Lessons From Boxing

I have been working out at home for 3 weeks now. Carla has put together a programe for me that uses all the equipment we have at home, which is a boxing bag and a kettlebell that Emma bought me for my birthday. I was a little skeptical about just how beneficial boxing would be. I assumed at the end of the 6 weeks I would, at the very least have super toned arms!

I assumed wrong. My whole body aches after I have done 10 minutes of boxing, my legs hurt for a few days and obviously my arms also hurt but it’s all good! It is getting a little easier now and I am managing 10 minutes pretty easily.

What lessons have been learnt though?

 

  1. You can not box, not even for 30 seconds without proper boxing gloves. 
  2. It’s not as easy as it looks. My one arm was completely useless those first few days. Besides that though it wasn’t easy to just punch.
  3. It is a great stress reliever.
  4. It is a full body work out. I can feel it all over when I am done. 
  5. It’s fun.
  6. Once you start you don’t want to stop. I could just keep punching!

I never thought that I would enjoy it as much as I am and in many ways it doesn’t really feel like it is exercise at all which makes it easier for me to get started. 

Have you ever done boxing before?
