1) [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5hBDyAjpFc&feature=channel_video_title[/ame]


2) Every session
3) Depending, if i wanna warmup just 1 round. If i wanna do proper shadow 3 rounds or more
4) Also depending on the situation, for warmup fast half punches. To train very fast movement,footwork and punches at same time. Just like your fighting yourself and use a mirror or use the ring to get familier with the size

1. I practice in front of a full length mirror.

2. Every session

3. At least one round. Depends on what else I'm working on in that session.

4. Usually at the same intensity I use on the bags.

Default Re: How do you Shadowbox?

I usually try to imagine an opponent throwing punches, and how I would react to the situation.

Every day.

Around 25 min or so within a session. I don't do rounds when I shadow box. I'll throw a few punches when I can when I'm not in the gym just to stay sharp, and limber. I try not to do it around people outside the gym though because I think it freaks em out and you look like a weirdo. Too many raised eyebrows ya know.

Sometimes really intense sometimes less intense.

-- With specific intent, i.e, warm-up, skill mastery, speed. I do a few rounds regardless to get warm. I go over things that happened sparring and things I would like to do sparring while shadow Boxing. This is usually slower, deliberate and I add speed as I am more comfortable. I also find working on body feints and firing a fast jab is best done while shadow Boxing.

-- Every workout

-- 3-6 rounds

-- Usually 30-70% except for jabs. I am usually fully engaged mentally so going fast isn't really my point.

I shadow box with varying amounts of weight (2.5,5,and 10 pounds) in each hand. Probably 2-3 times a week. About 6-9 4 minute rounds. 70% to 100% intensity.

I might as well answer my own question

I start off with just foot work and slowly working on technique. Then the next round I'll speed it up and may put my gloves on also to get my arms accustomed to punching at air. Then my last round is footwork and head movement (kinda act like it's the last round and I just need to survive).

I do it almost every workout. I always do at least 1 round slow working on technique

At most 6 rounds, but usually 2

Slow at first, but then I go at 80% unless I'm working specifically on my speed

1. Like a mu****a
2. I have to kind of stop myself from doing it in public or when I'm running. Sometimes I'll drop a combo or two if I think nobody can see me
3. If I'm working out I go 1-3 rds. Other than that probably less than 30sec per instance.
4. If I'm working out, I tend to go hard in the mother****in ring. Other than that I treat it as a dance. Seriously, I'll just put on some music and get my Slick White American style on to the funky beatz. Sometimes I slip and fall, and it's not always because I'm drunk

PS
When I say I go hard, what I mean is that shadowboxing usually tires me out more than hitting the bags or sparring. I got into the habit of coming to the gym late every day, partially because I'm an habitual procrastinator and can't get anywhere on time but mostly because i hate when my warmup has me pre-fatigued. Idk why I do it like this, I just need to feel that snap at the end of my punches. Tires my back and shoulders like crazy and can get me pretty winded if I decide to throw a high volume of punches instead of focusing on head movement, footwork, and power like I usually do.

There are many ways to shadow box depending on your situation and goals. What shadow boxing is really about is training the mind and programing the correct boxing instincts. Done correctly, shadow boxing is the most important part of your training. Done incorrectly, it becomes a complete waste of time. A good coach can advise you on correct form for somebody at your level while keeping your mind properly engaged.

Remember, it is the instinctive moves you make in the ring that you don't think about, yet makes you a good boxer.

I know right. I sometimes will walk and then bust out a slip and a slide right out of nowhere.

I am sure they all think I am insane.

I don't shadow box that frequently, I prefer light sparring or hitting the bags and conditioning, it reveals I am awkward. Usually not more than a few seconds to warm up. In sparring, my weird body mechanics make a lot of guys look awkward, but my style doesn't confuse everyone. I liked the lighting in this room at the boxing gym.
