Default What can I do at home to improve?

I've just started boxing this week at my local gym and learning the basics etc but I want to know what I can do at home to improve and therefore speed up the learning process? I don't have a bag or even gloves at home but do you think even things like punching the air consistently could help improve my speed etc? Looking for any tips for someone just starting. Cheers!

well the way i train at home is do body weight exercises but do them fast and explosive because it will make you faster and explosive

When throwing you punches to tech don't rush when doing it. just throw the 1-2 combo just to get it down to basics. down throw hook yet and ask you coach you coach is the most important person to talk to aswell as fighters

Move around aswell to get use to it

as James Toney always says, you should shadowbox three rounds everyday to keep you sharp

I saw some documentary on cuban fighters. The documentary was american. The main point was that the training routine is not much different from the US, but the cuban train harder and more often. Hope it helps, it is all about hard work and dedication

Just shadow box from time to time and get a feel of your style. What i usually do at home is watch lots of boxing videos and see what the greats did and how they made it work for them

there is no speed up unfortunately...

But if you mess up fundamentals, it does not matter how many trick you learn, how well is your conditioning / punching power / even hand speed...you will stay crappy fighter.

So better polish fundamentals as often as possible: stance, guards (elbows tights, hand high), balance, distance control. There are some more, just give you the idea...

Shadow boxing and rope skipping. Also strength & conditioning training.

I recommend starting it very slowly and steadily, just like Niall_Tucker said. You can go round after round just practicing footwork (keeping your stance, keep your hands positioned right, keep your weight close to the center when moving, take small steps etc) and practicing simple 1-3 punch combinations. The foundation is of great importance, so don't rush in to it and try to go as fast as Pacquiao!

As for strength and conditioning, I recommend to check out Ross Enamait's "Never Gymless"-book.
