    Well since you asked. You look like a guy who just walked up to a bag and started hitting it. Try moving with the bag and shadow boxing a little. Think about the bag as an opponent and think about what you are doing. Just doing any old combination on a static mass is not the same as moving and shifting your target and following the bag.

    In a fight sometimes you miss and sometimes you get hit so add that into your bag work. Let yourself miss then hit as you recover. Pretend to block shots then counterpunch.

    I mentioned not stopping the bag with your hand before but I can't stress that enough. In my old gym our coach would hit us with a Shinai if we steadied the bag. Learn the swing of the bag and hit it as it comes back. This will help train your timing and help you understand the direction of your power.

    Also strive to "fold" the bag. Swinging the back is weak. You are just pushing it if it swings all over the place. A real heavy hitter will have the bag bouncing on the chain and folding around their shots.

    I almost forgot. Keep your damn hands up. If your bag was an opponent it'd be KO city. If you are close to the bag guard your head. You can drop them a little if you are out of range.

    Also, your punches were haymakers. You swigf from the hip like Tank Abbot. Unfortunately you aren't big or scary enough to get away with that. Fire straight shots or turn your body and fire hooks. That in between thing you are doing is not effective.

    Those were my thoughts as well. I'd also avoid throwing those rear hooks - they're telegraphic and leave your face wide open.

    You keep your guard down too much, and when you throw punches you drop both hands as well. Never throw another punch until your other hand is back at your face ready to protect you.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    Anyway, after training I had my friend use my phone to take a quick video, unfortunately, my phone fucking sucks. Enjoy your 5 fps http://oregonstate.edu/~blackd/Videos/20-09-06_1341.3gp

    I'm invulnerable to any criticism; anything you think I need to do differently I was already doing in the frames you couldn't see.

    Hmm...

    1.) Hands up.

    2.) When punching to the body, drop your knees down and punch from that position so your chin is not as exposed.

    3.) Move your feet around the bag. When punching on the inside range, move your body and time your strikes so you hit as you land. Practice throwing your lead hook while stepping to the right and your rear hook if you are stepping to the left. This gets your head out of the same position.

    4.) You can throw rear hooks, ask Mike Tyson:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMrYm...elated&search=

    Problem is you gotta move like him and hit like him. His timing was so good you can see him throw a jolt hook from the rear, (jolt hook is a fancy way of saying jump at your opponent instead of stepping at him to quickly close the distance and get on the inside range), and land it for a knockout. Standing still and throwing it is an easy KO opportunity.

    5.) Move the head.

    6.) Return the punch immediately after throwing it.

    7.) Don't throw the second punch until the first punch is coming back into proper position. It looks like you're trying to throw two hands at once.

    8.) Practice throwing your punches over so that your shoulder is covering your chin.
