pretty good man, but whoever told you that bag is 140 should be shot. MAYBE 100

you got great hand speed! What weight class do you fight in? That looks like 100 lb bag. Unless it has lead in it! Good snap at the end of your punches also. If you fight in the upper weight classes, you need to learn to punch through you target...hurt that mother-****er!!! Other than that, I'm impressed

the problem with low quality video is, just that, it's low quality. it hides a lot of detail and can make something seem faster then it really is cause it has to play catch up so to speak. especialy trying to record another recording.


that was a light bag.

Nice work, if you want constructive criticism, perhaps be a bit more active on the bag.... nice punch techniques though... the best shot you threw was the right hand after the little flurry on the inside. You just threw a left hook to the body and then bam! right hand over the top.

Nice work. :cool:

Ya you looked iight man all i would have to say is move your head more you had a series in there where you went low and were bobing and weaving plus throwing punches that looked good, but your no Wlad Klit so try and throw more then just that left right combo!

your stance seems to stiff to me something about it was not right. I dont know you just didnt look like a natural fighter in there. You looked pretty good thogh. And that bag was no more than 100.

Thank you very much. i appreciate it.



BTW i'll try to get more vids up and better quality for those who remain skeptic's . :boxing:

And why is everyone telling me the bag aint 140? give or take five pounds, thats what the manufacture said it would be around.

Those saying the bag wasnt even a 100# is an insult.

thing is, you really cant make a clear judgement from someone punching bag.e.g. George Foremen (RUmble in Jungle) throwing body rip after body rip after body rip on the bag ---> u couldnt tell if he was any good from looking at him punch a bag. anyways, good work man, keep up the training.

I can see how people could assume that, but nope, 140#s

Well its doesnt even matter. I wasnt trying to show that i could move this bag around like a ragdoll, just showing u all a quick little workout.



and if two bags weigh the same but one is filled with water and the other with sand; are u telling me the bag with water is easier to move :confused:

thats exactly what im saying. i've hit both and the 1 with water is easier cause your punch is obsorbed in the water area which makes the impact more great instead of a solid concrete punch of a sand bag

A 75lb bag is a female's bag man.

That thing is for excersise only, and I only use the one I have to volume punch on. It flies everywhere and I can't get any work done whatsoever.

I'm comfortable working with the 125 Everlast I have.

It may be true but it's still a 140lb bag.

And why is everyone hating on me for this?

is it really hard to believe that the bag is 140lbs and moving around like that? I weigh 170lbs and im sure plenty of people could do that.

oh no i belive u now. i was jus tellin u how they react when being hit. if u see that video with tyson hitting the bag u can see that the chain is really sturdy and short so it wont be flying everywhere. but yeah i believe u.

Dude.

I believe you. I know this....because that bag is big.

Not to mention, you were wearing thick gloves and that adds alot of mass to your punches.

Just stating the obvious but a water bag like that might not be all the way filled up. Not hatin, anyways this is pointless to debate the weight of the bag so i quit, ha.

I doesn't really matter how much the bag weighs. Whether or not it weighs 140 who cares, power shouldn't be measured from how much a heavybag weighs anyways. I thought you looked very good, your relaxed and you have nice fast straight punches. If you through punches like that in combinations it doesn't matter whether or not you even have power, because you are going to be able to catch guys with punches that they don't see coming and that will hurt them. I am impressed, keep up the good work.

Good hand speed, poor mixture of punches (too much straight stuff), too much resting (need to keep moving side to side and keep punching), good power assuming you are hitting where you are aiming. Need to change levels, move head more, bob and weave, etc.

There no way that's a 140 pound bag more like a 65 pound bag. You got some good movement but you would still get kill anyone.

lol how is that an 80lb bag?

You guys are hillarious.


80lb bag is useless. I make it come off the hinges every time I throw a 3 punch combo.

My friend has one. Its ****ing impossible to train on. The ****er swings all the way up to the sealing, more dangerous cause you have to run from it, cause it'll swing right back in your face.

All I can do is give it a shot then put my guard up and await impact lol....and I cant punch it more cause then it will just come off or start swinging around the room in mad fashion.
