Default I'm a beginner. Help me add missing elements to my plan and clarify priorities.

Hello everybody!
Sorry for my English.

Recently I started boxing. 2-3 trainings per week.
1 training - about 1.5-2.5 hours:
- warming-up - 20-25 minutes;
- skipping rope - 3 rounds, 3 min. per round;
- shadow boxing - 3 rounds, 3 min. per round;
- punching bag workout - 4-8 rounds, 3 min. per round;
[-] indoor soccer - about 30-45 minutes, once per week (on Saturdays, before punching bag workout);
- crunches - 1-2 sets, 3-3.5 minutes per set;
[-] stretching (seldom)
- some other stuff

But after 2 months I have almost no progress.

I'm 21 y.o. Before that I had never participated in sports.
I have very poor coordination.
I am physically weak.
My height - 160 cm.
My weight - 50 kg.
I have narrow shoulders.
And I'm pretty slow for such a small body.

I do not need pumped and beautiful body, or wide shoulders. For me no matter how I look from the side.

I want to be fast boxer and to have good technique.

As far as I know myself, in order to learn something, I need to work on it by myself for a long time.
Of course, the workouts benefit me. But very little benefit - if I don't work by myself.

I see there is 2 areas in which I need to develop:
- boxing basics, technique;
- P.T. - physical training

So I made ​​a plan, according to which I'm going to learn \ to work.
And I need your help add the missing elements and clarify priorities (in the lists below higher element has higher priority).

My plan for about 100-200 days (may be it would be better 300-400 days???).


Basics:
- Stance
- Basic footwork (1-2 steps forward-back-left-right)
- Jab
- Right Cross (Straight?)
- Combinations
- Rolling
- Combinations
- Slipping
- Combinations
- Blocking & Parrying
- Combinations
- Footwork - other techniques
- Hooks: Left & Right
- Combinations
- Uppercuts: Left & Right
- Combinations


Physical Training:
- Skipping Rope + Sit-Ups: 5 rounds (4 minutes + 30 sit-ups per round)
- Shadow Boxing: 2 x 6-7 rounds (3 minutes per round)
- Core: 2 x 4 minutes
- Crunches: 2 x 3 minutes
- Coordination (what exercises?)
- Wrist, Knuckles, Fist (what exercises?)
- Shadow Boxing with dumbbells: 2-3 rounds (3 minutes per round)
- Running with Acceleration: 3-5 x 100-200 meters
- Push-Ups: 2-3 x 35-45

And of course (primarily for my health):
- Jogging (in the morning, 6-7 days per week): 15 km (at the moment - 6 km)
- Swimming: 1 hour in the days when there is no training in boxing (at the moment I can not swim)

Work on the basics.

Train at least 5 days a week.

You seem to have a good sense of self-knowledge. You realize it's going to take a long time and a lot of work. Put in the work.

My experience (used to train amateurs and some pros) is that boxing improvement seems to come in leaps rather than gradual day-to-day improvement. Seen guys work on this or that -- be it basics for beginners or new styles and techniques for veteran pros -- day after day sometimes for weeks or even months and looks like they're getting nowhere ... then you walk in one day and it kind of clicks and all of a sudden they've got it.

Keep putting in the work. When you don't feel like training ... train some more. Develop mental toughness by forcing yourself to do a little more than is comfortable, a little more than you think is your limit. You'll get tired ... so what.

But I think 5 days a week in the gym is very important.

Good luck!

Thanks, Saintpat

But my problem is that at the moment I almost do not have money to pay for training. So I decided to go to training 2 times a week, and additional to that to work out at home.

How important it is - I work alone or with a coach?

I think that my coach is good coach. But I also think that he pays little attention to the correctness of how I'm doing.

Is there a gym you can go and pay a monthly fee rather than paying per session? It's hard to know without knowing your situation, but even if your coach doesn't supervise or instruct each workout you need to do a boxing workout each day in my opinion.

Vadim you need to hit the bag!!! Bryant Jennings started boxing at the age of 25 now he's close to a world title shot he hits the bag for 2 hours a day. Most pros and top amateurs will throw 5000 punches a day. The people who look for tricks and defence never stay they become martial artists or experts in defence. Boxing is about offence Muhammad Ali, sugar Ray Leonard never hit the mitts, so forget the trainer sparring is the best form of training. By your post I believe that in 6 months time we'll see you in Kung fu based on what I read in your thread. You sound like an intellectual and boxing is fighting.

You never mentioned your diet? If your training lots you need to be feeding your muscles and have enough body fuel in you to do all this exercise.

I'm not talking about getting buff here, so forget about the pumped and beautiful body but you did say you are physically weak? Make sure you fuel your body.

And +1 on what the other dudes said.

Keep it up though sounds like you into it.

The best is to find a sparring partner the best one that one can find like an ex champion and let him teach in sparring. Mitts equals kung-fu.
