JUST about every boxer out there does shadowboxing. You can do it just about anywhere, including within the comfort of your own home.

The reasons why they do it include the following:

1. It’s a great extension to warm up the specific muscles you will use in that boxing session.

2. It’s great for fighters visualizing an opponent.

3. It’s great for working on bad habits, such as dropping your hands down when you’re boxing.

4. It’s a great workout.
