Here's mine:

- start with a 3 mile run outside
- 3 rounds of shadow boxing
- 4 rounds on heavy bag
- three rounds on mitts w/ trainer
- 3 rounds on mexican double end bag
- 3 rounds on speed bag
- finish with 3 rounds of jump rope

*after by boxing workout ill hit usually go to the weight room and do pushups and work on 2 body parts ( i.e. chest/ biceps)

Totally depends on the following factors:
1.) If I have access to a gym/training resources.
2.) If I'm feeling lazy/not motivated.
3.) If I have time.
4.) My current shape/skills.

Typically if I don't have many resources (at home), I try to do:

Running or biking (how long/far depends on many things)
Loosen up/warm-up/stretching - 10 minutes
Shadowboxing: 2x3 minute rounds with 30 second break between rounds.
Jeff Fenech's arm endurance workouts: 2 rounds weighted, 2 rounds free.
Slip bag with shadowboxing: 10 minutes
Jump rope: 5 minutes

Warm down: 10 minutes

Sit-ups: 100
Crunches: 100
Oblique sit-ups: 200
Squats: 100
Neck exercises: 10 minutes.

When in the above phase, I don't do running or biking too often. Maybe 1/3 days.

Now if I have access to a gym or proper equipment and I'm in ideal shape and motivated and have weeks of free time, I try to aim for:

6 AM:
Running 3-5 miles.

12 PM
Loosen up/warm-up/stretching - 15 minutes.
Shadowboxing: 3x3 minute rounds with 30 second break between rounds.
Punch mitts: 3x3 minute rounds with 30 second break between rounds.
Heavy bag: 5x3 minute rounds with 30 second break between rounds.
Slip bag: 10 minutes total.
Speed bag: 15 minutes.
Jump rope: 15 minutes.

Warm down/break: 10 minutes

Sit-ups: 100
Crunches: 100
Oblique sit-ups: 200
Push-ups: 100
Squats: 100
Neck exercises: 10 minutes.

But that only happens about one or two months per year.

I might have left out a couple things, but that's the meat of it.
