Boxing: new celeb fitness craze

accreditation

Here are the benefits of boxing:

Fat burning

Boxing can easily burn as much as 500 calories per session. Boxing has an additional benefit thanks to the fact that it is high intensity training, which means you burn calories even after the session.

Increased muscle tone

A typical boxer's physique is toned and defined. This is because punching is a fast repetitive action that produces taut muscles.

Improved core stability

Anything that causes your body to become unstable requires your core muscles to work harder to keep you balanced. Boxing requires lots of fast rotational movements and these core muscles will develop.

Improved strength and power Boxing is the ultimate full body workout. Correctly thrown punches use your legs, hips, glutes, core, obliques, back, shoulders, chest and arms. Stress relief Sure, boxing is a fantastic activity that can help you get in shape, but it has psychological benefits too. Hitting stuff can make you feel really good!
