basically if you want to get used to the feeling of actual contact..just spar

It depends on the purpose of shadow boxing. If you are using it as a supplement to heavybad work then it can really increase your cardio and form.

Definitely not a complete training regimen, but it does work well as a supplement to a complete training schedule.
