Squat on August
ALL power comes from the ground, nowhere else! Because your legs are connected to the ground, they are most responsible for pushing off the ground to generate maximum power throughout your body. Your legs also happen to be the biggest muscles in your body, which is why all proper boxing punches are typically thrown with the legs pivoting and rotating. If you look carefully at many of the most dynamic and complete punchers in boxing history, you will see that they have great legs more often than great arms or big chests. Look very carefully at the typical boxer’s body and you won’t find over-developed pecs or huge triceps. Marcos Maidana, Manny Pacquiao, Thomas Hearns, Julian Jackson, and Felix Trinidad are some names of guys that immediately come to mind. These guys did not have big upper-bodies but they carried HUGE power in their fists. “Squat on August” is a challenge designed to push you to the next level in addition to helping you with your stability and punching. The foundation is key to any solid structure and anyone taking a cardio kings fitness boxing class will tell you the same. In order to “become royalty” your base must be solid!
