I have always loved the sweet science of boxing. When I was in high school, Mike Tyson was wreaking havoc in the heavy weight division and it was a sight to see. This was, of course, pre-MMA and Ultimate fighting.
A couple of years into college I trained for a short time at an old boxing gym before it was a cool workout. It was an amazing way to train and the results were awesome! Jumping rope, hitting the heavy bag and speed bag, sparring for 3 minute rounds and just the constant movement will get you in great shape. You don’t see too many boxers carrying extra pounds. If you are looking for a new way to train, check out any of the boxing clubs that are now the way to go!
