Some time ago I bought boxing equipment and invited a friend to box, it was fun, but one day because of work he started to come less and less. I haven't seen him in months so now I don't want to focus my training on boxing better and hitting harder, but on hardening my twink hands (I work in an office).I have a 44 pound punching bag (although I can put more padding in it to make it heavier).Some weights and a homemade makiwara (I spent a whole hour yesterday punching it and it felt pretty good. Now I feel like they're going to break)If you have any advice you can give me to help me harden my fists (or to hit harder) I would appreciate it.
>>175399Why don’t you go train for real with actual boxers instead of larping at home, self trooner
>>175402Nigga I live in a small town where hopefully there is a supermarket. It's like telling the nigger who's training to be a basketball player to go train with real basketball players when he's in the middle of a fucking jungle at war.It is better to do something than to do nothing
>>175404You’d be better off just getting on a strength routine then. Either that or look for what martial arts clubs ARE available.
>>175407This. Beggars can't be choosers. Stop daydreaming on the internet and start visiting gyms in your area. Get out there and train.
>>175404just drive somewhere
>>175399Punch and grab and twist into a bucket of sand every day, when it becomes too easy use rice, and when that becomes too easy switch to coarse gravel.
>>175404Correct>>175407This. With options as limited as OPs you gotta round out everything else you can.>>175408This is bullshit & ignores reality. There are millions of people too poor to justify spending that kind of money on martial arts and they shouldn't have to. >Training without sparring leaves you at a disadvantage compared to those who do.We all know this. I don't think anyone has argued against that concept with any sincerity.>Sparring is the only way to develop any skills.That's complete bullshit & wonder how many of the faggots selling that line are broke ass gym owners raging that they can't get hobbyists to sign up for a level of engagement they don't want. That's why so many martial arts gyms go under real fucking quick, because they don't have a curriculum & classes to meet a variety of commitment levels and their appeal is too narrowly focused on a particular type of student. Even fucking pros are bailing on sparring as a core training exercise.>B-b-but thats cause dey pros n git gud in the ringNo, they're bailing on it because they dont want to be physically crippled AND fucking retarded like so many of GOATs. Sparring is still 100% essential if you want to have hope of being competitive. But it isn't essential to improving at all & the cunts that say so sound like fucking shills to me.>>175399Got a friend willing to really lightly spar? Its more footwork & avoidance anyways, do slap sparring if you aren't too big of pussies.
>>175399Fist or bone hardening is a meme bro. It doesnt help it hurts. Bones are meant to be pliable. You're not gonna get any significant force multiplication out of it but you will be more likely to get a boxers fracture. Get some hand grippers, some serious ones like golden grip or captain of crush. Go on jewtube and see some of the exercises arm wrestlers do to beef up their arms. That greater stability in your wrist will be a way better enhancement of your total force than some janky ass traditional bullshido conditioning.
I will teach you the wayfirst you need to start with rice bucket exercisesreport back when you've acquired a bucket and 20lbs of rice
>>175399Most of being good at kickboxing is having good cardio. You can train a long-distance swimmer, an ultramarathoner, or even a savvy high-school football player to throw NASTY punches and kicks and be a good boxer in like 2-6 months of focused training. Someone who can't run a 5k, right now, without gassing out or walking, is never gonna box worth a shit until they can
>>175524Ironically everything you said is part of what I used to due for my hand conditioning
>>176194You only need to run 2.5km to be honest on a twice a day basis to get a really good stamina for boxing if you are not a pro, obviously once you run that many times you can easily run the 5km without practice.>>175524Knuckle push ups are solid though, just remember to train finger mobility to not get issues.
>>176449twice a week* rather.
