Fat loss

Boxing is great for fat loss. All boxing exercises make one sweat. Whether its heavy bag work, jumping rope, sparring, mitt work, push-ups or shadowboxing, you will burn calories. You can shed off few pounds within one workout if it is intense. This is more effective than a standard workout at the gym in which you do many cardio exercises. This is a great benefit of boxing for weight loss.

 

Self-defense

Although there are a lot of sports which help you in defending yourself, boxing is indeed most effective especially if you are facing just 1 attacker. If you are fighting with more than 1 attacker, what you want to avoid at all cost is getting your fight to the ground because if anyone among your opponents takes you down, the others can kick or simply smash you. So wrestling and BJJ are not effective in such cases. Even kickboxing doesn’t work as your opponents can catch few of your kicks taking you down. Instead of this, boxing makes you learn how to defend yourself in a standup position with your hands, footwork and head movement. If you don’t want to hurt your opponent, defend yourself by just blocking his shots and utilizing your footwork for creating a distance until he exhausts himself. This is among the many benefits of boxing workouts.

Improving reflexes

Boxing demands good timing and good reflexes. You require these skills and abilities whether you are landing shots or blocking or slipping punches. Initially, you may not possess great reflexes but they will improve with time. Speed bag and sparrings are best ways for doing it. You will experience the difference after only few workouts. This is a benefit of boxing shoes.

Increasing your strength

It isn’t compulsory to be powerful for being a good boxer but you would gain some strength after doing boxing training especially with exercises like push-ups, weighted shadowboxing, pull-ups and medicine ball throwing. All these add up to the list of advantages of boxing.

Physical toughness

Whenever you finish doing sparring, your coach will ask you to do abs conditioning which is simply punching each other in the abs with partial power for half a minute. These drills make us physically tougher and durable. This is besides the mental benefits of boxing discussed later.

Speed

You not only improve your hand speed with boxing but you also become much faster in footwork and head movement. For improving their speed, boxers do footwork drills, sprinting, speed bag work and double-end bag work. This is one of the physical benefits of boxing.

 

Coordination and body awareness

Through boxing, you improve your hand-eye coordination and body awareness which is very helpful in not just other sports but in daily life. The best exercises are shadowboxing, footwork drills, jumping rope and speed bag work. These benefits of boxing are for seniors and youth alike.

Higher confidence

The final aim of combat sports and martial arts is not using them. After you acquire experience in them and get to know that you can harm others, you become more confident but still try resolving conflicts with peace. You start looking and feeling better as you regularly work out which raises your self-confidence. This benefit of boxing attracts many women to it.

Anyone can do it

There is no age for boxing. Furthermore, you can box irrespective of your physical shape and height. Terri Moss was 34, overweight and depressed. She started boxing only to lose weight but soon fell in love with it. Guess what? She not only lost weight but later became a world champ at 42. I remember my colleague Andy. At the same gym where I went, he trained with his father who was above 70. Boxing is for anyone wishing to train and improve himself. Do not think that you don’t belong to this club and it is for someone else. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It is a muscle benefit of boxing.

It is fun

Almost anything linked with boxing is fun be it sparring, be it heavy bag, be it speed bag work, be it jumping rope. There are people who even enjoy just talking about sweet science. There a lot of others who, for the first time, visit boxing gym and say it was the most fun-filled workout they ever had. This is one of the top benefits of boxing.

Knowledge

In just some weeks of training, you would gain loads of knowledge which would make you recognize the various techniques and styles while watching boxing. You would deeply understand what really happens in fights and you will discover that boxing is much more entertaining than you thought. I wondered that I would understand boxing by watching it on Youtube and television. However, when I actually started boxing and immersed myself in real fights, then my knowledge increased by leaps and bounds because I saw it from a much closer angle. This is a benefit of boxing in schools.

 

It increases your stamina

Having great stamina is indispensable to boxing. The professionals need to fight for twelve rounds, three minutes each. That is thirty six minutes of throwing punches, moving, defending and grappling in the clinches. Don’t forget that in a stressful situation you gas out quicker. No wonder, boxers concentrate a lot on their cardio by running, swimming, sprinting and jumping rope. This is besides the social benefits of boxing mentioned in this article.

