Crimson, Antagony if you are refering to my post, let me explain. The 1st two drills I described are done in a squared off stance similar to a horse stance. Secondly they are used, at least in my gym to, build up punching endurance. The goal of the drill and the stance is that both arms get worked out evenly. If you are in a fighting/boxing stance you would work out the foward differently than the rear hand. Now the last drill I described is done in a boxing stance, but it is done after the first 2 drills so your arms are pretty tired. And when I say your arms I mean my arms, and when I say tired I mean barely keep them up.

so far the way I've been taught to do the 'speed' drill is to keep your feet shoulder-distance apart (normal 'stance') and lift opposite legs to arms hitting the bag, and hit as quickly as possible without much power. What you should be doing with your legs is visualizing doing the 'tire run' that football players use.
So left arm hitting = right leg lifting.
That's just the way it was explained to me.

My recomendation. Sure, purchase a heavy punching bag for home use.
But join a decent martial arts school. Muay Thai, Kyokushin or another good striking style. Just do that and you can't go wrong.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!

We do the same drill, only we call them "sprints." They're done for 1 final round, after you've been working on the heavybag for at least an hr or so. At that point your arms are dead.
