11 total rounds, alternating 4 minutes of chess with
2 minutes of boxing, with 1 minute periods between to change gear.

You can even follow the blog of a chess boxer in training:

Chess Boxing.... kinda, sorta, maybe Crossfit-ish? :-)

I would rather do Ghost Recon (for xbox) and NHB, but I kinda get the whole chess boxing thing.
