Georges Carpentier

Posted on Tuesday, December 30th, 2014 by John Wood

Georges Carpentier was a talented French boxer who held several championship belts in various weight classes during a career that spanned 109 fights during the years of 1911 through 1926. One of the methods that Carpentier used to get himself into fighting shape was to go out into the forest, chop wood and then carry the logs. Sounds to me like a workout worth doing when preparing to fight for the world championship… one that certainly still stands up just as well today.
