The one's ive seen can work any muscle, depends on how you use it. They are fairly effective for edurance in your muscles if you do alot of reps. I prefer using free weights to gain maximum power and speed.

You can get a resistance band assembly specificaly designed for boxers out of ringsides catalogs. Look them up on the net, rinside will send you a free ctalog. The resistance stuuf is ok, I still prefer just using 2-3 lb hand weights. I used a resistance band assembly years ago with shadow boxing but found it to be restrictive and akward with certain punches. I just recommend small hand wieghts if its specificaly boxing that you are doing............Rockin' :boxing:
