    I just have to do some home work outs for the time being because gyms are closed in greece due to the covid. But I can't wait for all this to be ever and get back to sports :D

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    So I toom boxing classes for a month. The verdict id that it was fun and i experienced no injuries. It was mainly cardio which was kinda fun because i like it. However the work out was inferior to that of crossfits. Plus it was too sweaty and felt less clean compared to crossfit.

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    That's very true. I was thinking that I would never learn box bcz of that and then I thought maybe I won't start boxing THIS period of time.. but i could try kick boxing that would be fun, if possible. Although being bare feet makes me kinda shy for some reason :P

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Okay so here's a plot twist. My working schedule changed suddently yesterday so I cannot attend boxing classes which makes me kinda sad because I was really enthusiastic about it. However a ray of hope there still may be, I could attend kickboxing classes which are 2 hours later so maybe this is...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Well You always had in mind that the position was rather fixed and he would guide us like saying you give 2 hits he gives 1 hit so I had all the time in my mind to do "what he said" and not things on my own. Otherwise i could have been more aggressive I think/ The dentist as a boxer's name...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    I'm just thinking..if someone tries to attack me.. I could run.. or find something to defend myself like a knife, or throw something against him or just go berserk.. No boxing rules apply there. ButI do agree with all the things that you said. I had my 3rd boxing class today (and the forth and...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    I fully agree with you. So is there any martial art which offers better chances of defending yourself in an attack? Oh and something funny.. there is that Xena TV show again on TV where she did some incredible (fake) attacks that she would be dozens of enemies.. well i felt that i used the...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Everyone i spared (or at least tried during a single lesson) was way way way better than me (obviously). It was annoying and funny at the same time that i could not land a single punch. But that's exactly my point. I was playing with the rules. But just throwing things against someone or kicking...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    All the comments so far are really helpful. My gym is closing the following week, so from September (if Covid permits) I will return to action. I have 2 more training days left. Boxing seems fun so far and not as brutal thankfully. However the boxing coach is on vacation and the gym owner...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Are you joking or you mean it? Because 6 months is too much..I know that I can't make up my mind easily, but I can have 2-3 more boxing work outs so I can try them..

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Okay so I did a second boxing training today.. It was more challening that the first. I had an opponent and that was kinda scared (coward I know).. i did receive a hit on my face though (but nothing serious). There was no bag punching.. we only changed oponents and then some work out in the...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    So today i had my first boxing lesson. Which was not quite a boxing lesson. the boxing coach is on vacations so the gym owners did the class (he's practicing brazilian jiu jitsu and mma).So we did some work out (warm up, push ups, burbees, some abs) and then some punching.. and then we had...

    Do you see any serious improvement?

    Yes this makes sense (being thin and doing body weight exercises). But trying these exercises for me, would it be useful I wonder? I could go 5 times a week at the gym i don't mind it. I like it actually. thinking about the arm work out, I really don't feel my hands getting tired. Usually it's...

    Do you see any serious improvement?

    Well I have available time.. I could go even 5 times a week but i've been told 4 times is better because more rest is needed. I saw a photo from the beach from the boxing trainer. He can do handstands but his body in that photo looks like someone who doesn't really work out. My crossfit trainer...

    Do you see any serious improvement?

    So are you suggesting that I should try a different kind of training? Or add something that my current training is lacking?

    Do you see any serious improvement?

    Well I just wanna have a good looking body, nothing too much, just a decent body. I've septn a long time thinking i'm too fat so if i can be called "average" now I'm very happy. I think my quadriceps and my culfs are in better shape. The abdomen part is the worse. I have no particular goal...

    Do you see any serious improvement?

    Actually this photo is from 1st March 2020. I thought it was from September but it's way more recent. Is it good to have huge pecs?

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    I don't think I care about being a good boxer, since i'm not going to pursue any boxing career. I wanna be good at performing the punches and techniques just for not hurting myself and maybe some self defence. Nothing further than that. There is a "fight fitness' programma where...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Probably you're right Regarding training, what's the difference between boxing and kickboxing? I mean obviously you kick, but are they that different as a routine work out? I mean for my physique not for kicking people's buts.

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    I know it's my fault, I just can't decide. And I have to add something new to this section. I experienced the loss of my father some weeks ago. This made me wanna try something more "collevtive" not so "lonely" as the crossfit. So the idea of being in a group feels kinda relieving to me. I...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Well maybe that's the problem. I don't wanna become a boxing athlete, maybe I need a training that involves boxing and some self defence but at the same time it maintains a crossfit approach that will put some emphasis in the weight-lifting part. I'm pretty happy with the results in my body...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    I mean that I just want to attend boxing classes during which all the exercises that I need to do will be included. As it happes now during crossfit classes. I attend them 4 times a week and I know I've done a serious work out that does not need anything more than that. It's not that I'm bored...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Ι know but it's actually crosstraining.. it's just that the word crossfit is mostly used in greece but they mean crosstraininng. About the burpees and push ups yeah you are right. It's just that /i want to attend let's say boxing classes and that would be all. Not having to do complementary...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    That's true, but in my gym you have to pay extra. I think it has 5% lower fee but still it's too much. I will just ask I think to attend a boxing class.

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    It kinda depends on the country I think. For Greece, I think it's not cheap at all. You can find an annual gym subscription for 80 euros. Mostly I would be interesting to know what boxing traininng involves. I kinda feel it's only jumping ropes and punches. I'd need push ups, pull ups...

    Which martial arts should I take up?

    Well there is a weight lift place in the same gym so they could use some of its equipment. The ideal would be 2 times boxing 2 times crossfit. It's just that you see someone who practices let's say boxing and he has a great boxing and u think oh i will do boxing and i will get ripped. But...
