Taking the Routine Out of Your Routine

Boxing workouts are rooted in repetition.  By repeating a movement over and over, it becomes more natural, more instinctual and reactions start to become second nature.

Creating the nuero-pathways in your brain, that let your subconscious take over so that you simply react, can be monotonous at times…even downright boring.  So why not throw an entirely different type of boxing-focused workout into your routine once in a while to mix things up? It keeps you on your toes, forces you to think, adapt and will challenge both your mind and body in new ways.

If you agree that it’s time to shake things up a little, here is one way to do that:

Make it a Double

The double end bag can be a frustrating piece of equipment to use for many reasons, but there are also as many benefits, if not more, for incorporating it into your workout routine.  If it’s time to pick up the pace of your workout, then hit the switch on the timer and double your efforts on this classic piece of equipment.

How’s It Hanging?

Walk into any gym and you will see a variety of bags, hung in different ways, from varying heights, at a wide range of tension levels and anchor points.  Most are mounted or anchored without much thought about anything more than being sure they are secure.  In actuality the height at which you hang your bag and what you use to hang it with may be playing more of a role in your training than you never realized.
