Have a Flat Tire You're Not Changing?

One morning I started driving down the road and immediately noticed that something was wrong with my car. It was making a loud banging noise as I drove down this busy street.

I thought, "Damn, I must have a flat tire." The bigger problem was that there was no shoulder on the road to pull over on this busy street. So I continued down the road and pulled into the nearest gas station to change my tire with the donut tire in my trunk.

Now imagine trying to take a road trip across the country to a championship fight that your scheduled to fight in.

You would never do that on four, three, two, or even one flat tire.

But you may actually be doing that right now and not even realize it.

To get to the championship fight the vehicle we're driving is our body.

In order to make sure we get there we must be driving on four good tires. the better these tires the smoother the ride.

Think of each of these tires as:

#1: Drinking Habits (Hydration) #2: Eating Habits (Nutrition)#3: Sleeping Habits (Rest + Recovery)#4: Training Habits (Conditioning, Technical Skills, Boxing IQ and Execution)

Many fighters are attempting to make this journey to the championship and don't ever stop top change the flat tires they are currently driving on.

If you have a flat in any of these areas, pull over and change the tire!

If you're not sure how to do that and need some guidance on changing any one of these tires book a FREE 15 minute call with me so we can change that flat tire champ! Click Here: https://api.leadconnectorhq.com/widget/booking/u4BncLK7TCZmFx39Fgu4

How To Throw An Explosive Jab! "Ram I Down His Throat Like a 2x4!"

"Ram that jab down his throat, like a 2x4!" Words of the late great Bill Sangster.

Those words ring in my ears every time I teach the jab.

Top tips:1. Start one full step away from your opponent.

2. Weight is slightly shifted to the rear leg.

3. Explode off the back leg, step in with the lead leg and, rotate clockwise as you throw your jab. (But really focus on generating the power from your rear leg as you explode in)

4. Keep your chin down and your rear handelbow and forearm next to your chest. Doing so will keep your straight 2 in better position to get there quicker, add leverage to the punch and hit your opponent right on the chin before he even realizes you threw a "Wicked 1-2" I call it this because when you land it right on your opponents chin it does wicked things to his body! Like turn out the electricity! Lights out baby!

Knockouts take the fight out of the judges hands!

This kind of explosive jab stops your opponents attack dead in his tracks.

As I mentioned it also sets up a "wicked 1-2" and as demonstrated in this video by @crusestewartboxing it can set up vicious double and triple left hooks!

Work on it and DM if you want to learn more about an upcoming online training camp focused on your technical development and strategy so that you can dominate your next opponent and move a step closer to being a Champion!

How To Box Against Taller Opponents

Learn 3 Tips for boxing against taller opponents.

#1 Understand Your True Punching Range: ”You’re only one step away from closing the gap with your jab.” As soon as you can touch 'em with the jab…go to work! Break that body down once you get inside.

# 2 Fight Behind a Feint and Double Jab: “Feint then double up (even triple up) the jab to get inside.” Keep your head moving on the way in…stay off the line.

#3 Pot shot: “Punch your opponent while he/she punches at you. moving your head…making them miss and making them pay!” This works especially well when he’s jabbing at you…slide up under his jab…”thread the jab with a looping overhand right.” I teach these techniques and more pot shots in this YouTube video: https://youtu.be/36sXLf0CLMs

Bonus:

Break that body down...stay on their chest...don't let 'em breathe...throw looping shots/overhand rights and viscous hooks on your way in…behind feint and double jab. Rip those uppercuts up the middle on the inside.

My brother (former National Champion) was 5'2 he broke down many taller fighters. You must be in tremendous condition to fight with this kind of relentless pressure...but know that it can be done.

Also try dancing outside getting taller guys to come to you...once they get close step to 'em and let those combinations fly rapid fire and thunder! Rain ‘em in champ!
