Pretty much after sparring, I get headaches even though we wear headgear and sparring gloves etc. I wasn't that worried the first time round cos I got hit real good, but yesterday I only took a few glancing glows and had a minor headache...
What does that mean? I think I've got a ****ty chin, so should I stop practicing? Or just hit the bags? I need all my brains about me for my day job, I spar and fight cos I love it, not to make money...as a creative person I need all my cognitive skills!
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
I get more headaches from my day job!
I depends how bad the problem is, i only get a headache after taking big shots, i have a good defence now so a rarely get them!!
It could also be your style of fighting, boxing is a head **** at the best of times! Maybe your concentration level is too high which can cause a future headache before you even take a shot!
I'm a very relaxed fighter, i use the ring a lot so i can take a break in the rounds. I think a my head would explode if i didnt!!
If that doesnt work you should think about seeing your doctor. Better safe than Sorry!
