Boxing is all the hype right now. With a fighter like Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm and all that cash Floyd Mayweather have, it’s bound to be so. But so what? What are you ladies gotta do with all that?
The real reason um even talking about this to you ladies is a cause, it a High Intensity Interval Training. It beats around every muscle your body has, losing fat all over the body. Besides, these HIIT (it’s pronounced hit) burn about 35% more calories than your average slow paced exercise.
You’ll see girls doing reps after reps for hours while humming to a song. You’ll get the result way faster than her with a 35% added bonus. And that’s why boxing workout for women is the real hype.
Now let’s plan out a routine for you……………………
Boxing Workout Routine for Women
Here’s the set of exercises you can do
Warming up is really important. It heats up your muscles, loosens it up and makes it all the more flexible. It reduces the probability of getting injured significantly.
The easiest and efficient way of doing this is skipping or jumping. Keep on skipping for three whole minutes, if you can’t then do it as long as you can.
And if you’re jumping then do the same while jumping at about the same height that you’d have to do for skipping.
It’s suggested that you do about 12 reps of this on a regular basis if you’re looking to get in shape.
If you’re not already familiar with this move then lemme guide you through it. Keep your elbows attached to your ribs on the sides. Your fists should be right under your chin such that you’re taking a fighting stance.
Now, put your right leg forward and keep on getting your hips lower. Once your knees reach 90 degrees get back up. Now repeat the same procedure but with the other leg.
You’ll have to do this in a bit of different style. I’ll walk you through it.
Stand at ease, like those army men. Now, get your hands in the same position as you had to do for lunges. And now, pull up one of your knees and get it in 90 degrees, while you throw a straight punch with the other hand.
Keep changing the sides and do about 20 reps of this.
This too will be different than your everyday sit ups. Yeah, you guessed it right, you’ll have to be punching while you’re doing it.
First, lie down, now touch your cheeks with your fist. Now get up, like you had to do for sit up. Once you’re up, throw a punch. Lie back down, get up but throw the punch with the other hand.
You can’t do too many of these at the beginning but do as many as you can. 12 of these a day will suffice.
This too will have punches in it.
Listen carefully, stretch your legs to take about two arms’ length gap. Get your fist in fighting stance. Now get your hip down to make a deep squat, push up. Now throw a hook.
If you’re throwing a left hook, bend your hips and torso counter clockwise. Imagine there’s somebody in front of you and swing him a punch.
Now repeat the procedure but now do a right hook. Keep alternating and do about 20 of these.
Doing this one is gonna be really tough at the beginning. But it’ll get easier after a while.
You’ll first have to lay down flat. After that get your arms in fighting stance, just like you’ve done a couple of time now. Next, you’ll be getting your chin as high up as possible. Now, throw a straight punch towards your feet. Keep doing it but keep on changing your punching hands.
Doing 12 of these a day will suffice but doing too much might end up getting you abs.
This here is a perfect routine for ladies who’re looking to get their boxing mojos on and get themselves into that summer body. It’s not all that tough and y’all won’t be needing any equipment. So, no gym. It’s a budget and logical choice. Logical because you’ll be putting stress on every muscle of your body.
