I've heard mixed reviews, I've tried them dont like them. I woke up one morning with bad tennis elbow that wouldnt go away from the previous day using them....

They can be pretty harsh on your body....It would be better if you shadowboxed with gloves on.

I agree... Shadowbox with heavy gloves on instead it's safer and much more realistic!

I agree that women aren't cut out for fighting. Not cuz I'm a sexist, the physical proof is just there.

i think shadow boxing with weights wears down ur shoulder muscles and will make them get tired faster during a fight!! when i boxed i hardly used weights!! plus, the power is in ur legs!!!

They we're trained for that. But put any of them, the creme de la creme of women boxers and pit them with ANY top p4p fighters and seriously, tell me, who would get busted up? Not to gloat but my point being was if I was training and boxing all my life, I wouldn't give them a chance.

Like in any other sports. WNBA players can kick my ass in basketball but pit them against an NBA team and see how they fare.

Git what I'm saying?

True but you have to consider most if not all are masculine sports. I have no doubt in my mind though those 4 boxers could take some of the guys, but you cant trash them for wanting to do it, You have to accept equality if that is their wish so be it.

Shadowboxing with weights is fine if all you want to get out of boxing is more endurance... & to sculpt your arms a bit.

But, if you're gonna actually compete, I wouldn't advise it.
It throws off your timing.
It slows down the movement of your hands....& you want to keep the rest of your body in synch with your hands....


One of the worst things you can do is train & train & train with a bad habit. This would be similar to that.

that is correct..

and i can assure you, there is many schools of boxing, all are good for different fighters and styles..

and in this light, shadowboxing with wights both can and can not be beneficial, depending on the overall sceme..

and if the arts of this shadowboxing technique is studied, i think most would find it of some value..

Weights are completely overrated.

I believe in training in a way that is closest to BOXING.

Boxing is about being LOOSE....having SNAP.


The only weight-training I'd encourage would be in order to build up one's lower half.

its nothign wrong jsut dont go ovewrboard

use 1 to 3 pounds weights
and jsut throw jabs

or work on yoru 1 2 to get the speed up

dont try 7 punch combos with 5 pound weights

take it easy and get your technique right and balance
use light weights 1-3 pound weights
and dont try and snap your punches as if it was a normal jab
