BOXING 101 : Turning Over Your Punches



Boxers are taught when throwing punches to rotate there fists inward just before impact... This is a very important part of proper punching technique, here are few reasons why.


1. Wrist and elbow protection: Turning your fist over places your wrist in a position that is able to endure more force and prevents the hyperextension of your elbow. This will Allow you to hit harder without injuring your elbow or wrist.

Boxing Stance Fundamentals


This month at The Sweat Science we are going to be focusing on boxing stance fundamentals.

Here are a couple reasons why it's a good idea to fully develop your boxing stance and some of the benefits you will notice when you do.

A proper boxing stance will......

- Give you power in each hand but still allow you to efficiently defend yourself from counter punches

- Give you good range with both hands while not making you vulnerable by reaching with your punches, forcing you off balance

- Allow you to throw a variety of punches from a balanced position without leaving you exposed

- Give you the ability to switch between offensive and defensive movement at any given time without getting tripped up or falling off balance

The Sweat Science featured in The Calgary Herald


Calgarians know that winter can be a real drag. Between scraping snow off your car in -20 weather, dealing with unpredictable cold snaps, and trudging through icy blizzards, the winter months seem to last an eternity here in Cow Town. Fortunately, The Calgary Herald recently came to the rescue with their guide to "winterizing" yourself with a variety of activities - including recommending visiting the Sweat Science Boxing Studio!

According to the Calgary Herald:

Dustin Sutley knows a thing or two about throwing a punch; he knocked out his first four professional opponents. Now he’s applying his knowledge and experience to whipping Calgarians into shape. When it opens later this year, the Sweat Science, his modern take on an “Ali era” facility, will have two training areas: the heavy-bag studio, where the 30-person Hit-Fit classes will be held, and the Ringside Studio for smaller classes and private sessions.

In the meantime, why not beat the winter blues and warm up with our one our 50-min classes. Book your bag today.
