Boxing with Bengals

07/26/2014 05:15 PM

If you head down to Training Camp, you may see some Bengals players working on hand combat or boxing drills on the sidelines. During the season, you’ll see players doing some of these same drills in pre-game warm-ups on the field.

The trainer leading those drills is Ignition APG’s Ben Creamer. He let me join in on a session with Bengals’ Domata Peko and Terence Newman to get a feel for what a typical boxing workout is like for an NFL athlete in the offseason and how it translates to the football field.
