Keeps your heart healthy
In a boxing workout you tend to breathe heavily, thus increasing the rate at which your heart pumps blood into your body. This strengthens your heart muscles and over time, lowers your chances of developing cardiovascular issues.
It makes you very fit
Boxing helps you get the most out of your body. It helps you maintain a reasonable amount of oxygen which is then carried to your muscles to be used as fuel. This in turn burns fat. The high intensity of boxing increases endurance, muscle mass, metabolism and ability to fight fatigue.
Burns calories and fat
An hour of boxing can burn around 300 to 500 calories depending on the intensity of your workout. Not only that, boxing even aids in losing the fat around your stomach (okay we are sold!). You can always combine this fabulous exercise with resistance workout.
Stronger and more toned
With its different forms of movement and repetitive motions, it is the perfect exercise to build speed and endurance. It also strengthens your arms, legs and core areas. Since it is a highly repetitive workout, it gives you a much more toned frame.
It is a great stress reliever
This one will surprise you! Boxing can be therapeutic. It helps relieve physical and mental stress and tension. Boxing decreases stress hormones and increases the feel – good chemicals in your body. This elevates your mood and relieves stress.
