Round 5.

3 Minutes Shadow Boxing.  Throw whatever combinations you like to throw with an extreme emphasis on your weight transfer,  feeling balance and activity in both legs.  Try to move in every direction.  Be creative!  You need to be spontaneous in fights, and in your training.

60 Seconds Rest

Round 6.

3 Minutes Shadow Boxing - Push your pace in this round.  You should be tired by the 2 minute mark, and then have to push through the third minute.  Be patient with yourself.  Combinations aren't just going to flow right off the bat, you have to work at this game a little bit!

Then you're done... go eat a banana and tell everyone how awesome I am.

And say something.  Talking to other people is one of my many hobbies.
