Amateur National Womens Boxing Champion shows how she keeps her abs flat, tight and fit. As you know, boxers need abs of steel. Get a Flat tummy by adding these exercises to your workouts. These are not for beginners. Strengthen your abs with a basic plank and the bicycle before trying these 3 ab exercises for a flatter stomach. Oh ya, eat lean!
Workout Training AB Session:
sit ups 25 reps (yes sit ups work, go down slow and keep your chin looking over your knees on bottom. When you land down slowly keep your chin inch off chest and shoulder blades on mat, don’t let your head go back flat on mat, KEEP your abs engaged in a crunch position. Ya, ya hip flexors engaged but they work.)
sit ups with twist both sides 25 reps ( hands behind head, fingers on head behind ears, not locked…wide elbows sit up tall and twist right elbow over left knee and left elbow over right knee, go back to center and begin to roll down slow fighting gravity on vertebrae at a time.)
add the above exercises in video: perform 10-50 reps of each depending on your fitness level. Leg flutters would be up and down with both feet and would be considered 1 rep. I’d recommend performing leg flutters with hands under your butt. You can peform this circuit 1-3x and 3 days a week
Many women who lose weight fast with me stick to a lean diet, run 3-5 days a week and train with me at least 2 days/week. A majority of their workout consist of boxing. No, not like 98% of the fitness trainers who just stick out their mitts and say I’m a boxing trainer. They actually learn real boxing with real technique.
Unless your trainer actually steps in the ring and sparrs with proboxers than I’ll guarantee they really don’t know real boxing. I say all of this because to get the full affect of a boxing workout you have to use your whole body when punching. A punch starts from your feet to your hips and up to the final delivery. One punch actually utilizes your legs, core, back, shoulders and arms. So, the key to getting in shape with boxing is to learn and practice real technique.
Learning the correct boxing technique will burn 100x more calories plus you’ll enjoy boxing workouts so much more everyday.
No you don’t have to get in the ring to reap the benefits but you should learn the correct form. This also keeps you safe from injury: wrist, elbows, shoulder and hands. Always wrap your wrist and hands with hand wraps. Try to get a bag thats soft. A heavy bag that’s 50-80 lbs is fine. Below is Amanda who is a National Amateur Champion who has promise to be a national contender on the pro circuit in the future. I had her perform some technique on a heavy bag that you can use yourself.
A basic boxing workout will look like this for those who are just starting:
Spot reduction can’t be done with just exercises. However, thru clean dieting, a good fitness plan, consistency and healthy metabolism a change in a trouble area can be possible.
For example, Like most women. They want to focus on just legs and butt. ( I get this question at least 3x per week). So, depending on their body type, medical history etc… they need to stay consistent on a program that targets these areas. The fundamentals are the same unless they are genetically gifted and just look at a weight and start transforming…for the majority of women it breaks down to:
Calorie expenditure greater than calorie intake.
Per day: 2-3 Lean Proteins (2-3 ounces), 2 Greens, 2 Veggies (root veggies are great.), 6-8 ounces water, 1-2 fruits (blueberries are in my opinion the best) and a complex carb for intense workouts (ex: 1/2 cup roasted sweet potatoes in coconut oil)
2 days Whole body cardio Training (kickboxing, boxing, zumba, boot camps)
2 days resistance and body weight training on focus area
Example of a focus area (leg and butt) training session:Try this out at your own risk. As you know always seek medical advice before starting any exercise routine.Beginners: perform 15 seconds Intermediate: perform 30 seconds Fit girl: perform 60 seconds
