Share of the Week: Don’t make this mistake throwing to the body!

I’m going to start using my @TrainWithIan Instagram account to recap lessons and share valuable information on boxing and running. In Friday’s class, we worked on a number of different topics (listed below). In this clip, I highlight a common mistake people make when throwing to the body.

Coach Ian’s Classes:

As you may know, I am currently donating my time to host virtual online boxing classes for the members of our 501c(3) non-profit boxing gym, Dreamland Boxing. As an active member of Dreamland, you will receive the materials and video recaps of each lesson through my website under the “Premium Drills” section.

Dreamland has also increased its outdoor capacity to 16 students per class, and lifted limits on how many classes you can sign up for in a week. Join me for a class on Fridays at 4:30PM!

Our practices this week featured the following:

  • How to properly throw to the body
  • How to properly get an angle to punch
  • Don’t end up in no-mans land!
  • Changing levels
  • How to hold mitts
  • Body weight circuits
  • And more!

You can view our full practices here.
