We had a guest MMA fighter come in today during Boxing at noon. The rest of the regular guys were here: John, Joey, Tony and Phil… 2 previously have fought MMA 1 is an future amateur boxer and 2 are here to train for fitness and whatever happens after that! Fair enough!
5 guys in class, all from 140-165…it was a good class!
We warmed up with 5 minutes of jumprope, then intervals with the rope, push ups, squats, burpees and mountain climbers for another 5.
Our guest wasn’t quite as conditioned as our American Boxing regulars but he hung in pretty good =)
With the ring crossed off, 2 boxers worked on changing levels and ring movement. While staying across the X rope from their partner (hard to describe but an awesome drill incorporating shadowboxing, head movement and foot work with a partner) they freely shadowboxed…when either person moved to the new quadrant, the other shifted as well in order to maintain face to face
1 person was doing light bag work
The 2 remaining worked offense and defense drills…
We worked 1- 2 rounds per station and 1 student moved on at a time (not in pairs)…
1 person was without mouthpiece so the remaining class was filled with double end bag work while the other boys did punching out drills from the corner.
We ended with some burpees and knee ups for abs and called it a day.
Good Class Guys.
