Boxing Science’s 10-week strength and conditioning program is the essential program for boxing athletes of all levels.
If you’re looking to better yourself physically and punch harder, then this strength and conditioning program is for you!
We will take you through 10-weeks of challenging strength training, designed specifically to improve boxing performance. Based on years of research and coaching experience, our strength training philosophy is developed to meet the demands of boxing as well as adapting to the limitations of the sport.
Why is Strength Training Important for Boxing?
Punching forces in amateur boxing are around 2500 N… If you weigh 70 kg (11 stone or 154 lbs), you’ll exert about 700 N of force just stood still. That makes punching force about 3.5 times body mass.
And to make that even more impressive your punch takes around six-hundredths of a second (~60 ms) to throw.
Punching requires rapid force development and can be developed by explosive strength training.
Our program is not your typical strength and conditioning program… we also share the ‘Science Behind the Punch’ and what are the principles of our strength training methods.
We also educate you on the six pillars or movement patterns that form any strength session at Boxing Science. Most strength programs are just exercises on a screen for you to follow. What makes Boxing Science different is the commitment to educate you on why we use exercises and the transfer they have towards improving boxing performance.
Within the program, you will receive full coaching mastery videos on the following:

At Boxing Science, we’ve tried and tested our strength programs with 100’s of boxers. World champions to amateur boxers – our program is accessible for all!
Some of the fantastic champions include; Kell Brook, Nicola Adams, Gavin and Jamie Mcdonnell, Anthony Fowler, Jordan Gill, Derek Chisora + more.
However, it’s not just delivered in our training labs. We have developed a range of online training programmes that have been accessed by 1000’s of athletes and coaches from all over the world;

Do Weight’s Make You Slow?
Traditionally, heavy strength training is a controversial method for boxing and combat sports. The feeling that “weights make you slow” often puts off athletes and coaches lifting heavy…..
… There is an element of truth to that. If you train too heavy too often for too long – it will make athletes too slow!
At Boxing Science, we meet the demands of the sport by making athletes strong, fast and explosive with carefully structured S&C programming.
A punch is delivered in a blink of an eye, often under 200 ms. This requires an athlete to produce a lot of force in a very short amount of time, often referred to as the Rate of Force Development (RFD).
Also during of our main findings that jump height and trunk mass had a strong relationship with medicine ball punch throw distance. This suggests that the higher you can jump, and the stronger your core is, the harder you can punch. This is how we structure our programmes, and how we will transform you into a faster and stronger athlete.
Our data analysis suggested that traditional boxing methods are ineffective at getting boxers forceful and fast, and that there’s a need for strength training to assist in the development of punch force.
This means that our methods are EVIDENCE BASED and OUTCOME DRIVEN to match the DEMANDS of Boxing… creating strong, fast and explosive athletes!
