Default Re: over reaching

A rule my coach told me my first day in the gym was "If ur chin is in front of ur nuts, ur gonna be on ur knees." Reaching is when ur leaning instead of stepping as mentioned above. If u lean, ur off balance which is bad for so many reasons like if u even get touched ur either hittin the deck even though ur not hurt flyin across the ring lookin like u just got hit with a bomb. Second, if ur chin is forward, its exposed, u may not even get up if ya get hit. Third, the punch u just reached on leaves you out of position to be able to follow up. keep the weight in back, the chin above or behind ur nuts n use ur feet to move
