The female body and boxing

Female boxing has grown in recent years, hand in hand with the WBA. New discoveries have allowed women’s training to be more specialized. This evolution has been achieved thanks to various characteristics that trainers must consider:

√ Since body fat percentage in women is high, they are better adapted to resist prolonged psychophysical efforts, in aerobic work conditions

√ Since women sweat less, they can resist and mitigate more the negative effects of dehydration

√ Given the peculiarities of the functional structure of women’s neuromuscular apparatus, they have a great physical predisposition towards flexibility; hence their greater range of movements

√ In order to compensate for its smaller size (approximately 220-230 grams), the woman’s heart has a high resting heart rate: 78-80 beats per minute

Elite trainers plan their training considering these facts, which has allowed the improvement of female boxing worldwide.
