Boxing Gloves

Welcome to the Hungry4Fitness Boxing Blog Page

“Boxing is a contest of character and ingenuity. The boxer with more will, determination, desire, and intelligence is always the one who comes out the victor.”

Cus D'Amato

The health and fitness benefits of boxing have long been understood. Few sports or exercise disciplines incorporate such a broad range of fitness components as does the art of pugilism. In a typical boxing session the pugilist will need to demonstrate superior cardiovascular resolve and muscular endurance output. Moreover, the boxer must maintain mental focus as they coordinate their body through a series of complex and explosive movements. And this is just training! We haven't considered combat yet.

But that is one of the most common misunderstandings of boxing - viz. that in order to do boxing you have to fight. This, of course, is not true. You can still reap the many benefits the sport has to offer without throwing a single aggressive punch. And the list of benefits is impressive. They include:    

  • Fat burning

  • Increased muscle tonality

  • Improved bone density

  • Increased cardio-respiratory performance

  • Augmented muscular endurance

  • Improved core stability

  • Increase power

  • Enhanced reaction time and coordination

  • Stress Relief

So now you are aware of the numerous benefits to be had, why not try and incorporate a bit of boxing into your training regime? Acquiring the basic skills can take as little as a couple of sessions and the equipment needed is relatively inexpensive (see our range of blogs for advice and guidance on some of the best boxing products available). After you've got yourself a pair of hand wraps and gloves and something to hit, all that's left is to learn how to throw a punch. The sooner you start the sooner you'll be enjoying those benefits.
