Top 5 Strength and Conditioning Exercises for Boxing



Strength and conditioning is becoming more and more popular within the boxing community. In a new article series, Boxing Science provide the Top 5 strength and conditioning exercises that we use in our programs to improve punch force.

Strength training is important for Boxing

Impulse is the amount of force developed in a short space of time, and this is an important contributor to running, jumping and throwing performance, as well as… yeah you guessed it, PUNCH FORCE.


This can be improved through hand speed drills and technique…. however these improvements might be small.

Our programs are designed to improve the maximal force production through strength, speed and movement drills. The more weight load you can shift in the shortest amount of time will give you more bang for your buck.
