Why Boxing is the Perfect Home Workout?

In the 2021- 2022 pandemic era that has also become a work-from-home environment, everyone is interested in finding easy yet effective home workout sessions to try out. This goes the same for the exercise-loving public in Sri Lanka. Considering all facts in the current society, we can look at Boxing as an ideal exercise and workout. Everyone knows that boxing training is going to have massive benefits for your overall physical health. But there are plenty of benefits of boxing training as a Sri Lankan beyond the physical including boosts to your mental health and general wellbeing.

Benefits of Boxing as the ideal home workout method

Physically, Boxing is a great way to develop both functional and aesthetic abs. A common misconception is that boxing is merely an arms workout. Sure, if you box with poor form your shoulders will burn like no other but when you do boxing with proper form it is also a profound core workout. To generate speed and power in boxing you need to utilize hip and trunk rotation. This requires the muscles of the abdomen such as the internal and external obliques to contract explosively (both concentrically and eccentrically) to produce torque as well as to slow down the movement so that your center of mass remains over your base of support, also known as midline stability.

Mentally, there are many effective ways to manage stress, from breathing techniques to meditation, cold therapy (such as an ice bath or swim in the ocean), listening to music, and my personal favorite – letting out some frustration on a punching bag. I like to call this controlled aggression in a safe environment. Many people believe that combat is in our DNA. Our primal genes are programmed to do it. Now, I’m certainly not saying that we should be fighting one another, in fact, quite the opposite. I’m not condoning violence or aggression but the martial arts gym is a great way to channel your energy safely and effectively to minimize harm (to yourself and others) and maximize the physical and mental health benefits.

Other benefits include improved heart health, weight loss, Boost of whole-body strength, Improved balance, decreased stress, lowering of blood pressure, etc.

Although it sounds like the perfect home workout, if you are trying to get into Boxing, there are other factors that you should possibly consider. We will look into that now.

Boxing Training Gloves

Boxing Training Gloves

There are several different types of boxing gloves to cater for different purposes.

Training Gloves

Training gloves refer to boxing gloves suitable for everyday use in the gym for standard mitt/pad work, heavy bag training, and partner drills. They are designed to provide the optimal balance between protection and performance. Training gloves usually feature hook-and-loop closure so they can be worn or removed easily.

Bag Gloves – As its name suggests, bag gloves are used for hitting heavy bags. They have less padding compared to regular training gloves to optimize for speed and emphasize punching form. Bag gloves are more popular with professional fighters and less so with recreational combat sports practitioners. These gloves aren’t ideal for home workouts compared to training gloves, but also can be used as equipment if needed.

Punching Bag

Punching Bag

Although it is physically demanding, a punching bag workout increases your strength and stamina effectively. Heavy-bag workouts provide amazing health benefits to your physical and mental capabilities. Thus, a punching bag is a great addition to your home or commercial gym. Ideally, you can include heavy-bag workouts as part of your fitness plan to keep yourself motivated, healthy, and energetic. Yet, doing the same exercise with a heavy bag is not going to yield results. As much as possible, implement workout varieties to get the maximum benefits that your body needs.

Many of the potential benefits of working a punching bag come only if you use it regularly and systematically. You can’t just play around on the gear for a few minutes. Considering this, we have chosen our next product to be a Punching Speed Ball, which is a type of punching bag but has some significant differences. Where a heavy bag develops power, a speed bag develops skill. Striking a speed bag in a workable rhythm requires focus, coordination, and speed. It’s also an impressive cardiovascular workout, which can improve your circulatory health and reduce your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, and similar disorders. The improved coordination may also help you in everyday life.
