thanks guys, constructive critism would be highly appreciated.

p.s when jump roping. how do you do the move where you take the handles and swing the rope side to side, then start jump roping again? Confused but would like to learn.

not bad for a guy never in the gym before. Better than guys i seen in the gym after several months

Throw the left hand up higher and straight across. Just return the left hand up higher and try to throw combinations with one punch at a time. One hand has to always be back at the chin. Work on throwing punches at different distances and adding more movement.

Jump rope i would relax more and do it longer then ramp it really hard at the lasst minute or so. That way the body is warmed up and tired before you go for that last push

Lol..Souza2012 - I am not physically able to join a gym for a while, and I am using the best resources I can to be better. I do not think I'm good. if I did I wouldn't bother asking for constructive critisim. Anyways, I assumed i'd get smart ass remarks, there are bad eggs in every basket. But thank you to ricecrispi who is actually trying to help.

i'm not good, just trying to get better

Ya skippings comming on but ya bag work needs improving A LOT. Throwing 8 punch combinations when your inexperienced dont mean ****. Try relaxing more, def more head movement when throwing ya shots and work on using a jab or the 1-2 instead of all that combination stuff at the moment. U need to dev a dominent assertive jab and a straight that the oposition is gonna respect.Oh and slow down for the time being and get the basics right.

-You should work on your foundation, you do not seem that stable on your feet.

-Keep your hands up when you hit the bag, its standing in front of you and not throwing back, you seem to throw your left without returning your right to proper position, and in a match you would get countered and countered and countered.

-Aim higher on the bag

-You shouldn't just hit the bag....bob, weave, chin down, hands up, time the bag movement.

Basically get to the gym and get quality training.

Maybe I came off a little bit confusing. I can not join a gym for weeks. BUT I own a heavy bag. I can either sit here and do nothing. Or I can at least try and condition myself. All I want to do is get extremely basic, but helpful feedback. Prolly 1/10 people on this board actually know what they are talking about, and I just wanted some quick replys on how I could improve ona really fundamental level. I understand a trainer would teach me all the ropes handson, but until then all I have is me...

Do I think I'm good? Of course not this is why I ask for help. The kind of replies that I was thinking was more on the lines of: my punching technique? combinations? wrong form? mix it up? etc.

I wasn't trying to make it a big deal, just hoping some people would help out.

work on your hooks man,and throw more bodyshots,too many power straight shots make you look one dimensional as far as offense goes.Your defense is decent as far as picking your guard up after throwing punches.I'd say just work more hooks into your arsenal along with bodyshots,looks like you got the footwork down pack and thats about it.

Well I am VERY appreciative for all the feedback. I definitely was not expecting so much. So basically I won't post another video for a little while I work on what I have collected from this thread - which includes:

- Relax
- Slow Down
- Work on Foundation
- Simple Combinations
- Create different distances
- Use body more for more powerful shots
- Develop dominent assertive jab and straight
- Throw left higher/straighter and return higher
---------------------------------------------------

Thanks again and I'll get working.
=> and join that gym asap :boxing:

you look good but you need to slow down alittle, work more on your technique and speed and power will follow. I couldnt see too well your feet but you looked like you had them underneath you next to one another not one in front of the other for balance. another minor thing also talking about your feet you didnt seem to be pivoting your back foot too much but that could also be because i couldnt see it too well until the end. Pivot that back foot when you throw that left cross and you will have more power and you wont be as off balance as you seem to be.

Throw punches higher on the bag and keep your hands up when you throw your punches you are suceptable to those counters if you dont.

skipping rope looked great, keep it up and maintain doing it for 3 minutes at a time or 10 minutes at once. you will increase your stamina and leg power that way as well and we all know legs are very important for boxing.

You looked good though bro for someone never to a gym, with alittle work you could be something special in there with that natural ability you already have. Good luck
