The Secret to Getting a Boxer Body

If you are training to become a pro boxer, an amateur boxer, or even a fighter, one thing you definitely need is a “body boxer.” What does a boxer’s body mean? It’s pretty simple. Look at the nobility of the boxing world as Muhammad Ali. Wide shoulders, built back, chest, and triceps.

And what do all boxers have in common? They train hard on the punching bags. A boxer bag is the boxer’s number one tool. So how does this contribute to getting a boxer’s body? Well, let’s define a boxer’s body.

Overall, a boxer’s body would be defined as a very tight body. This is crucial to having a boxer’s body and every pro boxer has this. Go up to a boxer in the gym next time and give him a punch on the arm or chest! Whether it’s muscularly built or not, you’ll feel like you’ve only punched a 250 lb heavy wall or bag. If you look at fighters in the world of boxing, you will notice a few things.

1) They are not all huge in terms of muscle mass

2) The muscles of many boxers are not over-defined

It is a common misconception that bodies like weightlifters are, or are, thought to have boxed. That is not the case. Remember that muscle mass does not equal strength. Proof of this is in the MMA / UFC cages.

We’ve all seen very muscular fighters owned full fighters who have very little muscle mass. A great example of this was Lyoto Machida vs Evans fight in UFC 98.

So a boxer’s body is a body with a lot of internal strength. Pushups are an exercise that helps to gain internal strength, that is, the strength of tissues, organs and ligaments. Another exercise is to punch and punch a bag. These help build inner strength and are not necessarily huge muscles.

So the secret to developing a real boxer’s body is training like them. Do exercises that increase your inner strength. Think, train hard on the punching bags and don’t give up. If you want to recover, use the boxing bag to train in rounds. Move around so that you also develop both endurance. To really strengthen your muscles, you will need to do a lot of cardio and inner strength training.
