Common Boxing Workouts

Boxing and MMA workouts aren’t all about striking a bag or getting ready for title bouts; most boxers will tell you that boxing workouts are amongst the most challenging and rewarding you can engage in. In addition to warm-up, cool-down, core, and cardio workouts you can also focus on interval training and punching and footwork techniques. These workouts are high intensity and are designed to condition the entire body while building confidence. Here are just of few of the more common boxing exercises you can experience at our gym:

  • Jumping rope
  • Shadow boxing
  • Heavy bag
  • Speed bag
  • Sparring
  • Weight training
  • Running

Boxing Equipment

Big Al’s supplies a majority of the workout equipment but boxers will be expected to bring their own personal supplies. Most of the equipment you will want to purchase is for your own safety and includes the following:

  • Handwraps- these wrap around the hands to protect the bones in the hands.
  • Gloves- boxing gloves also protect the hands from injury
  • Mouthpiece- mouth and teeth protection is a must if you plan on doing any sparring
  • Headgear- headgear  protects the head and helps prevent cuts
  • Cups- these are used to protect the groin

Boxing and MMA Classes

Big Al’s currently does not provide boxing or MMA group fitness classes but members are permitted to use the facilities as needed. Some of our personal trainers are well versed in self-defense so if you were interested in getting some one-on-one training that would be the way to go. We do however offer an Extreme Box class and a kickboxing with bags class as part of our Diamond Program.
