One of the guys at the gym said “we have to train on Boxing day”….so that’s exactly what we did. There’s nothing like getting back into the gym after a few days off. Surprisingly I wasn’t that slow considering all of the Christmas food I disgustingly ate over the past few days.
There was a group of four of us who trained; three who are all getting ready for fights. I should have a fight coming up for sure in February at our club show, but my coach wants to get something even sooner, possibly in January. (Yikes!!- I better get cracking.) Two of the other boxers are getting ready for Nationals which is very fast approaching. In two weeks the seniors will fight and in 6 weeks the juniors.
We did some sparring (around 6 rounds each) and finished with a very effective drill focusing on body punches while the opponent was retreating.
