My 5 Step System for Motivational Training
1) Aqua Training: 2-3 times weekly
Aqua training builds stamina and lean muscles with increased flexibility. The water’s natural resistance does two things: it decreases the stress on your joints and increases the workload on your muscles. A 30 minute shadow boxing session neck deep in the water is equal to an hour session above water. Also decreases the chance of a joint or muscle pull during the work out. During the program you will be in the pool with me 2 times to become accustom to the work out and learn the benefits by actively being involved.
2) Talk Therapy: 2 times weekly
Talk therapy simply gives a Fighter an emotional opening to ‘verbally’ release any professional/personal issues that his team does not want him to take in the ring. Some may say “BS”- Beverly Cooper Boxing Program strongly instills discipline to follow the coach’s game plan for each and every fight. A person with a different perspective on your situation CAN help you decide how to fix the problems you are having, and how to deal with the things you cannot fix. Through discussion, you can find ways to handle your problems so that the same issues will not continually disrupt the forward momentum towards a World Championship Belt. A well-conditioned body and mind stays focused and sharp which is likely to respond the way you need it to when having to go the distance in a fight. Throughout the program we will have several scheduled times to sit down and give you the opportunity to talk about your goals, motivations and weakness as you see them. This is Sports Psychology at its best!
3) Deep Tissue Massage: 1-2 times weekly
Deep Tissue Massage combined with Sports Massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. (Sounds like every fighter after a bout) When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. During the program you will have 1 hour session with a licensed massage therapist.
4) Balance Dance: 1-2 times weekly
Repetition induces muscle memory to correct a poor stance and balance. This is a combination of Tai Chi and beam board work. By loosening the joints and spine to relax points of tension in the body, Tai Chi can help strengthen the digestive, circulatory and skeletal systems. Along with the physical benefits of Tai Chi, it is often described as a ‘moving meditation’ because its slow, turning motions relieve stress, improve concentration, and create a sense of peacefulness. In addition the ’beam board’ is likened to a balance beam in gymnastics, but is on the floor with no height to fall from. It is used to increase core body knowledge of one’s limitations to stay in a well-grounded balance position while training and fighting. During the program you will participate in 2 Tai Chi sessions where I will instruct you in breathing and stretching exercises and 1 session in beam board balance training.
5) Daily Documentation: of water and nutritional intake
Daily documentation done by the fighter is basically a check the box form – this gives accountability to the fighter to be active in his own health. Forms are used to update and/or change intake during the training process prior to a scheduled fight. As a participant in Beverly Cooper Program you will be given a “6 Pack” Meal Container. To aid in daily responsible eating habits vs greasy fast food or frequenting a restaurant. With the “6 Pack” System you have ‘clean’ food, supplements and water right at your arms reach. No more severe dieting to make weight 3-4 weeks prior to a fight. Your fight weight will be within 5-8 pounds of your walk around weight.”
