How to Get Fit by Boxing

Jul 25, 2008
Have you always thought that the professional boxers are the only one who go for boxing training programs? This is a completely wrong idea as there are many people who prefer boxing just to keep their body fit and active. An active body is the key to success from all aspects. In fact boxing is the only sport which not only makes your body strong but it also strengthens your mind.

Apart from the regular diet and exercise programs start practicing boxing for at least half an hour a day. Who knows gradually you will become the champion boxer of your locality as well as an efficient worker at the office. Many of you believe that boxing is just the right way to improve the muscles and make your legs and arms more active. But this is for your information that boxing will improve your self-defense, concentration and confidence.

Techniques of Boxing

A perfect boxing training is all about few right movements and a lot of hard work. The most popular moves are power punches, aerobic moves, sparring jabs and kicks actions. If you practice the moves under the supervision of a skilled trainer then the chances are very high that you will own a perfectly shaped body with extreme swiftness and reflex.

This is also a good way to burn the excess flab around your tummy. Did you know that if you practice full fledged boxing for one hour without taking short breaks then you will end up loosing almost 500 calories?

The heart rate is maintained at around 80%. The boxing programs are different for various levels. The beginners start with the nominal boxing schedules and gradually move to the next level when they are very much comfortable with the existing level.

How to Start Boxing?

Yesternight you and your family decided that you should start boxing and you will start it from the next morning - this is not possible as you need to do little preparation for this. First of all find out a place at home where you can start practicing the basic kicks and punches with a sandbag.

You can turn your backyard or a garage into a boxing ground. Buy some good quality gloves as they are the most important equipment for the boxers. Then you will need a tutor who can teach you the core techniques of boxing. Yes you can seek help from the boxing videos and books but the best way to learn is to get someone who can show you the punches and hits practically. If you do not have anybody at home who can help you this way then go ahead and join the nearest boxing club to stay fit forever.
