There are many sports that are often used for fitness training, but there are few that can claim to be as effective as a sport like boxing for this purpose. The highly aerobic and strength-based sport asks much of its athletes, needing them to possess strength, speed, agility, coordination, endurance, and power, as well as the know-how of using these physical traits and combining them in an efficient manner to apply in a fight setting. However, even just practicing on sandbags as a fitness-related activity more than a sports-related one will allow an individual to develop the same athletic traits that a competitive boxer can more often than not boast. Thus, there is much incentive to be had in hitting the gym and going ham on a sandbag or entering the ring with a certified boxing trainer. Not only does boxing build exercising and fitness competencies; it has other health implications as well.
For one, it can be a significant boon to your cardiovascular health, putting your heart at significantly lower risk of getting fat-clogged arteries or experiencing a cardiac arrest. The highly aerobic nature of the sport forces boxers to move around speedily, thus causing the heart to pump blood at a faster rate. It has also been found to be a highly effective stress relief activity. It allows one to vent one’s frustrations out on a sandbag, and this feeling of elation amid exercise lets a person just forget about their problems for a short while as they hammer away with a flurry of punches.
