Punch up your work­outs with some moves and wis­dom from Every­bodyFights.

Men's Health (Singapore) - - FITNESS -

FIND YOUR STANCE

Get both hands up, shoul­ders re­laxed, chin down so it’s pro­tected by your fist. If you’re right-handed, get your right foot be­hind your left, but keep your weight evenly dis­trib­uted. You should be able to bounce back and forth be­tween feet eas­ily.

PUSH-PULL TO PUNCH

The most im­por­tant punch is the jab (a quick hit for­ward with your left hand if you’re a righty). The pow­er­ful righthanded cross fol­lows. To make that right im­pact­ful, don’t just punch. As you’re push­ing your right arm for­ward, ro­tate your right hip for­ward and ac­tively pull your left hand and left hip back. Fore­man uses the Air­dyne to teach this to new­com­ers; when you pull one bike arm, you must push the other.

PICK YOUR SPOTS

Not ev­ery punch is meant to be your hard­est, some­thing you’ll fig­ure out just min­utes into any Every­bodyFights class. Crush the bag with those right jabs, up­per­cuts, and crosses, but don’t be too ag­gres­sive with ev­ery punch, es­pe­cially the jab; it’ll leave you off-bal­ance and open to at­tack.
