As an amateur boxer in the early ages of training, I am always looking for ways to optimize what I am doing and improve overall technique. Here is an interesting article about HIIT on the bag, which I have definitely noticed more instructors incorporating into classes. Enjoy!
I love to run, and have always been a runner. A few months back I had a weird hip flexor injury (which is finally healed) but really made me reevaluate my training. My weekly routine includes running, boxing, yoga, and conditioning, but I have been really careful since I started training again, because I want to avoid not only the injury I had, but just over use in general. I run between 4-6 miles every other day, incorporating sprints, stairs, and shadowboxing. I have also added some of the moves in this article, which seem to be helping not only make me faster and more agile. I hope this also helps all my runner friends out there!
