WANT to be fitter, faster, stronger? Well try out this Boxing Strength and Conditioning Circuit.

Circuit training can be a great way to develop a boxers fitness. Different types, volumes and intensities can improve a range of physical characteristics.

Circuits can be used to develop aerobic fitness, anaerobic capacity, strength/speed endurance and ability to maintain movement under fatigue. Although we prioritise high intensity interval running training to develop a boxer’s fitness, we still use circuits for training variation. This reduces the physical monotony that can occur when an athlete has large training loads.
