Its time to open my own training thread. As I dont want to flood the forum with any new post or video regarding my progress all will be posted in this thread. I started boxing in 10/2017, fractured my rib after 2 weeks and started again in 01/2018 with 2x/week fitnessboxing and strenght training. My main coaches back then were Precision Boxing, Fran Sands videos @ YT & Sherdog. This went on until april when I realized that I moved like a slug on valium (especially after watching @YoungCashMoney videos ) and this would have to be dealt with. Also training on your own gets to a point were its of little use without feedback. April until June I stopped boxing completely and focused on running with cardio / speed / intervall training combined with track & field movement drills. I can now run up to 25km and have a 5km @ 20min. /[email protected]5.40min. Boxing now feels different. Lost 10kg. No strenght training anymore. Since end of June I am a member of a boxing gym with 2x/week training and 1x/week 3min sparring with a coach. Recording in training is not possible and until now, none of my rare sparring sessions with colleagues I was allowed to record let alone upload on the Internet. Have to respect that but hope this changes. At the moment I dont have any sparring partners but will look to find some come september. regarding the video: I recorded it now while being on vacation. Its not strict shadowboxing. I always start slow to get control and do a mix of drills (tile exercise), movement and shadow boxing. I also like to try things out that may work or may not . Focus is on staying relaxed and light on the feet. Had a little bit trouble inverting right foot with running shoes. Its probably pretty boring to watch. Gets faster midway through. Combo 12521 f.e. At 9.50min. Sparring with my coaches is as one sided as it gets ( as expected) and they are a great help. As I have a job and family its not that possible to focus on boxing, especially as I found a renewed interest with running. But these two seem to complement each other. My mistakes: not always ending a combo with a jab to get distance. In sparring my guard is high but I tend to put it sideways to my head and not in front which makes me vulnerable to jabs. My hooks suck. I have an ok slow left hook but as soon as I fasten it up it gets bad most of the time. With left I prefer kind of a shovel hook at the moment. leaning forward freezing for a split second after throwing a combo instead of moving on. my main focus at the moment are movement drills. Its the reason why I feel more at home now in boxing and this is something I do on my own. Drills are from boxing , track&field and TMA from back in my youth. In my experience Its not really possible to learn correct punching only from videos, too many possible errors (I love the tile execise from @Sinister , helped a lot in grounding my right), but movement is of great benefit. goals: first one was starting boxing. Done. Next one is to get to be a stick & move boxer with focus on defense and ability to end fights. If my progress is satisfying I will try to get a fight in 2019. What do you think about a training camp / holiday in Thailand only boxing related? This may be a possibility in 2020 but I dont know how much sense this does make in a Muay Thai country. If yes which camp would you prefer for boxing and some holiday at the sea? Annother option may be United States but my guess is that this will be too expensive. criticism is always welcome.
