    Boxing for a Better Core
    Albert Isordia
    IDEA 2009

    Kill the body and the head will follow. This saying is well known to professional boxers. Without a strong core to withstand punishment and generate powerful explosive movements, a fighter is beaten before he or she has begun.
    The core consists of the deep abdominal muscles and the muscles closest to the spine. Boxers understand that to develop devastating strikes, they must use kinetic energy.  This power is launched from the ground and must be channeled through the body.  It is then amplified through efficient use of the core complex. They must also be able to contract those same core muscles to absorb and deflect body blows.
