Hi this is my second article. My first article is on my new program which is going great.(Now onto business.)
If you are on a cutting phase and regular cardio just aint cuttin it then boxing is for you. I have been through seven arts of martial arts and none of them have been more intense then boxing.(I call boxing a martial arts style because technically martial arts is fighting and boxing does just that.) In this program I will explain to you the right way to hit the bag, safety, and all of that other good stuff. (now onto the program.)
Here are the materials that you will need:
and most importantly boxing gloves.
First part of the workout is the jump rope now hopefully you all know how to use one. The next thing is that you will find very difficult is the speed bag this builds speed and coordnation how you use it is kind of like tae bow except for you want to start slow and then once you get the hang of it you need to start going a little bit faster.
This next one is an art of its own how to use the puching bag here is a list of punches and how to do them.
Jab- punch straight with your front hand
straight- same as jab except for you punch with your back hand
hook-it is kind of like when you swing your arm except for slighty bend your elbow.
Uppercut-like the hook except for you are punching upward.
When you hit the punching bag put your gloves on first or you can damage your hands.(I have seen it done and it aint pretty)
The reason why I had you get a mirror is for shadow boxing just imagine an opponent and kick the crap out of him. But shadow boxing is tiring trust me.
Now that you now know how to use all of this now here is the program.
Jump rope 10 minutes
speed bag 15 minutes
Heavy bag 20 minutes
shadow boxing 5 minutes (this is a cool down but do it intensely.)
Now that is the program if you have any questions email me at email@example.com
