-one round all lead hand punches
-one round straight right
-one round rear hand punches

All of these with footwork and head movement worked in.

Then fill the rest of the rounds with punching combos and head movement that simulate drills you do on the mitts.
why do you think you need a timer and a sauna suit to shadowbox?

Sadly, it didn't help me much. Southpaws always kicked my ass.

I think some people mistake shadowboxing as a conditioning tool. Unless you lay on the couch all day, shadowboxing shouldn't be that taxing. That's what the heavybag is for.

I don't think anyone is mistaking anything. Turning a drill into a conditioning tool is only limited by your imagination and how hard you want to work.

Just laying out an example, you don't have to do anything.

I used to hate shdowboxing...I'd actually skip that part of training or only use it as a warmup. Then I got an injury where pretty much all I could do was shadowbox. As long as you already have the fundamentals down, you can develop some pretty cool shit.

Also, it tires me the **** out (which is why I used to skip it). If done correctly, you're simulating a fight and throwing really fast, hard punches. And all of them miss. I tire faster in shadowboxing than I do in sparring

It helps immensely to videotape yourself (on the bags, sparrings, shadowboxing). Your coach doesn't have the mental energy to correct everything you do wrong. You do. And no I won't share, because I'm not very good and I would LOVE to have a video of a guy I was fighting. **** that.

You're right. You never see anyone wear sauna suits or use timers in their training.
