For some reason, I constantly gas no matter how hard I work inside the gym and how much sprints and roadwork i put in. The first thing that seems to give out would be my arms. My punch output is low and when I'm fighting or sparring someone who is constantly on me, I don't have the stamina to throw combination on combination to push them back. I get to the point where I can't even hold my hands up.

Could someone help me out here? I'm fed up with gassing in fights costing me wins when I'm dominating the first 2 rounds.

Currently my road work, 2x a week I do slow paced 3 mile runs and then 2x a week 3 miles of intervals then one short sprint day. I'm boxing 4x a week and I plan to go to the gym to work on muscular endurance, I've got the strength portion but there's no point if I cant even keep up the pace and get tired from the pressure and wrestling. I'm constantly paranoid about gassing out in fights at this point and i'm tired of it.

Experience helps a lot here. The main key is staying calm, breathing correctly, and pacing yourself. The more you load up your shots and clench your fists it will drain your cardio so be sparing with how hard you punch. Anxiety is a major cardio killer in boxing so learn to loosen up, punch in a pattern, pace yourself and relax. Another thing, Focus on technique and speed then the power will come naturally after that.

The amount of running you say you are doing seems adequate for a novice if you are still training regularly. In between rounds, learn to slow your heart rate and breathing down.

Some may not agree but I say Increase Bag work to help with cardio and muscle endurance. Many rounds, come up with bag drills to tire you out. It will help your muscle endurance and keep pounding away to increase your capacity. Increase shadow boxing as well. Will do wonders with helping your power punching technique as well.

A shitty diet will also mess with your stamina so make sure to eat the proper foods and drink plenty of water. Give yourself time to rest.

The main key is being relaxed though, experience and being comfortable and the 3-4 X 2 minute rounds will come naturally. Don't doubt yourself either, don't leave anything left in training. Don't be afraid of gassing out in training because that what you do in training, push your limits so your threshold is higher come fight time.

@Dealt_with might have better tips but it may cost you money
