Boxing equipment and boxing accessories
Hit the mark with boxing training equipment and boxing gear
Shark Fitness has been equipping boxing athletes with boxing gloves, punching bags and boxing trainers for years, but also with everything to protect themselves for this intense sport like bandages or boxing protective clothing.
If you think boxing is all about hitting your opponent as hard as possible, you're sorely mistaken. In addition to the whole-body training component, this intense sport also has a strong mental component and thrives on mutual respect and adherence to clear rules.
Boxing enthusiasts are often not primarily concerned with competition. The training on the punching bag, the boxing trainer or the pads alone is a great workout, promotes health and fitness and the training sessions can reduce pent-up stress in a targeted and concentrated manner.
Which boxing accessories do I need?
It's obvious: good protection for knuckles, fingers and wrists is important in boxing. The type of boxing training you choose and the form in which you train is crucial.
Boxing gloves with finger openings such as the Bruce Lee MMA boxing gloves do not restrict the freedom of movement and are optimal for mixed martial arts and similar training variants.
For sparring and fitness sessions and boxing gloves provide the desired protection and support the punching power.
For punching bag training or training with punching pads, boxing gloves are the right choice. The padding in the boxing glove absorbs blows and thus protects hands and wrist.
The bandaging in the boxing gloves additionally stabilizes the wrists and knuckles and can prevent injuries. Boxing bandages or alternatively inner gloves also absorb sweat before it gets into the padding of the boxing gloves. This prevents them from starting to smell unpleasant.
Punching balls intensify boxing training and not only improve punching and kicking skills, but also specifically train reaction and movement skills.
By training on the punching stand or the speedball, the so-called "boxing ball", you also develop a feeling for the correct punching distance.
Another advantage is, of course, that boxing training at home, especially with the Bruce Lee Free Punching Stand, can be done easily and in a space-saving way.
The classic punching bag that is attached to the ceiling, the so-called "heavy bag", is very suitable for training punching power and improving punching and kicking technique. As a recommendation, the weight of a punching bag should be about 40-50 of the body weight of the boxer.
As accessories you can find in our online shop also ceiling hooks or wall brackets to mount the punching bags safely at home or in the training hall.
In sparring or fighting with your boxing partner you are exposed to attacks. Quick movements and evasive maneuvers are part of boxing training. With the right protective equipment such as mouth and head protection and good stabilization with shin gu ards, you can prevent injuries and stay in the ring longer.
