How Boxing Benefits the Body

By Brandi Swieter 

Individuals looking to increase their level of fitness can start by taking up boxing. The sport is actually incredibly beneficial for the body, increasing strength and endurance quickly if it’s utilized correctly. Boxing provides a great workout that gets the body in shape and helps to ease tension overall.

Improves Cardiovascular Health

Boxing is considered cardio fitness. With just a few jabs and kicks a person’s heart rate can already start to heighten. Boxers even spend time jogging and training to improve their overall health and get in peak shape for matches. Follow a boxer’s routine and you’ll be in shape in no time, with a strong and healthy heart to match.

Increases Muscle Mass and Strength

The constant punching and kicking that boxing entails works to increase muscle mass. It helps to build strength and endurance as well. Follow a boxing routine to really get the most of the workout and see how fast the muscles change and develop.

Develops Core Strength

Although the arms and legs get the most use during a boxing or kickboxing routine, the core develops into something stronger and leaner as well. Boxers have to remain balanced and stable as they follow through with their moves, and a strong core helps with this. Many professional or aspiring boxers use planks and crunches in an effort to develop their cores and help them stay in shape for training and matches.

Strengthens the Back

The back provides a lot of support for the body. A weak back can lead to a slouched posture and poor movement. Boxing works to strengthen the back and shoulders, making the body more fit and better able to handle tasks overall. The stronger the back is, the more it can handle. It will be less likely to experience back-related injuries as well.

Relieves Stress

Even something as simple as punching a punching bag repeatedly can greatly reduce stress. It helps people get out their frustrations in a safe and healthy way instead of taking out that aggression elsewhere. De-stressing is beneficial to the body because it eases the aches that often come with tension from stress.

Anyone considering fitness options should think about adding boxing to their list. It’s a great way to boost heart health while decreasing stress and getting in shape. The activity can be tough on the body, so be sure to visit The Joint Chiropractic after a session to see about alleviating some of the aches associated with it, or get tips on how best to prevent injury while practicing.
