  1. I'm watching pro boxer jump rope vids (which is like the pinnacle of jump rope porn for me LMAO), and Pacquiao is one of my FAVORITE boxers (along with Sugar Ray Leonard and Mike Tyson), but if you guys did a vid "How to jump rope like Pacquiao", it'd basically just be "jump regular bounce in a slight south paw stance, occasionally throw in some skip kicks, and continue again with south paw regular bounce." Okay, I'm SLIGHTLY exaggerating, he does do some other toe work, but he really doesn't get fancy AT ALL, which I find surprising. Check him out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QHUU2sL-zA He's definitely zen'd out and in the flow though!

  2. Boxers don't always have great physics. I'm a huge boxing enthusiast and the more I watch the more I realize that the Mayweather or Timothy Bradley kind of bodies are really an exception to the sport. Often times you get these knock out artists like GGG or Pacquiao who look either malnutritioned or soft around the waste and yet they are pure muscle and discipline.
    I'm not a huge UFC guy but I noticed that a lot of them seem to have a more commonly desired look when it comes to physic. The defined core and all that. I wonder why that is. I would say a guy like Nate Diaz is shaped more like a traditional boxer. I love these videos btw. My wife was blown away at how much fat I burned in 2 weeks from your video tutorials. She's gonna start jump roping too (she use to when she competed professionally as a skater).
    Keep up the good work guys!
