I love kickboxing and boxing, nothing gets your blood pumping more than the conditioning involved in the Martial Arts. Exercise will help to you to preform better at work, sleep better, look and feel a whole lot younger. This week I focused on technique with the focus mitts....working in partners for 3 -5 min rounds. One partner will preform the combination, whilst the other is holding the pads.
One thing to note, good pad holding will build good technique....most times when I hold the pads, I am working up just as much of a sweat as the slugger hitting them. When holding the pads, this is your opportunity to focus on defensive movement, view the angles and give the striker a clear line to the target. DO NOT hold the pads really far apart, like a two headed hydra....move with the pads by turning the torso and giving the striker good angles. Work slowly with the movements and depending on where the combination is intended to go simulate this with the appropriate levels with the focus mitts...body, head, kidneys, liver, legs....at the same time keeping the focus pad holder away from getting accidentally pounded.
Each punch is assigned to a number 1 = Jab, 2 = Cross, 3 = Hook (left or right depending on the flow of the combination), 4 = Uppercut. Warm up with about 5 - 10 of skipping (1 - 2 songs), stretch.
Combinations To Train (Break it down in three parts) each partner has 5 min on mitts, and 5 min striking. In between rounds - 10 Burpees - 20 Push Ups - 20 Bicycle Crunches - 10 Jump Squats.
This should last about an hour, and help to build the fundimentals....its always best to do this in a class setting. If your interested in doing this work out with me feel free to contact me for training dates and locations.
About 10 years ago I fell in love with the sweet science of boxing...something about firing off punches on the focus mitts always seemed to calm me down and help to focus.
Boxing is an incredible workout, and can put you in the best shape of your life. Much like any sport you will never perfect the sport you only get better to appreciate what it is and the beauty behind the mechanics of the workout.
Check out this video clip of Manny Pacquiao (#1 Pound for Pound Boxer in the World) and Freddy Roach (world class boxing trainer) do a mitt session. From the untrained eye it may look violet....and don't get me wrong it is when a couple guys are slugging it out. But from a fitness point of view there is so much happening (agility, focus, conditioning, footwork).
