Page 62 Overtraining Overtraining occurs when the exercises exceeds the boxers’ capacity of physical and psychological limit. Overtraining can be occurred for example due to inappropriate training loads (intensity and volume) which are not adapted to boxer’s limits, inappropriate selection of training exercises, bad structure of short-term and long-term training plan, wrong number of competitions planned for boxer and etc. It is important for coaches to avoid overtraining boxers. PHYSIOLOGICAL SIGNS OF OVERTRAINING Sleep disturbance, restlessness an excitability Loss of coordination Increase sensation of thirst Loss of appetite Headaches, nausea, increase muscle soreness Loss of competitive desire PSYCHOLOGICAL SIGNS OF OVERTRAINING Feels despair and decreased self-esteem Sensibility to environmental and emotional stress Fear of competition and resistant to challenge In order to avoid the overtraining, knowledge of the boxer is critical, allowing the coach to see a problem before it gets out of the control and continuously monitor the boxer’s heart rate and behaviors. Prevention is the key to avoid overtraining. With good planning, effort, a structured, fun and beneficial sport program shall be constructed and training session must be carefully monitoring or recorded to learn about the boxer and providing enough rest are vital to reducing the incidence of overtraining. TACTICAL TRAINING Tactics are the strategies used in competitions. Coaches can build and plan tactics based on the boxer’s style of boxing, strengths and weaknesses; the opponent’s boxing styles and his/her strengths and weaknesses. ( see styles described in the next section: Boxing Against Different Character Boxers ) Boxers can benefit from tactics, because good tactics will allow boxers to use less physical effort and techniques in bouts. This will allow boxers to stay in good condition physically and psychologically. However, tactics are not the sole responsibility of coaches. Coaches and boxers can discuss and share experience and knowledge to build strengths and tactics that fit the boxers. These tactics must be trained during training sessions for the boxers to remember and carry out during the competitions. In competition, coaches and boxers must remember that they must use different tactics accordingly. In order to make adjustment to tactics in the ring: Be relaxed, don’t be too tense Never underestimate or over-impressed by an opponent Act confident in the ring; avoid any display of discomfort or tiredness

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
