Dad Get Fit Blog: How To Box



Boxing…. How hard could it be?


Let me tell
you, I have found a whole new respect for the sport of boxing. The conditioning
and exercise program is a lot harder than I thought. Growing up, my childhood
idol was Muhammad Ali and he made the sport look so graceful and easy with his
jabs, counter punches and ‘rope a dope’ routine in the ring. After my first 1-
hour workout, I realized two things:


1.
I’m
out of shape


2.
I
need to work on my boxing technique


This sport
is definitely for the person who is going to dedicate time and effort in perfecting
their technique and boxing efficiency. There is a lot to learn on boxing
technique and I was fortunate to get a firsthand experience from my friends at
Poway Martial Arts, (PowayMartialArts.com). Barry Barker is the owner and his
facility has a variety of classes including Kempo Karate, MMA-Mixed Martial
Arts, Boxing and Gracie Ju Jitsu. All classes are available for all ages and
skill level. The facility is family friendly. Barry teamed me up with his
Boxing Instructor, ‘Brady’ and the rest was history…


Getting Started.


It’s
important understanding the proper technique to boxing. From footing to the
variety of punching patterns; you need to know how to be efficient or else you
will burn out quickly during the workout. Having an instructor give you the
proper punching technique will make a difference in your workout. After my
hands were wrapped and my gloves were on, I was ready for the challenge of the
boxing workout. The 1-hour workout program was broken down to do the following:


15-munite
cardio warm up, boxing technique


15-munites
high intensity boxing exercises


15-minute,
intermittent boxing and cardio


15-munite
warm down, stretches


As the video
can attest to the experience, you are going to burn a lot of calories and sweat
a lot. Boxing Fitness classes can burn as much as 800 plus calories per
session. My experience was positive and the guys (and girls) in the class were
great. My instructor Brady was a great ambassador to the world of Boxing
Fitness. He kept our class motivated and going strong the full 1 – hour
session.


A Boxing
Fitness program would be a great addition for any Dad looking to mix a new
fitness routine
into the week… Give it a try or look at this other Home Exercise Progams


Get Fit Dad: Diet tips of the month


During the
month, Get Fit Dad is busy watching the daytime TV shows and stumbles across
some useful trivia to share with our readers. This month, ‘Dr. Oz’ talked about the diet health benefits of the following:


Sauerkraut:
There are good
bacteria in sauerkraut and this helps your digestion. Dads need to increase healthy
bacteria as we age and eating Sauerkraut once a week will make a difference in
our digestion. Try to use Sauerkraut as a ‘lettuce substitute’ in your next
sandwich. The crunch is there and it goes great with mustard… And of course you
can counter all that healthy eating with a good old Hot Dog with Sauerkraut!

Vitamin D


Vitamin D: Vitamin D is important for our bone
density and we’re not getting enough of it. Believe it or not, less people are
drinking Milk these days and for us Dads that’s concerning. However, most
people don’t even know that Vitamin D is not found in Milk; it’s just added as
a supplement to milk. Add this vitamin to your daily routine and keep your bone
health. You can find a variety of vitamin D supplements at your grocery store
and Get Fit Dad recommends at least 1000 iu’s of Vitamin D3 per day….
