The Heavy Bag Pro app, now available for iOS and Android, gives users at-home punching bag boxing workouts that are highly effective at burning calories and nurturing mental health.

TALLINN, ESTONIA, December 21, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Boxing on a punching bag proves to be an ideal workout to combat the stress of the pandemic due to its combination of intense calorie burning and mental health benefits. To help experienced fighters as well as beginners train safely at home, a new training app has been released: Heavy Bag Pro. The app is now available for iOS and Android and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

A recent study by Forza Supplements found that boxing burns the most calories per hour – about 800, depending on the style of workout, breaks and your weight. That’s 26.2% more than gym training and 27.5% more than running on a treadmill! What makes boxing so effective for weight loss? It involves intense intervals and engages muscle groups all over the body. In other words, it’s an ultimate total-body workout.

If staying slim and fit wasn’t reason enough, hitting a punching bag is also good for mental health. It helps release emotions like anger, which can manifest as anxiety and depression if not dealt with. It helps you focus on the present moment, and releases stress and endorphins. Boxing also helps strengthen the mind and build confidence. In addition to mental benefits, it also releases neck and shoulder tension, a common result of working on the computer all day.

For all of these reasons, boxing with a heavy bag is an ideal sport for these stressful times. With the Heavy Bag Pro app, users can now complete motivating, guided boxing workouts at home, in the gym or anywhere. The app features dozens of professionally-created workouts, hundreds of combinations, a round timer and more with new workouts added weekly. You can complete the workouts with a punching bag or in the air (known as shadow boxing), making it convenient for both experienced fighters or beginners.

Heavy Bag Pro is the must-have app for fighters. It helps practitioners of different martial arts master the combos they need to dominate their competition. As fighters ourselves, we knew there was a need for an app that would be like a personal trainer in your pocket, allowing you to train on a punching bag anytime, anywhere without running out of ideas. At first, Heavy Bag Pro was just for us, but now we’re happy to share it with our fellow fighters!