 

Train like a genuine athlete

In boxing, you attack and defend simultaneously. This is very tough and demands various skills and abilities. That is why fighters engage themselves in a lot of exercises for conditioning which also include push-ups and sit-ups. While training, you do the drills so you feel it is a genuine athlete workout. Benefits of boxing for fitness are many.

Select your level

It isn’t essential for everyone who begins boxing to turn into pros or compete in amateur matches. You can opt for doing boxing only for getting into proper shape, losing weight, for entertainment or as a career path. You can select your own level of participation – do you want to train twice or thrice a week or almost on a daily basis or you want to go to the next level and practically compete with other promising fighters?

Career Opportunity

Do you consider yourself good enough to make it to the pro level? Did you discover yourself being very talented? Is there any scope of starting a career in boxing and making a lot of money? As mentioned earlier, it’s not any necessary condition at all that you have to be very young for starting a successful career in it. So if you actually wish to turn yourself into a very good boxer, it is highly recommended that you start as an amateur and search for a genuine boxing gym which has an amateur team of fighters.

Make money

If don’t find yourself that talented for beginning a boxing career or maybe you simply don’t want to because of other reasons but you still possess knowledge and experience to cash in, you can make good amount of money by betting. Although I personally neither like nor suggest gambling to any one else, boxing is indeed a good sport for betting in comparison with other famous combat sports like Muay Thai, MMA and kickboxing. The reason is that in boxing, since punching alone is permitted, the chances for something crazy to happen are much smaller implying that there is less risk. In contrast, for instance, in MMA or kickboxing, your favorite player can get knocked out in the blink of an eye by a head kick even despite being in a winning position before that. Thus, the probability of risk or an upset is less in boxing if you understand it and are well aware of the boxers.

Train others

When you acquire reasonable amount of experience in boxing and start understanding it quite well but you cannot or would not like to compete, you can become a coach or trainer. There are many gyms seeking trainers. No doubt, you need a special set of skills for being a good coach. You must be patient and able to communicate well with other people too. There are boxers who are very smart and skilled but they are not great at training others. Similarly, on the other hand, there are trainers who are themselves not great boxers at all but explain and teach the art to others very proficiently. If you happen to be of the later kind, you might have a future in coaching which is both fun and lucrative.

Therapy for anger

Can boxing help with anger management? After a tiring day at work, there isn’t a better therapy for anger than hitting with full strength your heavy bag. You may experiment with tennis, basketball and running but you won’t ever find a sport which is better for stress relief as compared to boxing. The anger, stress and negative emotions totally fade out after some rounds on your heavy bag or a session of sparring. You turn a lot calmer and friendlier with people after a sweaty and hard work out. No wonder, unlike how a lot of people think, many boxers are actually not violent at all. Can boxing help with depression as well? Again, yes is the answer. There are positive psychological effects of boxing.

 

Background for other sports

Boxing is a great background for MMA but its training can aid you in a lot of non-fighting sports as well. For instance, its footwork is very similar to that in fencing. In both, you step first with your front foot while going forward and first with your back foot while going back. Boxing improves one’s rhythm which is very helpful if one wants to learn dancing as well. Similarly, the ability of generating immense power with your arms is useful in other sports like baseball and golf.

Boxing is cool

Boxers, kick-boxers and MMA fighters are modern gladiators. No wonder they are admired so much. If you mention that you are into boxing, everyone starts showing interest in you and you are asked some questions no matter how stupid those may be. I wonder how hard you can hit those punching power machines if you have worked on the heavy bag. Thus, all people at the bar will be impressed by you. You will look cool.

Earn respect

Boxers are not just admired but also respected and for the right reasons. Your classmates or coworkers or even your boss would reconsider prior to saying a provoking or annoying thing to you.

 

Respect others as well

It is very likely that you would not win every sparring session. On occasions, you would be outclassed. But this is ok. It would teach you the fact that different people possess different skills and talents. So you end up respecting them and their styles a lot more. This inculcates humility which is a very virtuous benefit of boxing for both males and females.

Make new friends

I made a lot of friends at the boxing gym and we still remain in touch with each other. It was very difficult for me to find people in daily life who were passionate about boxing like I was. Almost everyone I knew were least interested in the sweet science. Thus, I could not discuss the last fights with anyone at all. There was no one with whom I could speak about kick*** boxing techniques. This fortunately changed when I stopped merely watching it and, instead, started training it. I found buddies with whom I could talk about boxing, with whom I could box and accompany at boxing events.

