Boxing

Boxing is an amzing training system, the fact that it also teaches you self defense is a big bonus. Your lower-back and ab muscles provide power for your punches by initiating an explosive hip turn, and your arms and shoulders bear most of the brunt of the muscle recruitment required for striking. With a consistent boxing regimen, it’s possible to add significant definition to these muscles—and even mass, depending on your genetic makeup—without touching a barbell or dumbbell. Best of all, assuming you’re reinforcing proper fight techniques, you’re improving and refining a skill that transcends fitness on multiple levels.
