Boxing sessions are a great way to get a full-body workout. I design workouts combining cardio, strength training, and coordination, which can burn calories and improve your overall fitness. I train people in general fitness, strength, boxing fitness, and for amateur boxing compeition. Many clients chose to try sparring, whether or not they compete.
A typical boxing session will start with a warm-up. This might include some light cardio, such as jogging or jumping jacks, followed by some dynamic stretches to get your muscles ready for movement.
Once you're warmed up, you'll move on to the main part of the workout. This will typically involve a variety of boxing drills, such as shadowboxing, bag work, hitting noodles or mitts and technique drills. Shadowboxing is a great way to practice your technique and footwork, while bag work is a great way to build power and endurance. Sometimes drills will need to be slowed down to focus on proper technique, or time will be taken to explain strategy and mentality.
At the end of the workout, you'll finish with some ab work. Strong core is crucial to boxing punches and stability.
Here are some of the benefits of boxing sessions:
