Shadow Boxing is one of the best exercises you can do to increase your boxing fundamentals and overall boxing game. The problem is most people don't know how to do it properly or have any motivation to do it.
There are many benefits to shadow boxing. Unlike the heavy bag if done properly there is alot of footwork involved just like there would be in an actual fight. Also while shadow boxing your punches aren't hitting a target which forces you to maintain balance and by punching the air you get a feel for what it would be like in a boxing match. Contrary to popular belief your going to miss more punches than you land in a bout. Shadow Boxing is essentially like a basketball player shooting around by himself working on different moves and different shots.
The problem most people have is they don't shadow box properly. They generally don't incorporate their feet correctly, punch in combinations that don't make sense, don't get full movements, and the biggest problem is they have no interest in it. This lack of interest generally stems from lack of experience in the ring so they can't visualize an opponent to make it realistic and beneficial. Obviously a way to fix that is to begin sparring and gaining that experience but not everyone is ready for actual live contact. This is why we developed the "Audio Boxing Trainer". It was first designed for shadowing boxing but can be used on heavy bags as well. Basically it a a downloadable to any MP 3 and you will have boxing punches and movements both offensive and defensive called out that are more consistent to what would actually occur in a real fight. The CD contains 8-3minute rounds of instruction and also 4-2 minute cardio rounds . It's just like having a trainer with you. The "Audio Boxing Trainer" can be purchased through BoxingFitnessFactory.com.
You can't be a complete boxer if you can't or won't shadow box. Imagine Kobe Bryant never shooting the basketball by himself.

In boxing if you lose you're a bum, if you win impressively people will say you're the greatest of all time. Boxing fans and writers tend to over react to a fighters win or loss. Victor Ortiz was the butt of every boxing joke. He had a decent win over Andre Berto now people actually think he has a shot a beating Mayweather. Brandon Rios had a nice win against a better than average lightweight and now he's being mentioned as a potential Pacquiao opponent. Speaking of Pacquiao he put the fear of God into first ballot Hall of Famer Shane Mosely but because he didn't get the knockout people say he's slipping.
The bottom line is boxing fans and writers get to high with the highs and to low with the lows. One fight can involve so many different variables, styles that it's often times takes more than just one fight to stick a label on a fighter
Boxing Tip: While working the mitts with your trainer always get full extention on your punches. Punch through your target.
