Glute kicks

To perform glute kicks correctly, start by standing up straight in a boxing stance; feet hip-width apart, arms slightly bent at your sides.

They involve swinging one leg forward and backward in a controlled manner while keeping the core engaged and hips stable. To perform the exercise, stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, arms outstretched for balance. 

Swing one of your legs forward across the midline of your body, then swing it back until you feel the tension in your glutes and hamstrings before returning to the starting position.

Hip circles

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and extend your arms out to either side with palms facing down. Start by circling your hips clockwise, then counterclockwise. 

Make sure you keep your legs straight throughout the exercise and avoid moving your lower back or shoulders while doing it.

Crunches (Duration: 3 x 67 seconds Rest: 20 seconds)

Crunches are one of the most effective exercises to strengthen the core and abdominal muscles. They involve lying flat on your back, with your hands clasped behind your head and knees bent. 

To perform the exercise correctly, you need to raise your shoulders off the floor while keeping your lower back in contact with it. As you lift yourself up, exhale deeply and curl without lifting your upper body.

Lower yourself back down towards the ground while inhaling deeply. Repeat this movement 2 more times until you start to feel a burn in the abdominal area. 

Remember that proper form is essential to ensure maximum muscle engagement and reduce any potential risk of injury, so focus on using slow controlled movements throughout each rep! Sweating it out with crunches can help strengthen and tone those abs quickly!

Burpees (Duration: 3 x 67 seconds Rest: 20 seconds)

Burpees are a full-body exercise that can boost your metabolic rate and increase strength. To do a burpee, start in a standing position with feet shoulder-width apart. Squat down, placing hands on the ground outside of your feet. Jump both legs back so you are in a plank position. 

Bend elbows and lower chest to the ground, then push up to return to the plank position. Jump both legs forward and come back into a squat before jumping straight up into the air with arms raised above your head for maximum height. Land softly and repeat the process!

Burpees are an effective way to jumpstart any workout routine because they target almost every muscle group while also getting your heart rate up quickly for cardiovascular benefits. Plus, they require no equipment, which makes them great when you’re on the go or don’t have access to gym equipment or weights.

Clapping push-ups (Duration: 3 x 67 seconds Rest: 20 seconds)

Clapping push-ups is an intense exercise that requires strength and power. To perform a clapping push-up, begin in the standard push-up position on your hands and toes with your back straight, abdominals tight, and shoulders over wrists. Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor.

Push yourself up explosively, thrusting your hands off the ground so they come together above you as you reach full extension at the top of the movement. 

Immediately lower yourself back into starting position to complete one rep. Clapping push-ups will help increase muscle strength in the arms, chest, shoulders and core while also improving explosive power and coordination.

Jumping lunges (Duration: 3 x 67 seconds Rest: 20 seconds)

Jumping lunges is a great move for those looking to build strength, stability, and endurance. It requires the use of both your upper and lower body muscles while incorporating coordination, agility, and balance.

To perform this exercise correctly, start in a standing position with your feet hip-width apart. Take a long stride forward with your right foot while lowering your body into a lunge position by bending both knees at 90 degrees angle. 

Make sure that your front knee does not go over the toes of the front foot and that the back knee hovers just above the ground. Push off from the floor with your left leg as you propel yourself up into an explosive jump. 

As you jump switch legs midair so that when you land it will be in a reverse lunge position with your left leg being forward this time. Repeat this movement for desired reps or duration of time before switching sides again.

Keep in mind to maintain proper form throughout each repetition by keeping core tight, chest lifted, and back flat while avoiding any arching of the low back during landing phase of each rep. 

This exercise can be modified by reducing intensity by skipping jumping portion altogether if needed or adding weights such as hand weights or kettlebells for extra challenge if desired.

Mountain Climbers (Duration: 3 x 67 seconds Rest: 20 seconds)

Mountain Climbers are a bodyweight exercise that can be easily added to any workout. To do mountain climbers, start by getting into a high plank position with your hands planted firmly on the ground and your feet together. 

