Correct striking technique – Here we will run you through and more importantly PERFECT the following punches – Jab, Cross, Hook & Uppercut. This will help you get the most effective response out of every strike without the risk of any injury. From here we can then build up speed and power. This will lead onto some more advanced striking – Body Shot, Slipping, Rolling, Blocking, Elbows, Fists, Knees, Kicking, Cutting Angles and so on.
Footwork – As boxing is a full-bodied workout we will be including a lot of movement into the routine. Weight distribution is an important factor when it comes to throwing a punch as well as avoiding one. Punching power is first generated through the balls of your feet and then up through the hips. We will teach you to stay light on your feet and move around as though you’re battling it out in a ring. As a legend once said “Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Bee”.
Basic boxing combinations – Although I say basic, we’ll cater this to your current skill level. These combinations can get pretty challenging.
Functional movement assessment – Here we will be assessing your range of movement through a variety of functional exercises. From here we can determine what areas require work and take note of any physical limitations.
Correct exercising techniques – Let’s be honest, learning the biomechanics of the human body and acknowledging whether you’re hitting the right muscle group or not when performing a simple exercise can be a bit more than a walk in the park. Unfortunately, poor lifting or any exercising technique in fact is the number one culprit when it comes to old mate injury.
Muscular strength & conditioning – Our main objective here is to target every muscle group in the human body and build up that stable foundation that will allow you to perform at your peak. We will be incorporating functional movements throughout our boxing routines with the use of kettlebells, dumbbells, medicine balls, TRX suspension trainer, resistance bands along with body weight activities. We can target this towards more sports specific goals or for just day-to-day living.
