Why Boxing Is the Best Sport For All Around Fitness

Are you interested in learning boxing to emulate your favourite boxing hero? IF you are then you are likely to find that getting involved in this sport isn’t as easy as say getting involved in basketball or baseball. The reason for this being that this is a very extremely physical sport and if you don’t learn the art of this sport correctly there is a big risk of getting hurt when you enter the ring, even when practicing.

Certainly once you find a gym that will help you to master this particular sport it is important that you do the right sorts of workouts. These will not only help to improve the condition of your body but will prepare you better when you finally commence competing in this sport.

For those who have only just started boxing then in the beginning boxing in the ring for one round for 1 minute should be your goal. Then of course as your skills improve and your fitness levels become enhanced then you start doing more rounds and increasing from 1 to 2 then 3 minutes per round. Remember it is best not to rush your training as this could only increase the risk of you injuring yourself.

However if you are someone who has been boxing for a little while then your workouts should be made up of the following:

1 For the first three minutes you should do stretching and warming exercises such as jogging. Also during these three minutes you can if you wish do a little bit of shadow boxing.

2 After the first three minutes then for the next 12 minutes (bouts 2, 3 and 4) you should actually do some boxing. But during these 12 minutes you should spend your time focusing on improving the speed at which you travel around the ring. Plus also make sure that you have enough rest between each round. It is a good idea to rest for the same period of time you would expect to get between each round when participating in a proper match.

3. Once you have finished the above 12 minutes of work out to improve your boxing for the next 3 minutes you be looking to work on the punches that are proving to be your weakest. If you are not sure then ask someone to watch you as you train. Then after this you will spend 3 minutes working on increasing how quickly you punch. To do this you will need a light punch bag.
