    If there are an odd number of sets - which is almost always the case - I'll do the first one switching lead-hand halfway through, then alternate the remaining sets. So Set 1 = L/R, Set 2 = L, Set 3 = R, etc.

    dco326 ... it can be hard to switch leads each rep. Boxers will train that way to add foot-mobility to their exercise.
    Few - if any - non-boxers need that level of precision or 'balance', but you may want to try for it.
    As TheRaven said: that's up to you.
    You want to get up on your toes and switch back and forth every rep? Good for you! Or you can go flatfooted, like me, and switch once (~halfway through).
    Or somewhere in between!

    That's really up to you.

    Some people prefer alternating sides on every rep. Other people like to do half of the reps with one side and the other half with the other side. Then there are people that only switch sides after half of the sets.

    Every variation has its pros and cons. Not changing sides will keep the load on the muscles and will fatigue them even more / faster. Changing sides on every rep will let your muscles recover on the fly and thus won't fatigue them as much or not as fast, but doing this will add another component of endurance / balance / coordination as you have to switch your stance as well. The stance change will usually be done via a small hop which adds up pretty quickly - your endurance will definitely notice it. You're basically adding another small exercise inbetween every single rep.

    As I said: it's all a matter of personal preference.
    When we're recording workout videos we usually change sides on every rep.

    You change your arms every single punch/hook, what ever. Start with the right - left - right - left and so on. For combos like jab + cross, i would recommend to change the forward foot half way through.

    At the bottom of the Darebee page, there is a spot where you can look at workout videos and you can see how each workout is done. It is a helpful visual aid. Usually things like hooks, and punches, both hands are used in an alternating way.
