What is Cardio Boxing?
Warming up is essential for preparing the body for the intense workout ahead. Stretching, calisthenics, and light cardio exercises gradually raise the heart rate. The warm-up phase helps to prevent injuries and ensures that participants are physically prepared for the intense training to follow.
Bag Work and Pad Work
Bag work and pad work involve striking heavy bags or focus mitts held by an instructor or partner. This part of the cardio boxing class allows participants to practice and perfect various boxing techniques, including punches, hooks, jabs, and uppercuts. Bag work and pad work improve muscle strength while honing precision and coordination, as participants learn to control their movements and power.
Partner drills are an integral aspect of the cardio boxing class as they teach essential boxing skills such as combinations, defense, and footwork. By working with a partner, class members can simulate real boxing scenarios and engage in controlled sparring sessions. This fosters discipline, concentration, and the ability to react swiftly to an opponent’s movements.
