Boxing Workouts for Women
There are three ways in which you can start boxing workouts for beginners. The first and safest, is to join a boxing gym, which has boxing classes especially designed for women. Your workout will be monitored by professionals, and you will avoid any unnecessary injuries.
The second method is that, you can set up a punching bag in a room, and hire an instructor to train you at home. The third is to buy a good home video, and follow the instructions for the exercises described in the video. Whichever one of these methods you choose, follow these boxing workouts, regularly, to achieve an extremely fit body.
Before, you start a boxing workout, a warm-up is essential. Go for a running and/or jogging session of 20 minutes. Also, include weight training in your workout. Jogging and weight training will strengthen your body for boxing routines. Start with some upper body moves like the right uppercut, left uppercut, right hook, left hook, left jab, and right cross.
Attempt some kick-boxing moves like kicks, side kicks, roundhouse kicks, rear kicks, and sidestep kicks. If you have any doubts about boxing at home, refer to home videos. After every boxing workout, finish off with a skipping session of about 7 minutes, and some stretching exercises. Then lie down on a mat for 10 minutes, and let the body cool off.
Avoid, drinking water when performing the workout. If you get very thirsty, sip a little water. You can keep a hand towel nearby, to wipe off the sweat. Wear light clothes, when working out. Boxing should be ideally done wearing a good pair of shorts. Protect your hands well with wraps for your knuckles.
Regular workouts of your upper body, combined with kick boxing, will make you better at self-defense.
If you are combining upper body and kick-boxing workouts, you can also buy kick boxing equipment, which is pretty affordable.
Well, now you know how you can get started on boxing workouts. So, initiate yourself into this workout, and enjoy the ultimate fitness routine.
