Boxing Padwork Training – Why it rocks!

Boxing Padwork with Sarah Overall Fitness and Nutrition
Surely everyone must be having a FAB week its impossible not to when the sun is out!
Everyone knows that my favourite form of training is boxing padwork, which given my background as a marathon runner is somewhat surprising. I used to do this myself as a cardio workout to give my body a break from running and found that it was a fantastic full body workout and a fabulous stress reliever.
My first motivation for focusing on this type of training with clients was the fact that virtually every female PT client wanted to get rid of bingo wings and boxing padwork is super effective for toning your arms, but as a training regime it offers so much more than that:

It is is a superior workout combining a perfect blend of cardiovascular and muscle training. It helps you to burn more calories, build more stamina, and tone more muscles in a boxing workout session than you will with any other training method.

When compared with other types of training,  boxing padwork is the best full body workout. Running and cycling effect  little on the muscles above the waist but boxing works both the upper and lower body and core.  As it uses many muscle groups, it is less likely to cause overuse injuries.

The stop start nature of the training is an excellent form of interval training.  The rest periods allow you to work at extremely high intensities which improves cv fitness quickly and effectively.   Intense exercise triggers the release of feel-good hormones called endorphins, which leave you feeling happy, confident and less stressed.

So you will be stronger, fitter, able to maintain or reach a healthy body composition, relaxed and happy!  I will add, that the combination of different types of exercise in bootcamp classes also give this effect.
