10 Things You Absolutely Need in Your Boxing Bag
Boxing is a great workout and can be a lot of fun, but it's important to be prepared before you get to rockin’. That's why we've put together a list of 10 things you absolutely need in your boxing bag before your next training session.
1. Boxing Gloves
This one is often forgotten, but don’t fret if you forget! Here at RockBox we have plenty of gloves that you can buy or rent! If you do bring your own remember, boxing gloves come in all different sizes, weights, and colors, so make sure to pick a pair that fit you well and offer ample protection. You don't want to step into the arena without them!
2. Hand Wraps
Handwraps are just as important as gloves when it comes to protecting your hands while boxing. Hand Wraps are used to protect your hands from cuts and bruises and to keep your knuckles from getting too sore. They also help stabilize your wrist and support your thumb. Make sure to wrap them tightly but not too tightly, and be sure to practice wrapping them before heading to your first training session.They'll help keep your hands secure and prevent injuries. Don't forget to take them off before you start throwing punches! If you forget to bring them, no need to worry, RockBox fitness studios sell hand wraps just in case.
3. Change of Clothes
If you're planning on working out hard, then chances are you're going to sweat—a lot! So it's always a good idea to bring a change of clothes with you so that you can change into something clean and end your workout feeling refreshed.
4. Athletic Tape
Athletic tape is useful for taping up any areas that might be prone to injury, such as your wrists, hands, or ankles. It's also helpful for keeping wraps or gloves in place if they start to come loose during your workout..
5. Water Bottle
Staying hydrated is key when working out, so be sure to bring a water bottle with you to the gym. It's important to drink water throughout your training session so that you don't get dehydrated or overheated.
An extra pair of socks never hurts either! Socks tend to get sweaty during workouts, so it's always good to have an extra pair on hand in case yours get wet. You want to make sure that your feet are comfortable to avoid any injury that may occur (such as blisters).
7. A good pair of sneakers
Bring a pair of good athletic shoes that give your ankles the support and stability they need, while moving fast on your feet. Try to pick a pair along with a slip-resistant design to keep you safe during the session.
A towel is always handy to have around when working out, especially if you start to sweat during your training session. Use it to wipe away any excess moisture so that you can stay comfortable and focused on your workout.RockBox even offers towels to purchase at studios, so in case you forget, we got you covered!
Make sure to stay fresh and fragrant while you pack a punch with a powerful deodorant to fit your sweat schedule. We recommend keeping one in your bag that is guaranteed to keep up during even the most intense boxing workouts, it's sure to help you take your exercise regime - and confidence! –to the next level.
10. Gym Bag
Of course, you'll need a bag to carry all of this stuff! A backpack or duffel bag will work perfectly for carrying everything that you need for your boxing session. Just make sure that it's big enough to fit everything without being too bulky or heavy.
Now that you know what essentials to put in your boxing bag, it's time to get packing! With these 10 items in tow, you'll be prepared for anything that comes your way during your training session.. Happy boxing!
