My problem.

I train with trainer in boxing and im weird cause i didnt tell em all that time we were training that if he could train me southpaw. I think its because he never fought that way but all this time ive been training as a righty instead of a soutpaw. I feel really embarrased. Should i train southpaw and if so can u please direct me to videos showing for a soutpaw.

It depends on how good you are fighting out of orthodox. I think you should really get good at one and them try to move on to the other. When you switch to southpaw you have to re-learn your whole defense. Punches and kicks come at different angles and you have to get used to that. And its not that easy to just switch and think that you will automatically be able to make the switch. So I would try and get great at fighting out of orthodox then try and switch to southpaw.

Now I can fight out of both, but thats because I actually started boxing out of southpaw even though I am right handed. So I learned that and then went to learn my more natural orthodox stance. Learning both is great, but IMO you need to be great at one before moving to the other because of how different things are.

Don' feel embarresed, just shadow box out of southpaw and get used to throwing punches out of it. And then have some one just throw very, very light punches at you so you can see how the punches come at you. That way you can work on your defense, because as a southpaw that is pretty important because how of different punches come at you. Southpaw is ver effective if you know what you are doing, but just practice like I said and you will slowly get the hang of it. It just takes time. Feel free to ask any other questions.

I don't like to breathe out of my nose when I train or fight becuase if you get hit in the nose during the fight and your nose breaks then you have to just breathe out your mouth and you aren't used to that it can affect how you fight. So I just breathe out my mouth with a clinched jaw.

Working on a heavybag is good just make sure that you have good technique so that you don't form bad habits.

Hit the speed bag and double ended bag alot. The speed bag of course helps your hand speed and the double ended bag will hep with your reactions.

Pushups and situps are good, but when you do situps try doing them with a medicine ball. Hold the medicine ball and just twist side to side or do a situp and as you come up throw the medicine ball against the wall and then catch it. Then you can hold the medicine ball over your head with both hands and bend to either side to work your your obliques.

If you can get some resistance bands to help your punching speed and power.

What weight gloves do you train with?

Ok if you could show me a picture of a resistance band.
I used to train with 16 oz cause u know it makes supposely your hands quicker cause its heavier but i m training with 12 oz gloves. Man the thing that i like is that the adrenaline kicks in and it feels good.
