PhysioRoom.com continues to follow British Boxing hopeful Anthony Ogogo on his goal to reach London 2012. In our latest interview we explore his training schedule.
Anthony Ogogo shares his training diary with PhysioRoom.com
Anthony Tell us what a typical day’s training is like?
I train three times a day five days a week.
7am: I run in the morning 7 o’clock and that varies because we do different runs each day. An eight, nine mile run is probably the longest I would do, plus short 50 metre sprints.
10.30am: At 10.30am I do 45 minutes of strengthening and conditioning. So mainly we’ll do three to four strength exercises – squats, bench press, etc, to work the major muscle groups.
1pm onwards: In the afternoon we do techniques sessions. Only about 30 minutes long and not very intense, it’s just about technique.
When we do our main live boxing session, we do sparring, pad work, bag work, circuits, skipping, and a general boxing session.
