Focus pads are a great training tool for improving skills in boxing and other martial arts sports. The hook and jab pads are designed to help distribute and absorb the impact of hard strikes during training sessions. A great way to work on technique and defence skills, see our selection of focus pads for your training needs.
There is no point having all the power and brute strength in the world if you are unable to successfully hit your target. With these focus mitts from UK Gym Equipment, you will be floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee.
Following sparring, working with focus mitts is the closest thing to a real fight that training can get. Focus pads are flat, hand-held pads that are around 12 inches in diameter, offering an ideal target whether you are preparing to step into the ring, octagon or simply working on your general fitness.
They are often made of firm foam and covered in leather. Use of focus pads allows a fighter to perfect their manoeuvres without having to step into the ring. They also allow for a trainer to assess your technique as you constantly move around, ducking and weaving as well as pulling the trigger on your offensive manoeuvres. This form of partner training will improve offensive and defensive skills and create sharper reflexes. The use of focus pads indirectly works the fighter’s footwork, challenging them to move their body into the correct position to retain balance as they work on their technique.
Focus pads are affordable and portable so you can train anywhere, increasing the challenge of your workout. Using focus pads requires a lot of energy, coordination, and mental focus, whether you’re improving your skills in boxing or martial arts, they make for a fun and challenging workout. Pad work can prepare you for sparring and with this training, you will be more prepared to throw the perfect punch.
If you are a competitive fighter, these focus pads can be packed in your bag and taken with you to the venue, where your trainer can use them to get you warmed up in the changing room before the big bout. For anyone who has ever purchased a big PPV fight, you always see shots of the competitors working with their trainers on the pads before walking out in front of a packed arena. This isn’t just for show but forms an important part of their routine.
You don’t have to be prepared to step in front of a man or woman who is willing to throw kicks and punches at you to benefit from the use of the focus mitts stocked on our website. If your ultimate goal is to improve on your fitness, then these will do just that. Ideal if you don’t enjoy shadow boxing or haven’t the room for a punching bag in your home gym, the focus mitts can be worn by your training partner and swapped around to complete a full workout.
