you're not throwing your arms out to the end so you arent using your maximum reach stuff like that turns into a habbit and you take it in the ring. You got some nice speed for such a heavy guy.

could be that you arent warming up good enough. lift your shoulder and circle it forward 10 times and then 10 times backward so they get soft.

From what i've been told, youre not supposed to fully extend any punches when doing that kind of shadow boxing because it will lead to shoulder problems. its more for endurance and footwork/body movement technique. i cant tell the footwork from the clip, but the body movement looks pretty good. how long are you able to keep that pace up for?

dont extend your arm 100% because then it gets hyperextended

a fast pace liek that 20 mins

a slower but good pace liek 30+

if i have breaks i can do the fast pace for a while
jsut pushing myself and i have to have good footwork or i would have been off balance most of the time

and yeah i dont fully extend on shadow boxing because i dont want to hyper extend my elbows and shoudlers

i think everyone that fights should put up a clip of them shadowboxing or fighting or something. would be cool. people could critique their technique. could lead to some interesting pointers. just a thought. I know thats easier said than done though and it probably isnt a practical idea.

Looks good. Very quick for a 185 lber. If you can really keep that pace up for twenty minutes nonstop, then you have some good endurance as well.

Not dissing boxer2k5, but the video seems to be taken from a webcam, in which case anyone both fast or slow would seem fast. Until we see him in real life, we still have no idea how fast he is.

Boxer2k5, was it a webcam? Because a regular camcorder would give us a more accurate picture of your movement, since webcams are blurry.

Also, we don't know if any of those were "good" punches or just movement.

Boxer2k5, when you shadowbox, do you "punch" or just move it out?

P.S. Which one do you guys think is better for shadowboxing?

Ya, depending on how far "locking out" your elbow is, don't go too far or you will hyperextend your elbow. This is a killer if you hyperextend and then the bag swings back to hit your already hyperextended arm(ouch).

that handspeed is awesome! maybe the blurry thing makes it seem more impressive though.

jsut not as much blur

and its the same speed when lookign in the mirrors at the gym

im shadowboxing with wraps on
my hands fly
im used to hitting heavybag with
16ounce gloves 33 punches a round fro 5 rounds
im used to sparrign with 16 ounce glvoes
im used to throing hundreds of jabs for numerous rounds
with 3 pound weights

so punchign without commiting to it and no weights
i can punch real fast

i will buy a camcorder soon and i will most def be psoting everything i can
from training to sparrign to fights
