Adam Azim wins 3rd pro fight by KO stoppage live on Sky sports

Adam Azim wins 3rd pro fight by KO stoppage live on Sky sports

Adam Azim who is a professional boxer aged 19 from Slough won his 3rd fight against Jordan Ellison by KO stoppage in the 3rd round live on Sky sports. He was fighting on the Amir Khan vs Kell Brook undercard. Adam is hailed as an amazing future talent by many boxing pundits.

This is great news for Boxing Evolution coaching as Adam Azim first started boxing aged 7 when he attended the Boxing Evolution summer camp. His Dad initially wanted Adam to get involved with boxing because he had so much excess energy due to having ADHD. ‘I was really hyperactive as a kid and dad wanted me to be a boxer because I was so enthusiastic,’ Adam recalls. ‘I had ADHD and needed something to drain my energy, so we went to the local boxing gym and started from there.’ as Adam tells the Daily Mail.

Adam showed incredible natural talent and was extremely game for such a young lad. During his time at the summer camp he also completed the A.B.A boxing award scheme.

Adam then continued on a one to one basis with Boxing Evolution coaching for a number of years during which time he progressed to an extremely advanced level for his age. Adam Azim went on to enjoy a decorated amateur career that included 10 national titles and was ranked the No 1 Youth Amateur welterweight in the world. He is now currently being trained by Shane McGuigan. Commenting on Adam recently Shane has said,

“I think he’s going to go right to the top. I think he’s going to win world titles and do huge things for British boxing. Everyone has to get behind him.”

Here is Adam Azim aged 8 years old is on the pads developing his head movement and footwork.

Check out Adam’s improvement in sparring over a period of only 4 months after being coached by Boxing Evolution.

It is incredibly important to develop these important and fundamental skills from a young age to ensure unconscious competency later on. All of these skills are built upon the foundations of stance, guard, footwork and punch technique. If these basics are not developed properly there will be weaknesses in any techniques built upon them.

Adam is truly a testament to the Boxing Evolution philosophy of developing your full potential and how much sports such as boxing can help with neurological divergence issues such as ADHD. Read more about how Boxing helps with ADHD and how Boxing Evolution can help you by clicking the link below.

When You Don’t Have Time or Place to Train, At Least Do This – Tips For Training In Lockdown

Exercise is essential for good health. However, we limit ourselves to one or two exercises. Sometimes when we lack the space or time to train, exercise and fitness aspects are ignored.

Despite the time and place obstacle to exercise, we should all do some aerobics, stretching, balancing and strengthening exercises.

Here is a list of exercises you can do despite time and space limitation and also what you need to know about them.

1. Aerobic Exercise

Aerobic exercise tends to speed your breathing and consequently the heart rate. Both are important for proper functioning of the body. It offers lung and heart endurance. Aim for 150 minutes per week on moderate intensity aerobic exercises to reduce the risk of heart disease, depression and falls. Try some speedy walking, jogging, cycling, dancing or the step aerobics.

2. Marching in Place

This kind of exercise needs very little space; you can stand in a small area allowing flexibility of your arms. Do this even as soon as you wake up or retire to bed.

3. Body weight circuit exercises and Stretching

A space of four meters square allows you to do some stretching and circuits that are often overlooked. Doing these two activities for even less than five minutes will increase your range of motion, strengthen your muscles as well as reduce the risk of body injuries.

What Is Metabolic Syndrome and how can boxing help?

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that increase a person’s likelihood of developing diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

The risk factors of metabolic syndrome include:

● High blood pressure (more than 130/85 mmHg)
.
● High blood sugar levels due to insulin resistance.

● Excess fat within the waist.

● Increased triglyceride levels.

● Reduced level of good cholesterol (LDL).

Having any of the listed risk factors doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a metabolic syndrome. However, they increase your chance of developing cardiovascular disease. Three of more of the risk factors will make you diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. It will increase the chances of health complications.

To diagnose metabolic syndrome, your doctor might check the following: blood pressure, fasting blood glucose level, waist circumference, fasting blood triglycerides, and cholesterol levels. Three or more abnormalities noted from the tests will indicate the presence of the metabolic syndrome.

If you’re diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, the goal of treatment will be to lower the risk of developing complications. You might be advised to have some lifestyle changes like quitting smoking. Additionally, your doctor might opt to prescribe medications that lower blood pressure, blood sugar levels, and drugs that eliminate bad cholesterol.

Preventing metabolic syndrome is certainly possible. Maintain a healthy blood pressure level, waist circumference, and good cholesterol levels. Exercise and weight loss decrease insulin resistance.

Boxing is one of the best ways to help prevent health complications such as this, due to the fact that it is one of the highest calorie burning activities you can do, along with being one of the most stress relieving too, all helping to keep your blood pressure lower.

Avoiding Injury and Remaining Safe during Exercise

Exercising often has wide-ranging physical, emotional, and social health benefits. It would be best if you exercised safely to remain healthy and free from injury. If it is safe and painless, you are more likely to stick to it! Safety is about using common sense, basic understanding techniques, and listening to your body.

Here are some tips you can use to stay safe and injury-free:

• Be aware of your body. Think about how a particular exercise is making you feel. If something does not feel right, stop immediately, and seek medical advice.

• Warm-up and calm down. Try the slow stretches and go through motions of your sport or activity before the start. Cool down with the slow stretching.

• Pace yourself. Have one recovery day every week to rest. If you are experiencing some pain, rest until the pain subsides.

• Mix it up. Try other sports and exercises to lower the risk of overtraining.

• Strap or tape. If your joint is prone to injury, consider strapping it or taping before exercising. Even better, consult exercise physiologists or physiotherapists to obtain a program to strengthen the injured area and get advice on proper taping techniques.

You might have been training hard, and getting great results on work performance. You don’t wish to stop now simply because of the little “injury/ache.” Below are some of the recommendations to keep training while you take care of what ails you:

When injured:

  • Seek medical opinion after initial contact; a good physiotherapist might be your best help in recovering and training.
  • Be smart with exercise selection.
  • Dial in your sleep and nutrition.
  • Know the training opportunities that you can consider without the injury.

When injured it’s your goal to also manage your mental health to boost your physical wellbeing. Some injuries require a day or two off the exercise. Consult your doctor and if it’s recommended, it’s important that you treat it as a recovery time.

Unless there is an injury/ache affecting your whole body, there is something else you can do to stay active. Swimming, walking and yoga are some of the great general exercises.

Afterburn effect

The afterburn effect is also known as the oxygen debt. Its scientific name is excess post-exercise oxygen consumption. By definition, the afterburn effect is the amount of oxygen required to bring the body functions back to a resting state.

During intense exercises projected to burn body calories and keep the body fit, the metabolic rate increases. After the exercise, your metabolism rate doesn’t go back to resting phase immediately, however, it remains elevated for some time. This in turn causes an increase in calorie burn, even after you’ve done some stretching, showered and eaten post-workout snacks.

To be specific, the additional energy expenditure occurring after the workout is called afterburn effect.

When and how does the afterburn effect occur?

Increased physical activity makes the muscles increase demand for oxygen that oxidizes the carbohydrates and the fats, producing some significant energy required for movement.
Oxygen debt occurs during an intense exercise, the body will require more oxygen than breathing could provide. The gap in demand for oxygen by the muscles and the actual available oxygen delivered stimulates the afterburn effect.

The advantage of the afterburn effect is that this fascinating activity by the body burns extra calories in your body the right way. How to do this? Train hard and intensely (not forgetting proper technique obviously), and incorporate high intensity aerobic exercise and/or HIIT into your program.
