BOXING / MMA / MARTIAL ARTS
Boxers, Grapplers, and Martial Artists can benefit from the Gymboss personal boxing training timer which allows you to time ANY round time followed by ANY rest time from 2 seconds to 60 minutes.
Training 3 minute rounds and 1 minute rest is good, but seldom are matches a steady 3 or 5 minutes of fighting. Often there are many short 10, 20, or 30 second high intensity bursts within a round followed by very short recovery periods. Training for these shorter, higher intensity periods that are followed by very short rests, may give you the needed advantage over a fighter who does not.
Running and jumping rope are a critical part of a fighter’s cardio training, and mixing intervals of high and low intensity to your training regime can increase your cardio endurance and VO2max. To successfully elevate your cardio fitness to the next level you should train above your comfort zone for 2-5 minutes followed by a 2 minute recovery at a reduced pace, these intervals should continue for 30 minutes. A Gymboss timer is easy and effective for training these intervals as well as any type of aerobic or anaerobic intervals.
A Gymboss timer is also a good tool for weightlifting whether you are training for strength or endurance. Stop guessing at your rest between sets and keep your workout on track by starting a set at a given time interval.
Most boxing round timers limit your training to 3 minute/1 minute intervals, with the GYMBOSS timer you can time any work interval and any rest interval you desire.
