Filed under: Exclusives!Q&AFitnessBoxing

Boxing will whip your butt into shape pretty quick, but FitPerez reader Janis wrote Alex Brenes to ask:

Hello Mr Brenes,

What are the fitness components in boxing?

According to Alex:

Janis, that's and easy one,all of them, Strenght (hit harder), speed (hit and move faster), endurance (hit harder, faster and move longer), agility (don't get hit and hit some body), coordination (don't be clumsy so you can do it right), nutrition (provide your body the fuel needed to perfom to the maximum). Done right like we do at DeLaBBC, boxing is one of the most complete ways to get in the best shape of your life!

Lance Armstrong Accused Of Using Performance-Enhancing Drugs (Again)!

Lance Armstrong accused of doping

Say it isn't so!

A former teammate of Lance Armstrong's told 60 Minutes on Thursday night he used performance-enhancing drugs WITH the seven-time Tour de France winner to cheat in cycling races, including the Tour!

According to Tyler Hamilton, Lance took a blood-booster called EPO in the 1999 Tour and before the race in 2000 and 2001.

Hamilton told reporters:

"I saw (EPO) in his refrigerator. … I saw him inject it more than one time like we all did. Like I did, many, many times."

However, Lance Armstrong has NEVER failed a drug test (unlike Hamilton, who has been BANNED from racing for using performance-boosting drugs) and his lawyer, Mark Fabiani, is backing him up, saying:

"Hamilton is actively seeking to make money by writing a book, and now he has completely changed the story he has always told before so that he could get himself on 60 Minutes and increase his chances with publishers, but greed and a hunger for publicity cannot change the facts: Lance Armstrong is the most tested athlete in the history of sports: He has passed nearly 500 tests over twenty years of competition."

The drug Lance is accused of using boosts endurance by increasing the number of red blood cells in the body. Federal investigators are currently probing whether the iconic cyclist and his team engaged in systematic doping.

Honestly, we are really hoping this guy is just looking to make a buck by causing controversy because Lance Armstrong is one of the most inspirational athletes on the planet. He is a true testament to the human and athletic spirit that drives us toward success.

While everything this man is saying could be entirely true, we'll hold off on any judgement until some solid facts come out to support or deny these accusations.
