The Original and Best “Old School Fightcamp” is well underway for 2013.We are 2 weeks into the progam and we have certainly had some tough training sessions to get the boys in tip top shape for the bouts on June 27.
Jack Duffy lost 4kg in week 1 and many of the other boys are catching up to him now at the half way point. Stingray has had man flu for what seems to be for the last 5 years but keeps soldering on and he is also putting in the hard yards at Training.
There are quite a few new boys in fightcamp this time with some big wake up calls for them ,like when I took them on a 14minute Hill Run followed by the dreaded G’20’s.
Everyone is putting in a great effort and it is always a great team building exercise,with all the boys bonding closely and then boxing off on the final night.

The Importance of H2O The average person drinks soda either casually or routinely — an unfortunate statistic. Soda contains huge amounts of simple carbs that are difficult to breakdown due to their overwhelming quantity. Most sodas are packed with an abundance of sugar, and diet sodas are filled with unhealthy replacements for sugar. Limiting your soda intake can have significant benefits for your health. Replace other beverages with water. Water makes up about 2/3 of your bodyweight, and plays an important part in nearly every bodily function, including:
- Flushing out toxins
- Increasing metabolism
- Lubricating joints and muscles
- Regulating body temperature
- Eliminating aches and pains caused by dehydration
Do your best to drink water throughout the day. Experts disagree on exactly how much water to drink, but an active individual should generally drink between 8 to 10 cups every day.
Be Aware, Not Overwhelmed
