There is no substitute for actual fencing, and training with a coach watching and overseeing you. I am not challenging that. But anyone have any good routines or exercises for some extra training at home? I'm not looking for cross training or strength/conditioning, but perhaps exercises or routines that help hone fencing skills and will show returns on the piste or in classes. Things you can do in your home gym (or garage or wherever) you can slip in daily for that extra little help. For example, my last coach had me hang a tennis ball from a string. And practice point/lunge. Slow at first, and gradually speed it up. It helped with accuracy and blade control while pounding into muscle memory a proper lunge. Anyone else recommend something to do at home to help compliment training?
