As you can see, Tyson took literally no off days. We wouldn’t recommend this for anyone. You definitely want to have at least 1-2 days of rest, especially when you train as vigorously as Tyson did. Your body only grows and recuperates when it rests. Tyson had some of the best genetics and training staff around. He was able to train with such short rest because he needed to consistently burn the proper amount of calories and condition himself as best as possible. What works for Tyson probably won’t work for you so we’d recommend rest days.
Before jogging in the morning, he did a lot of stretching followed by 10 jumps onto boxes and 10 bursts of sprints. Then he would do his jog. At 12 PM, he sparred. At 3 PM, he focused on mitt work and heavy bag work inside the ring. He warmed up for his ring work with light exercises such as skipping, shadow boxing or speed ball. At 5 PM, Tyson did 10 quick circuits, each circuit consisting of: 200 sit-ups, then 25-40 dips, then 50 press-ups, then 25-40 dips, then 50 shrugs, followed by 10 mins of neck work on the floor. Tyson said that the shrugs are what built his shoulders up to help him punch given his short arms.
“The Baddest Man on the Planet” didn’t follow a bodybuilder routine. Instead, he did floor exercises and natural exercises. Tyson explained that his punching power came from heavy bag work.
