Awesome work today Boxing II Revenge fighters, but one question...
WHERE WERE THE REST OF YOU???
Every week I'll be posting what I call "At-Home Practice" -- bits and pieces of our workout and extensions of it. It's up to you with whether or not you want to do with it but my recommendation is to give it a try, especially if you struggled during class on it.
For this week's At-Home Practice for Boxing II Revenge Fighters, I put together a short little 5 round boxing circuit. One round is 3 minutes and after each round, give yourself a 30-40 second break.
PRO TIP: download a simple boxing round timer on your phone.

TODAY'S TRAINING TIPS:
1. Keep your elbows in! Stand right beside a wall and then throw a punch, Your elbow is either going to smack the wall or it's not. It if does, it's because you raise your elbows too much. You have no core protection and it'll just exhaust your energy with keeping them raised up as such.
2. Learn to move in more than just a forward direction.
The only thing that really stands still in boxing is a heavy bag and even that swings.
3. Keep one hand by your face at all times!
