Yep, I’m a geek, that much is obvious already. And this geek went boxing. I started a couple of weeks into January, not just because I wanted to try; some friends of mine are getting married and people are in “getting-into-shape” mode, and I was the one who suggested taking up boxing. I didn’t just want to talk the talk, I also wanted to walk the walk. I bought some boxing gloves (Bulls) worth P980 and some hand wraps (Bulls) for about P180.
The routine for training starts off with around 20-30 minutes of jogging to warm up. Me and my friends resorted to just running around a line of badminton courts ten times, non-stop. Full-body stretching exercises follow after that, and once stretching is done, the first mits sessions begins. In-between mits sessions/round, there are other boxing drills to be done; speedball, double end bag, weaving, etc. After my first day, my body hurt like hell and I wasn’t able to go back to boxing until after a week. But after that, my body adjusted and I was already able to go boxing every other day.