Mental strength

Consider a boxer who aims to take revenge of an overwhelming knockout loss. He is perhaps filled with fears but will fight nevertheless. Thus, he is taking a big risk because if he again loses, it would be devastating but in case he wins, he will feel great. This is how you can become mentally strong by facing your fears directly. You may not be currently in a similar situation but at times, even a sparring session with someone more powerful or superior to you is an opportunity for overcoming fears and making yourself mentally stronger.

Core stability

In boxing, you need a good stance. If you keep practicing a lot, your core muscles will be strengthened which improve your posture giving you a healthy back.

Discipline

Boxing inculcates discipline. For progressing in this very tough sport, you must have consistency and a not-giving-up attitude irrespective of how hard and exhausting your exercises may be. You should listen to your trainer and give respect to your partners. You would not find a lot of sports which teach so much discipline.

A wonderful hobby

If you are confused about how to spend your free time, boxing maybe the ideal hobby for you. Don’t forget that it is simply great as a family sport. Many fathers and sons get closer to each other as a result of workout out together.

Withstanding pain

After a couple of sparring sessions, you experience that you are not made of glass at all and can withstand a lot more pain than you perceived earlier. It is not just the physical pain due to punches and exhausting exercises. You also undergo mental pain. Your mind tells you that it is not possible and you should take rest.

Sportsman Spirit

A lot of times, you will be defeated in sparrings. Irrespective of whether you win or lose, true champions do respect their opponent. That is the reason why boxers touch gloves with their sparring partner at the start and end of each session. This is very important not just in sport but in various situations of one’s life as well.

 

Boxing teaches you to be patient

No one can become good at boxing overnight. Everyone needs a lot of time before they get good at it. Boxing may be very exasperating before things start getting smooth. It is not without a lot of hard work that you throw punches using proper technique and see shots being thrown at your face. It demands loads of hours of sparring, shadowboxing and working on your heavy bag. The only key is patience. It takes a lot of time before the coaches notice you and pay more attention. They see many people who commence the journey of boxing but quit soon after. They aim to see your seriousness and so that teaching you advanced techniques besides the fundamental ones is not just wastage of time.

Self-control

There is another kind of patience you require in boxing and that is patience at the ring. With experience, you become more patient and learn how to control yourself. You stop rushing things while fighting which costs amateur fighters defeats. Character building and personality development are also benefits of boxing.

Know your limitations

Until and unless, you don’t push yourself to the limits, you won’t ever discover them. This happens to be the case with a lot of novices. They are not aware of what they are able to do and what they are not able to do simply because they stick to their comfort zones. On the contrary, athletes like boxers know exactly what they are able to do and how they will do it. This knowledge is extremely important especially in emergency situations.

Deal with your own fears

All boxers feel afraid prior to entering the ring. Even a champion like Mike Tyson confessed this fact. Still, it didn’t prevent him from becoming one of the greatest boxers ever. To feel this way is understandable because you are fighting with someone trained to hurt others. So for being proficient at boxing, you must learn how to fight your own fear.

Appreciate the safety

You won’t take your safety for granted after finding yourself in extreme situations. Being in the ring with someone trying to knock you out is certainly such a situation. When you engage yourself in boxing for some time, the everyday problems that worry so many people might seem insignificant to you.

Giving up is not an option

In boxing, you don’t win easily at all. Even the fastest knockouts are a consequence of endless hours of practice at the gym but the tough fights really test you teaching you that you cannot quit at all. Even if they are actually on the losing side, boxers don’t give up on the target of winning which is very difficult. They have firm belief in their coaches, training, preparation and game plan. Most importantly, they always continue to believe in themselves and changing the result of the match.

No need of equipment

Unlike a lot of sports, you can do boxing training anywhere anytime. You can do shadow boxing and conditioning exercises almost whenever you feel like. There is no need of a long list of equipment you must bring along.

Live healthier

As a boxer, you cannot afford to indulge in junk foods, alcohol or drugs if have a sparring session tomorrow. If you don’t happen to be in a good shape, you will be crushed. You have to eat healthier food, sleep rightly and train a lot. Boxing puts on you a positive kind of pressure which makes you live much healthier. Brain training is not the only benefit of boxing. The list is fortunately very long and will entice many aspiring boxers to not give up on their passion at all.
