Best Known For

Andre Berto is known for his boxing skills and achievements in the ring. Berto gained popularity when he first won the WBC Welterweight title in 2008 against Miguel Angel Rodriguez with a TKO in the 7th round. After that, he retained the WBC Welterweight title for 3 more years, and lost it in April 2011.

Fighting Style

Berto’s fighting style can be described with only one word, EXPLOSIVE! His hand and feet quickness are some of the greatest in this era. Knowing the level of athleticism Andre possess, it’s no wonder why most of his fights are finishing with his opponents down on the floor. Andre has a great combination of hook and uppercut punches which makes him a deadly fighter.

First Film

First TV Show

Andre first appeared in the TV series Golden Boy Boxing (2011) as himself as a ringside guest.

Personal Trainer

Berto is one of the most explosives and probably the quickest boxer in his weight class. In order to have speed and power like Andre does, one boxer should always do both, skill training and weightlifting training. That was the case with Berto’’s improvement too. He was incorporating two different types of training and was exercising 6 and sometimes even 7 days a week.

Below, we bring you a workout program, very similar to the one Berto used for his preparation. Obviously his workout routine keeps changing, but the following routine is definitely worth a shot.

Saturday – Weightlifting (Power Lifts)

On Saturday, there is a power lift circuit that should be done for 5 consecutive rounds of Power Clean, Thruster and Jerk, each for 10 repetitions per round. The rest between rounds should be zero to no more than 30 seconds. The key is to perform each repetition in an explosive motion in order to work the fast twitch fiber muscles.

  1. Power Clean – 10 reps
  2. Thruster – 10 reps
  3. Jerk – 10 reps 

**5 ROUNDS

 

Sunday – REST DAY

There’s not much, we can speak about when it comes to Andre’s diet. He definitely eats clean and healthy food. Every professional boxer should be aware of the importance of eating food that is rich in protein. Also, avoiding processed and high-fat foods such as hamburgers, French fries, pizza and refined oils has a huge impact on both – decrease in performance and slowed muscle building process.
