    any tips?

    mainly for exercise and for shoulder exercise

    just dont want to hyperextend my elbow or dislocate my fingers,etc.

    I just mainly just do 2 punch jab combos as hard as i can over and over Im not that fit so it gets the heart rate up and body punches. I dont do too many hooks because i sometimes graze it and hurt the little knuckles. I do a few roundhouse to the hips but have to watch out I dont kick my toe on the boxing stand.

    i get tension headaches as well afterwards.

    I find that a good half hour of hitting tree bark is good for toughening up the knuckles and getting in better shape

    Hitting as hard as you can with bad form and no gloves might get you hurt.

    Do rounds. Pace yourself so you can go a full 3 minute round and count how many times you hit the bag. Then each day you increase the number of punches. If you just punch yourself out in 30 seconds you won't really see any improvements.

    :dunno:
    bad job wrapping hands
    poor form
    keeping hands too loose at impact


    my advice to the dude is to download an instructional on how to propperly wrap hands.
    download instructional on very basics of boxing technique.
    and Do not hit the heavy bag 100% until you know exactly what you are doing. it is so damn easy to hurt yourself if you dont know what you are doing.

    Do one minute punch out drills. or 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off. hard and intense.

    Simple beginning bag work:

    5 - 5 minute rounds
    1st round - Jabs
    2nd round - Jab + Straight (1-2 Combo)
    3rd round - Jab + Straight + Hook (1-2-3 Combo)
    4th round - Jab + Straight + Hook + Straight (1-2-3-4 Combo)
    5th round - Knees (Bottom and Side of Bag)

    Rest 1 minute between each round. When you get to the point that you don't feel like passing out after round 5 try to work backwards to round 1 for another 5 rounds. You can also do stretches or wall sits to strengthen your legs between rounds when you no longer need the 1 minute of rest. When you can do 10 rounds and wall sits between each round you're in pretty good shape. I'd also recommend either finding some instructionals on proper technique or doing one private lesson with an instructor. Otherwise your just practicing bad technique.
