As I now work at a gym I also have a key and looking to go in by myself about 3 days a week maybe to solo work....looking for drills or ANYTHING to do to work defense and even footwork. I have access to voice recorders,mirror,tape,bags,all boxing equipment just not a partner as the whole point is going in alone to get a quick session in. Any help would be great thank you
Not that I'm an expert or anything, but i've two suggestions.
1) Use a slip bag for head movement. If your gym doesn't have one, you can make your own. Look here for instructions.
2) Get into the habit of incorporating head movement when you hit the heavy bag eg. ducking after jabbing.

Hope this helps.
