Boxing

Posted by

When I was Growing up watching mike tyson knock opponent out was a privilege. I know boxing is a brutal sport that leaves winner and foe bruised and bloody mess. The beautiful thing about boxing is that it helps you increase stamina, endurance and cardio.

When you start boxing it engages muscles from all over your body. From your trapezius to your deltoids, your biceps, triceps, shoulders, abs, chest and back, you use all your upper body muscles to throw punches, duck and dodge. Your legs get in on the act, by carrying you around the ring and assisting in evading your opponent, whether real or imagined. Your quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes work together to help you lunge in and out, and add power to your punches. The power you generate for any punch starts down below and drives upward from your calves in a kinetic chain. Strong calves help you bob and weave around the ring.

Sure, boxing is a physical activity that can help you get in shape, but it has psychological benefit. When hitting the heavy bag and focusing on punch and jab combinations provide an outlet for frustration, anxiety and aggression. the technical elements such as working with the speed ball and skipping help develop discipline and concentration, other aspects that can help relieve the mind of stress.
