Bring both fists up by your face in guard. Hold your shoulders and core in tight. Keeping your left hand by your face, punch the air with your right. Extend your arm until it's straight but without locking your elbow (pictured). Quickly bring your right hand back as you punch with your left. Do a left-right-left, right-left-right series of punches using a 1-2-3 count. Punch as quickly as you can. Do 3 sets of 3 minutes each.
Fight tip: Punching the air and punching a person are two very different feelings (so I'm told) but shadow boxing is a great way to practice proper punching form, work on your speed, and get your heart rate up.
