The Bas Rutten Boxing Workouts are a great way to do some functional fitness, especially during lockdown when the gyms are shut.
Bas shouts out the combinations and you punch away, according to what combinations he shouts out. Pretty simple really and a decent home workout.
I’ve been doing 2 rounds per day during lockdown – plus yoga and kettlebells.
But wait? What are the combinations, and what are all these numbers he is shouting out?
Assuming you are standing in orthodox stance – with your left leg in front and right leg back
Jab or “1”
– a straight punch with your left hand
“2” – Jab, Cross Combination
Left straight punch, then a right straight punch
“3” or Jab, Cross, Hook Combination
Straight left punch, straight right punch, left hook
“4” or Jab, Cross, Hook, Uppercut
This can be done also as Jab, Cross, Hook, Cross
But to mix it up, I like to use an uppercut as the final punch
I hope that helps to explain it all anyway.
1 – jab
2 – jab, cross
3 – jab, cross, hook
4 – jab, cross, hook, cross
jab, cross, hook, uppercut
Throwing a hook is tricky to begin with, please see this video for an explanation:
