BOXING TRAINING AND PADWORK FOR FITNESS
If you are looking to lose weight and become more lean and toned then boxing and padwork training could be just what you are looking for. Boxing is a high intensity, full body workout that challenges and develops your aerobic and anaerobic fitness by utilising both cardiovascular and resistance training. It is suitable for all levels of fitness, from beginners to the highly conditioned.
A boxing fitness programme will capture many of the key components of optimal fitness and will help to improve:
It’s important to teach correct technique for pad work, which is why consulting a professional is advisable. Simply bashing away at a pad without learning the basic skills can easily lead to injury. Correct technique allows punches to be delivered safely and with power, speed and accuracy. This aids in developing the central nervous system by training it to respond efficiently and effectively to various drills, improving agility, balance, coordination, power, speed and reaction time.
The highly repetitive nature of boxing and padwork means that you will tone the body rather the adding bulk. And it is not all about the arms, shoulders and back; core work is essential to maintaining balance and agility and by focusing on the footwork element you also work your lower body. It really is a true all over body workout.
It’s also a great way to add cross training into your routine adding variety to your full training programme, plus an incredible stress reliever, and who doesn’t need that in today’s world?
