BOXERCISE FOR HEALTH
About acs martial arts
So what are the benefits of Boxercise?

Increased mental agility
Sports behavioural studies have shown that the training techniques adopted by boxers using punchbags and pads lead to improved decision-making skills

Improved hand eye coordination
Unlike asymmetrical sports such as tennis and golf, your body improves evenly on both sides, because you work both sides equally thus reducing posture misalignment

Strengthens muscles
Boxing techniques improve muscle strength used in everyday activities, as well as the 'fast twitch' muscle fibres required for shorter, more explosive movements

Increases stamina
Research from the Indian Journal of Medicine has estimated that boxing is 70%-80% anaerobic (high-intensity) and 20%-30% aerobic; training increases stamina in heart and lungs(International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR) Physiological, Biochemical and Strength Profile of Indian Cyclists and Boxers - A Comparative Study Volume 3 Issue 12, December 2014 Page 98 1. Introduction [9})

Raises core strength
By holding your balance, you engage and strengthen your abdominals - this increased core stability can reduce the risk of back pain and improve posture

Weight /dieting
Regular exercise combined with an apropriate diet helps control weight, loss and weight management

Improved health
Regular exercise such as Boxercise, helps prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and depression, to name just a few ...

Exercise boosts energy
Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lung health improve, you have more energy to tackle daily chores

Prevent cognative decline
Working out, boosts the chemicals that support and prevent degeneration of the hippocampus, an important part of the brain for memory and learning

Sharpen memory
Working out can boost memory amongst adults. A study showed that running sprints improved vocabulary retention among healthy adults

Help control addiction
Alcohol abuse disrupts many body processes, including circadian rhythms. As a result, alcoholics find they can’t fall asleep (or stay asleep) without drinking. Exercise helps reboot the body clock.
