Learn How To Put Boxing Gloves

 By: Shijina Mukundan
Your hands might get damaged or broken if you don't properly take care of it for boxing. This process initiates by wrapping your hands with lengthy strips of cloth called 'hand wraps'; this is followed by digging the hands into the boxing gloves. Here are few steps mentioned below which one should follow before putting on the boxing gloves.

First of all fasten the hand wrap hook in the region of your thumb, and then enfold the wrapper in the region of your wrist three or four times.

Enfold the wrapper in the region near knuckled four to five times (don't include the thumb). Keep your fingers stretch away from each other to permit for suppleness when making a fist.

Continue this wrapping process the region at the base of your thumb, the thumb must be in such a position that it shouldn't touch the rest of your hand, following this take the cloth wrapping the out portion of your hand, just next to your pinkie. Continue wrapping the cloth at the back of your hand.

Following the above steps the cloth wrapping process must continue across your palm and the inside of your hand, in-between the thumb and index finger. The cloth should be again taken to the pinkie side (i.e. back of your hand).

Don't forget to make X pattern over the hand by crisscrossing amid the in and exterior parts of your hand, and then wrap the surplus in the region of your wrist.

The end of the cloth wrapper should be tied at your wrist. Many of the wrappers have fabric fastening straps that can be protected at the wrist for a comfortable and tight feel.

The completely wrapped hands must be placed in the gloves to completely feel relaxed and secure.

The wrappers which have the fabric fastener should be strapped on the gloves for complete fitness. If appropriate, lace can be tied on each glove.

Don't wrap the cloth very tightly, it should make your fingers movement easy going and not stuck.
