Boxing can be a great workout and you don't need to be Floyd Mayweather to be able to do it. Try our boxing fitness workout that anyone can do and is sure to get your heart rate up and send your fitness level through the roof.

Warm Up

As always, doing a proper and thorough warm up is the key to following through with a great workout. Spend 30 seconds jogging on the spot, then do 30 seconds of fast feet (sprinting on the spot), and repeat this two or three times. 

Next, do 10 arm circles on each arm - both forwards and backwards - to warm up your shoulders. Finally, do 10 torso twists to warm up your core and back.

For the main set of this workout, you will need a pair of boxing gloves and a punch bag. If you do not have this equipment available, you can punch the air.
