It is a high level cardio session! Great to get the heart pumping and increase your lung capacity or shred some extra kilos. Learn technique, speed and power working either against the bags or with padded partner work.
Switch off your mind and focus on hitting the pads super hard. This requires you to fully concentrate on the task at hand and helps you to switch off from the outside world.
Avert daily stresses by taking it out on the pads (if you're super stressed or just a gun, make sure you warn your partner to brace for some big hits haha!) Jokes aside, it's actually proven that punching can help relieve muscle tensionsthat collect when you experience stress, or are training really hard.
It helps with building self confidence and physical strength by making you feel strong and powerful, igniting that fighting spiritwe all have.
Improves your co-ordination by focusing on different hitting techniques and punch routines, which helps with your mental sharpness
