I do 5 rounds of each. When I shadowbox, I do three rounds with bands, and two rounds without, trying to maintain a high punch output on either.

On the heavy bag, I do 5 rounds.

shadowboxing i only do 3min x 3 rounds. I just shadbox to warm-up and cool-down.

On the heavy bag I do 3min x 6 rounds.

I shadowbox a lot, i think it's one of the best thing to do in training. You can practice your footwork, combinations, technique, handspeed etc etc. I often do like 8-10 rounds. But you have to think what your doing, not just throw punches with no meaning.

Countless rounds son. Countless.....

I just set a time limit let's say 2 hours. And within those 2 hours i do whatever i can. Shadowbox, jump rope, speed bag, double end bag, heavy bag, more shadowboxing, abs, and conditioning. All this while the clock's tickin.

Sometimes it's good to write out a workout regiment. That way you can take advantage of all your time.

I would have argued that a wall to ceiling ball is better for technique training than bag work or shadowboxing because you are dealing with a fast moving object, you can refine your jab and combinations there as well as your footwork and defense.

^ i have to semi-agree with that. shadow boxing is very important to me but i only use it to warm up and cool down. heavy bag is good to develop strong punching power, work on techniques, conditioning, and also developing overall strength. but i found my self benefiting from the double end bag more than shadow/heavybag. practicing on that bag help me improve my slips, blocks, and head movement dramatically. i think its the more practical bag, simulates an aggressor the best.

Yes!! Very much so. It also helps with angles and head movement.
