Let’s face it – when we talk boxing, the last thing that comes to mind is looking good. In fact, we think bruises, blue-eyes, broken ribs and so on. A very select amount of people will think shape, fitness and have all sorts of positives to say about it.
Boxing is indeed an intense sport, I doubt anyone can argue that. It’s about speed, movement and strength to name a few. Boxing is also not just about your hand movements and how you throw those jabs, your entire body needs to be involved.
Boxing burns Calories
According to Antonio Valverde; It is both an aerobic and an anaerobic workout. This is no surprise because boxing consists of high intensity rounds that pushes your body to the limit. When your body enters the Anaerobic space, it uses everything it has to keep up and that there equals to your calories burning fast.
Expects say: Half and hour (30Mins) spend in a ring can burn 400 calories from a 65kg weighing person, while punching a bag for the same amount of time can burn 200 calories.
Boxing keeps you on your toes, both physically and mentally. It is a wonderful sport in terms of technique, you need to be on your toes to throws those punches and move away quickly. You also need to be completely focused throughout to make sure that none come your way.
Also, to get the most out of your punches you need to control your breathing and position your body properly to get the most out of every punch. With boxing you are guaranteed to get the shape you’ve dreamed about in no time.
