Re: sore back and neck from sparring?any suggestions?
That could come from too many straight jabs. Start dipping, bobbing and weaving. The dip is effective after a bob or weave. Will keep your opponent guessing. When a punch pushes your neck back, it causes your spine pain. You can also sit at the edge of the ring with your neck hanging forward and lift it up. Then lie on your side and bring it up and of course switch. That is a good way to strengthen your neck.
