If you’re battling with your inner conscience about whether or not to begin exercising, don’t feel alone. This is an internal conversation that the majority of the world goes through at some stage or other in their lives, some overcome the voice of doubt whilst others let sleeping dogs lie. For the latter, the thought of breaking up the routines in their lives and replacing it with back-breaking work in the gym is all too much.
In many cases, you’ll find that this leads to some form of self-loathing given that a reluctance to get up off the sofa and get active triggers a voice inside us that begins to label us as lazy. You can justify almost any decision in life if you try hard enough and that’s exactly what we do to counter that resentful voice from within. But the truth is, you have so much to gain by taking the plunge and diving headfirst into the world of exercise. In particular, there are a plethora of benefits that you will enjoy when you take up boxing, and best of all, you don’t really need to combine any other form of exercise as it will give you everything you need.
First off, boxing is fun. Many people can be put off by the monotony of lifting weights or running, and that is perfectly understandable. Boxing, however, is far from boring, and will provide you with a constant and evolving challenge throughout your workout. Whether it be shadow boxing or hitting the bag, a combination of jab-cross-hook-cross will have your mind just as engaged as your body.
