Take it to the Next Level
If you have the equipment available, hang an old speed bag full of corn from the ceiling and allow it to start swinging back and forth. Set up in the middle of its pendulum and dodge the bag as it swings by your head while keeping your foot in place. This will mimic dodging a punch. Reset your balance in the middle then as the bag swings back, time your dodge without looking to see when the bag will swing back
If its your first time completing this type of workout, you will likely feel tightness in your upper back and shoulders. To minimize this discomfort make sure you stretch and have a proper cool down.
