like this video when I'm feeling lazy.

That is no big deal,Just stay mentally relax and take it easy.It's never too late all you need to do is change your focus and develop some interest in physical activities.Eat healthy food and go for training/running or other spots that can help you a lot in gaining mass stamina and strength.

Hay to all,

I have in reality just start my boxing under a expert coach he directed me that it will take some time to becoming expert.So practice is much necessary in this regard.
