Vasyl “Hi tech” Lomachenko (6-1 4 KO’s) is one of the most decorated amateurs in Boxing history. Holding an amateur record of 396-1 and 2 Olympic gold medals. Not to mention he avenged his 1 amateur loss and has won 2 titles in 2 separate weight classes as a pro. Today we take a quick look at how he became so damn good and skillful. It begins from the bottom and has a lot to do with his training methods. As seen in the video below Vasyl Lomachenko has some unconventional training methods that he has mastered throughout the years.
Vasyl Lomachenko has been raised with Boxing in his blood instilled by his father and trainer Anatoly Lomachenko. A journey they began together long ago and haven’t stopped since. As a young child, Lomachenko was taught and able to do different variations of hand stands. Using his palms or fists he would stand on his 2 hands, and walk a few meters to build strength and balance. Today you can see him using these methods in training camp, walking back and forth across the ring on his hands. In addition to that, he can do pushups while doing a handstand which is extremely difficult to do.
