[flickr video=6981098165 secret=ca6faa7179 w=400 h=225] The guy who looks like Mr. Clean is Ken, a pal I've been working out with for years. He surprised me last night by setting up his camera at our semi-regular Tuesday-night focus mitt session. (We both teach boxing classes on Wednesday nights, so Tuesdays are a good opportunity for us to get some rounds in.)
Everyone likes to work mitts: You're developing your speed, stamina, balance and punching power all at the same time, and you feel like you're accomplishing something. A good partner will keep you motivated by swatting you on the ear or clipping your forehead if you get lazy and let your hands drop, a feature no heavy bag can offer.
You can see the complete set here. Apparently flickr only allows you to upload the first 90 seconds of any video, so you only get that much of each round.
