Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2014 -- We’re always looking for the workout routine that will transform the body into supermodel worthy form. While this transformation is a combination of diet and exercise programs, it’s worth noting that many models (specifically the Victoria’s Secret models) have begun taking up boxing as a way to challenge their physique and improve appearance.
Boxing is an all-over workout program, incorporating both strength training exercises through muscle engagement, and cardiovascular activity with constant movement. It also targets other important areas of fitness including balance, agility, and coordination. In fact, it’s so productive that those who engage can expect to burn anywhere between 200-400 calories per half hour of exercise.
Due to this high calorie burn, boxing is also an effective way to burn fat. Coupled with a nutritious controlled diet, the body begins to burn fat when it’s run out of nutrients and carbohydrates to burn for energy. Anaerobic workouts require more energy, and so while the body is burning away fat it’s also increasing strength and boosting metabolism to comply with physical demands.
As for toning, since boxing is an all-over body workout one can expect to tone arms, thighs, and abdominal muscles all in the same training sessions. Rotation in the hips works the core, those powerful punches tone the arms and shoulders, and the constant movement in bobs and weaves helps tone the thighs, glutes, and hips faster than 30 minutes on a treadmill.
In addition to the physical benefits, boxing is also effective at blasting away stress. Taking out the aggression built up at the office on a punching bag can help release adrenaline that builds up during the day and make a person feel calmer afterward. Exercise increases the release of endorphins, and so those who box or do any kind of physical activity are happier overall.
Those looking for a challenge or change to their current workout routine should give boxing a try in the form of a class or some lessons from a trainer. The rewards will be a more toned body and a more relaxed mind after a few rounds with the bag.
