Top 3 Major Benefits of Boxing

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 117

In response to the growing interest of the people in the field of boxing, more gyms have offered boxing training programs and courses. This resulted into an increased number of boxing followers and enthusiasts. However, only those who hit the gym for a boxing session could understand the real reason behind this craze.

There is a great deal of benefits that one gets in a single boxing session. Most of these are felt from the onset of the training which includes jogging, fast running, sit-ups, and other minor exercises. As a person progresses, the training becomes heavier, more intense, and the benefits increase. Changes become more evident which makes the trainee want boxing all the more. To help you decide whether you hit the gym and try boxing workout yourself, here is a list of the top major benefits of boxing.

• Health Benefits

1. Boxing improves one's cardiovascular health as it promotes proper breathing, thereby strengthening the heart. A great number of heart patients suddenly die of heart attack, so this could be a relieving exercise for them. More fats are burnt, so does the harmful cholesterol in the body.

  1. It helps remove toxins and pollutants from the body. As one perspires during the exercise, liquid wastes come out in the form of sweat making the person feel good and refreshed.
  2. The strenuous exercise helps build muscular and skeletal strength; thus, providing the person with a healthy network of support system.
  3. Doing it regularly boosts one's immune system. Expect this person to be healthier than before due to an excellent and strong defense system.

• Physical Benefits

1. Boxing promotes weight loss. It burns excess fats and removes unwanted fat deposits in the body, making the body toned. The one to two-hour boxing class subjects a person to heavy and sustained physical activities and workout. There is no chance for that person to come out the same as before.

2. It improves stamina. Boxing is not just about getting in the ring and involving one's self into sparring sessions. To survive, proper techniques should be observed which includes footwork and hand speed. As a person moves to a higher level, his pace is increased; thus, a considerable development of stamina, agility, and speed is achieved.

• Psychological Benefits

1. It boosts self-confidence. The further one moves with the training, the better his self-confidence becomes. It stems from his physiological need of feeling secured at all times. That is why boxing and its techniques are now used as self-defense weapon.

2. It decreases depression and releases stress. Throwing punches on the bag or doing well in a sparring session could release an extra dose of stress. Along the way, one feels more refreshed and relaxed as the negative toxins are replaced by happy hormones. It makes a person cheerful and feel great.

3. It teaches self-discipline. Professional boxers have a lot of this. An aspiring boxer will not survive the hard blows and punches if he lacks self-discipline and proper planning. So as an ordinary person who tries boxing, he needs total focus and strict discipline to achieve the desired results.

The information you have read came from the testimonies of the people who have tried the boxing workouts themselves. I'm hitting the gym soon and experience all the benefits mentioned above. After reading the top 3 major benefits of boxing, you might decide to try and give it a second thought.