From this starting position, lift one foot off the ground and drive it towards your chest as you simultaneously bring your opposite knee forward towards your chest. As you move each leg forward, keep your core tight to help stabilize your body.

After driving both knees inwards at the same time, return them back to their starting position and repeat quickly for 30 seconds or more for an intense cardio workout. 

Mountain climbers work all major muscle groups including the arms, glutes, quads, and shoulders while also providing a great cardiovascular workout. 

To increase the intensity of this exercise try increasing speed or adding in dynamic variations like alternating shoulder taps or hip dips as you bring each knee up towards the chest.

Cooldown (5 minutes)

Quad stretch (2 x 25 Seconds)

Start by standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend one knee and grab your ankle with your hand on that side. Pull your heel towards your glutes while keeping the other leg straight. 

Continue to pull until you feel a comfortable stretch in the quadriceps muscle of the bent leg. Hold this position for 30 seconds before releasing it and repeating with the other leg. 

Make sure to keep both hips facing forward during this exercise – avoid twisting or shifting them as you move into position and hold it there while stretching!

Hamstring stretch (2 x 25 Seconds)

Hamstring stretches are an important part of any exercise routine, especially a one hour long boxing workout. To maximize their effectiveness and avoid injury, it is important to understand how to stretch the hamstrings correctly.

To begin, sit on the ground with your legs in front of you and your feet flat on the floor. Keeping your back straight and core engaged, slowly lean forward until you feel a mild tension in the back of your thighs. 

Hold that position for 30 seconds before returning to start position. It is also important not to bounce while stretching as this can cause injury or strain.

Butterfly stretch (2 x 25 Seconds)

The butterfly stretch is an excellent exercise to incorporate into a boxing workout as it helps to increase the range of motion in the hips. 

To begin, sit on the floor with your legs bent and your feet together. Gently press your elbows against the inside of your knees and use them to apply pressure to open up the inner thighs.

To deepen the stretch, lean forward and keep applying pressure with your elbows until you feel a gentle pull in your inner thighs. 

Make sure not to push too hard or overextend yourself beyond what is comfortable. Hold this position for 30 seconds before releasing and attempting again if necessary.

Triceps stretch (2 x 25 Seconds)

To begin, stand up straight and reach your right arm over your head. Bend at the elbow and use your left hand to gently pull on the right elbow until you feel a gentle stretch in the back of your upper arm. 

Hold for 30 seconds before releasing and repeating on the other side. Be sure not to hold this stretch for too long as it can cause discomfort or strain muscles if done incorrectly or excessively. You should also avoid bouncing movements when doing this stretch as this can lead to injury.

When performing a triceps stretch, it’s important that you keep a neutral spine by avoiding any arching of the lower back or rounding of the shoulders during the movement. 

It’s also important that you don’t overextend yourself; listen to your body and adjust accordingly if needed – try using a wall or chair for support if needed. 

Finally, breathe evenly throughout each repetition; breathwork helps relax tight muscles and improve flexibility while stretching out muscle tissue safely and effectively.

Shoulder stretch (2 x 25 Seconds)

It is essential to stretch your shoulder muscles before and after training to prevent injuries and ensure you get the most out of your workout. To perform a shoulder stretch, start by standing straight with feet hip-width apart. 

Reach your left arm up in front of you, keeping the elbow straight and palm facing down. Use your right hand to gently pull on your left elbow until you feel a slight tension in the shoulder muscle.

Hold for 30 seconds then slowly release back down as you take a few deep breaths. Repeat on the other side with the right arm going up first this time so that both shoulders are equally stretched out. 

Be sure not to overstretch or bounce while doing this exercise as it can be damaging to your muscles if done incorrectly. Make sure to use proper form throughout and keep breathing steadily while stretching for best results.

Seated spinal twist (2 x 25 Seconds)

A seated spinal twist is a pose that stretches the abdominal muscles and spine. To perform the seated spinal twist, start by sitting up tall in a comfortable cross-legged position. 

