Importance of body punching:

Opens up the target - Body punches are a fantastic way to open your opponent up. By landing a body punch your opponent will anticipate punches coming to the body as well as head. Therefore the guard will be more likely to drop.

Slow the opponent down - The opponent will have more to think about now, also the wind will be taken out of the sails and these are much harder to recover from (if you are hit with a good body punch you stay hit for the rest of the fight! - Ask people that have sparred/fought Bulla!)

Gains the opponents respect - The opponent will feel they are in with a good boxer if the body is targeted and may even encourage them to go into their shell. Plus a well schooled judge will give credit to a boxer that is targeting the body effectively as this shows good planning and maturity, equally 'head hunting' can become predicable and limit you.

If you have a tall opponent dropping under their offence will enable you to evade their attacks whilst also setting up your own, make them miss..make them pay. Plus it's these ones that they don't see that will score.

Boxers:
We may be closed boxers however some of the greatest boxers trained in their own time, not in the gym. The pavements are still open for runs and you can shadow box and skip at home along with all the conditioning exercises we complete in circuits.

Work on mastering those skills - in our last session we were working on setting up our attacks with feints and taking out predictability. Aim to master some of these skills.

Things to integrate into sessions:

Skill focus:

Shadow boxing
4 X 2 minute rounds (45 seconds break):
Give yourself a focus for these e.g. First 2 rounds focus on foot defenses and feints to set up attack, straight punches only.
Rounds 3 & 4: Busy with an explosive lead hand and phases of attack switching the attack from head to body with both long and short range punches, incorporating feints and foot defenses.

3 X 1 minute rounds:
Round 1. High work rate, top gear, phases and double attacks
Round 2. Combination punching - 3's and 4's changing the angle between each attack
Round 3. Power punches

Conditioning:

1 round of 4 minutes skipping: 20 seconds doubles/knees up and 10 seconds active rest e.g. single knee raise/left leg only/opposite boxing stance and move. Repeat the above for 4 minutes.

Circuit:
Press ups (+push up variations e.g. Plyometric)
V-sit ups (+Abdominal exercises)
Hyper extensions + dorsal raises
Pull ups
Squat jumps (Jumping variations)
- Focus on explosive movements to prepare the muscles for punching and endurance to continue with good performance throughout the rounds and contest.

Well done team #DABCFamily
