Default improving hand speed and left hook??!!

Im 23 and new to boxing although boxing has been my favourite sport all my life iv just never had the confidence or bottle to join a gym so stuck to football.

I use my heavy bag most nights (probably picked up alot of bad habits)!! I sometimes feel like my hand speed is sluggish and being right handed my left hook feels akward to throw. whats the best way to improve my hand speed ?

Definitely. New people join boxing gyms everyday without any knowledge of the sport at all.

fuk the videos and what anybody tells you here. Join a gym and you'll understand. To improve hand speed and your left hook you need proper training.

Speedball ..But then again it takes a lot of practise to even have a rythm.

I suggest try using very light dumbell when shadow boxing.something like 2lbs. but make sure it's a controlled punches or else you might hyper-extend.

You will see and feel the difference right away.
