Boxing provides many benefits and challenges. For example, it has the potential to turn lives around by providing focus and an outlet for pent up aggression. It is also one of the most comprehensive workouts you'll find! The actual fighting aspect need not be emphasized to realize the many benefits of boxing, which include:
1: It's the Ultimate Workout
Burn up to 900 calories in one hour!! The typical boxing training session stimulates all muscle groups, and provides the perfect combination of aerobic (with oxygen) and anaerobic (short-burst, without oxygen) exercise. Indeed, the boxers' workout is guaranteed to get anyone into the best shape of their lives.
Exercises that are emphasized include, heavy bag, speed-ball spring-ball and medicine-ball work, skipping, running, weight-training (calisthenics mainly) and wind-sprints.
2: Builds Confidence
Possessing the skills to look after yourself gives you a significant amount of confidence. Contrary to popular belief, boxers typically do not seek confrontation. Their skills and confidence convey an inward belief that there is nothing to prove. If you have nothing to prove, you will be less compelled to prove it. However, if boxers need to protect themselves in a self-defense situation, they will be more adept at finishing things quickly and cleanly, due to heightened confidence levels and skill. When someone is confident in the ability to defend themselves physically, this often translates to a psychological benefit of self-contentment and peace of mind.
3: Relieves Stress
Boxing is the ultimate sport for countering stress. The combination of strength training and aerobic work provides the best of both worlds in terms of feeling a muscular pump and stimulating the cardiovascular system - both of which enhance psychological well-being. After a hard day, hitting the heavy bag for 5-to-6 rounds serves as a tremendous stress release. Boxing (particularly concentrating on the focus mitts) enhances the ability to relax, which helps keep the boxer calm and poised under pressure. In this sense, boxing might help one to manage their life more efficiently.
4: Provides the Ultimate Contest Between Two People
Boxing allows for a direct competitive experience between two people in a controlled setting. Depending on the athletes' disposition, this can be a great self-esteem boost. Full-contact sparring, which is optional, provides the perfect platform to refine fundamental boxing skills, and a great test of physical capability and courage.
