Boxing conditions the entire body in a number of ways that will be highlighted in further detail, ultimately cultivating some of the greatest fitness levels found in any sport. The physical as well as psychological benefits of boxing are extensive. Some of these characteristics include increased self-discipline and self-confidence, increased agility, speed, coordination, endurance and strength. Unlike most forms of fitness training, reflex reaction times are also improved and some of the most challenging skills are learnt.
The sport of boxing entails an extremely elevated full-body workout utilizing every part of your body from your head, hands, torso, legs etc. that will make you physically stronger as well as aerobically and anaerobically fitter. This sport provides a complete workout for your cardiovascular and endurance systems as well as training upper body, lower body and core strength.
To get into even more specifics, the calorie expenditure and fat burning are most certainly raised during boxing as it is such a high intensity workout utilizing large muscle groups and constantly keeping you moving. Boxing does not tend to add muscle bulk as much as tone and define muscle because it involves such high repetitions.
This wonderful sport is indubitably a workout that can accommodate for all levels of strength and fitness and can be enjoyed by people of all levels, from beginner to advanced participants. Drills can easily be modified to increase or decrease intensity and complexity of the workout. Boxing Equipment is a pivotal commodity to this sport as equipment is with any sport.
It is essential to have the proper equipment when training in order to yield positive results in your game.
Achieving your peak performance with maximum safety should be your number one priority when training in boxing and the Universal Self Defence online store has a full grasp of this concept. We pride ourselves on providing the best equipment around to help all the enthusiasts of boxing achieve their greatest potential.

Focus Mitts & Belly Pads
For realistic sparring combination drills boxers will often work with their trainer who will hold focus mitts whilst wearing a belly pad so more realistic body punches can be practiced with maximum intensity. The trainer will also work in defensive ducking and weaving moves by throwing punches with the focus mitts or with a pair of dual-purpose focus mitts boxing gloves.

Boxing Clothes
Boxing clothes consist of light boxing shorts, singlet, boots and robe. Boxing clothes must not restrict or hold back the fighter in anyway and not come loose whilst fighting. This also makes boxing clothes great to workout in the gym. Good quality boxing shorts will always be very light and loose with extra wide elastic and drawstring waist. Boxing singlets should be a tight fit so they do not come loose and allow free movement of the shoulders for punching. Boxing boots help the fighters to have more stable footwork and protect the feet from blisters when moving around on the canvas. Boxing robes are mainly worn for presentation purposes at competitions.

Boxing Guards & Protectors
To improve the safety of the sport boxers need to wear adequate head, mouth and groin guards with abdominal protection whenever sparring in the gym or in competition. Also hand wraps help to support the hands and wrist when sparring and hitting the punching bag.

Skipping Ropes
One of the best training aids to help athletes become lighter and faster on their feet would have to be skipping ropes. It is also great for rhythm and timing and a cardio endurance workout. Boxers often skip for the same amount of time as their next boxing match so they have the fitness to remain light on their feet for the whole match. At Universal Self Defence there is big range of skipping ropes, with leather, nylon or wire cable ropes and with handles that can be wooden, pvc, steel, foam padded or handles that are specially weighted.

Boxing Rings
Boxing rings can either be elevated on a platform or mounted on the floor. The most common boxing ring that people see used with general public boxing bouts and at boxing tournaments is mounted on a platform so it is easier for everyone the see the boxing match. The floor boxing rings are most commonly used for training in boxing gyms as they are more economical and easier to mount and easier to get in and out of the ring.
