Warming up is required, with exercises and use of a jumping rope.
For protection, items should be used such as a mouthguard and bandages that are wrapped around the hands and wrists to protect the fingers and skin.
The following accessories are used:
• Boxing gloves: made of padded leather.
• Punching bag: made of leather and stuffed with sawdust, tires or scraps of cloth. Used to increase the punching power.
• Punching ball: its goal is to strengthen the hands and arms at face level, helping the practitioner to keep his guard (and to maintain a defensive position).
• Target focus training punch: special gloves used to train combinations.
One type of exercise is called shadowboxing, which is basically an individual training in front of a mirror, combining footwork, defense moves and punches.
