Boxing bag at home... ideas for routine?

Postby jodie259 » Tue Jan 15, 2008 10:17 pm


I'm just getting back into exercise.
I've got two kids under 18 months... so I'm fairly limited in what I can do.

We have put a boxing bag up in our backyard. Tonight I did my first work out with it, and I feel great. But I was going along blind...

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a workout for me.

These are the things to consider:

- I'm working out alone (so no-one to hold boxing pads)
- I'll have around 1/2 hour
- I've got a fairly small yard, so I can't jog around it much... but I did do some mini sprints across the yard tonight.
- my main focus is weight loss... particularly on my stomach and arms. Legs are fairly muscular already.

This is the equipment I've got:

- boxing bag & gloves
- skip rope
- swiss ball
- two of those weighted balls - different weights (must find them)
- some dumbells somewhere... must find them too

Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks :)

I dont know how to use one. If no-one else has ideas. you could go for a session and learn what to do then do it at home.

Here is a good boxing routine site: ... 202006.pdf

and here is another site that has heaps of different workouts you could do: ... rkouts.htm

I do a boxercise class and some of the stuff we would do is:
- 20punches followed by 10 push ups then another 18 punches followed by 9 push ups and continue this down till you do 2 punches and 1 push up.
- you can jog as far away as possible from your boxing bag and then lunge to it do 50 punches then run back and repeat it.
- with the weighted balls you can hold yourself at the top of a sit up and then hold the weight and twist it from side to side

hope that gives you some ideas :)
