A Must Have Training Tool: The Punching Bag
By Marko • September 14, 2017 • Uncategorized
Every single boxer, martial artist, and full contact fighter out there will tell you that training on the punching bag is ESSENTIAL to developing power into their techniques.
Most people out there think that training on the heavy bag involves just throwing a couple punches over and over again. To get the full benefit from your training though involves much more work.
For example, developing automatic combos is one thing that you can hone in on with the heavy bag.
Another useful technique it helps to develop is circling. What I practice is punching and moving around in circles around the bag as I kick. The same goes for my round house training.
I’ll start in one spot and choose one leg to kick, and kick with that leg while I circle around the bag until I run out of steam. That’s a very crucial skill you must learn to position yourself correctly when transitioning into a round house.
The benefits are endless, which is why I am going to be updating this blog frequently with training methods, info on the punching bag, martial arts news, boxing news, etc.
Stay tuned, as this is going to be a huge site.
