BOXING TRAINING TIPS FOR BEGINNERS
Here are a few tips for beginners that will help you get started with some of the boxing techniques we use here at Georgia Sports Performance:
- STAYING HYDRATED – Just expect to sweat a lot during a typical session. Once you get to the level of sparring you can anticipate burning 400 – 800 calories within 30 minutes. Ensuring that you drink plenty of water will allow you to stay strong during your workouts.
- WEAR THE CORRECT CLOTHING – For men, wearing shorts and a t-shirt will work for these type of workouts. It’s not necessary right away to purchase boxing shoes, you can wear sneakers like a running shoe. As you advance you can invest in a pair of boxing shoes for sparring.
- WEAR GLOVES AND WRAPS – When first starting out most of the pre-training will consist of learning the fundamentals of boxing training and cardio. It’s not necessary to have gloves and hand wraps immediately. However, once we start progressing into sparring and hitting the bag, you will want to make sure to have boxing gloves and hand wrap.
- LEARN TO WRAP YOUR WRIST & HANDS – Advanced level of boxing training is going to require you to have your wrist and hands wrapped. Here is a great Youtube video that shows a couple of different ways to wrap your hands.
- BEGIN BUILDING UP YOUR CARDIO – Boxing is one of the best cardio workouts. It is essential but adding sparring into the mix will began to work the small muscles in your upper and lower body.
- LEARN TO CONTROL YOUR BREATHING – Learning how to breathe accurately is the most important technique needed for boxing workouts. Breathe out through nose and mouth when you throw a punch it will expel air from your lungs. When you get hit make sure to breathe in from your diaphragm.
- BE PATIENT AND SAFE – Just like with your wrists and hands you need to protect other crucial parts of your body when sparring. Ensure you have the following once you have advanced to sparring; headgear and mouth guard.
