I'm goin to be sparring a slightly taller guy with a better reach and better condition. I know the fundamentals pretty good and I have been working the heavy bag pretty good and skipping rope. Here's my routine:
1) 2x3Min Rounds Shadow Boxing
2) 2x3Min Rounds Skipping Rope
3) 3x10 Burpees
4) 3x3Min Rounds Heavy Bag--Free Style
5) 8x30Sec Rounds Heavy Bag--Fast Power Shots
6) 10x15Sec Rounds Heavy Bag--Punch Outs(Hard Right and Left without stopping)
7) 50 Sit-ups
60 Push ups(Varous Hand Placements)
Day Two: Same as the first except I go a little lighter in each exercise. So I have a heavy day then a light day.
But I am looking forward to doing some regular sparring with some of my coworkers who also like boxing and I could use a little advice from the experienced sparrers in this group.
I'm a southpaw and will be going against some guys who are orthys but who are a little taller with better reaches and pretty powerfultoo. I figure the best strategy is for me to stay outside of their lead foot, move to my right, jab and jab some more, jab then left cross then right hook to the body then circle out to the right.
But I am also wondering if it is ever useful for a southpaw like myself to move to my left as long as I can stay outside of his big left cross?
Thx, Great Site
