Boxing gloves should fit like, well, a glove! We offer a range of punch mitts, sparring gloves and boxing gloves that will help reduce injury during training.
Punch mitts are required for various purposes which is why they often come in different weights. The main function of the gloves is to protect the boxer’s hands and minimise the damage done to the opponent’s face during a match. Lighter weight gloves are often used for competition matches whereas heavier weight gloves are used for training.
It is often advised that beginner boxers start with a lighter weight glove as this makes training easier by ensuring they can hold up their hands to protect themselves. For training purposes, sparring gloves are often the best choice. Sparring gloves offer a little extra padding which helps to protect you and your sparring opponent.
Beginners finding their feet often approach boxing as a game that you play, whereas anyone involved in the sport knows otherwise. Keeping all participants safe is incredibly important, with injury part and parcel of boxing. Without the correct equipment, even recreational boxers are at risk of suffering an injury to their hands and wrists due to a lack of support.
No matter the fitness levels of those using the equipment, you can rest assured that the use of the highest quality punching mitts and gloves will make all the difference to your session.
As well as providing the best training equipment for beginners feeling their way into the beautiful science, at UK Gym Equipment we also offer punching mitts and gloves suitable for seasoned boxers training for competitive action. Whether you are looking to kit out your training camp ahead of fight night or focused on a future competition, you will find exactly what you are looking for.
The heavier the glove, the more padding and protection it provides. As training lasts longer than a match, the heavier gloves reduce any potential damage. The benefit of training with a heavy glove is they will speed up your punches during competition when you are using lighter gloves.
It is equally important not to overlook hand wraps. Often inexpensive, hand wraps are an essential piece of equipment for training as they offer you a little extra support. Any trainer worth their weight in salt will not allow anyone in their gym to put on a pair of gloves without proper hand wraps. As well as the best quality punching mitts and gloves, UK Gym Equipment also sells hand wraps for you to make use of.
