Training as a boxer brings a good level of fitness and is also designed to foster self-discipline and confidence. Some people train as a serious preparation for the sport whilst others simply want to keep f or learn some basic self-defense.

The products are there to ensure the well being of the user, bringing the greatest degree of protection that is possible. Boxing also requires stamina and boxing equipment and accessories are there to help achieve this. Major companies involved in this field include Lonsdale, Everlast, Adidas, Pro Box and Reebok. Most boxers train at a specialist gym but many people like to have boxing equipment at home too.

Gloves are essential, of course, for protecting the hands. Today's gloves have leather outer and an injected mould for the inner part, designed to shape naturally with the fist and give a snug f. It's important that the glove fs correctly and feels comfortable. Some gloves have extra padding, giving extra protection to knuckles and wrists and there are separate, fingerless inner gloves and knuckle guards. There are gloves, made specifically for sparring, which won't damage the opponent.

Boots too, need to f well and give sufficient support. They should give a good grip on the canvas. Headguards are made of leather with a foam rubber inner for good shock absorbency. They should also have extra padding around the ears. Other accessories needed include cotton handwraps, tape, mouthguards and gumshields. Clothing includes shorts and training vests.

Keeping f is essential for a boxer, who may be called upon to fight through many rounds. It's also important to have fast footwork and quick responses. The speedball is a very good training aid and can be bought with an adjustable frame, so the height can be altered. Another favore piece of boxing equipment is the skipping rope, made from nylon or leather. Punchbags are another familiar em in the boxing gym. There is the straight punchbag for general training and the uppercut bag.

Even boxing rings can be bought easily, including portable three rope rings. These are very useful for training as the boxer can practice in a real environment. In addion to specific boxing equipment, boxers can also invest in general fness machines, such as treadmills or rowing machines. All the hard work and dedication will pay off when coming face to face with an opponent in the ring. (TIMExplore.com)
