Working out of a boxing gym affords Brian Casad ample opportunities to insert cardio into his training, but this gym owner also has plenty of classic weightlifting equipment at Title Boxing Gym in Uptown Dallas.

He does a lot of cardio, a lot of ab work, and a lot of resistance training, making his lifting week a hodgepodge of differing physical fitness challenges. "I like to lift heavy, but I also like to do high repetitions, monster sets," Brian says. "I love doing supersets, which is one of the more regular things I do. I also like to do a lot of powerlifting. I like to do anything and everything, so I don't get bored. So many people get bored with their workouts. They're doing the same routines."



Brian's Training Philosophy

For Brian, there is no typical week. Each afternoon he hits the weight room and listens to his body. Whichever body part is rested and needs training gets worked out.

He does a different morning cardio routine every day. Sometimes it's stairs, a plyometric circuit, or his favorite, boxing. "Boxing is one of the best workouts you can do," Brian says. "It's a total-body workout, especially if you learn how to box properly. You use all your muscle, moving back and forth, using your core for everything. You blast your shoulders. You move up and down, using your legs. You can also incorporate plyometrics."

"Boxing is a total body workout, especially if you learn how to box properly. You use all your muscle, moving back and forth, using your core for everything."

Beyond the rings, jump ropes, and speed bags, Brian knows you need muscle to fight. "I got to design my own gym," he says. "I designed it where I have a full weight room. I have some rings and a cardio room. You can get any type of workout you want in there."
