Fitness Pros Try Boxing

Fitness Pros Try Boxing

– [Instructor] Breathing. – Oh, gosh. I think it’s terrifying. – I have no experience in boxing. – Alright, five seconds.
Move when I say go. Plant your feet. Hit me one, two – Aw, I gotta do that? – And … Go! – My experience with
boxing is very limited. – C.J.’s gonna make sure that
none of this gets destroyed. – I don’t wanna mess this up. – Plant your feet. Jab, cross, jab, cross. (laughs) – I got my ass kicked in pilates, so this is going to be
challenging as well. – I really hope I don’t pass out. – [Instructor] Time. – God. Whew. Okay. (calming music) – I’ve been boxing since
I was a little kid. A lot of people come into
boxing already in shape. The way you breath and
the way you push yourself is a lot different than
in any other sport. Boxing really does push
you to different levels. We’re going to get into
some technical drills on how to move, where to
punch, what punches what. Then we’ll get into padwork drills, you guys are gonna hit some pads. (alarm sounds) – [Instructor] Let’s go. – Yeah, I wanna be pounding
a piece of meat right now. (laughs) – Grab, like, two
levers, you’re gonna pull those levers right in front of you. Okay. Now I’m gonna take my left foot, slide it right out in front. Now, the first punch is our jab. It’s the most important punch in boxing. The jab’s gonna be our lead hand. It’s gonna come out and rotate over. These two hurt what we’re hitting, these two knuckles hurt us. We’re just gonna bring
it and come right back, keep our legs bent the whole time. Ready? One, two, three, four. All right, so now we’re
gonna go to the cross. The cross is the money punch. It’s gonna come right from this side, you’re gonna push off your back leg. It’s gonna come straight, aligned from your knee to your
foot, and come right back. Instead of crossing this
way, I don’t want you punching somebody’s cousin,
uncle, sister, right? Punch the person right in front of you. – Okay. – Ready? Three, four, much better, five. You see how now it gets that snap? – Yeah. – Okay, so in boxing, there’s numbers associated with punching. A jab is a one, a cross is a two. Two, one. One two. Jab. Ahh, good. (laughs) We’re gonna go non-stop for the next thirty
seconds, this right here. Let’s go. Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe. There you go. Time. (alarm sounds) All right, so now we’re gonna
work on how to move our feet. – Does anybody else have this puddle? (laughs) – Resetting, resetting, resetting. Good. Continuously let your weight feel in your legs, and go backwards. – I feel like I could sneak up on someone and really
give them the hammer. – I don’t even think
we’re through the warm-up, and I’m like, already tired. – When the bell beeps, it’s gonna give us a 30-second warning. So, you’re gonna to go
non-stop on the bag. It’s not about pushing it, it’s just about non-stop movement. One, two, three, four. – [Girl] Oh!
– [Instructor] Yep. – Okay. One, two, three, four, jab, jab, jab, cross, jab cross, backup, backup. – I feel kinda like a badass. – Non-stop, go! (punching sounds) (alarm sounds) – She had a strong jab and a strong cross, but we’ll see what the guys have. – [Instructor] What knuckles
should you hit with? – Top, so I can snap it off. – [Instructor] There you go. Again, again, again. Jab, jab, cross. Backup. Ten seconds. – I hate you, Dad. I hate you. (alarm sounds) – [Instructor] Time. (punching sounds) – They’re good. They all actually
have a good punch on ’em, but hers actually has more pop than them. (laughs) – Holla! I’m gonna beat their
asses. Just watch out. – My arms are turning into noodles, so it’s challenging. It’s
different than pilates. – It’s okay. Not everybody
can handle it, it’s all right. – [Instructor] Grab your
jump rope. All right, ready? Fast feet, go. Fast feet. Hands up. Fast feet. Speed. Speed. And push ups, go. Push ups. – What? Oh my God. – From the push ups to this,
we’re going mountain climbing. Speed, let’s go. – [Voiceover] Oh, fuck me! – Let’s go. Let’s go. Three, two, one … Time. (claps) – I’m thoroughly beat. My feet hurt, too. There’s not anything
like it, really, though, – [in unison] Mm-mm. – It’s cool, you guys did really
well, for your first class. – Can you say that one more
time, please? Into the camera? – These two did really well. You know, it teaches you how to push through things when you’re tired. It teaches you how to achieve goals that you didn’t know that were possible. Boxing, it’s not good
just for physical fitness, but just understanding how much more about yourself you can learn. (upbeat music)

    Why don't they try doing Muay thai or Kyokushin Karate and experience the brutal shin condtioning (slamming your shin against sandbags) and the kyokushin fist condtioning where you slam your fist against a sandbag or wooden board till it bleeds.

