BENEFITS OF BOXING

We get it; it’s a very stressful time right now. But we are here to help! Did you know one of the biggest benefits of boxing is stress relief?

 

Benefits Of Boxing

Not only that, by adopting a quick daily boxing workout, you’ll also be improving the following:

CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Boxing is a great aerobic exercise, it gets your heart pumping and helps lower your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

MUSCLE STRENGTH

Whilst being in the boxer crouch with a wide stance and your knees slightly bent, you will strengthen your core muscles, including your back and legs. You will also increase your upper-body strength when punching and engaging your shoulder muscles. TIP: Never underestimate the power of a shadow boxing session!

HAND EYE CO-ORDINATION

Boxing helps improve hand eye co-ordination, weather you are trying to hit a heavy bag, working the pads or taking on an opponent. Boxing makes you feel more alert, attentive and improves precision.

BALANCE

In boxing, you’re constantly changing your positioning, moving your weight from one foot to another and focusing on your balance. The more you practice, the better your reactions become.
