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 can do partner shadowboxing. That is, just shadowboxing against another shadow boxing opponent, away at each others' arms length. True that shadowboxing is underrated for many reasons. But that exercise I mention here, got me back into doing it.

THINK SHADOW BOXING REALLY DEVELOPS your balance and how to move and throw at the same time whilst remaining balanced. not many people do that well.

I've been working on shawdowobxing a lot to work on my balance, headmovement and punching while moving. I make sure to do a lot of it with my eyes closed too (I got this idea from scrap).
It makes a notciable difference
