”Boxing is not just about using the fists. It is a science of strategy, defense, diversions, and instinct.”
The Boxing Conditioning classes at Vagner Martial Arts are extremely informative, hands on, fun, upbeat, and open to both men and women, ages 14 and up. There should be no concerns regarding age or fitness level as each individual will train and excel at their own pace.
Boxing Conditioning offers a popular form of boxing, 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.
The Boxing Conditioning classes are usually comprised of 10 to 15 minutes of warm-ups, which may include stretching and traditional exercises, followed by a 40-minute shadow boxing without a partner, using combinations of jabs, uppercuts, and punches demonstrated by the instructor. After this, at least 5 minutes should be devoted to cooling down, stretching and muscle conditioning. Stretching is really important, it helps relax muscles and prevent injury.
Besides keeping your body fit, boxing has tons of other benefits:
- Increase Upper Lower Body Strength
