Default Starting boxing in September

Hey guys,

I'm pretty out of shape, I'm a 24 year old around 5'7", kind of a short, stocky build and weight fluctuates between 11st 10lbs to 12st 3lbs. I used to be relatively active until I was about 20, running, skateboarding and swimming etc but lost interest in all of them and boxing is the only sport I follow.

I did a session with the boxing society at the university I go to and loved it, and was taught the basic stance and how to throw the jab, straight right.

My question is, is there anything I can learn while I wait for term to start back up? I'm very keen in the technical side, but I am skeptical of learning from youtube videos as they tend to get bad press. I want no bad habits.

Any advice/videos you could send me my way would be much appreciated for a keen new learner.

Cheers

(p.s. unfortunately there is no gym anywhere near where i live)

Where you gonna start then mate?

Your right about the you tube videos, buy a book by Gary Blower for the best technical introduction to Amateur Boxing.

It could be worth just concentrating on improving your core fitness through jogging and circuit training for the couple of months, that way when you go back to uni you'll be able to focus more on the technical side of boxing and not have to play catch up on the fitness.

Circuits and jogging can be pretty dull but it may help out in the long run.
