Fitness Boxing: Hit Like A Girl

Happy International Day Of The Girl! What was on your weekends’ Fitness List? Mine was definitely fitness boxing. And yes, I hit like a girl!

If you haven’t considered boxing yet, here are a few pointers for starters. Hint: training style might vary from one boxing gym to another.

Warm-Ups

First, you’re going to walk then jog. Sometimes, the boxing coach will let you take a walk or a jog at a certain distance or you can do it back and forth. In my case, I do the latter.

Stretching

Second, you’re going to do pole stretching.

Muscle Workout

Next, you’re up for a round of workout exercises to improve abs, glutes, and other muscles. Just a word of advice: don’t push yourself too hard, our bodies have their own limitations. These exercises include the use of a medicine ball.

Jump Rope And Ladder

Now you’re up for some ladder and jump rope exercises. It’s not really a ladder though, but it’s shaped like one. You’re sort of going to do an adult hopscotch. Also, you can do jump ropes in front of the mirror.

Punch Like A Girl

Last stage would be putting on your hand wraps. And now we’re ready to rumble. This involves: speed ball training, punching bags, and one-on-one training with the coach. You will also learn punching combos, which usually start with the jab.
