To become lean and fit like a boxer, you will want to align four main nutrition principles: proper eating frequency, proper nutrient timing, proper balance of macronutrients and proper total caloric intake. This will enable you to have the necessary energy for training, and it will enhance recovery. These principles will assist you in increasing your metabolism and facilitating your body to burn fat as its primary fuel source.

Eating Frequency

Eat five to eight times per day to stabilize blood sugar and keep you energy levels high all day long. This eating frequency will keep your glycogen stores (glycogen is energy for the body, formed from the ingestion of carbohydrates) loaded and reloaded. Just like a boxer, this high eating frequency will start with breakfast and will end with dinner and possibly recovery fuel prior to bed. This recovery fuel prior to bed will assist in muscle repair, powering you up for the next days workout.

Nutrient Timing

Before your early morning workout, consume a complex carbohydrate fuel source for an even more productive training session. This will allow you to top off your glycogen stores to facilitate fat burning. During your workout, sip on a fluid replacement drink to replace calories and electrolytes to prevent muscle cramping. Following your workout, consume a recovery fuel source containing mainly carbohydrates and some protein to reload glycogen stores. This recovery fuel enables boxers to have productive training sessions day after day.


Carbohydrates are going to be the mainstay of your nutrition plan. Your carbohydrate intake should be 50 to 65 percent of your total daily consumed calories. Fat will burn in the presence of carbohydrates, and this high carbohydrate consumption keeps boxers extremely lean. Focus on complex carbohydrates (as opposed to simple sugars) such as whole wheat breads and pasta, brown rice, quinoa and sweet potatoes. You also want to consume fruit, which will provide great antioxidants. Antioxidants are critical to your nutrition plan, as these will combat free radicals brought about during heavy training loads.

Protein and Fat

Protein will make up approximately 20 to 30 percent of your daily calories. It is the amino acids (building blocks of protein) in the protein sources that assist in muscle repair. Consume lean protein sources such as chicken, fish, beef, egg whites and protein supplements. Your third macronutrient, dietary fat, should consist of 20 to 30 percent of your daily caloric intake. Consume dietary fat from sources such as nuts, nut butters and flax.

Antioxidants and Total Calories

To combat free radical damage (free radicals are formed during times of stress, training, etc.), consume antioxidants from fruits, vegetables and multivitamins. Take a multivitamin each morning and consume fruit and vegetables with four to six of your meals and snacks. Your total daily caloric intake will be based on your goals (weight loss, weight gain, etc.). If you are looking to maintain your weight, determine your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate; this is the amount of calories we burn at rest) using a body fat scale. If you have a BMR of 2,000 calories, consume 2,000 to 2,200 calories per day and add an additional 350 to 650 calories per hour of training.

2-a-Day Training Day

If you choose to train two times per day like a boxer, here is an example of what your daily nutrition will look like:

Consume a liquid carbohydrate pre-training supplement consisting of 60 to 70 percent carbohydrates prior to your early morning workout. During your training session, sip on one to two bottles of fluid replacement drink. Immediately following your workout, consume recovery fuel consisting of 70 to 80 percent carbohydrate.

For breakfast, consume a whole wheat bagel with peanut butter, a banana and 6 egg whites. For a mid-morning snack, eat an apple, a can of vegetable juice, almonds and a protein drink followed by a 12-inch turkey sub on whole wheat bread with vegetables and cheese for lunch.

Prior to your afternoon workout (sip on a bottle of fluid replacement drink during this workout), repeat the pre-training fuel from earlier followed by a post workout recovery supplement containing 70 to 80 percent carbohydrates. For dinner, consume a grilled chicken breast, whole wheat pasta with sauce, vegetables and a salad. To facilitate recovery and maximize your training session the next day, consume a protein drink one hour before bed.

Boxing training can be done at home.
Intense and strenuous, boxing training is one of the most effective methods of exercise. Though many aspects of the training are best done in a boxing gym, a home gym can be effective too.
  1. Running

    • Running is the most basic form of boxing training, and it can be done without a boxing gym. The base level of leg and cardiovascular conditioning produced by running is the layer upon which all other boxing fitness is built. Punching power starts with the legs, but as a fight wears on, a boxer's legs can tire and lose strength, lessening his punching effectiveness. Extensive running can build the legs and condition them to retain strength late into fights.

    Jumping Rope

    • You do not need a boxing gym to train by jumping rope. To jump rope, all you need is an area with a tall ceiling or no ceiling at all. To start, focus on the simple act of jumping over the rope as it reaches the ground. As your coordination and fitness improves, you can twist the rope and alter your cadence to work on your footwork. Jumping rope helps build on the conditioning gained through running and improves footwork and agility.

    Heavy Bag

    • One of the most utilized pieces equipment in a boxing gym, a heavy bag could be used in a home gym as well. To mount a heavy bag, you will need an exposed ceiling beam, so it is probably best mounted in a garage. When the bag is mounted, you can practice punching combinations and work on your conditioning just as you would in a boxing gym. Punches include the jab, uppercut, cross and hook. The jab is a straight punch thrown by the fist closest to the opponent. The uppercut is a vertical punch, usually thrown at the chin from below. The hook is a horizontal punch thrown from side to side and usually aimed at the chin. The cross is a straight punch like the jab but thrown across the body. Punching combinations can be any grouping of one or more punch types thrown in quick succession.

    Speed Bag

    • Like the heavy bag, a speed bag is heavily utilized in boxing gyms, but they also easy to set up for home workouts. A speed bag is probably best set up in a garage, requiring only that the bag apparatus is screwed to two wall studs. The speed bag can be tricky at first, so expect to practice for weeks before you can start doing full training. To start, hit the bag. The bag will hit the back of the apparatus and spring forward. When it swings forward and hits the front of the apparatus, strike the bag again. Continue this motion, alternating punching hands. When you have the rhythm down, start building up arm strength and hand speed by performing timed sessions mixed with other training.

    Shadow Boxing

    • A staple of the boxing gym, shadowboxing can be done anywhere a mirror is available. Shadowboxing is basically standing alone in front of a mirror, mixing footwork and punching combinations. Take the punching combinations you have learned on the heavy bag and practice them while bouncing around and pretending to dodge punches from an opponent. Using a mirror allows you to self-analyze your own form.


    • Sparring is the most effective method of boxing training but also the most difficult to incorporate in a home gym setting. Sparring is exhibition boxing, with the goal of practicing skills and developing fitness without determining a winner. A good choice would be to set up an area outside where you can spar on the grass or a mat. Because sparring can be so physical, and there is a danger of being knocked down or out, be very careful of the surface upon which you spar, as you could end up falling and hitting your head on it.
