Muscles, Anaerobic v Aerobic

Performed correctly, boxing training will effectively work & develop the majority of muscles in the entire body. Due to the large amount of continuous bodyweight movement during a training session, muscular and cardiovascular endurance is a natural by product of boxing. Correct footwork & technique are essential to making sure the entire body (arms, shoulder, core, legs) is engaged during training.
A typical 60min session of boxing training will average at around 60% anaerobic and 40% aerobic and can be adapted according to a client’s needs / abilities.
When performing an exercise such as punching a focus mitt, we are required to generate force, so our breathing rhythm will change as we generate the force due to the energy required to execute the movement.
Boxing training can be related to the same concepts as high repetition resistance training where the muscle is under constant loads for a given amount of time.
