Boxing Circuit

This is a BoxAerobics pattern from (pattern 3705)

This is a circuit class I teach every so often in my Boxaerobics:

I divide the room into a Boxing side and Martial Arts side

Station 1: Jab-Jab-Hook

I set up signs(or balloons for more fun) at head and chest level on mirrors. Students are to aim for the targets with jabs and finish off with a strong hook. *The balloons need to be those big punchy ones.

Station 2:1-2 Punch (Jab-Cross Punch)

Students do the jab-cross punch facing the mirror working a speed comfortable for them. Have them focus on form. *Remember to pivot off that back foot when throwing that cross punch. Don't forget to change sides.

Station 3: Ducks with Upper Cuts

Set up a line (tubing,or rope) chest high: I use the step risers to help set up a ducking line. I pile 2 stacks of risers chest height about 10 feet apart. I then wrap our tubing around risers.(you gotta use a few tubes.) Students duck the line and come up on one side of line with a upper cut. Then they do the same to other side. The students move down the line this way: ducking the line and upper cuts on side of line.

Station 4: Shadow Boxing

(We don't have any equipment yet.) I have students wear boxing gloves (I don't have bags, but I have gloves...go figure) and pratice their punches. Let them explore different combos. Again, focus on form.

Station 5: Kick/Knee Up

Students kick then bring knee up in a defense move. This can be done facing mirror: front kick-side knee(as if you're going to do a roundhouse kick). Or they can turn to the side: side kick-side knee. Don't forget to change legs.

Station 6: Knee-Knee-Kick (Tae Bo)

Students face mirror. They bring right knee across body twice. Then they end with right side kick.(Make that side kick strong). Don't forget to change legs.

Station 7: Squat-Kick

Students can face mirror or side facing. Start in squat and kick toward mirror. This is great leg work. Have students go slow.

Station 8: Shadow Kicking

Students can pratice any kicks or combos they want. Have students focus on form.

I use Power Productions' Sports Conditioning Tape. It has 2 minute intervals and the music is pumping! This is a great class because you can spend more time actually get students to focus on form. You actually teach more than do. Sometimes, I have students come in middle of room between stations and we do little boxing/kicking combos intervals

Hope ya enjoy it. The club I teach at, doesn't have much equipment (but soon, we'll get some) so this circuit works really well. But you can modify and use equipment in stations.
