|Boxing training is the intense and spartan training routine boxers employ to improve their physical fitness, agility, and fighting skills and control their weight. The goal is to ensure that the boxer is in peak physical condition for a fight. A boxer may also train in order to fall within the range of his or her target weight class. The exact components of a training routine vary with each individual depending on the level of competition, weight class, and the strengths and weaknesses of a given fighter. Non-boxers often incorporate aspects of boxing training into their fitness routines.
Common components of most boxing training include hitting various kinds of bags such as the heavy, double-end, or speed bag. Calisthenics are an important means of improving body strength and flexibility. Shadowboxing before a mirror, pad work with a training partner, or sparring simulate the fight experience.
