Can the Shadow Boxer VRT be used by Women?

We get many women that buy the Shadow Boxer VRT. Ironically, male fighters and women want the same thing!

  • To tone up without putting too much muscle bulk on
  • Burn Fat
  • Improve fitness & endurance
  • Resistance training minimise injuries which may happen using weights
  • Flexible & compact device you can take any where
  • Improve punching to keep your other half in check! (This last one's a joke)
Punching is a really good all round exercise especially for saggy arms as punching against resistance tones the triceps. But make no mistake it's not just about the upper body. If you punch correctly (see Paul Briggs lesson our DVD) this actually tones up your abs, waist line, legs and your bum, as you have to twist from the hips and push from the legs to drive punches forward. Doing this repeatedly will take inches of your tummy, tone your bottom and thigh muscles also.

Finally there are lots of other exercises on our blog that we are adding to when we get a chance. See our previous post on Reverse Crunches in March 09 for instance. This the best exercise for lower abs (often neglected) which encourages better posture AND strengthens your abs both which make you look a lot slimmer and in fact reduces the chance of lower back pain due to poor posture.

Finally, remember this basic equation...there is no quick fix to weight loss. If you use more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. Shadow Boxer ups the calories you burn in a fun way and so the pounds should fly off, if you use it regularly.

Good luck

Manny Pacquaio Uses Shadow Boxer

We introduced the 'PACMAN' to Shadow Boxer back in Decemeber 2007 courtesy of Tino Ceberano. Manny's hand speed is already legendary but being the perfectionist that he is continually looks for ways to improve his training both from a fitness and fightng perspective. Obviously, our commiserations to Ricky Hatton who unfortunately felt the full force of Manny speed and power.
