Have you been thinking about burning some calories or developing your cardiovascular fitness? Boxing training is a great way to achieve this and is the perfect workout to stimulate your mind, body and soul. With a variety of techniques that come from boxing you can focus on your heart rate and use boxing aids to create a more challenging workout routine, improving the condition of your entire body.

It is good to check the intensity of your cardio boxing routine and how it is affecting you by checking your heart rate regularly with a good heart rate monitor. A minute break between each round in a Boxing match is called interval training, this interval training pause of a minute is effective for developing cardiovascular fitness as someone who doesn’t want to fight can just workout with a punching bag. There are many health benefits of high-paced boxing cardiovascular exercises including reduced blood pressure and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Boxing training can deliver great results in both calorie burning and weight loss. One might think that boxing is only for the rough and tough, huge framed fighters, but that’s not just it, the combat sport is also one of the most effective full body workouts you can consider.  Boxing keeps the body in motion constantly from dodging and ducking to jabbing which all contributes to keeping the heart rate high and burning calories. The exact number of calories burned depends on your weight and how passionately you workout. An average person can expect to burn at least 350 calories in an hour of boxing.

A combination of different exercises for weight loss and cardio fitness typically starts with a 10 minute warm-up ofskipping or running, followed by drill circuits for three to four minutes each in which you repeat sets of certaintraining moves, like walking lunges, standing crunches, or jump squats, and boxing moves like punching combinations or partnered sparring. Professional boxing training concentrates on other things like precision and technique that can be given a lesser priority if you are not into fighting someone in a cage or ring. 

Beside burning fats and increased cardiovascular fitness there are other benefits of boxing that can help us a lot in our daily lives, such as reduced stress, improved confidence and self-esteem, increased bone density, Increased Muscle Tone and strengthening the entire body.

So, would you choose to try out boxing as a form of fitness?
