Boxing Essentials


Boxing Essentials

The enhanced community quarantine has freed up huge chunks of time from our personal day-to-day schedules. Because of this, many people have decided to allot more time to health and fitness and have started to look for quarantine-friendly workout routines.

One of the workouts that people are focusing on due to its indoor-friendly nature is boxing.

Do keep in mind that you need a lot of equipment to get started on boxing. However, many of these essential pieces of boxing equipment are compact and can be easily stored and carried in bags.

If you’re one of the people who want to put on some gloves and get some serious work in but don’t know what equipment you need, don’t fret. We’ve got just what you need.

Here’s a couple of essential items you need to get started on your boxing journey.

Hand Wraps

Titans Handwraps (Original Price: P275, SALE PRICE: P220)

You can buy wraps that have a Velcro fastener which makes it easier to securely wrap them around your hands, just like the Titans Handwraps. Having wraps on your hands whenever you are hitting a punching bag or the mitts is essential as it prevents numerous injuries like serious bruising and broken wrists.

Boxing Gloves

Titans Fight Gloves (Original Price: P1,020; SALE PRICE: P1,275)

Of course, you can’t go boxing without boxing gloves. It’s arguably the most important part of your boxing kit bag. Make sure you have gloves with ventilated foam to your keep hands cool and safe, like the Titans Fight Gloves, which is handcrafted for a comfortable performance.

You should also make an effort to check whether your gloves have a weight that you’re comfortable with. Get one that’s too light and you might have less padding than you need to protect your knuckles; get one that’s too heavy and you’ll run the risk of burning out early in the workout.

If you’re lucky enough to have a boxing partner at home, you’re going to need these as well:


Titans Head Gear (Original Price: P1,995; SALE PRICE: P1,596)


Wearing protective headgear like the Titans Head Gear is a must if you’re in a sparring session. Sure, spars between casual boxers usually have a rule that punches to the head aren’t allowed. But due to the unpredictable nature of punches (and people), it’s best that you gear up to protect your head from inadvertent blows.

Here are some other boxing tools that we think are good to have for your next boxing session:

Body Protector – If you plan to be more intense on your boxing sessions, protect yourself from hard-hitting punches by investing on a quality body protector, like the Titans Body Protector, which has an anatomical form-fitting design and multi-layered foam padding,

Double End Ball – Unique to the sport of boxing, the double-end ball/bag allows you to improve your rhythm, timing, and accuracy more so than technique. You can freely experiment with your punches as it allows you to throw any kind of punch. We recommend the Titans Double End Ball, which is ideal for endurance training and suitable for boxing, kickboxing or other punching training.

Boxing is definitely an amazing sport that develops your physical strength and mental fortitude. And the compact nature of the essential equipment makes it a definite favorite for people looking to work up a good sweat during the lockdown.
