Default Roger Mayweather's Method Of Padwork

Does anyone know the method behind Floyds uncles style of padwork he does? What does it actually do to improve your boxing? because you cant exactly stand in front of someone and throw punches like that without getting hit back and ive always been taught to keep moving when im in the boxing ring!

I always thought it was to hone the reflexes and train reactions.

Roger must have his own stamina, he does an awful lot of work.

FOCUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its trains him to focus through out the whole round and whole bout. doing pads that style if you lose focus for 1 seconds you fuk up the drill..

I would guess it works on muscle memory quite a bit as well. Also, you're always ready to punch during the drill so posture is also important.

This style of pad work is great for increasing a coaches hand speed and stamina.

Personally, I think it's pure garbage. The pad dance is not what makes Floyd. Floyd is an especially gifted fighter, and he's been doing this since he was a baby. I think those pad drills are just for show. I doubt doing those drills would increase anyone's boxing skill much better than more traditional pad work.

I used to think it was purely for show as well however, I've changed my sentiment. It builds counters and reactions instead of an entire memorized routine. You get hit with the right hand? Shoulder roll, uppercut, left hook, right cross. Get hit with the hook? Block the hook, give a hook back, right cross, left hook. Etc. There are preset counters but Floyd has to be given something to react to. That's where Roger does a great deal of his work. He might hit him with the right pad to evoke a shoulder roll, or Roger might tell him to fade (sway) a split second before he does it so that Floyd has to adjust.

It's just as much work for the padman because he is providing stimuli and then having Floyd counter appropriately. However, just because the pad holder is doing a lot of work and thinking doesn't mean that the person hitting the pads is doing less. And it just happens to look flashy because it is difficult to do let alone with the speed and consistency with which Floyd executes it. Make no mistake about it, it is based on reaction within the pocket.

It must help with his conditioning too, he puts out a lot of work in those routines. Is he running 3 minute rounds of that padwork?

I'd love to learn it.

It's used to train hand/eye coordination. Not every workout with a bag is used to improve boxing skill. The speed bag is a tool used for hand/eye coordination. Who punches someone the same way they hit the speed bag?

Roger Mayweather is highly over rated as a trainer. Who else has he trained?

Sorry, but it's a load of BS. As with any training there has to be progression. Maywether has clearly been doing that same choreographed shit for years. It may look cool or whatever but wheres the progression?
