Part 2 – Foot drill routine & shadow boxing

In this video, Matt, Jaye, and Ellis help us focus on two super important foot drills – pushing in and pushing off, and pivoting. We cannot stress enough how important footwork is in boxing – and it’s also just a great form of exercise. Pushing off and pushing in is essential in terms of getting in and out of range. Pivoting is a great way of changing your angle and switching things up – remember: your opponent will take advantage if your movement becomes predictable.
