Hello, my name is Dana Sanders, former NFL running back turned fitness trainer. We are here today at Fitness Evolution in Seattle, Washington with LIVESTRONG.com. Today's question, is boxing safe. Well it can be and I have some suggestions for you. Boxing like football can be pretty dangerous. What I would like to show you is a few exercises that can help limit that downside so what you want to do is work on your trapezius muscles and your neck. So let me show you a few exercises. The first one, lay on your back, press your head down and then up, one, and what I would like you to do, if you can get this a good 20, 30 times it would be great and then I want you to do a side to side without resting your head and if you can get 20 to 30 that way then you come back and you have 15 this way and then 15 to the side and then when you come back, it's not going to get any easier, you've got 10. So what I want you to do is just press this until you can't take any more, then you get up and relax. The second exercise, trapezius, you're going to hold the weights down by your side and squeeze. Now this works your trapezius muscles. And these exercises are designed to keep your neck strong, your traps strong because in boxing you take a lot of hits to your head. And those are my suggestions. Again, my name is Dana Sanders with LIVESTRONG.com and remember happiness is a choice so choose to be happy and live strong.
