Welcome to Day Eight of The November 30/30 Challenge.
Today's activity highlight is Boxing!
I read a wonderful quote about boxing once and I've never forgotten it!
"To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other".
Don't you just love it?
For women, boxing is most often done in the form of an exercise class. Don't get me wrong, there are some women who choose to go head to head in the boxing ring, and if you're one of those women, I applaud you!
But as I've said before, I'm scared of doing anything where I might hurt myself, so taking another women on in the ring is not for me.
So, an exercise class it is.
Boxing is definitely a social sport and classes usually involve sparring with others. Most classes have roughly 15 to 20 people, with a lot of emphasis placed on pad work. If you're worried that you're not strong enough to do one of these classes, you needn't be. It is all about technique, rather than strength, and most classes will teach you how to punch properly, which is really important to reduce the risk of injury to your wrists.
Some of the benefits of Boxing are:
Full body workout.
Involves both cardio and strength training.
Increase in muscle strength and tone.
So go punch someone today!
Well, you know what I mean.
