Beginners' boxing drills to master the JAB 🥊 provided by the amazing page @theboxinglocker
🧠 These are three of JAB drills for beginners. They are based around a few key skills that all beginners shoulder acquire; co-ordination, balance, position and maintaining distance.
📚 We are learning to move WITH the jab in each direction alongside the need to maintain distance between the feet, not dive in, control position and keep our weight centred.
🔂 These don’t have to be done fast to be effective but they should be done FREQUENTLY. 4x3 minute rounds on EACH drill with correct form and technique is a great warm up for other work and cements these fundamental foundations in to your mindset.
1️⃣ Jab on each forward step using the cones to track distance and repeat on each backward step. You can lay out as many cones as you want if you have more space.
2️⃣Jab on each step to the left making sure to move the left foot first and then reverse, jabbing on each step to the right and moving the right foot first. Keep facing forward throughout.
3️⃣ Step in with one jab, step out. Step in with a double jab (double step) and then double step out. Repeat. This is a great drill for varying attacking range and working on shutting down distance.
👣 Footwork is the key for beginners who want to progress fast. Invest time every single day in acquiring the basic fundamental foundations of footwork, improve the fluidity and smoothness then increase the speed and watch the rest of your skillset advance with it.
