Few training regimens can match the total body, comprehensive workouts associated with boxing. Because boxers need a combination of strength, quickness, endurance, and flexibility, boxing training includes exercises ranging from weight training to jump roping, jogging, push-ups, crunches, and plenty of sessions hitting the speed bag and heavy bag. The specifics of your boxing class will depend on the facility, but some will even include light sparring sessions with protective padding and head gear.
