Hey guys after reading these threads for awhile, and have learned a lot from you guys, i have decided to try and one day compete as an amatuer, I have no boxing expierence, but have watched boxing as long as i can remember, and so i took some boxing classes (6 classes) at a local reputalble boxing gym, and have been practicing with limited resources at home, i practice on the speed bag, heavybag, jump rope, shawdow boxing, slip line ect.... i want to know if i post a few videos would you guys be able to critique my fundamentals? I just wanted to make sure before i posted them thanks!
BTW Im 27 5'9 160lbs

Yup theyll probably critique the hell out of them. If i was you i would just keep going the gym, putting your time in and learning the sport. Post if you want prepare to get slammed. Not that it is personal but your a beginner with 6 lessons so your going to have a list as long as your arm of things you do wrong. Iv boxed for 8 months ish and if i posted id have an equally long list, but the only person im after advice from is my trainers that can see me in the flesh and correct me at the time. Im sure people on here will be happy to help though dont get me wrong

ok great thx i will post them soon, yea that was my concern i know there are some very knowledgable people on here, and those are the ones i want to hear from, that was my other thing, i wanted positive criticism, i really would hope we are all grown here and can critique constructivily, but i know not everyone can help it, so if i get slammed on here no biggie, i can handle it, ive been practicing for about 3 months and i know i have tons to learn, but need to know what im doing right and what im doing wrong at the ver basic fundemental stages, and what im doing right, so i can make the adjustments asap! And yea i plan on joing the gym soon again as well

Good on you mate, go for it.

If you post, just ignore the abuse etc and just take note of the constructive criticism but as johnboy2007 has pointed out, its your trainers who have the best advice/criticism.

At home i'd concentrate on shadow boxing, skipping, floor exercises etc and some drills on the punchbag. get on top of the fitness side and you'll be able to concentrate better in the gym.

Good stuff mate. Think the main things aswell with a boxing workout this is something i need to work on aswell at home is the intensity. Dont stand around having any breaks. The gym i go to is a boxing gym but it does a class for all that want to have a go. Some get good go onto amature some go to white collar ect. But the main thing about it is we do not stop its sheer hell, we get pushed sooo hard. For that hour there are no breaks.

Made me realise what a workout should really be!

ha yea im very unbaised and really want to understand the "sweet Science" of boxing, im always open to learning, oh yea i classes i took gave me a rude awakening on a REAL workout i thought i was in shape but after a few classes, i realized i wasnt doing the right things, i mean i almost threw up on a few occasions! ok so in order in participate in amatuer boxing i must get a traininer correct? Im in chicago if there any trainers out there that can lead me with some info
