Hi friends :) cheers to the freakin’ weekend!
As you know… or maybe you don’t if you are new around here (welcome!)… I love going to boxing but it’s making my pockets feel a little empty. The membership to the gym I go to is not cheap so I am not going to renew it once it finishes. All about budgeting remember?
But… I’m not giving it up entirely, no way Jose. Solution? Make my own boxing class! After countless classes I’d like to think I learned a few things. This is a fun, high intensity, cardio and strength workout (and a total aggression reliever).
I did not want to keep the fun all to myself… sharing is caring after all… so here you go! As always, I have links explaining the exercises below the workout.
Have fun… don’t knock anyone out :)
Get into your boxing stance:
-If you are right-handed, stand with your left foot forward; lefties, right foot forward.
-Bend your knees slightly and keep your core tight.
-Put your hands up, on either side of your face.
-Use your core to turn your body (at the hips) to throw each punch.
Straight punches: punch straight in-front of you, alternating hands.
Hooks: bend your elbow (to about 90 degrees) and punch at the air in-front of you.
Uppercuts: punch in an upwards motion toward your face, alternating hands.
Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks to Jill for the link-up.
Have you done a boxing class or workout before?
