" When lifes annoyannces or frustrating situations build up, you can feel stressed or experience low grade anger.More high-energy forms of exercise like boxing can also provide and effective release of all these negative emotions, turning these otherwise potentially unhealthy emotions into positive motivation for future increase of health and well-being."
Many people assume that boxing training only works the entire upper body and not the lower body.This is far from true.Providing that boxing training is done properly the majority of muscles in the body will get a workout.
Skipping, Scissor shuffles, lunges, sit-ups, push-ups, dips, and squats can all be incorporated in a persons bocing for fitness session to have more specific focus on various muscle groups.
All these exercises are very basic and require minimal equipment, but are very effective when working the lower body as well as providing a great cardio workout.
With the upper body being the primary focus of the workout you can be sure that every muscle will be targeted during a 30 minute boxing routine.Punching bag or some focus pads is only part of the package when it comes to boxing training. There are many body weight exercises that can be included in punching routines which not only provides variety to your workout but they are also very challenging.
Boxing for fitness is not just about using combinations that a fighter may use in the ring or techniques that they may use in sparring.Boxing for fitness is about using principles of professional boxing training and adapting them to the principles of functional fitness training so that all training requirements are met and all muscles in the body are utilised.
As there is no load or resistance on the muscles boxing training is not ideal for someone wanting to bulk build their body. Hypertrophy is not a by-product of boxing for fitness where as muscular and cardiovascular endurance is.This is generally due to the large amount of continuous bodyweight movement required during a properly conducted session.
As boxing in its purest form is not a muscle building workout then other forms of fitness training need to be incorporated to be able to get the results that generic resistance training usually provides.
Body weight exercises ( Calisthenics ) that can be utilized in boxing for fitness are:-
Push-ups ( Wide Grip and Narrow Grip )
Squats ( Standing or Jump )
Lunges ( Standing or Jump or Alternate)
Crunches / Sit-ups
Step Ups ( on Bench or Box )
Prone Holds ( Hovers )
Burpee ( Single repitition push-up incorporated with a single repitition squat jump )
Anaerobic Vs Aerobic...
Research into boxing for fitness over the last 10 to 15 years has shown that a standard 45-60 minute session on average will be 60% anaerobic and 40% aerobic.
Depending on the type of session you are doing, this average of 60:40
can be alttered either way to suit you and your needs and capabilities.
What makes boxing training so physically demanding....
As you punch and make the impact with an object ( focus pads /punching bag ) you are exerting a force away from your centre of gravity.This is intended to be at maximum speed and power ( that your body is capable of).Which basically means more energy is required to execute the movement.Quite simply this is due to the increased load and resistance put through your body as it impacts the target.
More energy used = more calories consumed
When performing a exercise where by you are required to generate force into a external objectour breathing rhythm tends to change and people will have that feeling of being puffed out.
Why you ask? Because boxing training can be related to the same principles as high repitition resistance training where the muscle is under constant load.( through pushing,pulling,lifting,throwing ) for a given amount of time or repititions.
