Looking for an inexpensive exercise that gets your blood pumping all over your body, and releases pent-up stress, anger and aggression? Hit the speed bag and/or punching bag! After a long, hard day, your adrenaline is pumping, and what better way to release it than boxing? Pretend the bag is the one person in your life that gets under your skin, and hit that bag! Boxing has many health benefits such as hand-eye coordination, enhanced cardiovascular health, and stress relief. A bonus benefit is that boxing is an inexpensive workout that you can perform at home! You can start with shadow boxing, where you imitate your favorite boxer, move your feet and hit into the air. Next, you graduate up to a speed bag, such as a Everlast 6-Piece Platform Bag Set for less than $60 bucks. Install the speed bag in your man cave, and go for it! The next level up is the punching bag, which typically weighs 70 pounds, so you need a sturdy beam to attach it to. If you don’t have a sturdy beam, you can get a freestanding punching bag such as Everlast PowerCore Freestanding Heavy Bag.

Of course, check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program. Anyone over the age of 50 has to be careful about going overboard and putting too much stress on their heart and cardiovascular system. Alert1 Medical Alert Systems has a variety of senior care technology products to alert your loved ones or 911 if you have a medical emergency.
