Lesson 1: Breathe.
Lesson 2: Keep a low base and your feet moving.
Lesson 3: Stay tight, stay crisp, look down the pipe with every punch you throw.

Past that I will have to start charging.

With practice on different, correct techniques, roping is an excellent way to gain cardio. Builds and tones muscles in the arms and legs also.

THIS^^^^^^

As a HS wrestler I learned the rope and it helped immensley with my stand up agility. Boxers need great footwork to defend and deliver blows. Start out basic and get good at that, then try some twists and crosses (I never could!) for variety.

As far as footwork goes, roping really helped me to learn my center, my base at which my body operated from. Taught me when and where to shift weight when I wanted to step or pivot, where my feet needed to be so that my foundation was good whenever i wanted to roll the upper body.

Roping... clock in, punch your bell timer and get to work!

Rocky is for pros! Learn to by watching anyone live or on youtube...



Then practice, practice, PRACTICE!! Sorry, I was excited..!

One more thing, I like the ropes that have a bit of heft to the center. It helps maintain speed and momentum as opposed to a lighter type rope. My favorite type was the one covered 80% in 2" plastic "sleeves" around the rope, kind of like hairbeads. Anyway, a heavier rope will be easier I think.
