Boxing Workouts For Everyone

by James Kerrison on July 8, 2010

You gotta know by now that I just love boxing workouts for fitness. I have gone over a lot of the benefits in the Boxing for Fitness series of posts here on the website.

But wait there’s more!!

Here are a number of other reasons why I think boxing should be high on your to do list:

1. Cost

You can get a great workout with no equipment whatsoever. Shadow boxing is going to give you a great workout and you don’t need any equipment.

2. Space

Regardless of wether you are training by yourself or with a partner you really only need a few square metres to get the job done.

3. Time

You can get a great workout in 30 minutes or less.

4. Oddly enough, it can be low impact.

Low impact for the lower body most definitely. Compare this to something like running which is going to beat your joints up big time.

5. Great for your shoulders.

As long as you don’t have a shoulder injury, you will find that boxing strengthens not only your muscles but really improves your shoulder stability and strength. (Trust me, I know first hand on this!)

So here’s the thing. If you can come up with a reason why you can’t box i’m all ears. But it had better be a good reason.

There is so much going for it in terms of the benefits of boxing and there is very little (if nothing at all) that should stop you from being able to box.
