Practice this move at home to get familiar with the moves before you unleash your boxing prowess in the gym . . . or in the ring!

  • With your left elbow against your ribs and your knuckles turned up, punch upward, as if you are punching someone in the jaw under the chin with an uppercut, trying to lift him off the ground.
  • Keeping your core tight, pull back as you bend your knees, sitting back on your heels.
  • Repeat with the other arm as you extend your legs.
  • Continue punching for one minute.
