3 EFFECTIVE BOXING TIPS

BREATH

Breathing is really important! Sometimes we don’t notice but improper breathing can make you get tired sooner and faster. When you are punching you need to take a breath before the punch or combination and as you begin to throw the punch breath out, then just repeat: breath and breath out, breath and breath out. Simple right? Don’t forget it.

Keeping this steps will help you increase not only your endurance but your punching power!

FOOTWORK

As boxers the hands are very important but we must not forget the feet. The movement of your feet will make you faster to move in or out of the way when a punch is coming or when you need to get near your opponent. The footwork is very important not only when your fighting or sparring but when your training and hitting the bag, you always need to be light and not put too much weight on your front foot because you could lose balance easily and go directly to the mat.

WORK ON YOUR COMBINATIONS

We all have our favorite combination but that doesn’t mean we only practice or do one combination. We need to work on different movements, combinations of not only 1 or 2 punches but three or more, doing combinations of three punches for example will have more power that if you only throw a single punch.
