Hey guys, just after some feedback (good and bad) on a round on the heavy bag.
Brief training history so you know where I am at…
Trained muay thai for a bit over 12 months (and a LITTLE bit of boxing), had two fights. Then had six months off all training while I was backpacking. Came back and went to a boxing gym (as it was 45 minutes closer to my house) for about 7-8 months. The last five months I have been living abroad in Canada so no training except the last 3 months I have hit the bag once or twice a week, so no trainer or even training partner.
With that in mind, I know I am rusty and my work rate is down because apart from snowboarding I am doing nothing else training wise so fitness is pretty low.
Just after some feedback for things I may have not noticed, as well as the things I am doing right, as this is the first time ever watching myself back.
Things I have noticed - my lead hand drops pretty early on, I do bring it back when I am aware of it, and the bag is coming toward me but for the most part it is down. I also don’t always pivot on my lead hook, I don’t always get on my toes when I kick, my footwork coming back from the switch kick is a bit sloppy as are my combos, I am not thrusting enough when kneeing.
That said, quite a bit of that I feel (hope haha) is due to still not being very sharp through lack of practice.
I was hoping for feedback from the boxing guys as well, I know the footwork and head movement obvs isn’t there, but things like my general striking, am I getting my hands back quick enough etc
