Here is the full Floyd Mayweather training plan.

Alternate Footing (Jump Rope) - Start with your right foot forward, your left foot slightly off the ground, and the rope behind you. Swing the rope over your head like you would do when normally jumping rope, and jump to your right foot. As the rope comes back around, jump off your right foot so that the rope passes under both feet and this time land on your left foot. Your right foot should not be touching the ground. When this exercise is done right, it will appear as if you are jogging through the jump rope rather than jumping with each rotation. The most difficult part of this exercise is getting your timing down. (For speed and agility) Jump rope for 5 minutes.

The Cross Over (Jump Rope) - For this exercise, start by jumping rope normally until you get a pace going, then start your cross over. Make sure that you cross your arms at waist height. As the rope passes over you, start to cross your hands. Your hands should reach the opposite sides near your hips at the same time the rope touches the floor. Jump, and then keep your hands still while the rope rises. Start to uncross as the rope reaches rotation above your head the second time. If done right, this exercise will appear as if you are jumping rope normally but crossing your arms during rotations. (For coordination and timing) Jump rope for 5 minutes.

Medicine Ball Catch - Practice with a partner by simply playing catch with a medicine ball. Do not throw the ball like a baseball, but rather keep a basic boxing stance throughout the entire exercise. Use both hands to push the ball off your chest using a shove motion. (Hand coordination, hand speed, resistance) Play catch for 5 minutes.

Jumping Jacks - A classic exercise that improves foot speed greatly for a boxer. Also gives arms a "free" workout. Jumping jacks for 3 minutes.

Heavy Bag + Speed Bag - This one is a given. It is best to first learn the basics of throwing a proper jab, uppercut, hook, and straight before training with punching bags. Heavy bag to work on striking and power. Speed bag for hand speed. Do heavy bag for 10 minutes and speed bag for 5 minutes.
