The Essential Training Tool: The Punching Bag
By tryptic.eye1655 • October 24, 2017 • Uncategorized
Every single boxer, martial artist, full contact fighter out there will tell you that training on the punching bag is ESSENTIAL to a develope dangerous techniques.
A lot of people out there think that training on the heavy bag involves throwing a couple punches over and over again. And while that may be true on the surface, there is so much more that can be done with it.
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.
