  1. I'm gonna take up boxing at the military fighting club. Booya!

  2. ya what do you need to know?
  3. You are going to be beaten like the fat american you are.
  4. I dunno, I don't really know much about boxing other than what you can gain by watching it on TV. Anything I should do in preparation before I start, or is it just a jump in with both feet and get going kind of thing?
  5. crap all you need is cardio cardio cardio
    do alot of jumproping

    also when you punch twist your fist (theyll tell u how)

  6. How cliche!

    I did it for a while in London. WCW is the resident boxing expert. Holla!
  7. wcw is your source for hands. I've got elbows, knees and kicks covered.
    Start doing lots of skipping, and fast pushups. Practice keeping your guard up, as that's probably the most difficult thing for a beginner. It only uses a couple of small muscles and is really fatiguing when you start.
  8. you'll be doing a lot of conditioning and training before you spar. those 16 oz gloves get really heavy after throwing punches for a few minutes. boxing workouts are the best.
  9. recreation boxing. it's le fun. keep your elbows in.
  10. 16oz training gloves ftw. Definitely don't jump into sparring, you'll:
    a) get your ass kicked
    b) get frustrated
    c) continue to throw poor technique
  11. Hmmm, well my cardio is pretty good insofar as running goes. Sounds like I'll need to step it up a bit though.
  12. running helps, but you still need a lot of sport specific fitness.
  13. YOU'RE the cliche!

  14. No guffaw? <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    But I thought all military personnel had to do boxing when they started? How's the training going? Are you flying 'alone' yet?
  15. not all military is the SS
  16. WCW is going take you down. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  17. Hmmm, I assumed since back in Pakistan and Dubai I'm sure they do. Atleast the officers do.
  18. Juggalos, lol.
  19. might be time to quit smoking?
  20. I used to but then everyone got bigger than me.
  21. Burner probably is. Burner can do everything and do it better than you.
  22. No, officers don't have to do anything mandatory after basic, but if you let yourself go enough to fail your yearly V2-Max test, they give you the option of either sending you to RFT (fat camp), which is basically 8 hours of cardio a day for 6 weeks, or a voluntary release from the forces. So it's best not to let yourself go.
  23. I only in da mystery of chessboxin
  24. Oh okay, understood. Do it, its an excellent workout.
  25. pffft. I can run farther and faster than anyone here on these boards who doesn't happen to be training for some kind of marathon.
