RossBoxing.com Is Back

For those who do not follow my posts on Facebook or Twitter, I wanted to let everyone know that I am bringing back my original website.

RossBoxing.com

I started RossBoxing in 2001. Many of the older readers here may know me from that original site. I look forward to bringing it back to life with a variety of boxing related entries. The revised site will naturally focus on boxing training with a particular emphasis on old school methods and fighters.

RossTraining will certainly remain as well, but will be updated within the next month or so. First, I will be moving the forum to a new server. Once the forum has been moved, I will then update the blog to become more user and mobile friendly.

I am not a techie by trade however so I cannot guarantee that the transition won’t come without a few hiccups. I will do my best to make the transition as seamless as possible though. If you wish to stay in touch with related updates, I will be posting any new developments to Facebook and Twitter.

I look forward to taking RossBoxing and RossTraining to new levels in the weeks and months ahead.

Lastly, for those who have asked about eating and training during the holiday season, take a look at the article that I wrote after last year’s Thanksgiving feast. As is always the case, I ate myself into a food coma and enjoyed every minute of it.

The Holiday Season

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.

Deception vs. Reality

The article linked to below has been making its way around social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. I came across it recently and believe it is worthy of a share. What you’ll see within shouldn’t come as a surprise… More deception within the fitness industry.

The Truth About Transformation Photos

+++++

Upon sharing the article on Facebook, the following video was referenced within one of the comments. Like the article above, you’ll see another case of deceiving before and after photos.

+++++

The take home lesson from these examples is quite simple. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Real results take time. Successful training is a lifelong journey. There is no expiration date. Only so much can be accomplished in a few months.

Hard work and patience may not be marketable terms, but that does not diminish their significance. You may not like the truth, but at least be aware of it. If you wish to improve, prepare for the long haul. It is going to take time.

RossTraining on Instagram

For those interested, I have joined Instagram. I’ve been asked about it many times and finally took the plunge. You can follow me @rosstraining. It is still brand new to me but I’ve started to add a few training pictures.

The first image that I’ve added can be seen above. It was taken yesterday while training outside in the woods. It’s amazing how challenging and fun an outdoor session can be. We mixed in a variety of pull-ups, tree climbing, stone carries and throws, log lifts, calisthenics, and finished with some sprints at the top of the mountain. It made for a fun and challenging full body session while enjoying the great outdoors.

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. – Lao Tzu
