Hi, im Amardeep and i have just joined this forum, kind of, and just started to find intrest in Boxing.

But instead of watching it i wanna do it.

Hey there, welcome to the forum! Hopefully you'll find all the info you need here. We have a great group of members that are evry knowledgable and willing to take the time to help you out.
First off I would say that boxing traing is anything but "easy". It is probably one of the most intense cardio workouts you can do. At my gym, our routine is this:

20 minutes jump rope
5 (3 minute) rounds on speed bag
5 (3 minute) rounds on heavy bag
3-5 (3 minute) rounds on uppercut bag
3 rounds on double-end bag
15 minutes on cycle
After all of that, you can do your calesthenics for about 15 minutes total. (Pushups, situps, crunches, jumping jacks, etc)

We do this workout mon thru thursday. 4 days a week.
When your first learning, you need to practice proper punching technique, footwork and movement. You shouldnt feel the need to move at a fast pace, as you want to learn correctly. Do it slowly at first and get your muscles and brain used to throwing punches properly, and then you will gradually speed it up and use more power as you develop. Check the other stickied threads at the top of the training and nutrition section as they may be an aid to you as well.

I would also recommend trying to get to a local gym if possible, as you'll find good instruction, and someone to show you what your doing wrong/right to help keep you on track in the right direction.

Best of luck to you, and feel free to ask any more questions you may have.