Place both hands on either side of your body with your palms facing down. Twist to one side bringing your right elbow to the outside of your left knee while keeping your head and chest upright.

Hold this pose for 30 seconds before switching sides, bringing your left elbow to the outside of your right knee. As you exhale, focus on pressing into the floor with both hands as you rotate further into the twist. 

Make sure that when twisting, avoid compressing or crunching in the lower back area – keep it soft and relaxed instead! Do not over-twist; stop where you feel resistance but still feel comfortable in the posture. 

When finished with both sides, slowly sit up straight again and enjoy the release throughout your core muscles!

Is a 60-minute workout enough to build muscle?

A sixty-minute workout is more than enough to build muscle when it is an intense one. This can be especially true with a boxing workout. Boxing requires you to use multiple muscles at once, and the intensity of the movements can help you build strength and increase your muscular endurance quickly. 

Additionally, boxing combines both aerobic and anaerobic exercise which will further aid in muscle growth as well as burning fat.

During a 60-minute session, you should aim to do a combination of shadowboxing, bag work, and conditioning in order to target all areas of your body while also keeping the intensity high throughout the entire session. 

Furthermore, incorporating exercises such as squats or pushups during the rest periods can further help improve your strength and conditioning levels even further. 

Through this type of intense workout regimen, one can definitely see improvements in their physical fitness level over time without spending hours on end in the gym every week.

Boxing is a great way to lose weight as it combines cardio and strength training, making it an effective full-body workout. It can also provide a mental challenge while burning calories

Boxing requires you to use your entire body, including your arms and legs, in order to perform various punches and combinations. This helps you build muscle mass which helps burn even more calories during the workout. 

Additionally, boxing is considered one of the most intense forms of exercise and can help you reach your fat loss goals faster than other types of workouts.

When done correctly, boxing can be an excellent way to burn calories and build lean muscle mass while providing intense cardiovascular benefits. 

During an hour long boxing session, you can expect to burn anywhere from 200-1000 calories depending on the intensity level used throughout the workout.

Not only does this help with weight loss but it also increases aerobic capacity due to the large amount of oxygen used in the workout. 

Furthermore, boxing works all major muscles groups at once with its combination exercises so you get a total body workout in just one session!

Is 60 minutes of boxing a good workout?

Boxing is an intense, full body workout that can provide you with both physical and mental benefits. An hour of boxing is great for increasing your fitness levels; it improves your aerobic capacity, muscular strength and endurance. 

It also helps to burn calories quickly – a person weighing around 80kgs could expect to burn up to 250-500 calories in one hour of boxing! Boxing requires quick movements and complex combinations which not only increases heart rate but also engages the core and upper body muscles more than other forms of exercise.

As a result, it helps to tone muscles while improving balance, coordination, agility and flexibility. Additionally, since boxing involves punching bags or pads rather than another human opponent, it is a much safer form of exercise for beginners compared to other contact sports such as kickboxing or Muay Thai. 

Finally, the physical demands of an intense one-hour boxing session can be very mentally rewarding – you will find yourself feeling energised and motivated after every session!

Is boxing good for losing belly fat?

Boxing is a great way to lose belly fat due to its high-intensity interval training (HIIT) approach. Boxing workouts are incredibly intense and require the use of both upper and lower body muscles. 

This type of workout helps increase your heart rate, which in turn boosts your metabolism, which can help you burn off more calories and excess fat around your midsection. Additionally, boxing is an effective way to work out because it is functional fitness. 

Not only does it target specific muscle groups like those around the midsection, but it also engages other muscles in the process through core stabilization exercises that help condition and strengthen your entire body while burning fat.

For best results when trying to lose belly fat with boxing, aim for a one hour long session at least twice per week. During this time you should focus on both cardio drills as well as strength training moves such as jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and burpees. 

All of these movements will target different areas of your body while also helping you improve overall endurance so you can keep going for longer periods of time during each session. 

Additionally, incorporating punches into the routine will help tone up the abdominal area even further by utilizing those muscles more intensely than ever before!
