Athletic Greens is Why I Don't Take a Daily Multivitamin Anymore

After reviewing and using Athletic Greens for a couple months now, it's time to explain why I now recommend it instead of a daily multivitamin for my clients.

...But, before I discuss Athletic Greens in detail, I want to take a minute to let you ponder whether it is something you should be taking at all...

If you were to enroll in a Commando Boxing coaching program, until recently, one of the daily habits that I'd work to instill in you is the habit of taking a daily multivitamin. That habit is based on research such as that done by the WHO indicating that over 2 billion people worldwide in both developing and industrialized countries suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies (primarily iodine, iron, vitamin A and zinc), with important health consequences.

To help you transform your body and become a better boxer, my initial focus from a nutrition perspective is on eliminating any barriers to progress caused by deficiencies in Omega 3, vitamin and minerals, water, and protein. A daily multivitamin is one means of rectifying any potential vitamin and mineral deficiencies you may have.

The Speed Bag Bible - Review

Running Time: Depends on set: 2-6 hours.

Buy Now

This review was three months in the making. Alan Kahn, author and producer of The Speed Bag Bible sent me a package just before Christmas in 2006 and it took nearly three months to get through it due to the sheer volume of information his speed bag program provides.

I don't want to explicitly compare Alan's program to others I've looked at, but I will say that Alan has created his program to be highly adaptive and flexible and there is nothing I have seen that compares in this regard.

He teaches 24 individual punching and elbow striking techniques that can be combined into hundreds of combinations. His program unleashes your imagination and his training will have you hitting the speed bag with rhythm and style.

Top Twenty Boxing Websites

I like to think that Commando Boxing is the best of the boxing websites on the internet, but of course that would just be arrogant. There are many boxing websites that are worthy of mention, so here's my top twenty favorite boxing websites on the internet.  It's a hodge podge of different categories, but I'm sure you'll get the jist.

The Aqua Punching Bag Review

The thrill of hitting flesh was just too much...

Boxers form special bonds with their heavy bags. 

Aqua Punching Bag
Bad Boy Blue - Aqua Punching Bag

It's a love-hate relationship.  You show up each day to try and kill it and it just hangs there taunting you - winning every single fight you have with it.  But you love it still the same.

I was perfectly happy with my 100lb heavy bag and then Eddie Rivera, inventor of the Aqua Punching Bag sent me one of their water filled bags to try out. 

For the last week and a bit I've been cheating on my heavy bag with this unique teardrop bag from Gloversville, New York, USA.  I love my old heavy bag so I'm almost ashamed to admit it - but I'm certain that my week-long affair with the Aqua Punching Bag will turn into something more serious.

The Gymboss Interval Timer Review

Boxing workouts are basically forms of interval training. You reap all of the benefits of that type of training which includes more calorie burn during and after training, muscle gain, ability to do more work, increased power, and so on.

Any type of interval training requires you to work hard for a specific length of time, followed by a rest period of a specific length of time. It is a mistake to try and do this without some type of timer to keep you on track. If you don't, you'll find your periods of hard work getting shorter while your rest periods get longer - resulting in a less effective workout. If you're going to workout, you might as well get the most out of your time.
