Footwork awful...

If you're trying to get a good workout that's great. You should look in your area for some boxing gyms if you're serious, www.gymfinder.com is a goldmine.

Just a couple areas where I can see a need for improvement.

Your hands appear to drop to about chest level during combinations. This is a minute problem at this point. But in the future it could become a bad one.

Another thing is that when you throw a hook, you drop the hooking arm to your hip. This is okay I guess, I used to have the same problem, but it was because I wasn't turning my hand over to strike with my first knuckles, or properly turning my hip.

Also, footwork. The camera was too high to be able to see that aspect, however, the bit that I could see of your movement suggested that you were to static. Work on stepping in when you go to throw punches, and using that inward movement to add power, and bursting back outward at an angle after striking.

Something that I also saw. Head movement. Reactive head movement (head movement reacting to a punch) is difficult to train alone on a bag. But general head movement, moving at the hips and shoulders making the head a difficult target, is a good way to condition the muscle memory and mind. Performing this at the same time as footwork and evasive movement is a great help.

On the plus side. Punching speed was hella fast man. Very quick hands, even with these imperfections slowing them down, they were pretty damn fast.

Overall it was alright, you leave your hands down for too long after your cross/combos and your flurries need some serious improvement. Far too wild.

It also seems like you wear out your breath too fast and take small breaks instead of finding a good rhythm. It's already been said that you have bad footwork.

That's just my opinion.

ill take the advice and try to improve for my next video... im no boxer.. Im just starting out, Ive always thought I had quick hands though. Hopefully I can improve with some footwork and tighter punching.

There's a lot of advice going on here but it's all going to be very hard to approach without taking a few classes or finding a good coach.


For a speed drill though I like to set a metronome up and drill the combos to the beat, turn it up 20% and continue, then another 20% etc, then back down, as a pyramid drill.
