    √The ideal boxer has high fitness, good technique, speed, strength and lots of stamina..im gona build strength, stamina and fitness before i work on the others..

    the triceps and the back will develop power from the compound exercises you will be doing.

    slow twitch fibres are a type of fibre in the muscle of which there are two. The fast twitch deal with the maximal strength part so a 1 rep max bench will use all of your fast twitch fibres. Slow twitch deal with the stamina and endurance part, repeating a movement over and over until exaustion wont hit the fast twitch fibres but will hit your slow twitch fibres, these type dont grow to nearly the extent as the fast twitch, but you will notice a different in the last round, as you will be less tired.

    I'm at the boxing gym 4-5 days a week, and at the regular gym the other times.

    All i can say is run. If you can't run, you can't box. It's alright saying 'i can punch' - not good enough, you need to be able to punch for rounds.

    You should spar everytime you have a chance too. Nail your technique through the heavy bag and a coach.

    This is pretty much my routine.

    M: conditioning - core training - skill (boxing) training
    T: strength - skill
    W: conditioning - core training - skill (boxing) training
    T: skill
    F: conditioning - core training - skill (boxing) training
    S: strength
    S: rest (active)

    With another weight session thrown in when i feel my best.

    core training is just that, abs/planks, medicine ball work, if you're stuck i can post loads.
    skill training is sparring, heavy bag, speed bag, technique, speed work, calisthenics.
    conditioning is running, HIIT, hill work, calisthenics/bw.
    strength is weights, lift explosively, compound movements. don't forget the legs, weak legs = weak punch.
