Because of its scalable difficulty, learning boxing is not just a good workout – although it is certainly a professional. Boxing is great too, because if you box (at least properly) you really are tilt do something else – or think of something else – than boxing. No social isolation, no cabin fever, no fear of economic collapse. In a fight, a spiraling thought that gets you mentally out of the ring is also exactly when you are slapped in the face.
Sure, a heavy bag at home might not hit you back, but the feeling lingers: Boxing is the ideal workout for reducing stress without clogging that headspace with thoughts. Everlast is making this headspace area more accessible with a huge offering on its Powercore booth: $ 21
This stand fulfills two functions: The double bag and the stand have both a heavy bag and a speedbag and offer you and your workout a well-rounded kick in the ass. The 80-pound bag is the best for building strength. The resistance to straights, hooks and upper cuts makes the core-stabilizing muscles look tattered.
As far as the speedbag is concerned, there is nothing else like it to optimize shoulder strength and challenge your hand-eye coordination. The platform is adjustable so you can cut it to the height that is most comfortable for you. Once you get the rhythm to hit a speedbag, it acts as a meditative exercise. Breathe, hit, hop, repeat.
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to box but didn’t know where – or how – to start, use this time to build a home gym. Plenty of gyms offer free online tutorials and classes if you’re new to the scene: Gloveworx has an arm circle tutorial, and Everybody Fights provides an overview of how to hit a heavy bag. Plus, both live streaming workouts are on YouTube and Instagram while the gyms are closed outside. Hey, there is no time to learn how to fight in the middle of a pandemic.
