In case you hadn’t heard, boxing has basically become the go-to model workout as of late. Considering the fact that boxing is a hardcore, calorie-torching, full-body affair, it isn’t too surprising that it’s been taken up by beautiful people for whom having a hot body is literally part of the job description. Bonus: it also provides ideal stress reduction and…um…aggression management 😉 Whether you’re pining for the sculpted shoulders, tight tummies, and impeccably defined arm muscles of a model or if you’re simply looking to de-stress while simultaneously improving your strength, coordination, and reflexes, look no further! Fighting just might be your jam. Looking to sweat it out model style? Here ya go! Check out one of these five online boxing routines and prepare to get tight and toned in no time.
