Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow.

Boxing has become a very popular sport for many, and not surprisingly, because it provides the best workout, and challenges many of our senses and capabilities.

Boxing not only helps to build and tone your muscular stature, but also helps you to gain mental strength. It is a great workout to stimulate your mind, body and soul. Not to mention, to burn tons of calories. We are not getting in the ring but here are few of my favourite reasons and why I love to throw some punches:

1. Build strong bones and muscles

Boxing improves the strength and flexibility of all muscle groups in the body. It also helps to develop joints and overall skeletal system.

2. Strengthen the entire body

Because boxing involves sparring, bouncing, ducking, pivoting, punching (and even kicking), it requires repetitive motions of your entire body. These repeated movements provide strength and power especially to your arms, legs and core.

3. Help to relieve stress

Boxing helps to relieve physical and mental stress. Research shows that people who box regularly are more cheerful, getting rid of stress and tension with every punch!

4. Act as an outlet for anger

Boxing provides a good opportunity to release pent up anger. When you kick and punch during boxing, you can let go of anger without blowing up at someone. This can help you relax.
