    Do push ups and sit ups on a regular basis.
    In my boxing classes my trainer makes me do them a lot.

    Breath out when you go up with a pushup or sit up and breath in when you go back down. Breathing is also very important with boxing. When you jab/punch you breath out and when someone punches you, you breath out aswell.

    As a first boxing exercise you could try to just do left and right jabs in the air. When you jab left, you step with your left foot forward and you breath out. Then jab right, step forward with your right foot at the same time and breath out.
    Theres also great youtube videos for beginner boxing and also for proper form with push ups and sit ups.

    Jep running is great, but running is also tough for your joints, so look at your own body and see how heavy you are and what feels right. The last thing you want is injuries. I developed a lot of injuries by trailrunning too many miles up and down the mountains. Never ran before and started doing crazy miles out of nowhere, learned from that :p

    Just start on a slow pace and don't run too long. Just start with a 1 or 2 mile jog.

    I'm 15 and I've boxed for a while. The classes are like 20% skill work and 80% conditioning and fitness. Push ups, sit ups and skipping are the main exercises they made us do along with a lot of bag and mitt work. You probably don't have a partner to do mitt work with, but I saw this tennis ball product you can buy that attaches to your head with a string. It builds your hand to eye coordination and punch accuracy. Bag drills consisted of repetitive punch combinations such as jab-cross-hook, cross-hook-uppercut, etc. Another bag drill was just punching the bag as hard and as fast as you can nonstop for 30 seconds (or more if 30 seconds is too short). For skill work, you should look up tutorials on YouTube and try to master them. Punching correctly is very important. Make sure to always wrap your hands and wear big gloves when you do heavy bag work or else you could injure your hand badly like I did. One of my knuckles on my right hand still hurt till this day after injuring it 2 years ago by punching the bag without gloves. Anyway good luck!