    Fitness pros ? There s no such a thing. There are fighter, footballer, basketballer pros. Fitness aint a sport.

    This may be too late for me to say but i wish someone can train me to boxing. Ive been serious about it but im really insecure. I dont even have money to try to do boxing but i do hope that one day i can do boxing as a career!

    Once you've done this for at least a year and your coach thinks you're ready to compete. Then the next 8-10 weeks of fighters training makes this look like a piece of cake.

    This is awesome. I own an MMA/Boxing/CrossFit gym and it's always fun when someone is fit in one area and try something new, seeing how tired they get and gaining more respect for that particular area.

    They are tired from jumping rope and throwing light punches. “Fitness professionals”

    I like this video. The instructor came across knowledgeable & experienced, he really controlled the tone of the class. This video helped me understand the jab & the cross much better…he spoke about breathing thru your punches…so important. I want more videos by this instructor!!

    I'm a boxer, super relaxed not In killer shape though. I have some fat on me and never really come off as athletic. This guy that was a fitness instructor at LA fitness comes to our gym sometimes. He's in good shape. Really kept up with the workouts that weren't punching. He didn't last a round with me while I was going easy. This sport is very mentally based. Once you learn the technique like the back of your hand and learn how to relax for energy conservation, you can achieve greatness even without looking killer. Once you actually get in shape you're a beast.

    I've been wanting to try boxing for a few months now! but I fractured my back and broke my wrist, shoulder and collar bone in an accident a few years ago and I'm not quite sure if its safe?

    They cant be that fit since that workout looks like a piece of cake and yet they looked like they ran a marathon. They didn't even spar.

    The actual training of Boxing is really difficult and really boring and the whole shadow boxing itself makes me feel very odd and awkward (You would think it would be similar to Berimboloing against a wall or shadow throwing, but it's not, those feel less silly by a mile) but sparring it the fun part in my opinion. You would think Muay Thai would be different but nah, shadow Muay Thai is even more awkward. 😅 I do boxing every other week or so, but Judo and Jiu Jitsu are my home arts.

    I'm trying boxing right now. I want to lose weight really bad. My goal is to be fit in 1 month. Boxing would actually help me keep up with everyone either running or hiking with them. It would also help me attend prom and stuff, I want to atleast attend prom right now and be a bit more of an outdoor type of person. As a girl I want to look a bit more beautiful and a pleasing personality is what I want before I can have a job. And when I will become a mother someday, I would teach my kids to eat healthy foods. And by the way I'm 16 right now. I will be turning to 17 and 18 so I need to make sure I had fixed myself.

    There is no such thing as a fitness pro. If they were as fit as they say then they would be competing at a pro competitive level in a sport.

  18. Bryan Wong Post author

    A boxer trains his whole life in the art of punching.
    Being fit is just part of it, but being fit and without the right technique, your training is pointless.

    This video was fun to watch! Im all hyped up for creed 2 XD. Boxing always seemed enjoyable/rewarding to me! I want to try it!

    You call that boxing training or just doing it for cardio and exercise?
    Boxing is a martial art, and when you train a martial art, you don't just blindly punch or kick , you actually have to think and feel what went wrong, and how did it feel when you punch, it's all about finding the "feeling"
    NOT just sweating and exercising.

    I trained in Boxing, Muay Thai, and a bit of Judo for years now and there's a saying in Martial Arts:

    "You train to look good, I train to kick ass."

    Boxing is fun when you get good at throwing punches.. I’m not a pro but I’ve been teaching myself for 12 years or so.. knowing you can beat someone up and each time you go hard, you get even better.. it makes you feel pretty bad ass.. and it gives you really great cardio without having to run or do other things.. use most of your body.. and your arms get toned really nicely

    it's very sad that boxing has coppied martial arts in this crap of punching with the two inside knuckles !
    I had three fights and knocked out all three in the first round , and trust me you should punch with the THREE OUTSIDE KNUCKELS . you can sprain your wrist if you use the inside two .

    If you take out the part of getting your brains rattled, then boxing is one of the best – if not the best – sport for your overall healt and fitness. I swear to you, hitting the heavy bag before and after your workouts, is the best thing you can do to warm up and cool down. It teaches you to relax your shoulders, how to use your legs and how to twist your hip to get more power into your punches. You only need 10 x 30s rounds to break a sweat, get your breathing going and you are ready to hit the weights.

    the girls hit was harder because she went first and the guys were hitting the bags and they were getting tired from it 😂😂

    Everyone thinks boxing is just simply getting in the ring and fighting but they have no idea how much training and rounds of sparring boxers do it’s not just getting in there and fighting it’s bleeding and sweating just so u can get in the ring and try and win that’s why boxing is the hardest sport
