Fidel Tukel is a well-known boxing trainer and manager in Sydney, Australia. In 2007, he opened Black town Hit Squad, a boxing gym that allowed him to train and manage several Olympic hopefuls.
Unlike many of the other sports featured in the Olympics, boxers spend most of their time training and very little time in actual competition. Their primary objective is to get into peak physical condition and be ready when it’s time to compete.
Olympic boxers undergo extensive aerobic and anaerobic fitness regimes, during their training, while focusing on their reflexes and improving their flexibility. Aerobic conditioning helps build the boxers endurance, allowing them to last in the ring for a more extended period. Anaerobic conditioning focuses on developing the boxer’s strength.
Boxers need to have sharp reflexes to avoid punches and engage in counter punches. To develop their reflexes, they must perform exercises that are designed to improve their reaction times.
Fidel Tukel creates specialized programs for the boxers that he trains to help them get ready for their next fight.
