Michelle Sim, boxing coach and creator of Move with Mich, takes the intimidation factor out of boxing as she introduced the ins and outs during a beginner-level class. And let’s be real: There’s no better feeling than mastering those combinations and being able to bob, weave, and jab like a pro. But if you’re ready to move beyond the basics and give yourself even more of a challenge, you’re in luck because her advanced boxing workout has officially arrived.
In the latest episode of Good Moves, Sim ups the energy—and the skill!—in her super-hard 20-minute advanced boxing workout. Instead of taking the time to go through the how-tos of the movements, this entire workout is spent doing high-energy combinations that will work your brain just as much as your body. “It’s all about focusing on combinations, and speed, and agility,” she says. Take her first combo, for instance, which goes a little something like this: jab, cross, drop, cross, hook, cross. And that’s just within the first five minutes.
By the end of the workout, you’ll have paired two tough combos together into an even speedier, even harder, and even longer combination that will make you feel like you’re boxing in the ring. On top of that, there’s also a floor work section with push-up to twists, mountain climbers, speed shoot throughs, and plank hops. Not to mention plenty of burpees, squats, and lunges throughout in order to keep your heart rate up and put your endurance to the test.
Considering there are designated rest breaks during the advanced boxing workout—which you’ll most definitely need in order to 1) wipe your sweat and 2) catch your breath—you know it’s going to be good.
