If I told you I have a brilliant boxing workout that you can do anywhere, anytime with no equipment, it would make you scratch your head and say “REALLY?” Yes It’s called shadow boxing, and on this video I show you exactly how to do it!
If you do boxing for fitness or even if you’re a high level fighter, you should be shadow boxing
There are a few massive benefits to punching fresh air and I don’t think there is a professional boxer around the world who doesn’t do it.
Here are 4 reasons why you should shadow box.
- It’s a great extension of your warm up, working up the specific muscles you’re going to be using for your boxing session
- It’s great to work on a specific drill or bad habit, to help you improve
- It can be a great workout, and if you shadow box at high intensity you will be blowing out of your arse
- You can shadow box at the end of your session, it can be a great cool down and also visualization.
