SEVEN FACTORS IN DESIGNING A BOXING GLOVE – TITLE BOXING BLOG - CHOOSING BOXING GLOVES
One of the most common questions we get at TITLE Boxing is how to choose the right boxing glove. This can be a tricky question because the fit and feel of a boxing glove is mostly based on your own personal preferences. Consider these factors when choosing your next pair of gloves.
1. THE FIT A glove should slide on without a ton of effort and struggling. You shouldn’t have to force your hand in the glove. It should be snug and firm, but not tight. There should be room for wraps and it shouldn’t put any pressure on your knuckles as you make a fist. It should feel comfortable within the glove.
2. FLEXIBILITY You should have enough movement in your hand to be able to easily catch and open your palm as well as easily close it. So, it shouldn’t be restrictive at all.
3. IS IT ANATOMICALLY CORRECT? It should have a natural fit to it. No area should be cramped or constricted or force your hand in any position that doesn’t feel right. We also like for it to be pre-curved so it encourages you to make a tight fist.
4. PADDING There should be an adequate enough padding for bag gloves or sparring gloves. Bag gloves are typically denser and sparring gloves are typically softer. In either case, you should be able to hit the bag or spar with them without feeling it in your knuckles. You should never bottom out in a glove when you make contact.
5. ADJUSTABILITY Whether it’s lace or hook-and-loop, the closure should provide a secure, custom fit. You should feel additional wrist support when they’re nice and secured.
6. BREATHABILITY We prefer a mesh palm or a soft lining that dries easily. It’ll allow the gloves to last longer and they’ll be more comfortable.
7. WEIGHT Pick a size or weight that best suits your needs. A heavier glove provides more padding and weight and is made more for power punching. A lighter glove, in most cases, will have less padding and lends itself to speed work.
In the end, the right glove for you is the one you feel best about in feel and performance. Although it can seem a little intimidating, the best thing is that your selections to choose from are massive. You have a nearly limitless number of options to choose from. There are hundreds of different styles, from designs to color combinations to types of construction. With time and experience, you'll discover your own preferences for the perfect pair of boxing gloves.

5 common senses that fitness needs to know
Five common senses that fitness needs to know
1. Sweating, careful dehydration
Men need more water than women. For men, the amount of water needed in muscle is more than three times higher than in fat. In men's bodies, muscles account for about 40%. In ordinary women, muscles account for more than 20%. a little.
Water also lubricates joints, regulates body temperature and dissolves nutrients that are transported into the body. In general, men need about two liters of water a day, and sports men have multiple times of water consumption.
2. In training, it is necessary to add chromium in time.
Chromium is a mineral that is essential for life. It lowers cholesterol in the body, increases endurance, and increases muscle mass and oxidizes fat.
Quality grapes and raisins have a reputation as a natural “chromium library”. Ordinary men can provide enough chrome to eat a bunch of grapes every day, and men who participate in fitness exercise need to double.
3. The body often has congestion, need to add vitamin K
During exercise, some people bumped a little, and the body became bruised or bruised, and it didn't heal for a long time. This is a sign that the body lacks vitamin K. Vitamin K is a "hemostasis hero". Lack of it will delay blood clotting, and in severe cases, blood will not coagulate.
Cauliflower is rich in vitamin K. Eating broccoli 2 to 4 times a week can relieve the body's bruising or congestion. Secondly, asparagus and lettuce also contain vitamin K. Eating foods rich in vitamin K can not only strengthen the flexibility of the blood vessel wall, but also prevent the occurrence of bruising and congestion.
4. Exercise cramps, pay attention to supplement calcium, magnesium
Symptoms of leg cramps after exercise do not indicate that your exercise is overloaded, but is caused by inadequate nutrition. The main role of calcium and magnesium in the human body is to participate in the transmission of nerves and muscles. Physical exercise can easily cause the lack of calcium and magnesium in the human body, which in turn causes the conduction of nerves and muscles to be blocked, resulting in leg and leg cramps.
The daily calcium requirement for adult men is 1000 to 1800 mg, and the daily recommended amount of magnesium is 350 mg. The source of calcium is sufficient, and milk is a good choice. Magnesium contained in green leaf foods is most easily absorbed, and high-quality magnesium can also be found in nuts and seafood.
5. Poor sexual desire after exercise, excessive zinc loss
Zinc is known as the "sexual element" of men. Insufficient zinc in the body will affect the amount and activity of sperm. For men who participate in fitness, they will lose more zinc, especially when sweating is more, so zinc supplementation is especially important for men who exercise regularly.
Eating lean meat and steak is an effective way to get zinc. According to the measurement, every 100 grams of lean beef can provide about 50% of the daily demand for zinc. Seafood, mushrooms, lean meat, eggs, and whole grains are also rich in zinc.
