Body Movement: Boxing

Body Movement: Boxing

 

Need to let off some steam? Get that body moving by sparring with your boxing gloves on!

If you’re thinking “How can I get started with boxing??”, let me give you this creative example: My son once created a make-shift boxing bag by filling his laundry bag with clothes and towels, and then hung it from his pull-up bar in the doorway.

When there’s a will, there’s always a way!

Here are a few benefits of a good boxing workout:

  1. Improved Total-Body Strength. All that punching, kicking, and jumping requires a surprising amount of strength. Think about it – most professional heavy bags weigh at least 100 pounds!
  1. Better Hand-Eye Coordination. You may not think about the importance of hand-eye coordination and its affect on total health, but hand-eye coordination plays an important role in a person’s gross and fine motor skills. This is particularly important during aging, as coordination and balance become compromised, increasing the risk of falls.
  1. Improved Body Composition. Boxing is great for improving body composition – and some might say it’s great for weight loss. Personally, I don’t promote “weight loss” because I don’t think it sends the right message about health goals. Ultimately, if you want to lose weight, what you really want to do is improve your body composition – to increase your muscle mass and decrease your fat mass.

So if you’re in search of a unique workout that will improve your overall body strength and composition, put on your boxing gloves and get moving!
