Quarantine at Home Boxing – The Fight Goes On!

Another Thursday – another at home boxing class.

Warm Up

3 Minute Rounds (if there is an “add” – do that at the minute marks)
Goal: Make sure the last move in your combo is not the punch – it is some sort of movement after the punch.

What I would really like: non-stop movement for 3 minutes. Little movements go a long way.

What I am working on (as should you): Mixing up how you hold your hands. Whip some punches out with loose hands until the snap at the end. Work to see if this helps your speed.

1) Jab/Cross/Hook
— Add Cross
— Add Hook
Focus on: mixing up tempo/moving with one of the punches)

2) Jab/Cross (Body)/L Hook/Cross (Head)
— Add Slip R/Duck L
— Add L Hook
Focus on: really extending that first cross while really turning those hips)

3) Left Hand Only
Focus on: keeping that right hand high/glued to your face. Pick your shots. Play with timing.

4) Non-stop punches
Focus on: endurance. Mind over matter.

5) Right Hand Only
Focus on: keeping that left hand high/glued to your face. Work on small steps each direction after the combos)

6) Jab/Jab/Cross
— Add Right Hook
— Add Jab
Focus on: getting that first jab back fast. Work on jab to the body too.

7) Cross/Hook/Cross
— Add Duck R
— Add R Uppercut
Focus on: fast ducks and setting up that killer right uppercut.

8) Jab/Cross/Jab/Cross
— Add Step L/L Hook
— Add Step R/ R Uppercut
Focus on: small steps to get out of the center. You only need to move a little more than width of a boxing glove. Just get your head out of the center.

Thursday Boxing Workout (Bag)

One of my favorites today is what I would call a counting workout. I call out a combo – and the number of times to throw it and then we hit the bag on my count. Set the clock for 40 minutes and no breaks. Depending on your pace you may need to add or remove some of the following:

Right-handed person: Front arm = left arm
Left-handed person: Back arm = right arm

Jab = 1
Cross = 2
Front arm hook = 3
Back arm hook = 4
Front arm uppercut = 5
Back arm uppercut = 6

  1. 50: 1 (single jab)
  2. 50: 2 (single cross)
  3. 40: 1-2 (jab/cross)
  4. 30: 1-2-3 (jab/cross/hook)
