If you want to get the physique of a boxer, you need to do more than just hit a heavy bag.

While working out your arms is definitely a good idea, you’ll want to do a variety of workouts that hit your core and lower body as well. Surviving in the ring requires an athlete’s stamina, and these exercises will help you with that goal as well.


Perform the exercise pairs (marked A and B) as alternating sets, resting the prescribed amount of time between each set. Perform the rest of the exercises in order. For weight, use the heaviest weight you can handle while still being able to complete all the sets.
