It's a great feeling to land a solid punch to the body but what about being on the receiving end of it?
In this drill, we block the pad holders L/R hook to the body with our elbows and answer back with an up elbow.
Same drill but I'm looking for a difference in the timing. In the first half, you block and then reply with the same side up elbow. In the 2nd half, you go right into your same side up elbow as soon as you feel the pad hit you. This way you'll deliver a counter.
Try it out and let me know how it worked out for you.
