    Would the universal athletic position work for boxing? Just at an angle to make yourself a smaller target? This position is used in every sport to maximize speed and strength. Wouldn’t you want this in boxing as well?

    well some guys fought out of a crouch but shifting weight from one side to another is how you get leverage on your punches where the universal athletic position seems more for forward explosive movement.

    Ok. Thank you so much. I compared to universal athletic, but not necessarily crouching. Not literally it but Here’s a video. I just used the athletic stance quote because this reminded me of my times as a cornerback. Watch this video and tell me what you think. Is the guygiving good advice? The stance I’m describing looks exactly like that one.
