Boxing Training Tips: How To Ingrain Skill


I always start young kids or any age student on defensive drills such as parrying here before getting in the ring.
It teaches technique in a controlled setting, no sloppy over excited punches that program garbage technique in the cns.
Keep in mind, all these movements are creating new wiring in the brain, engrams to put it correctly, which are stored movement patterns in the brain.

The students can learn defensive skills in a non threatening controlled setting, creating skill, solid clean motor engrams.
Then when it comes time to spar they aren’t freaked out with punches coming at them. And they will have a skill set developed both offensively and defensively to display in clean sparring sessions. Preventing sparring from looking like sloppy wild tough man type sparring.
Every movement in the gym is being stored in the CNS, the repetitions must be good as it takes over 7000 repetitions to correct a faulty pattern and instill a new motor engram, which as we know it is great looking crisp technique.
This is just how we do it in our gym, I’m not saying I’m right I’m explaining the rationale on why we do what we do and what we are doing exactly does.

Boxing Training Advice: Explosive Power Training Tips.

Here are a couple of tips for you when training to develop explosive speed and power.

When training to develop explosive speed and power you MUST execute quality NOT quantity when targeting the explosive high threshold type IIB muscle fibers.

Meaning.. Each rep should be fast, intense. If it’s a half ass effort, Terminate it. Keep in mind FULL recovery between sets will allow pure quality of execution (intention) hence recruiting the high threshold fibers as the nervous system takes 5-7 times longer to recover than cellular tissue so it will be fresh to allow that focused and 100% intensity speed of movement you need to develop crippling power.
