Workout Help #10

On Round 7, (combo #18),

You will do a lot of bobbing and weaving. Its not simply one bob and then you move right in with the hooks. No. Instead, you’ll stand just outside of range practicing your bobbing and weaving, and then, when you feel the time is right, move in for that Double left hook. Move out and practice your bobbing/weaving again, then move in for the double hook right. Take as much time as you need as you practice your body movement; that’s what this combo is for, so take advantage of it!

On Round 8, (combo #19),

The first shot is an uppercut.  Again, don’t even hit the bag. Have your hand go just in front of the bag and stop about face high. The angle of the heavy bag doesn’t lend itself well to uppercuts, that’s why I don’t impact the bag. you can if you want to, but I don’t think its good for your wrist due to the poor angle.  Plus, it trains you to control your uppercut, not just “let it fly”.

On Round 9, (combo #27),

Important:   Make sure you don’t telegraph this “front kick to groin”.   Keep your upper body non-telegraphing, like a duck paddling in the water.  (You don’t notice any movement of their lower half.   You do the same, if you don’t want your kick blocked.)

Immediately after the kick, fire that jab. You’ll probably need to step right to execute the “spinning rear elbow”, then spin back around for the left backfist. End with a sidekick. One day I’ll do a video for this one, since it can sound a bit tricky reading it.

On Round 10, (combo #37),

The left upward elbow is used in place of a block, or as a preemptive block as soon as you sense that right hook coming. Just step directly forward into the opponent and elbow him up and under his chin. Follow with a downward elbow on the opposite side, then a downward left elbow, and finish the combo as described.
