Don't try to be fancy with it, slow down and get your movements right, then, start addind speed, sometimes you're shots are compact and snappy, and then they're wide and sort of pushing, work your jab to set up combos, dom't just throw the combos out there simply because, and return youthands to your gaurd every time, no need for wide slips either, keep it compact and sharp, keep working at it, we all are.

I usually don't comment on things like this but I'm going to help you out.

First, you need to tie that thing tighter, a double end bag needs to have rebound to it. It needs to be tight enough to where you can hit and it comes back to you so you can work defense and offense at the same time.

Second, don't hit it so hard. The double end bag is not a tool that is for power, it's for speed and reflexes. It's to get a nice rhythm with the jab and set up upper cuts and straight shots.

I would recommend looking on youtube to see how some fighters use it. You are trying to hit it hard or look good doing it and it's a tool for something completely different.

At least he has the height set right.

And yes it should bounce back to you and hit you if your defense is down.

I have this bag as well and it helped me with gaining the snap in my punches.

firstly don't dance around while your not hitting it, secondly after you trhow each punch your hands come back to your face they don't go down then back up

just terrible. When you bob and weave you're actually supposed to be avoiding the bag, not a ghost. The bottom line is acting like an anchor, the bag has no action and you direly need to tighten it if you hope to get any real benefit from training with it. Furthermore, you punch with decent form but you're slower than molasses and you're not as good as you seem to think from watching your body movement
