The Death Pyramids Extreme Boxing Workout is fairly simple and adaptable.

We begin AGAIN with throwing jab cross– jab cross– Jab cross continuously and as fast as possible while twisting your torso and rocking the shoulders as much as possible.

My description to my students is to pretend you have someone in the corner and you’re beating them with straight punches.

Your hands must rock all the way back to your cheek and extend at least three quarters of the way out, Chin down.

Each time you throw a cross, you count that as one set and you throw 10 or 20 crosses. This is a total of either 20 punches for beginners or 40 punches for elite athletes.

The first 2 times you execute this workout/drill, only throw 20 punches for each set. Once you have mastered this, we double the amount of punches.

This is where the Death Pyramids come into play:

Execute 1 Wall Pushup (a standing pushup against the wall)

Then

Execute 1 Floor Pushup (a normal pushup)

Execute your punches on the heavy bag again (20 or 40 punches)

Execute 2 Wall push-ups (a standing pushup against the wall)

Then

Execute 2 Floor push-ups (a normal pushup)

Execute your punches on the heavy bag again (20 or 40 punches)

Execute 3 Wall push-ups (a standing pushup against the wall)

Then

Execute 3 Floor push-ups (a normal pushup)

Execute your punches on the heavy bag again (20 or 40 punches)

• Continue this until you execute 10 wall push-ups and 10 floor push-ups
To date, only 2 of my students have been able to finish this boxing workout without either resting for at least 30 seconds or doing modified push-ups.

So the total for the entire workout is 200 punches and 55 wall push-ups, 55 floor push-ups for beginners.

Highly fit individuals executing 40 punches per set = 400 punches, 55 wall push-ups, 55 floor push-ups.

This drill takes about 5 to 7 minutes.

Only the most fit amateurs and professionals are usually able to finish this work out without doing push-ups in the modified position (on your knees).

When a person cannot do any more standard push-ups they should immediately drop to their knees into modified push-ups, (formally known as girl push-ups).

I do not refer to these types of push-ups as girl push-ups, because eventually everyone, EVERYONE, even the most fit athletes, should be doing modified push-ups at some point.

If this is not the case they’re not doing enough push-ups in between each set.

Extreme Boxing Workout Example:

20 punches + 1 wall push-ups + 1 floor push-up

Add 1 floor pushup and 1 wall pushup on every set

X 10 sets


200 (or 400) punches & 110 push-ups
Total Time 5-7 minutes

Adaptation

Instead of executing floor push-ups – Change it to a Burpee with a pushup (Holy Shit!!)

(Keep a puke bucket handy)
