Boxing against a bag is a great cardiovascular exercise, a great energy purge, improves agility and strength, and can help express some rage. Whether you box against a bag, or against a sparring partner, this is a great way to increase coordination too. Boxing is basically aggressive dancing, if you do it right and have the right playlist.
Whether your day job is with Ralph Lauren or Side Bet Sport Fishing Charters, work stress is hard to release. So many of us take our work stress straight home with us and let it live in our homes and bodies. Exercising before going home is my approach to leaving my stress out of my house and getting it out of my body. Boxing allows for an energy release as well as an emotional one.
