Basic Punch Combo

Boxing combinations are more than simply a series of punches.

Strategy is needed even for something as basic as swinging your arms around. First you’ll need punches to open up your opponent. Then you’ll need punches to take advantage of the openings.

But what punches should you be throwing?
And in what order?
And where do you aim them?

Learn how the basic boxing combination works. [Click to read more…]

Kettlebell Training for Boxing

SPECIAL GUEST POST FROM SPYRO – certified kettlebell instructor!

I have a task for you: just go ahead and search the Internet for the term ‘kettlebells’. Then check out some of the resulting pages and I dare you not to think that these ‘cannonballs with a handle’ (a new banality is born every minute…) are some god’s gift to humanity.

I bet you are going to read stuff promising you serious muscle building, core strengthening, fat ‘torching’ and tremendous conditioning. There are also going to be some references to old school Russian strongmen eating iron nails instead of spinach, the infamous Spetsnaz, and – who knows? – maybe even Rasputin and Stalin too!

Well, let me tell you a little secret: not everything about kettlebells is exactly as advertised! And who better than a kettlebells coach to make this clear? [Click to read more…]

Warm Up Your Jaw for Boxing

Here’s something I see the pros doing all the time but never any amateurs.

They warm up the jaw before they get in the ring. Loosening up the jaw will decrease the chance of injury to your jaw and even help you take punches better. It’s surprising to see that not many fighters do this!

It looks funny but here’s what you do: [Click to read more…]

Increase Your Fighting Endurance

9 years ago, I stepped into the ring for my first sparring match. It was a moment of excitement and pure adrenaline. A Rocky fantasy dream-come-true moment that took all the life out of me.

I was dead tired long before the final bell. I couldn’t walk straight because my feet were stuck in the mud and my legs felt like noodles. The 14oz gloves clung to my arms like a prisoner’s ball-and-chain. Spectators laughed when I couldn’t lift my leg to climb out of the ropes. My shirt dripped like I had gone swimming. I almost vomited when I bent over at the water fountain.

You wouldn’t know it from the way I looked…but I won.

I might have been a winner but I sure didn’t feel that one. And that’s the miracle of fatigue. Fatigue is a crippling handicap ruining your physical performance right when you need it most.

We’d all be better fighters if only we had more endurance! [Click to read more…]

Improve Fighting Reflexes

Fast reflexes are the standard of being a fighter. If anything, boxing is little more than a battle of reflexes. One man’s reflexes versus another’s.

Sure there’s skill, there’s strategy, strength, and all those other qualities. But without the reflexes to utilize those abilities, you won’t survive the round, let alone win the match.

Now there’s a difference between just being fast and having TRAINED fighting reflexes. It’s the difference between jerking your head back instinctively versus slipping and countering with a knockout punch.

It’s a long road to developing knockout counters as second nature. But I’ll show you how to get there. [Click to read more…]
