Necessary Equipment For Boxing

Anyone can benefit from boxing, regardless of age or gender. This is a cardio workout that helps improve endurance, build muscle, and burn calories. Getting involved in boxing can be as simple as lacing up a pair of gloves and throwing some punches. However, to do it correctly and safely, there are some essential pieces of equipment you will need. Here’s a rundown of what you need to get started with boxing.

Boxing Gloves

The first piece of equipment you need is boxing gloves. These will help protect your hands from injury while also spreading the impact of your punches evenly throughout your hand and wrist. Look for gloves that fit snugly but comfortably and have enough padding to absorb shock. Boxing gloves come in different sizes, weights, and colors, so take your time finding the perfect pair for you. You may also want to consider getting gloves with wrist support to further protect your wrists from injury. You can view our range of boxing gloves by clicking here


In order to properly secure your boxing gloves, you will need hand wraps. These thin strips of cloth help distribute the pressure evenly across your knuckles and prevent your fingers and wrist from moving around inside the glove, which can lead to injury. Handwraps also help keep your gloves dry and clean by absorbing sweat and preventing bacteria growth. Be sure to wrap your hands tightly but not too tightly—you should still be able to make a fist without too much difficulty. Check out our range of hand wraps here


A good mouthguard is essential for protecting your teeth, gums, and tongue from injury while boxing. Mouthguards come in different sizes, shapes, and colors, so find one that is comfortable for you to wear while still providing adequate protection. It is also important to find a mouthguard that does not impede your breathing. View the mouthguards we stock at Musclebound here

Jump Rope

A jump rope is a great tool for warming up before your boxing workout and cooling down afterward. Jumping rope helps increase your heart rate and gets your muscles warmed up and ready to work. It is also a great way to improve coordination and balance. When choosing a jump rope, look for one that is the right length for your height—if it’s too long or too short, it will be difficult to use properly. View our jump rope collection here


If you plan on sparring or competing in boxing matches, headgear is an absolute must. Headgear protects your head (including your ears) from punches, reducing the risk of serious injury. When choosing headgear, look for something that fits snugly but is still comfortable to wear. You should be able to see clearly out of the headgear without any obstruction; if you can’t see well, it puts you at a disadvantage in competition. See our range of head guards by clicking here
