Get Fighting Fit With This 30 Minute Boxing Inspired Workout

It’s been a fair few months since I’ve been able to make it to any of the London fitness studios that dish out the sweat with boxing inspired workouts. Ironically, I last hit up Kobox at an event with Sure deodorant where I spent far too long trying to figure out how to wrap my hand wraps. I did also become quite the fan of a Flykick class but now I’m not attending lectures anymore, it’s a bit out of the way for me (and expensive to fund when you’re not working!). Anyway, as a fitness professional, I’ve taught my fair share of boxfit and boxercise classes so the hardest part of creating this 30 minute boxing fitness workout was trying to limit it to just those 30 minutes!

The Basic Skills Of Boxing

It’s definitely easier to go into the basics of boxing either using video or in real life situations so if you have no experience at all, hit up Youtube to learn the four punches used in this workout: jab, cross, hook and uppercut. I’ve kept this workout super simple so once you’ve nailed those moves you’re good to go.

There are also plenty of good boxing inspired classes you can check out to pick up the moves. If you’re in London check out FlyKick, Kobox or 1Rebel for starters. Alternatively you can find a PT (like myself) who knows a few moves or two, then your sessions don’t always have to be focused around indoor equipment once you have some gloves and pads.

Equipment You Will Need:

Talking of equipment, for this specific workout you will need a punch bag, boxing gloves, wraps (optional), mat and skipping rope. I’ve linked to some options below if you need to pick anything up… or you know, get a cuter pair of gloves.

These Rounds Make Up Your Boxing Inspired Workout

These Rounds Make Up Your Boxing Inspired Workout

Get your timer ready! The boxing round, round one, is 6 minutes long. You repeat the 3 one minute combinations twice, once with your left leg leading and once with your right leg leading. That will change which arm becomes your jab and which arm becomes your cross, yeah?!

Round One: Boxing (6 minutes)

  • Jab cross 
  • Jab, cross, left hook
  • Jab, cross, left hook, right uppercut 
  • REPEAT

Rounds two and three are both 4 minutes each in total. Take one minute recovery between each round. A little less if you can hack it, a little more if you need it.

Round Two: Skipping / Bodyweight (4 minutes)

Round Three: Core (4 minutes)

  • Sit ups
  • Toe touches 
  • Plank 
  • Commandos / plank walks

Your boxing fitness workout can look like this:

  • Round one (6 minutes)
  • 1 min recovery
  • Round two (4 minutes)
  • 1 min recovery
  • Round one (6 minutes)
  • 1 min recovery
  • Round three (4 minutes)
  • 1 min recovery
  • Round one (6 minutes)
  • TOTAL: 29 minutes

The Mirafit Punch Bag & Base

I took delivery of the Mirafit Punch Bag & Base along with the 3in1 Soft Plyo Jump Box not too long ago but have made full use of them as they currently reside in my living room.

The punch bag when put together with the base is just a bit smaller than me at 156cm (I’m 5ft 5″ / 164cm). You fill the base up using water, or sand which makes it heavy and helps to keep it in place when you strike it. The first time I tried it out was working out along to a Les Mills class on their on demand system. It definitely made the class a bit more effective with the added resistance rather than just using shadow boxing. It was also great for practicing kicks on, and being made of foam means that if you don’t quite get the right angle as you get to grips with the moves, it doesn’t sting too much.

The material it’s made of is super easy to just wipe clean after you’ve poured your sweat all over it! When it’s filled up it weighs around 80kg and 20.5kg when empty. At at around £80 (at the time of writing this post) it’s cheaper than your months gym membership…

p.s Safety always comes first. If you are new to exercise ensure you seek advice from your GP. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, wear appropriate clothing and carry out drills in a suitable space. Technique is paramount, and nothing should hurt. Should you experience pain, discomfort, nausea, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath etc, STOP and consult your GP.
