You've practised in front of the mirror enough, now its time to hit the gym.

Shadow boxing becomes a differant activity when youre adapting it to a real life scenerio.

From the short bit I've seen (couldn't live with the music) you are extremely square on and wide open to hooks. If you want to fight from that stance you need to get the shoulders in more, so they protect your chin from the side. It would be good to test your current style in a ring in sparring, you'll notice where it won't work.

No offense but I think you watched Tyson too much.

I get his point though, it's not easy to tell you where your style would go wrong, experiencing it yourself would be a much better learning experience. For example your elbows are very much in front of you, I'd hunt for your liver all day. Your gloves are against your face, I'd try to punch your guard into your face as it's impossible in my opinion to withstand much force like that. You give up most of your reach by standing square on, what if you can't get inside? Will I be able to open you up for uppercuts by punching you in the sides as you're wide open there? Questions like that would soon be answered in the ring, and you'd be able to adapt. We could give you things to work on now, but it would be pretty much pointless.

Yeah i do get what your trying to say, and i do apreeciate it, but that's the type of video that im able to upload right now, and for little it may be, it still helps. I try to grab all the help i can in my current situation.

What is your current situation?

Can you get to a boxing gym? If not, will you be able to in the near future?

What's your strength and conditioning like? What's your diet like?

Do you have access to a gym, a place to run, a punchbag etc?

Hey, i will get to a boxing gmy, it's just a matter of time, til i finnish my car license, because theres no gmys near me.

I was doing a program named p90x while training boxing, stopped a while ago,i run from time to time, i plan to run every morning i do have a little home made bag it's not an heavy bag but it's better than nothing.

Oh and about diet, i eat what i like and want lol.

Ok

Save the boxing specific work for when you get to a gym. I understand that you want to learn now, but you will pick up bad habits that will hinder your progress in the long term - you are already displaying some. Although we can tell you where you are going wrong by watching your video, it is pretty much impossible to guide you properly without coaching you in person. Trust me on this, you really are better off being patient.

Strength and conditioning - Work hard on flexibility and floor work for the moment. Lots of dynamic stretches, lots of skipping, lots of running (sprints rather than long distance), and lots of press ups, sit ups, pullups, step ups etc.

Food - speak to RDJ Seriously, look at what you eat, and when you eat it. You will never perform to your optimum without the right go go juice!

Don't view your 'current position' as a negative. Don't worry about what you can't do boxing wise for now. View this time as preparing to join a boxing gym. When you do get to a boxing gym, you will be fit, flexible and able to perform to the best of your ability if you follow the above guidance. If you try to perfect your boxing before putting these fundamentals in place, you will never get anywhere.
