It’s finally here for iOS, an app that simulates a boxing coach and calls out realistic, fast paced combinations. I keep things as legit as possible, so in this app I’ve included almost everything a fighter needs to integrate into his game i.e. all punches, slips, ducks, defense, and body shots. I have a lot more coming with this app where I’ll add a southpaw mode, a counter punching mode, and footwork workouts to the Pro version.
The boxing coach simulator calls out boxing techniques for you to execute, there are 4 modes and 3 intensity levels. This includes a Counter Punching Mode where all punch sequences start with a defensive technique. It includes a Southpaw Mode which ties in better with southpaw combos and counters. The app also gives you a total punch count at the end of the workout. The mode determines the minimum and maximum number of techniques in the combination. Amateur is 2-4 techniques, Pro level is 2-6, Titleist level is 3-7, and P4P is 4-8 techniques. The intensity will speed up or slow down the pace that combos are called out, with ‘Classic’ being a standard pace and ‘Pressure’ and ‘Hurricane’ being faster. In the app I also have an explanation video detailing the ins and outs of the app and how to use it.
The beauty of this app is that the combination sequences build upon themselves making it easier to work through a combination. For example the app will start: “1-2″, then instead of a fresh sequence it will add another technique to the sequence, let’s say “1-2-slip right”, then it will add another technique, let’s say “1-2-slip right-2″. After the sequence is complete it will repeat it once more. For those of you who have used my audio mp3 combinations series you’ll see that this follows the exact combo building method I employ.
Choose as many rounds as you like, adjust the round length, adjust the rest between rounds, and set a warning bell to tell you how many seconds are left in the round. Press ‘Start’ and get to work!
