Shadow boxing is for amateurs never really helps at all except if you don't have that basic instinct (or the name you call it) of what to throw. It is mostly for show.

Brock Lesnar will be the #1 ranked fighter, and will be best fighter ever.

Favorite fighters:

HW = Lesnar
LHW = Arona / RAMPAGE
MW = Filho
WW = Koscheck
LW = Ruediger

Imagine that you are facing an opponent. Start out easy. You don't want to go balls out, but you can build up to a pretty good pace. Depending on your fitness, maybe start with 1 or 2 five minute rounds or 3 or 4 three min rounds. Whatever works for you. Move around the ring or mat as if you were sparring. Throw your techniques. Throw combinations. Faint. Move side to side. Circle left. Circle right. Advance. Retreat. Throw punches singly and in combination. Throw kicks singly and in combination. Combine punches and kicks. Evade. The idea is to practice all of the skills that you will use while sparring, only without an opponent. Try to simulate what you would do in a fight. Rock on!

I disagree that this is only for amatuers. Pros do shadow boxing all the time. Its all about getting your technique down on certain moves you need to do before you try it against someone else. its the same with pad/bag work.

Also if you shadow box with small hand weights in your hands you build up your punching speed alot. I usually use 3lb. hand weights and hold them above my forehead line, so I get used to keeping my hands up with that weight and while I'm sparring my hands won't drop down as much in the latter rounds.

You are blessed by the hand of your free chosen god

Roy Jones Jr Shadow boxes during training. Is he an Amateur??? So do Nick Diaz, Kenny Florian and Mike Swick, are they Amateurs?
Anyway I have been doing Muay Thai for a while now and I shadow box for about 20 minutes before pad work and Sparring. I do it in front ofa and mirror and hit my reflection in the face. It's basically to work on Hand Eye Coordination and get warmed up for the training session.
