    Shadow boxing for cardio

    Hey guys, just wondering how good of a cardio workout shadow boxing is? How long should I be aiming to do this for? And also would it be bad not to do any leg cardio (running)? Any tips are welcome!

    I don't know about shadow boxing but I hit a heavy bag for about 8 3-5 minute intervals and in this interval go straight up berserk on the bag. Also, work on combinations but I punch as hard as I can and it gets my heart racing. I break a good sweat and it feels a lot better than running.

    If my spirit and will tame the carnal desires of my body, I can make it into something better than it would ever become on its own. I will not be conquered.

    Shadow boxing is great.

    throw in some

    burpees
    push ups
    squat jumps
    running on the spot
    skipping
    search plyometrics

    Train in intervals. Work for a minute rest for 30 seconds or 3 minutes if your training to box.

    Shadow boxing can be a good HIIT cardio workout. Best to get a timer of some sort and go hard (really hard) for a round (3 or 5 minutes) then rest a short time (1 minute or so) and repeat a few times. You just have to keep up the intensity.

    I shadow box but punching with 5lb dumb bells. I have the non metal exterior ones. Really draining after a while. I usually mix it up with pull ups and push ups and leg lifts though.

    Shadow boxing is a great cardio.. Go really hard for 3-5 minutes 3-5 rounds by mixing combinations of punching, kicking, kneeing, elbowing, etc.. Rest for a minute between rounds
