in light of the sparring thread what are your favorite drills to do on the heavy bag. mine have to be sprints. where you just do 1-2 combos the whole time. or just hooks or just uppercuts.

Definitely body shots. Couple each side then switch it and just repeat 'till knackered.
That and punchouts as mentioned in the first post. aving said that I don't often do many drills but rather work "freestyle", moving around the bag throwing combos.

For a time, every once in a while, I would try to 'build' combinations on the bag. For instance: jab. Jab, cross. Jab, cross, L hook. Jab, cross, L hook, R hook...and so on and so forth. It did help me come up with a few interesting combos, but I do think it had more to do with entertainment then actual work.
I really like doing rounds on the bag that are just jabs. Moving in and out of range, circling and just jabbing as hard and as clean as I can. To make it more dynamic and realistic I throw in right hand feints.

I actually have a workout structured around just these kinds of drills. Mainly for when I am short on time and can't make it to the gym. (that happens a lot recently)
10 count combos. jab, jab-cross, jab-cross-lead hook, jab-cross-lead hook-cross, etc. just keep adding crosses or hooks until you get to ten and then work your way back down.
10 count jab. think of the above drill but with nothing but the jab
punch out drills
Body shot round. a.k.a. the cage drill.- change levels like you are going for a body shot, now stay that way and hit the bag normally for a round. Works the legs pretty good
Power shots. Basically what it sounds like, just throw power hooks and straights for a round. Try not to stop.

I do cut kicks while holding the bag. Then I suplex the bag. Rinse and repeat.

Sometimes I do two minute rounds, adding in a new element each time. I'll start with straight boxing, then add in other hand strikes, then forearms and elbows, then shoulder strikes and headbutts, then knees and kicks. By the end I'm working the whole arsenal, even though the upper body strikes end up getting the most development (which I think is for the best anyway). If I have the time, I work the heavy bag on the ground, switching the position every minute. Sometimes I work various throws on one of my old bags- suplexes, reaps, hip/head and arm throws, and lifting double legs. I'll do rounds of continuous throws. I used to also do stickwork on the bag, but I think its why my heavy bags kept getting destroyed so I stopped that a few years ago.
