Boxing workouts are effective means to lose weight as they can make you burn around 350 to 500 calories in just one hour.

Plyometric circuit training consists of the following eight circuits which take two minutes per circuit (the duration of a round in amateur boxing) to complete.

Cardio Training

The cardio portion of a boxing workout should be in the form of interval training. A good idea would be an 800 meter interval, which is similar to a three-minutes round of professional boxing.
