Tips on Throwing an Uppercut from BNB Level 2 Academy

AUTHOR: Keven Watson, Box ‘N Burn Co-Owner & Founder

Our first Level 2 Box ‘N Burn Academy is this Sunday, February 19th.  We have plenty of new content that we will be sharing with all the attendees, including how to throw an uppercut!

Here’s a little teaser on how to throw a mechanically sound uppercut – always remembering to recoil the hand back to the face, as shown in this photo.

An uppercut, similar to the hook, is a short to mid-range punch which is used “inside the pocket”. We will use the mid-range uppercut thrown from the power hand, or back hand. An uppercut can be used to break through the hands of a tight guard, or to counter an opponent who is over reaching and leaning inwards, with their weight on the front foot.

Similar to a hook, it is one of the more difficult punches to master. 

The mechanics of a mid-range uppercut are very similar to the mechanics of a cross.

HOW:
1. Throw the uppercut from the chin, driving...

A Closer Look At Box ‘n’ Burn Academy’s Unique Philosophy

Author:  Seth Gibson of Divined Movement Theory. Seth went from a fitness enthusiast to a fitness professional by attending both Onnit and Box’N’Burn Academies. 

 

When I decided to pursue a career in the fitness industry a little over two years ago, the first part of my plan was to take some time and get a real education before pursuing internships and eventually, paid work.

I have some informal experience coaching and writing training and nutrition plans for friends, as well, I had been a part owner of small MMA gym in Silicon Valley, but had never received any formal instruction or education in coaching and personal training.

Experienced coaches provide online education

Thankfully, in this age of internet and social media, it’s easier than ever for knowledgeable and experienced coaches to provide online educational opportunities that rival even the most well-established formal institutions. This technology allows coaches to...

Changer! Onnit & Box ‘n Burn Academies Changed My Life!

Author: Zane Roebuck, Personal Trainer

With the help of two outstanding companies and a lot of excellent people, 2016 was a unique and powerful learning experience for me. Box ‘N Burn Academy and Onnit Academy have made a bigger impact on my life than I ever thought they could.

It began in January with an 18 hour drive down to Austin with two of my close friends and co workers, TJ and Jimmy. I was excited to learn new techniques and meet some new people of course, but I didn’t expect it to completely change the way I think and move forever.

I met people at the Onnit Academy who altered my mindset, changed my views, and had a profound impact on my life. Everyone was so kind and willing to help or listen to others. So as I continued to communicate with the Onnit Academy after the foundations cert, I heard about the Box ‘N Burn Academy and knew I had to get on board.

Fast forward to August. TJ, Jimmy, and I traveled again, this time to Santa Monica to get Box...

5 Fast Facts: Apples! They’ll make you a better Boxer

An apple a day keeps the doctor away right?

An apple a day will also help you improve your boxing!

When it comes to pre-workout snacks, people always ask me what’s the best thing to eat.

Whatever your goal; sports performance, fat loss, or better health, apples are top of my pre-workout snack list. When I used to fight I’d have an apple within an hour before I fought.

Why?

 1. Endurance and Energy Extender

Apples will boost your endurance before a workout.  They contain certain anti-oxidants that aid endurance by making oxygen available to the lungs.

When we’re tired we huff n’ puff for air in the lungs, when that air is steadily available to us, we can be more explosive and fight for longer.

What else do we need endurance for? Keeping those hands up high, the more tired we get, the harder it is to keep that defense high and hands loaded ready to go. Anytime I fought, I always felt so...

9 Tips On How To Get Motivated from a Personal Trainer

Motivation: the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.

Motivation. This may sound strange coming from someone who makes a living pushing myself and others to their limit, but I would say the key to staying motivated is to Hold Yourself Back/Pace Yourself! Bear in mind it’s ok to be de-motivated sometimes, you will not be motivated 100% of the time, but if you feel you need more motivation / productivity day to day, then I hope this helps. When I start a workout,  create a new goal, or work on something new, inside I am rarin’ to go, fired up and excited to get stuck in and give everything. I am full of excitement, and my enthusiasm knows no boundaries. Nor does my sense of self-limitation. I think I can do anything. It’s not long before I learn again that I do have limitations, this is where a lot of people’s enthusiasm begins to wane, a prime example being falling off a diet routine or training plan or slipping back to bad...

What is Functional Fitness & How Does Boxing Training Help?

Written by and originally posted by Glenn Holmes on GlennHolmes.net

In my opinion boxing has been one the most sidelined fitness trends ever. It never completely faded out of sight, but has never took the world by storm either, until now. Boxing used to be considered a non-mainstream fitness exercise, but that has started to change

Boxing for everyone

New boxing franchises are stepping away from the old-school environment and atmosphere of traditional boxing facilities and instead are creating a non-intimidating atmosphere and facility that welcomes almost everyone. The Kardashians and Justin Bieber are involved, and I personally train high-profile musicians and celebrities who swear by it, and it’s about time, because boxing is by far one of the most demanding sports there is, both physically and mentally, and as recently voted in an ESPN poll ‘the hardest sport of all’.

Boxing workouts that are real, unique, challenging, and fun

At Box ’N Burn Gym we have...
