Box Your Way To Fitness With Denzel Washington

Malcolm X and Training Day are just a few of the movies starred by Denzel Washington. At his age, many people really cannot keep up with his fitness routine as it is robust and rigorous. The 60-year-old does a 10-round workout boxing session at least five days per week, a good exercise yes, but one that you have to bend your mind to stick with. But at the end of the day, it is a great way to build muscle strength, keep a firm stability, burn fat and also a good aerobic exercise. Whether you decide to go to a gym or build your own home center, trying this plan would be a great idea.    

The technique involves a routine procedure – the reason why so many celebrities do boxing – that sees you doing an intense 3 minutes of the workout then alternate with a minute to cool your heart rate then, at it again. This cool trick can burn off anywhere from 400-1,000 calories! We have compiled two effective workout plans you can use when doing boxing:    

1. UFC Power Punches    

This calls for full strength to be in play as the activities involved requires your entire body to be at work. The routine has six 3-minutes round with 1-minute interval rest time. It includes:    

  • Warming up and hitting the punching bag at 50 percent strength rate to flex your muscles and get you prepared.    
  • Second round should see you going full force with your punches (same timing with intervals).   
  • Combination: Jab, throw a cross (repeat)   
  • Combination: Jab, cross, hook (repeat)    
  • Combination: Jab, cross, hook, uppercut (repeat)   
  • Combination: Jab, cross, hook, uppercut, body punch (repeat)   

Whew! Felt like we were on the battlefield just now!    

2. Punch With A Beat    

For this routine, music will play an important part as each beat will come with a jab, punch, cross kick and uppercut. For best results, play to the tune of a fast-paced rhythm that will increase your ability to burn fat more effectively. This procedure will help to tone your shoulders, core, and back and also help to keep a more consistent punch rate. A minimum of 4-5 songs will do the job with each having a different beat to change your actions and give your body flexibility.    

For excellent results, do workout plan number 1 with routine number 2 strategy.
