Retiring from competitive boxing

Retiring from competitive boxing

You could be forgiven for thinking that the high energy and adrenaline-pumping sports we love are only for the young - after all, most boxers retire around 30. Full body workouts and hard-won matches don’t make you think of senior citizens - however, getting older doesn’t necessarily mean disappearing from the scene and turning to the couch. As your body grows older, you simply need to adapt your diet and workout regime to accommodate it.

Getting old, feeling a little weak, soft, confidence down, performance down? Blood pressure sneaking up, cholesterol levels moving up. Your chest is starting to look like a little boobish? You want to do something but just cannot bring yourself to get to the gym? You also know that you need to do something about how you feel and look.

Do you need boxing shoes for your boxing training or just for a bout?

You have just started boxing for fitness at the local boxing gym and you are loving it, love the training, love the environment and they are a great bunch of guys and girls that you train with. You have been using the gloves out of the box, the one that most gyms have in the corner where that has some of the original gloves the gym started with and the gloves that people have left there by mistake or have been retired after they reached their use by date.

How the foam inside of the glove is constructed.

The internal foam which most people will not see, is one of the most important parts of the boxing glove, you can have the best external glove material which may last 2 or 3 years but if the foams that have been used inside the glove are not good quality you may see the padding deteriorate within in 6 months, rendering the glove useless.

  1. Machine made injected molded foam or IMF.

  2. Hand-made layered foam.

  3. Layered foam, horse hair combined, ( not used very often now days)
