  • Heavier bag = more punching power ?

    Hi guys, i hope all of u are going good.

    My question today is about punching power. A friend told me once that when we punch a more heavier bag we get our wrist and forearms stronger and causing a more blunt power in our fists, is that true ?


    What u guys think about it ?

    It builds ALL of the muscles used for punching when doing it right.
    Be careful though, work hard on a bag that is too heavy for you and you could injure your shoulders...........Rockin'

        Punching power, it also a core workout.

        Heavy bag training is a Plyometric exercise, training a fighter to turn force into power.

        Power is being able to apply a force in the shortest amount of time 'The heavier the bag, the more force that needs to be used'.

        I would class heavy bag training pretty much as a full body workout, you can even adapt the workouts to work on aerobic conditioning & endurance, lactic thershold , and power etc

          Some of those old school Rocky 4 routines, too.

                work with a bag, I rather have a too heavy bag than a too light bag.

                Work with the bag, vary your power and gauge how hard you can handle and work with that for a while and as your body adjust and your tendons and connective tissue gets stronger (they are different than muscles) you can start hitting harder and harder without being prone to injuries.

                  For wrist, tendon, and ligament strength. You can use this

                    use both, a lighter bag will let you know you are pushing your punches and is a more elusive target and will force you to use your feet more as well
