The Beginner’s Boxing Workout You Can Do At Home

If there’s a workout that can make your whole body lean and mean in record time, it’s boxing. No wonder more and more studios are turning on to the mixed martial arts (MMA) magic. Now Reebok is partnering with the largest MMA company in the world, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), and some of the most influential MMA gyms in the country to make it more mainstream than ever. “Boxing requires power and endurance, working every single muscle, which is why it cuts fat fast,” says Eric Kelly, a boxing coach at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, New York, and a Reebok Combat Training coach (he trains the brand’s athletes, ambassadors, and staff in all things combat). “It’s the total package.” After all, each punch you throw is strengthening and sculpting you from your shoulders to your calves. (Before you start: hook yourself up with some killer boxing gear.)

How it works: Start with the warmup: jump rope for 5 minutes. Then do each exercise as indicated. Repeat the circuit 1 or 2 times. Aim to do this routine 3 times a week on alternate days.

Total Time: up to 45 minutes

You will need: Jump rope
