One thing that I haven't seen mentioned but is VERY important IMO is to make sure your hands are wrapped!!! I can't see if you have them wrapped under the boxing gloves... You won't be doing any training at all with fractured/broken hands. But I can only assume that your MT coach isn't an idiot and your hands are wrapped.

Also knees are not just down and up, there is a forward motion to them too. They can be down and up but make sure you learn the forward motion as well.

I'm new too man but my coach has been helping a lot. One good tip he gave me was to let my leg swing like a bat when I'm trying to kick the bag. You want to hit it with your shin NOT your foot. Anyways I'll let the pros talk to you. Later and good luck! Start running and eating right! Good Protein is your friend!

Hey how many pounds was that bag?

Also, I got a question for whoever: are the heavier, taller bags better than the smaller, lighter bags? I'm getting a 100 pound bag, but am also thinking about an 60 pound bag. Which one would be better?

First off, mad props to be open to criticism via an internet forum. I actually spent the time to read everyone's critique on this forum, and I have to say I am more and more impressed with the group that is on this forum.

Anyway, much of the things have been covered. I know its unconventional, but when I first started training (going back aways now, bear with me) I was taught to hit a bag with a towel under my chin, it gets you in a good habit of keeping your chin down. But don't stop there, like many others said keep your hands up. As someone previously put, you are a 'counters' dream, I know I got a little excited watching you.


You seem to have the rest of the critique done by others. As far as dieting/exercise I would say get a jump rope, a light kettebell, and some good running shoes. I can't give you a definite answer on how long/duration/etc etc since I don't know you, nor do you know me (or care). Shadow boxing with resistance tubing is key as aforementioned.

Finally, check out some Crossfit work outs, some you may be able to do in your gym, others you may not. But its a good full body workout, and you if you do it properly you should vomit the first few times....its a good feeling.


And finally, if you really want to lean up, I would stay away from doing isolation exercises, keep it mixed up don't focus on one-two body parts a day. Check out some of the training logs for some ideas. Good luck, keep us updated, and have fun!

t3hClassic has a little shameless behaviour in the past
this video was a joke.....right? or were you serious... did is pretty funny... i say you should be the next dave chappelle

If it was for real... anyone else thought that was way too slow? by the time someone finished running a mile, you would still be on your same punch.. actually don't call it a punch. It looked like one of those bear smacks..
