Many professional boxers use to spice up their training and increase the intensity. Adding resistance bands to your boxing or MMX training makes it harder for you to move your arms and hence increase the tension in the muscles. To perform boxing exercises with resistance bands, use the door anchor provided to provide an anchor point for the bands to loop through. Turn your body away from the door anchor and grab the handles of the bands, 1 in each arm. Then extend your arm forward (one at a time) like how you would normally perform a punch.

The disadvantage of using free weights is that the majority of the work is done when you first begin moving the weight. By the time the motion is complete momentum has taken over some what. When exercising with resistance bands the opposite is true.
