FIGHTING FIT Boxing on the beach

The same women you see strutting their amazing bodies in lacy bras, panties and tiny string bikinis also frequently pull on their boxing gloves and step into the ring. Th at’s right – some of the top Victoria’s Secret models incorporate boxing into their workout routines. If that’s not enough to convince you to add boxing to your regime, then these tips will have you itching to start sparring on Ibiza’s beaches at sunset. Boxing is a great workout, toning the arms and abs whilst seriously challenging your cardio at the same time. Th e sport is estimated to be approximately 70-80% anaerobic and 20-30% aerobic. Anaerobic means conducting an activity without oxygen, and this form of exercise uses energy sources that are stored in the muscles, rather than depending on oxygen from breathing the air. Anaerobic exercise stresses the muscles at a high intensity for short periods of time.

Interval Fitness Responses

Rather than wasting valuable training time with LSD (long slow distance) running, a fi ghter can make more valuable use of their time by training in a sport-specifi c manner. One of the best ways to condition the body for boxing is through interval training. Intervals consist of intense, sustained running for a set distance or time. Common intervals for boxers consist of short distances: 200, 400, 600 and 800 metres. Amateur boxers fi ght 2-minute bouts, and must be prepared to fi ght hard for the duration of the round. Th e 600-metre interval training closely mimics the anaerobic demands imposed upon the body during an amateur boxing fi ght. Professional fi ghters, on the other hand, fi ght 3-minute rounds,so 800-metre interval training is perfect for them. A general rule of thumb is to run one more interval than the number of rounds you will be boxing. For example, if you are fighting a 4-round bout, it makes sense to run 5 intervals.

Let’s look at a sample routine:

Run a 1-mile warm-up, followed by 6 x 600 metres, and rest for 1 minute between each interval. Then lightly jog for an 800-metre cool down. It is important to run the intervals at an intense pace, which should be maintained for the duration of the interval. Interval training should bring your heart rate to anaerobic levels. Over time, you will gradually lower your heart rate, improve recovery time between intervals and speed up your running times.
