Home Boxing Workouts – Boxing With Tabatas


Here are a few things you may or may not know about me.

First of all I like to use boxing for fitness. Secondly I am a big fan of the  Tabata  Protocol. 

It would come as no surprise to anyone then that I am a huge fan of using the  Tabata  protocol with boxing!

If the term ‘ Tabata ‘ is foreign to you then all you need to know for now is that you are going to work as hard as you can for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds and repeat this eight times. It is based on a study by Japanese researcher Izumi  Tabata  and his colleagues. 

Sounds easy enough right? Well done at the recommended intensity,  tabatas  are a sure fire way to kick your butt in a hurry. Not only that but they will also get you fit in a hurry and have you dropping those unwanted kilos before you know it.


Give the following boxing workout a try as a finisher to your workout or go a few rounds by itself. You can do it with a partner using gloves and focus pads or by yourself shadow boxing. 

Perform each round for 20 seconds of maximum effort followed by 10 seconds of rest.

2. Hook and Bob (Left hook, bob, right hook, bob)
