Default Re: Complete beginners guide to a boxing routine

I'm a beginning planning on starting this in the next week or so. Thanks for the OP, very thorough

Just some concerns: I know some people say not to jump into the heavy-bag and I'm concerned about balance/footwork. Is there any good drills to practice so that I'm not totally off balance starting off with the heavy bag? I don't want to get into bad habits. Would a sac ladder help with general footwork/speed? Also, would it be ill-advised to do too much on the heavy-bag without a trainer or supervisor to point out mistakes or give advice, or would work on the heavy-bag get me into bad habits defence-wise as it doesn't hit back?
