Consider Boxing As A Full Body Workout!
Boxing has become ever more increasingly popular as a full body workout for both men and women. All areas of the body get targeted, for example:
Chest, Shoulders and Arms
Punching better known as (Jabbing in boxing) is a great way to give your tricep muscles a workout (which can be a problem area for women). Your chest and shoulders, also gain a massive workout every time you punch!
Upper and Lower Back
The increase in lower back pain within our community and directly with our clients is high, and sadly increasing. Boxing for fitness is one of the few activities you can do with your clients that certainly defines, strengthens and tones your whole back. Movement patterns pertinent to boxing such as twisting, turning and rotating the upper body while pivoting on your feet guarantees your lower back gets strengthened throughout the workout.
Butt and Legs
Boxing for fitness is a multi compound full leg workout. Each time you duck and weave you work your inner thighs (abductors muscles) quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves. Also in ducking and weaving you give your butt muscles (gluteals) a good workout.
Your abdominal muscles are continuously being activated. The deep abdominal muscle (transverse) is being contracted isometrically while your superficial muscles rectus abdominus along with your internal and external obliques are working isotonically to create core stabalisation while your torso is twisting, ducking and weaving.
If you are bored with your current cardio-vascular fitness program and looking for something different, then seriously try boxing! It's so versatile, it can be done indoors or out, and it's not affected by seasonal changes or every day weather patterns, (wind, rain or sun). This way of training will teach you self defence techniques while keeping you fit, strong and looking great!
