How to box – 15 boxing tips

Boxing mainly involves striking and defense. It might not sound very complicated, but training to knock out an opponent requires complications and a lot of sweating of those muscles. Here are some tips to aid in training, improve your stroke, and develop your defense.

• During training, the most important thing to remember is to drink plenty of water. All that sweat that comes out of your body dehydrates you and you won’t have the energy to exercise. So stay hydrated.

• Make friends and be humble. Feel free to ask anyone for boxing advice. The more you know about someone else’s technique, the more you will learn about their weaknesses.

• Don’t push yourself to the limit from day one. Start small and increase your capacity day by day. Make your training fun and worthwhile. Pushing yourself to the limit can make you quit quickly.

• Light and sharp stroke! Make your training more valuable by following these two simple rules. This will allow for more time in the bag and you will also have the energy to do so. Putting on a show breaking sweat and puffing and puffing will get you nowhere.

• To breathe! Most end up holding their breath! Remember to exhale while striking. Looking at your opponent can be motivating at most angles. Don’t look at the ground, but watch your opponent crumble before your eyes.

• Keep hitting and hitting whatever happens. Let your opponent know that you are not leaving. A boxing speed bag can help as you train to hit continuously. Use your whole body to your advantage. Throw your body at every hit, this way you don’t sacrifice any form of power.

• Use short hooks, short rights, and short uppercuts combined with long jabs. You gain more time and strength.

• Stay calm and throw hard and light combo punches. Always keep your opponent guessing, thinking, and wondering what your next move might be.

• Take the opportunity to land your punches on every part of the body. Keeping your head at bay, work on finding the rest of your body.

• Practice 3-5 combos for each opponent. Trying all the combo can be a waste of time and energy.

• During training if you are out of breath, calm down, inform your coach and take a breath.

• Always remember, hands up, elbows low, and nodding. You will find many boxers moving around the ring for no reason to get out of the fight. Focus on your opponent and attack at every opportunity you get avoiding your opponent’s blows at the same time. Wearing focus boxing gloves can help during training.

• Also do not wait for your opponent to finish his shot, if you have a gap, take the opportunity even if you do not land.

• While in the ring, there is no place to relax. Focus, focus and always focus. A small distraction could be the opportunity your opponent was waiting for.

• Above all, have fun. Make boxing a fun sport and get the most out of it while training. Be serious while training but don’t bore him.
