The Combat Academy team has been busy behind the scenes working on some exiting new features. Combat Go is our next generation training app targeting a broader selection of sports and athletes. It will offer an updated mobile interface and new tools such as a customizable boxing workout generator and interval training features. Both our apps will share the same underlying data. If you have a Combat Academy account you can also use that on Combat Go, and vice-versa. See our landing page for more details on what we’ve got planned.
We are not quite ready to launch the Combat Go app, but at this time we are excited to introduce our boxing timer and combo coach, a web app that can be accessed freely by anyone without creating a user profile.
How to Get Started with the Combo Coach
Whether you are an experienced boxer or just starting out, Combat Go can help you learn the basics, improve your skills and get a great workout.
Our new web app allows you to:
- Automatically generate workouts for shadow boxing and bag/pad work.
- Practice punches only or add other moves to mix up your workout.
- Set intensity, complexity and duration based on your skill level and training goals.
- Preview your workout before getting started and get visual and audible prompts to guide your progress.
If you have been boxing for a while you should be able to jump in and start using our web app to generate workouts right away. Read our basic instruction for using the app here and tap the button above to launch the app.
If you are quite new to boxing, we suggest you read our guide “Getting Started with Boxing in Combat Go” first.
Why Shadow Boxing?
Shadow boxing is a great way to practice form, technique, movement and balance for novice and expert boxers alike. It can be a full and effective workout in its own right or be used as a warm-up for other types of training. It is time and space efficient – you can work out anywhere you have a little room to move around; gym, office, bedroom, hotel room or outside.
The best place to shadow box, however, is in front of a mirror. When you are looking at yourself performing your combinations, you will be able to notice various flaws and nuances to your movements that while subtle, can be difficult to detect and correct. Another great aid is to record your session on video to review once completed.
By using the Combat Go combo coach you can focus and your techniques and movements, letting the app generate and call out the combos to execute. Give it a try today!
