Default Shadowboxing in public

Have you/do you do this. Is it very awkward?

Share your confidence tips if you do, or any anecdotes if you are inclined.

ha ha

well sometimes at work i think about boxing so when i go to the toilet ill shadow box in the cubicle lol... i aint ashamed...

but once i came out of the cubicle cause there wasnt space to practice footwork and i got "lost in the moment" in front of the mirror by the wash basins when a colleague walked in, looked at me in horror, then looked down at the floor and proceeded about his business.

i shadow box in the gym

people who shadow box in public are morons.

If no one can see you shadow boxing it doesnt count as shadow boxing in PUBLIC. people who shadow box in malls and in front of people in public are absolute gimps.

I think that's what people are talking about, places where you think you're alone. I sometimes shadowbox while doing road work, there's a soccer field half way down the route. Normally no one can see me, but occasionally someone walks his dog and there's me looking like Rocky IV.

Run somewhere very secluded, when its dark- otherwise you'll look a pleb.
