    I use a few different ones
    1, 50 punches (any) 30sec break
    2. 3 min punching 1min break
    3. Mitts I mainly use for combos and timing usually 3min rds 1 min break
    4. my favorite 10 hard 10 light puches repeat for 3 mins 1min break..

    Here is a good one from our women's kickboxing class:

    I guess remove the kicks or substitute if you're only working boxing.

    When I am at home working out by myself:

    I stetch/warm-up for about 5 mins... Then I go about 5 minutes at 50% going through every strike in my arsenol 10x each working on technique (jab, right cross, hook, overhand right, upper cut, elbow strikes, knees, low kicks, mid/body kicks, high kicks). Then I do 3x3-5 minute rounds at a hard pace working on different combinations (rest 1 min between rounds)....

    Question: What do you guys use for timing?? At home, I haven't got anyway to actually time my "rounds" or my rest period, so I just consider 1 song on the stereo to be a round (most songs I play are 3-5 mins long)... I pretty much guestimate the rest period....

    You can get a kitchen timer at Walmart or something for less than $5 usually. They have beeps or alarms when the time is up. They are the kinds we usually use at my gym because they are so easy to replace. Something like this:
