Core Workouts - Boxing Training

Boxers look awesome! As a personal trainer, when I show photos to my clients asking them what they wish to look like, nine times out of ten, they choose a photo of a male or female boxer or martial artist! Find out how to train like one, and look like one!

Boxers know that building huge bulky muscle mass isn't going to make them quicker in the boxing ring. However, they need to have power, strength, endurance, and agility in order to conquer their opponent.

Now, you may not wish to 'conquer' an opponent, you may just want to conquer some body fat and personal pounds! Boxing is a great way to do this! Whether you have a heavy bag, or you just practice some shadow boxing and interval training. Here is how you do it!

Boxers and mixed martial artists like to use the jump rope. It's a simple tool that you can use anywhere, even at home! You can interval 15 minutes of jump rope with 15 minutes of muscle endurance building, such as push ups, squats, weight lifting, or anything that will get your muscles pumping. Some boxers will even do a 15 minute warm up of jumping rope, and then interval the jump rope in between each set of what ever exercise they are doing.

So, for instance, one minute jump rope, one minute of squats, one minute of jump rope, one minute of push ups, one minute of jump rope, one minute of straight punches on the bag. If you alternate many of these things, you will get one HECK of a workout!

Remember, a boxer has to last three minutes in a ring with their opponent. This doesn't seem like a long time, but, when you are going all out in your intensity of your training, three minutes can be quite hard to do! Give it a try! For more information on boxing workouts, go to
