What are the benefits of a boxing workout?

Cardiovascular Fitness

This start-stop style of exercise is referred to as interval training. Interval training involves alternating between high-intensity and low-intensity work with shorts periods of rest intermixed to increase cardiovascular fitness. There are many health benefits of boxing for cardiovascular health including reduced risk of heart disease, reduced blood pressure and reduced risk of stroke.

Reduce Stress

Boxing style training including hitting a heavy bag, doing pad work and working the speed ball provide a good outlet for stress. Intense exercise triggers the release of feel-good hormones called endorphins, which leave you feeling happy, confident and less stressed.

Increased Bone Density

Bone mass normally peaks when you are in your mid-30s to late 30s and then, if left unchecked, gradually declines as you age. Weight-bearing exercise and exercises that place a significant load through your bones can reduce bone loss and may even result in increased bone mass. If left untreated, low bone mass may develop into a serious medical condition called osteoporosis, which is normally associated with bones that fracture easily. As boxing loads all of your major bones, it can help prevent bone loss.

Healthy Weight Management

Boxing training is an energetic activity that burns a lot of calories. This calorie-burning effect can help prevent a calorific surplus and help with weight maintenance or weight loss. A 130-pound person who performs a 30-minute session on a punching bag will burn around 175 calories, and the same person would burn around 260 sparring. Combined with a calorie controlled diet, boxing training can help you maintain your ideal weight.
