Boxercise Weekend Workout
Another weekend is upon us, and by now, you should know what that means; yes, we’ve got another weekend workout for you.
Being stuck at home means your usual exercise regimes have changed. Some of you may be doing less exercise because gyms and studios have closed. But some of you may be doing more because you’re getting outside and making the most of being allowed out.
And whilst exercise options may feel limited, over the past few weeks, we’ve been bringing you some inspiration for your weekend workouts. There’s so much more to home workouts than stretching or an outdoor run.
This week, we turn our attention to boxercise workouts.
What is boxercise?
You don’t have to be a heavy weight champion, and nor do you need to take a blow to the head to get involved with boxing; you don’t even need a pair of boxing gloves! Instead you can pack a punch by giving boxercise workouts a go.
Boxercise is a popular fitness trend based on the training concepts boxers typically use to keep fit, including boxing movements and other workouts. Besides the fact that boxing is a great form of cardio, there are many other benefits too.
Boxercise workouts are also great for improving your motor skills, balance, reaction time, and overall agility as you engage hand eye coordination in both hands.
So, if you fancy yourself as the next Anthony Joshua, or you’re just looking for a fun way to stay in shape, give it a go.
Below are a few boxercise workouts we’ve found to help get you started.

When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
