    Default Shadow Boxing Combinations

    Hi, Ive been practising my shadow boxing twice a week for past few months now, i can do the basics (left jab,right,bodyshot, uppercut, hooks etc). Ive been tryin combinations out such as {right uppercut, left uppercut, right hook} but i want to incorporate more advanced combinations consisting of 6 or 7 punches in one go that are in random order but will keep my technique looking good, and improve my speed.
    Can someone please post some combinations that they prefer or pratice themselves that I could try.

    Thanks in advance

    Hussein

    huss my man (you dont mind if i call you hus do you? good...)
    everything should work off the jab, as its the fastest punch and disrupts the guard.

    realistically you shouldnt be throign 6 punches, shadow boxing is meant to perfect technique etc.
    3-4 shots are the most you should be throwing, but if you insist...

    quick code...
    1 = jab
    1- = jab to body
    2 = cross
    2- = cross to body
    3 = left hook
    3- = left hook to the body
    4 = right hook
    4- = right hook to body
    5 = left uppercut
    5- = left uppercut to the body
    6 = right uppercut
    6- = right uppercut to body

    1, 1, 2-, 3-, 1, 2 <----- that will rape their guard!
    1, 3, 3-, 4-, 6 <------- thats gonna knock somone for 6!
    1, 2-, 1, 2 <---- fast, hard to block, score some serious points
    1, 2, 1 <-------often overlooked, a real killer, nearly imporrile to block that final jab

    Nice combos alex im going to use your guick code if you dont mind.
    heres what i like to do
    1-,1,3<--- Nice since your using the same arm it feels funny but i've found it works good
    1,1,2,1,4<------ then if im feeling really good flow i'll through in a upper cut.
    1.3,5,4<---- I realy like using the same arm type punches like jab, to left hook to left uppercut because i don't think you see enought of them.
    and when im going the last 30 secs of my 2 min shadow boxing rounds heres my finisher i try to through around 20 punches in a row just to get a good finish
    1,1,2,1,3,4,5,4,3,6,2-,1-,1,1,2,3-,1,2,1,6,1,1<-----kinda how i do it i never really think about, big thing i work on is throughting lots of jabs and throughin same hand combos because i feel once you get those to flow nice and clean they are really usefull.
    Well i hope this helps some

    odd as it may sound, different weights will have different styles.
    welterweight and below thend to use more pnches to the head, and use the bdy as only a scorer. once you get past welter (miffle super middle, light heavy, cruiser, heavy and superheavy) then you start to use body punches to hurt and slow down your opponent.
    if your lighter you may not have the power to blast the air out of your opponent with hard body shots, and they may leave little lasting damage, whereas head shots will have a significant impact.

    When shadowboxing, don't forget the otherguy. By that I mean keeping track of what your opponent would be seeing while you are punching away., or what you would be seeing were your opponent punching at you. The mirror is a great tool. Also what do you do to get in place to throw combinations- a feint, a slip or a parry? Is he punching in the middle of your sequences? These are the things that count. If at all possible look up a book called In This Corner by Peter Heller I think (help, somebody?) and read what Tommy Loughran has to say about training in general and shadow boxing in particular.
