This week we’re turning the 20 Minute Fitness podcast into a fight club and aim to improve your punches. While boxing traditionally might have been seen as a “two-men” sport, today we look at it as an amazing workout for everyone. No matter if you’re in for the weight loss or want to get stronger, boxing can take you there.
And of course with its growing popularity and proven formula for all sorts of fitness goals, the number of innovations out there that focus on boxing has grown too. Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about the tech that can improve your uppercut and knock out your virtual target!
Three Things You Will Learn
1) Track Your Punches With These Gadgets
The very first step towards not just becoming a pro boxer, but getting a good boxing workout in is mastering your punches. There are a number of factors that you should look at from technique to speed and force. And all of these can easily be tracked by tiny little sensors that you can hide underneath your gloves.
The first one of these sensors is the PIQ ROBOT – a collaboration between PIQ and Everlast. This gadget is “more than just a sensor”. It is an AI-powered system that delivers actionable information that will allow you to improve your punches. Get an insight on how your punch speed and your G force are improving and learn about your strengths and weaknesses that you should work on!
Another similar innovation is the Hykso punch tracker that tracks your hand movement at 1000 times/second. The 6000 data points you get will detect the number, type and velocity of your punches and provide you with all this information at real time. This will give you a great basis for becoming a better fighter. But if you still need an extra boost of motivation, you can compare yourself to elite level boxers and try to catch up to them.
Finally the StrikeTec Sensors are the tiniest of all, but will give you the highest number of data points. With StrikeTec, you won’t just know how fast and powerful your jabs are, but also see whether you throw that punch accurately enough.
