Terence Crawford's Boxing Training Secrets

Terence Crawford's Boxing Training Secrets

Terence Crawford, well-known in the boxing world for his exceptional skills and unbeaten record, stands as a testament to the power of dedicated training and strategic physical conditioning. In this blog, we explore the training secrets behind Crawford's success, offering insights into the rigorous regimen that shapes one of the best boxers of our time.



Terence Crawford's Training Philosophy

Central to Crawford's success is a training philosophy that emphasizes adaptability, precision, and endurance. His approach to boxing training combines rigorous physical preparation with a strong mental game, setting him apart in the boxing world.

Inside Crawford's Training Regimen

Crawford's training routine is a diverse blend of activities designed to hone his boxing prowess and maintain peak physical condition:

A typical week in the champ’s training routine includes circuit training with weights, strength & conditioning workouts to improve speed and agility, core work where McIntyre bounces a heavy medicine ball off Crawford’s stomach while he’s doing crunches, mountain runs, and swimming.

Belt is especially a fan of swimming for cardio training, “We’ll swim for 30 minutes-to-an hour every night. It’s non-impact, basically, easy on their joints. It helps with recovery, regeneration of muscle cells and fibbers. It’s not natural for him so he has to work a little bit harder, it’s a different type of cardio from running. I think it helps tremendously on the cardio side.”

Then, of course, there’s sparring. A crucial element to any boxer’s training regimen. “We spar every other day and those days are very important,” Belt explained. “We do not like to lift weights on his sparring days. We want Terence to be as fresh as he can on those days. On his technical days, when he’s hitting pads, doing tactical and technical stuff, that’s when he’ll lift weights.”

Nutrition: Fueling a Boxing Champion

A balanced diet is integral to Crawford's training regime. His nutrition plan focuses on lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, and hydration, ensuring optimal performance and recovery.

“During camp, I let my coach handle everything with the food. My nutritionist tells him what she wants me to eat, and she fixes it,” he told Muscle & Fitness. “The last time, she actually was with me the entire camp and she handled everything with the food. I really don’t worry about that. They cook it, and I eat it.”
