Those things will only last for a few days, perhaps couple of weeks. But as the boxing exercises will be repeated for the succeeding days, pain will be lesser, because one’s body can adapt and will become immune with the process. Furthermore, after enduring the pain, you’ll surely gain a lot.
Boxing will not just make you leaner; your muscles will also be more toned and much stronger. Boxing indeed is extremely high intensity which gets your heart rate and metabolism up long after the workout finishes. This means that you will absorb fewer calories as fat during the day and thus prevent excess weight gain.
In order for you to start the workout, of course you need to know and just stay at the basics first. You need to make sure that you are ready by preparing things that will keep you away from injuries. The following things might help you to have a successful boxing experience; a pair of good boxing gloves, a heavy punching bag, and hand wraps to wrap your knuckles and a trainer of course. No matter how eager you are to learn boxing, it is always better to have a trainer, or someone who has the knowledge with the boxing field to assist you, helping you do the right thing so you won’t get injured.
Boxing workouts usually last for 25 – 35 minutes. Same as all the exercises and fitness programs, one should start in having some sort of warm-up exercises and stretching, to prepare your body for a much intense activity. Then, preparing the heavy bag workout, the idea is to go as hard as you can on the heavy bag using a variety of moves for three minutes at a time. This replicates a boxing match where the rounds each go for three minutes.
After each round you should rest for no more than 30 seconds and start again. Try and do this for the whole time. If you think that you can’t finish the minimum of 25 minutes, you are free to stop. Do lighter exercises to help your heart rate; those great boxers are also doing this. It doesn’t need to be flawless at the first try, as you go on and continue doing the same thing over and over, you’ll realize that your stamina is getting stronger and more so, your body becomes leaner.
