First of all, welcome to KF!! Glad you're here!!

>Do you do any sparring at all? If you do, then don't ever stop. If you don't, then start sparring more often.

>Having said that, spar different practitioners because they don't attack/counter/defend the same.

>By yourself, hit the heavy bag often until it breaks, then buy another one, and beat it until it breaks, and then.....

>Work on different weighted bags. I'd encourage you to get a Thai bag because they're long and dense, and this will translate into powerful kicks. Of course, do the techniques correct, to begin with!!

>Work with a two-ended bag for timing, it'll pay for itself in the long run. Timing is crucial in all MA, but I suppose even more so in kickboxing.

>Run or swim a lot to build up your stamina. Change up the topography while running; up hill and things like that.

>Use a speed bag; speaks for itself, imho!!

>Mount a rope from one wall to another and walk its length while throwing upper-cuts, but stay tight to the rope while bobbing and weaving.

>Skip rope; a cheap yet valuable tool. Timing/rhythm can be garnered from this.

Hopefully what I've posted helps you with your solo training.

100% agree with Sensei8. That's all the advice you need! Just fit that into a schedule that works for you and train hard!
