No discussion about kickboxing workouts can be complete without discussing about the importance of a good pair of kickboxing gloves. As a matter of fact, we should have started this blog with a discussion about kickboxing gloves. These gloves serve dual purpose of protecting your fingers without taking the force out of your punch. These are the two aspects that you must keep in mind while searching for a glove to buy for your kickboxing workout sessions.
Kickboxing Gloves for the Protection of Your Finger
Before the advent of kickboxing gloves, many people had their career cut short by some serious injuries to their fingers. I hope you still remember Newton’s third law from standard VI Physics. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Well, the reaction of those hard punches come onto your fingers and it is the gloves that have to take care of them. The biggest threat comes at moments when your fingers get separated while putting a blow on the opponent’s jaw, which may result in all the reaction coming onto a single finger!!. The gloves ensure that the fingers are together all the time, thereby avoiding the force to get onto a single finger. The soft material inside the glove, softens the impact of the blow.
Kickboxing Gloves for Maximum Impact
While we need to wear a glove during a kickboxing workout to protect our fingers against injury, the glove should not take the force out of our punch. That is what most high end gloves accomplish through their internal design. They allow you to apply as much impact as you can and then they absorb the impact to protect your fingers from injury. At a broad level the technology is similar to that used for protecting cars against crashes.
The functionality is one of the important considerations while selecting kickboxing gloves. But please apply enough attention to longevity as well. Last but not the least, do consider the clothes that you shall be wearing during your kickboxing workout. The gloves need to look good with the output. After a man must look his best during kickboxing workouts.
