Knockout Fitness offers a popular form of boxing is known as aerobic or cardiovascular (cardio) boxing, which combines elements of boxing and aerobics to provide overall physical conditioning and toning. Unlike other types of boxing, cardio boxing does not involve physical contact between competitors – it’s a cardiovascular workout that’s done because of its many benefits to the body.
Cardio boxing classes are usually comprised of 10 to 15 minutes of warm-ups, which may include stretching and traditional exercises such as jumping jacks and push-ups, followed by a 30-minute boxing session that includes movements such combinations of jabs, uppercuts, and punches. The class uses 150 lb. punching bags.
After this, at least 5 minutes should be devoted to cooling down, followed by about 10 minutes of stretching and muscle conditioning. Stretching is really important and slow, proper stretching helps relax muscles and prevent injury.
- When you do begin boxing, allow yourself to be a beginner by working at your own pace and not overexerting yourself to the point of exhaustion.
- Try a class beforehand to see whether it’s right for you and to make sure to tell the instructor to modify the routine a bit to accommodate your skill level.
- Wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows your arms and legs to move easily in all directions. The best shoes are cross-trainers – not tennis shoes – because cross-trainers allow for side-to-side movements. Gloves or hand wraps are used during classes – you will be able to borrow these for your free trial class and buy your own when you enroll from our store.
- The key to a good boxing workout is controlled movement. Start with one or two combinations as you slowly learn proper boxing technique. This is very important for beginners.
Drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after your class to quench your thirst and keep yourself hydrated and don’t eat a least one hour before your class.
