Boxing as exercise?
Boxing is a sport that is both ancient and modern. Evidence exists of boxing being practiced for entertainment by the Greeks thousands of years ago, but the sport as it is known today has been around for over one hundred years. Many people think of boxing as a sport where you exclusively use your arms, but it is much more complex and requires use of the entire body, which is what makes it such a great workout.
How does boxing fit into a workout program?
When part of a fitness program, boxing takes on a different nature altogether. While there is some focus on facing an opponent and sparring one-on-one, the primary objective of a boxing fitness program is to improve your body and your reflexes. In this case, you will learn how boxing takes advantage of the entire human body. While you will have to use your arms, your legs are extremely important in your stance and pacing. Therefore, you will have to understand the basics of footwork.
You will also need to train your core and stay in tune with your abdomen for practicing dodges as well as punches. It should be noted that you will still be put up against a sparring partner, and you will need to defend yourself against punches and throw some as well. These sparring sessions are completely safe, and safety equipment will be provided to you. The sessions are guided, which allows you some in-depth practice and teaching. At the end of a sparring session, you will have made weeks of progress and will further understand how boxing acts as an art.
How do I start?
If you have ever wanted to learn how to improve your agility and footwork, you should consider boxing. This fitness program will have you dropping pounds in no time with intense training methods.
