Jump roping with rhythm, drills on a punching bag, double end bag (one of my favorites), and the speed bag, shadow boxing (preferably in front of a mirror), and sparring.Hello every1 I’m new to this and could do with some help here I took up boxing with my son and I also am his coach does any 1 have a plain and simple boxing regime (exercise) list I’m a light-weight and my son is a fly-weight help would be good but I not quite sure where to start in the exercise department many thanks if u can help with some ideas I will try a couple them out to see which works best
i use 3 pounds for shadow boxing, never had a problem. and yeah i heard road work is better but i dont have a nearby track or anything to run on, and i dont wanna look like some wacko sprinting on the streets LOL. so i just use a treadmill.I tried 3 lbs for awhile, that's a bit too much, my arm hyperextended too much, and my technique got sloppy for about a week, I wouldn't do it, terrible arm pain, with no helpful results, you can use 3 lb dumbells and work on your stance to build arm stamina, but not shadowboxing. You'll sprint faster on the road than on a treadmill too. Roadwork beats treadmill by far because you go at your own pace, you can pratice turns and slips better by dashing, and there is incline.

Other exercises I would recommend that are for the muscles you would use often in boxing are:Running sprints and for distance, swimming laps, push ups, pull ups, crunches and/or sit ups (best for boxers), any exercises with a medicine ball, rowing, any exercise that works your core muscles are great also the ones that use stamina. Don't lift big weights because it will make you slower and less flexible which will make you more injury prone, if you want to lift weights, small weights with alot of repititions would be the best.
