View Full Version : Heavy bag/technique with video

06-29-2011, 10:44 PM
Hi guys, I have been a member on the site for some time but not active as such due to studies etc.

Now that that is done I do like to box recreationally and for fitness as I take great interest in the sport both past and present. I have uploaded a short video of me doing a little hitting on the bag;


Any comments/advice on technique etc would be greatly appreciated...

first and biggest mistake: you stand way too close to the bag. Use your reach on the jab and the cross.

second: twist into the cross, you're just throwing it with your arm. Use your body

third: turn into the hook

Put more of your body into your punches starting from your legs, that sounds like a solid bag. I like the way chains jingle after each punch it suonds bad ass... reminds me of mario.

way too close, make sure you're getting full extension on your punches,

relax a bit more, look a bit tight

Lossen up a bit... in order to loosen up i bounce on my feet lightly. try to use your legs when you punch to. Looks like ur not turning on punches. so Turn your punches.
