On Sunday 6th March we delivered the first Boxing Science Education Workshop in Liverpool.
A group made up of boxers, coaches and personal trainers took part in the Foundation workshop, consisting of theoretical and practical workshops on movement, strength and fitness training for boxing.
A fantastic day with a great group, asking questions and eager to learn. We took them through the foundations that need to be set when introducing a boxer to sport science practices
Strength and Movement Training for Boxing
Science behind the punch
We shared the science behind what makes a forceful punch and the methods used to punch faster and harder
Movement training for boxing
Reviewing common movement and mobility issues a boxer may face based on observation and FMS testing. Also the benefits of movement training for boxing performance
Introducing a boxer to strength training
How to teach the foundational movements to kickstart a boxers strength program with useful and systematic progression and regression exercises
Movement Training Practical
Movement and mobility training session that can be coached and performed anywhere. Each exercise is coached and related to the common issues we find with boxers. Getting the Boxing Buy InLearn how each exercise can be related to successful boxing performance.
Physiological Testing for Boxing
Physiological Profile of Amateur Boxers
Review of Danny Wilson’s MSc study – learning a boxers physiological profile, their strengths and areas for improvement
Needs analysis of Boxing Performance
Learn how to link performance and physical characteristics to support your sport science program.
Develop your testing product
We share the steps we have taken to test boxers from junior amateurs to world champions.
Conditioning for Boxing
