It has been awhile since we focused on upper body agility moves. We will see how fast our heart rates can get up by just moving our arms! Also remember our face vs. body target training. We are coming back to that in a whole new way on our dominant side and our non-dominant. Whenever we switch up our punching arms, it feels awkward and less coordinated but that is okay! We are changing things up, requiring our brains to make new body connections. Let’s embrace the awkward together!
Remember to watch the introduction video prior to this class if you do not have experience with boxing to familiarize yourself with the names and forms of the punches. This class will include all the different forms of punches we will use in the subsequent videos with new agility exercises to bring some variety.
Our boxing classes won't include any special equipment, so don't worry if you don't have gloves or bags at home!
Steph and Claire are certified in Rock Steady Boxing and we will be using that format for our classes. We start with a warm up, then we will do the high intensity portion which is a mixture of boxing combinations mixed in with agility work, then we will focus on core strength and finally complete a cool down!
Boxing is a little different than our other classes, in that we won't be mirroring you for the most part. For boxing, your stance is based on which is your dominant side. Your stance is with non-dominant side forward and certain punches are done more with your dominant/non-dominant side, some punches are done with both arms. Steph with be demonstrating with her non-dominant side forward, and for many of you who are right handed, you won't be mirroring her, but you will do what she does!
Remember, safety first! Modify activities as needed! Use support for anything in standing as needed, use the chair to get up and down from the ground, take your time and skip or modify activities if you need it!
-Light Hand Weights (1-3lbs) or something similar from around the house!
-A great attitude

Hope your legs are ready for today! We are doing four different versions of squats. When we walk, reach, push, squat or any normal daily movements we often move in multiple planes of motion without realizing it. During our squats, we are going to feel what it’s like to perform this...
Today we are working on our basic punches and learning some new combinations. We will also test out some new agility moves. We will see how high our heart rates can get by extending our reaches a little further, dropping our legs a little lower and twisting a lot deeper.
We spend our days moving forward, reaching forward, working straight on; it’s time we get moving sideways. Make sure you are confident in your balance and steps today. We will be shuffling through our agility intervals on purpose today.
Remember to watch the introduction video p...
