In this section we will discuss the various pieces of boxing equipment and their use. Much of the equipment is designed for your own protection, everything from hand wraps, to all the different types of boxing gloves, head guards, gum-shields etc. Then we will go through what they are for and how to use them properly, so that you will gain the most benefit from all your hard work in the gym. Just standing there for ages and swinging your fists against a punch bag will not teach you much, except maybe new ways to damage your hands. You don't need to constantly hit a punch bag as hard as you possibly can either - Even if you know how to punch well, no one has ever KO'd any punch bag and you won't manage it either.
At The Beginning You Will Need The Following Equipment
For Boxing Workouts With No Partner You Can Start With
For Training With A Partner You Will Need To Add
Groin Protector (and Chest Protector if you are female................or a transvestite) :-)
That equipment above will do fine to start off with. As time passes and you want to take yourself up to the next level, you can always gradually add more specialised boxing equipment to those list.
