I need to lose a few pounds, have a good, lean muscle definition underneath, just need to ose maybe 5-7 lbs of fat. I hate running and only do high intensity because it makes me bored, running does. My friend does kickboxing or muai thai and told me to just do shadow boxing at a high pac for 12-15 minutes and that it burns A LOT of fat. I just started doing it this week and for 12 minutes/3 days a week. My pulse rate gets up to around 16/17 beats per 6 seconds which is around 80% rate I believe. Since it's my first week, can't tell if I've lost fat yet but will keep it up for 4 weeks. Also eating 200 calories less each day to help. What do you guys think about shadow boxing?

Good alternative to running for sure, running gets really old pretty quickly, especially if you go a long distance. The shadow boxing I think would be just as effective for what you're looking to do.*****Learn 10 INSANELY Easy Techniques to Reduce Weight FAST*****

Shadow boxing is fine but hitting a heavy bag is far more satisfying.http://infinutrition.com - Complete fitness and personal training platform. Visit us or contact me for more information.
