They are a good tool though and I would start by simulating sparring. Basically use them to throw combos and counters to those shots. For example, slipping the jab and coming back with the right hand. Or catching the jab and firing the jab back.

Start basic until you get used to it. Those Roger Mayweather style mitts look real nice but I don't think you get much practical use outside of a good workout and hand eye coordination.

You can use the mitts for a ton of things though.
I'm not at the point where I can just improvise. I want a basic routine that will work for 3 minutes, I can then change it up in the next round.

What are some good, but basic, combinations and combinations mixed in with slips and weaves?

e.g. I throw a jab (one), my partner slips and then comes back with a two. OK, that's easy but I can't do that the whole round. I need to mix it up but I don't want to improvise and get the wrong technique.

Give me some easy combos that I can work with...
