    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Interesting training today- Padwork

    The phrase padwork is kind of a misnomer, instead of hitting the pads the coach was holding a medicine ball. It was pretty cool, I worked alot of uppercut combiniations and working in close, which seemed easier with the medicine ball. I did that for 2 rounds then 2 more of with the handpads. Has anyone else done this kind of medicine ball work?

    wouldnt you need one ************ of a grip to hold onto a medicine ball while someone is hitting it?

    sounds like those boxing bags you ge tthat are like only a foot and a half or so high, great for working uppercuts into your training which is hard to do on a regular heavybag. although i prefer partnerwork to flying solo

    It was one of those light medicine balls, he was holding it with his whole body and forearms for the hooks and uppercuts, but most importantly I hit like a girl, a little girl.

    I saw Manu training one of our fighters like this last week. It looked pretty interesting. It also looked like more of a workout for Manu than the guy hitting the ball.

    Never thought of that.... Hmmmm... the implications are coming to me now....

    Drill 1.
    Two people with bag gloves, one 10 lb medicine ball, uppercuts, body shots, teeps then person A throws it at person B hard in the chest.
    Person B catches and is now the holder, repeat at random intervals.

    Drill 2. Same as before except holder yells sprawl randomly, person B sprawls, immediately rolls over to back where A slams ball on B's stomach, B throws ball back, repeat ten times, B scrambles back to the feet and continue until switch...

    Sound intersting here in front of the computer, of course, it could be lame as **** too.

    I hate drills where you have to throw the medicine ball back and forth. I keep dropping the damn ball and getting hit in the face.

    I actually like them but can't find anybody else who does. My favorite medicine ball drill though is actually "knee on the medicine ball". I just keep switching from knee to knee while spinning around it. It has nothing to do with boxing but more with BJJ and balance. At least, it was my favorite until I started using a basketball for the same purpose. B-balls are more sneaky and move faster. They are also funnier when you loose your balance and land on your ass or face. Bringing it back aound to the face again....

    Sounds shitty... I may need to try it. I hate burpees but there good for you. That's what grandma always told me growing up anyway. "Do your burpees or you get's no desert." Or maybe that was popeye... and it was about spinach?
