Work out your body (and mind) with this 5-minute boxing reset from Ashley Guarrasi
What to do when your sanity needs a sweat sesh, but making it to the studio is just not going to happen? Sweat Series is here to help!
We partnered with Athleta and asked the industry’s hottest instructors and fit-stagrammers to give us their quickest–and hardest–do-anywhere workouts. So, get pumped! (On your own schedule.) Finding a workout you love is so much more than getting in a good sweat: “It’s about finding that cathartic time that relieves your stress, boosts your mood, and makes you feel confident,” explains Ashley Guarrasi, a founding trainer at Rumble boxing studio.
For her it was boxing–and in the video above, you can see why. With energetic power-jabs, powered-up core-targeting planks, and a feeling of instant gratification when you finally hit that bag, boxing is as much an emotional workout as it as physical one. (And don’t worry, you won’t be without a serious sweat sesh: “This workout will seriously work your entire body–from your arms and core and to every muscle in you your leg.”) Even if you’re a newbie, Guarassi says, the workout shouldn’t be intimidating. “It’s all about letting go of anything, everything–you can be whoever you want inside the ring,” she explains.
So make some room and get ready for this full-body (and mind) workout from Ashley Guarrasi.
