Just recently I’ve taken to reintroducing some boxing into my bootcamps. I threw this one at them the other week as a fun way to get back into it.
Boxing In 3’s
Time: 60 minutes
Equipment: Boxing gloves, Boxing pads, Skipping ropes
Cover boxing techniques like jabs, crosses, shuffles, stance, hooks and uppercuts.
Straight Up Drills
Pair up, spend 2 minutes on each drill with 30 seconds rest. Have campers swap roles after every second round. Focus on encouraging great technique on these drills.
- Round 1: jab, jab, right cross
- Round 2: jab, cross, left hook
- Swap roles and repeat rounds 1 and 2. Swap back.
- Round 3: jab, jab, right upper
- Round 4: jab, cross, right upper
- Swap roles and repeat rounds 3 and 4.
Now get clients into groups of three. They must go through the following six rounds, one round at a time. Clients should rotate through roles, one boxes, one holds pads and one skips. For the strength rounds (3 and 5) the pad holding station is just a wait and rest station.
- 100 high straight punches
- 150 uppers
- 15 push ups
- 50 hooks
- 15 squat jumps
- 200 straight punches
Stretch it out. Let me know how you guys go!
