Boxing workouts are not for the faint of heart—but they are for anyone who wants to get stronger, burn some calories, and let out some frustrations. Obviously your arms put in serious work, but during a boxing session, your entire body and mind have to get involved. That translates to plenty of sweat and postworkout soreness in muscles you never knew existed.
Fitness lovers everywhere (and models like Gisele Bündchen and Adriana Lima) are throwing on gloves and slipping into the boxing ring for some fancy footwork and adrenaline-packed punches. That higher demand for Rocky-worthy vibes means more studios are popping up, including New York City newcomer Rumble. There, participants go through a 45-minute boxing-inspired workout that helps build strength with an array of tools, from dumbbells to signature water-filled training bags.
“Boxing’s mega empowering, challenging, and scalable for all levels of fitness,” Noah Neiman, celebrity trainer and cofounder of Rumble Boxing, tells SELF. Another reason he loves the workout: It’s unparalleled for stress relief.
The full-body workout, which can burn 200 to 500 calories in just 30 minutes, improves your fitness in multiple ways, Kirk Campbell, M.D., sports medicine physician at NYU Langone Medical Center, tells SELF. “Boxing requires endurance, strength, speed, and agility, which means incorporating it regularly into your routine can produce major gains.”
Bob and weave your way to fit using Neiman’s workout below. All you need is a pair of 5- to 8-pound dumbbells and a kick-ass attitude.
