As the Latvian lightweight boxing champion, Andre is working toward a goal of becoming the European lightweight boxing champion. He discusses with STN’s Dan Sykes the benefits of deep relaxation for athletes.
“For boxers, it’s really important to relax. I think it’s maybe 50% of the victory – you need to be relaxed and on the other side you need to be controlled.
It is a very hard massage. It’s maybe (something) we don’t understand it now but in the future, we are relaxing and it will help us to do more boxing rounds with that.”
