Unfortunately, I have not updated the blog for a long time. My job as a boxing coach made me do it, so I tried my best to support the site. Thus, while I apologize for the recent inactivity, I am also grateful that I am busy. With that said, I hope to do a better job of updating the site with fresh material.
As for what I have been doing in recent months, my own learning remains basically the same. Little has changed. I am still as old school as ever, and I have no plans (or reasons) to change. As the old saying goes, if it is not broken, do not correct it. With this in mind, I am not going to change.
In fact, I am shocked to say that there are exercises that I have been performing for more than 30 years. It seems strange to me that I even printed it. Where did the time go? It's amazing how fast it flies. However, although I cannot be a spring chicken, I always recall Satchel Page's old quote.
“How old are you if you don’t know how old you are?”
Physically, I do not feel otherwise than 10 or 20 years ago. And my reason for this is quite simple. When you wake up and exercise every day, you never feel that you are very different from what you did the day before. This (work) becomes part of who you are and what you do.
Hard work + coherence
As for my old school approach, the short video below shows a few exercises that you can do almost anywhere. There is nothing special in the movements, and I have no secrets. Everything I've ever created is nothing more than hard work and consistency.
Same old questions
However, since the clip was published above last week, my mailbox has been filled with many questions. Oddly enough, many questions are no different from those that I saw 15 years ago, when I started the site. People still ask what exercises to perform, how many repetitions, how many sets, how many days a week, etc.
Unfortunately, none of these questions have uniform or universal answers that can be applied to the masses. Regardless of what you read and learn, the time will come when you must understand what things are for you. And I do not say this to suggest that it is not useful to ask questions and seek knowledge. I just remind everyone that one of the best ways to learn is to roll up your sleeves and mess your hands.
In other words, experimenting with different ideas and studyThere is no reason to get bogged down in unnecessary complexity. Yes, the work is complicated, but the features can be quite simple. Effective learning is not as difficult as many of today's gurus would like you to believe.
Moving gears …
With that said, I'll switch gears for a moment now …
Since I haven't written for some time, and I have your attention, here is a shameless box-plug for everyone to tune in to Sky Sports or the new DAZN network to watch us in action on October 20 when Katie Taylor defends her world titles against Cindy Serrano.
And if you're wondering what to expect, here are a few highlights of our recent battle in July.

I'll be back soon!
Although I will be busy in the training camp for the next 2 months, my goal is to update the site at least once a week during this time. Therefore, I again apologize for the recent inactivity, but I look forward to returning the site in the coming weeks and months.
And if I don’t, don’t hesitate to email me and curse me! I always check my posts, even if I don’t actively update the site.
