Just filmed a small part of the end of my bag work, did 6 rounds at that pace. I'm 6 foot 3, 225lbs. Just wondering if any trainers on here can give me a little feedback (I know it's not much), I've never been trained, just a massive hardcore helmet. I'm 19 and looking to start getting down and dirty.

Any help lads :)

First thing I notice is that you are not tucking your chin in and after every jab your hands come back to your sides, They need to be coming back to your head.

Keep that lead hand up mate until you learn how to slip and slide and get some good head movement going on, might feel nice shooting a jab like that on a heavy bag as it's faster and looks nice but soon as you get punched in the mouth a few times you won't find it so appealing. There's a reason most boxers don't shoot their jab from the waist mate :)

You've got some good ideas for a untrained beginner and your actually doing quite a lot of things that would serve a more accomplished boxer switching, baiting a punch and throwing the right hand, mixing your leads, pivoting... however its all a mess because you haven't got the basics in the right place yet.

The movement is ok for now but you have no drive or form when you are punching, and you have no shape to speak of, just an imitation of it... which is fine- if you were 40kgs and 11 year old... thats how most learn.

At 19 if you really want to do it, you MUST find a good one to one coach and train with them at least once a week for any chance of progression and the opportunity to accumulate enough knowledge without having to make the many years of mistakes. Good luck, not a bad video at all.
