What boxing gave me, one year in

Rob Speed Bag

For more than a year, my workout combined shadow boxing, heavy bag-, speed bag-, double end bag-work, and sparring. My coach also pushed me to do core exercises, like use my stomach muscles to push a medicine ball up the corner of a ring. Or from the same position, I’d toss a medicine ball up so it bounces off the corner and crashes down on my belly.

During this time I got a few black eyes. Literally and figuratively. I’ve also had some great success in my life outside of boxing. Boxing made me look at myself in a different way and make changes—changes I like. I’ll keep doing it. What are you doing?

    Congrats on your boxing journey, mate. I have been doing boxing workouts steady for over a year and a half and I will never do any other type of workout again. The intensity, coupled with the nostalgia can’t be matched by any so-called “modern day” workout.
