Coach Chris Leben:
What up, guys? Here’s some cool techniques you can incorporate into your shadow boxing, at least until we all get back in the gym. This is my favorite punch, I call it my shotgun two. It’s going to be off that fake backhand, so I’m going to go backhand shotgun two. Next one backhand fake across to the hook, backhand shotgun two, backhand fake across the hook. When you’re throwing that you want them to see it. So you want to pull a bad punch. You want to flare that elbow out to get a reaction. Boom. Boom. Mixing it up.

Here’s another one guys in the routine. Fake T, throw the cross. Next one. Fake fake kick reset. Cross, cross, knee break here. One more time. Cross, cross kick. Simple combo you can start working into your shadow boxing at home, at least until we get back into the gym.
