Dont do it, Wear heavy gloves during shadowboxing.

Yeah big glowes is better, it will increase your endurance and it will make you feel faster and lighter when you go back to smaller gloves but it is more likely to make you slower, in the same way as you dont get faster by running upphill.

Go with a weight between 14-16 ounces that would probably be your best bet, Their are weight gloves such as these

I have never used them and dont know anyone who has, but to me they look like they would be uncomfortable and the weights would continously fall out, that is another alternative however I couldnt say I would recommend it either.

Boxing speed is like sprinting, weight wont encrease the speed, go fast on the bag, with short moment to train the short musle fibre.

I have done it for years and it helped my speed and power a lot.

Its only bad if your weights are too heavy.

i wouldn't recommend using weights until you have somewhat master the fundamentals and if u use weights make sure its lite and be careful not to injure yourself.

Commit to 3 days a week and on non sparring days.
Shadow Box a total of 6 rounds.
round 1 with 2lbs weights
round 2 with 1lbs weights
round 3 with 0 weights
round 4 with 2lbs weights
round 5 with 1lbs weights
round 6 with 0 weights

The first week will be the hardest as you will become arm weary.
by the 3rd week you will notice a huge gain in how well your punches snap off. To add muscle mass & strength begin taking the newest creatine available. C.E.X. It is a creatine ethyl ester.
This means zero water retention and weight gain. If you want anymore info you can cruise through my site. I dont sell anything or profit from anything so its free. It is how I communicate with the people I train.

It works great for me, I've even seen pictures of Golota shadowboxing with what looked to be 2 pound weights. I also punch with the barbell, developing my straight right hand power. I find that right after punchign with dumbells, my punches are a lot faster. Also, I use a 10 pound dumbell in practicing my hooks to the body, and it's worked great too.
