Smile My 7am Warm Up (video)

Here is me warming up at 7am. As you notice the bag is higher, heavier, and harder. I was working on my technique and just trying to wake up.

Nice work I guess, I don't know...listen if you're trying to find a boyfriend, just use myspace, it's much easier.

I don't even know what you mean, I'm sorry but I am trying my best. If I had an instructor this would be easy and if it were that easy then everyone would be doing it.

Make me a video and show me what I am doing wrong.

I am trying my best to keep my hands up and snapping them back to my face area to protect myself.

It's not easy, 2 weeks teach myself. Just trying to understand what people say.

Yeah, seriously this is way too confusing. What do you even mean?!


When you're throwing the body shots Ra (the ones lower on the bag) you have to keep the arm you're not throwing still cocked.

It looks like you may be squaring up here and there, try not to do that.

Also you're throwing primarily jab/cross combinations. I would add in more hooks and uppercuts, as well as having combinations written down, or easy to remember, that you can build on.

I'd incorporate working the slip and bob-and-weave in at intervals.

Cornbread is right, you have got to keep your hand that isn't punching right up next to your head. Keep it low like that in the ring and you'll get lit up.

You may also want to do a few drills with just your hand wraps on to condition your knuckles a little.

You may also want to try sucking slightly less.

I'm sorry, let me try to clear that up.

In your video you drop your *punching hand* really low,to your HIP at times, then throw a body shot with it.
Where I train, that gets you punched in the face, hard.

** Specifically look at 2:12-2:17 of the video those two body shots you toss, you are going to eat a big fat hook every time if you drop your hands to throw the shots**

I have always found it better if you are going to switch levels during a combination like that to actually bend your knees and dip down (think deep knee bends) like you are working a bob and weave thing, keeping your jaw protected by both the non punching hand and the punching arm's shoulder.

You throw the punch the exact same as if you were standing straight up normally, the only difference comes in the fact that you are dipped down and still protected.

I hope that helps clear that up. It makes sense in my head when I write it out, but I train it that way. Did anyone else get what I was tryin to say?
