Default Tricks of the trade

The tricks of the trade little things that are helpful, like someone mentioned how Bernard Hopkins as an amateur ran with a tennis ball under his chin to remind him to keep his chin down. Another if you have a fighter who is prone to nosebleeds, get A&D Ointment, and swab the fighters nostrils with it, A&D Ointment, is a diaper rash medication that you can get anywhere.
I know there has to be more do you know of any?

if you are working on leg movements only, put a ball or even news paper between your body and elbows to develop the habit of keeping elbows tight

Not so much a trick of the trade, but when I was starting out I would move backwards and forwards with a broom on the floor between my feet, so that I wouldn't cross them whilst moving.

In Philadelphia I saw a heavyweight with a rope tied to each foot so that he wouldn't spread his legs too far apart.

I think it works better with resistance band or bungee cord.

But yeah ... this is definitely a worthwhile idea mate.

Trainer Jack Blackburn had Joe Louis do nothing but work on punching a heavybag for several weeks in order to concentrate on shortening Louis' punches.

Never use rope when doing this, asking for an injury.

When Shadow Boxing, move forward throwing 2 jabs then stop where you are. From that position, lift your front foot and walk one step. If its not a natural movement, your feet are too wide.

ATG trainer Eddie Futch once said, there are three things that a fighter has to do when fighting.
-First, you have to have intention, think about what you intend to do.
-Second, you have to have position, position your body towards what you intend to do.
-third, is execution, execute all the things you intend to do after you have positioned your body."

a real old timers trick is to stop a bloody nose by putting a piece of carboard in your mouth and pushing it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue.

I have no idea why this works but it really does, effectively too
