  • Training at home

    What kind of training can I do at home by myself. I want to continue to refine what I am learning but I am not sure what to do. Do I need a heavy bag?? Any suggestions...


    Thanks

    Hi boucheed. I had a similar post called Exercises for Cheap People. Basically like the kind of stuff you can do at home without any equipment. Check it out as well in the Techniques forum I think.

        I have followed the advice of many others on this board and purchased the Bas Rutten workout CDs.

        They have great workouts for heavy bag & shadow boxing routines and a great all around workouts.

        They can be purchased at http://www.basrutten.tv/mm5/merchant...tegory_Code=DV

        or I purchased mine on eBay for a little less than that.

        Hope that helps you out.
        Tim

          Tim's right. The Bas CD's kick ass. You won't find anyone on this board who will have one bad thing to say about them.

                    You can do stuff like slower punches in to the mirror to see if you're telegraphing or "winding up", or doing a *very* slow punch into a will and then make your body continue the punch. The former takes relaxation and the latter builds your ability to do a total body punch.

                    Vary your regular workout by changing directions as if multiple attackers are coming in from different directions. Focus on footwork, angular movement, and directional changes. Might prevent a sprained or broken ankle down the road.

                    Start from a laying down position and get up and punch. Then try to economize the motions it takes you to do that. Then change the start position.

                    If you have a tall chest of drawers, pull out one at your stomach height. 1-2 punch high, 1-2 punch into the gut/opening.

                    Write out all the material for your level and go over it each week.

                    Put things into smooth combinations. If you're higher level, have several activities in each drill that cover high/low, movement/direction change, etc. Nothing shows stilted technique as flowing them together. :)

                    Yeah, this has been on my mind. Was out for two weeks with a bad cold, went back one day, and now down with the flu. UGH!
