    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Just Bought A Heavy And Speed Bag. What Is A Good Routine To Do?

    To get in shape and to proactice MA, I went ahead and bought a heavy bag that had a speed bag attachment, so I figured I might as well get the speed bag.

    I have worked out the last two nights and realize just how out of shape i am in (insert fat smilies here).

    What I have been doing is jab, cross, hooks, and elbows. Then doing kicks mixed in.

    I do a mix of single punches, single kicks, and combos. I will do say 20 of each type, then do X number of combos, move around, etc...

    What I was hoping for was a routine that someone has that I can follow.

    Does anyone have a link to a routine they do or can list one here?

    Thanks

    ...Well, the best thing to do would probably be to go take a few lessons at a boxing gym (assuming you just want to learn a workout routine and not really get into boxing/MT) and ask them all the questions you can think of. Hell, you might actually really get into it and enjoy the training. You could also try this guy's website:

    http://www.rosstraining.com/

    or

    http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=rossenamait

    (same guy)

    He has some pretty cool home workout stuff as well. Personally I like to warm up by shadow boxing for a couple of rounds. Then do a round of just jabs but with movement. After that I open up to combos, but always with movement. In and out and lateral. Unless you're trying to learn something very specific I feel like it's sort of detrimental to just stand in front of the bag and throw punches one at a time. There are a number of people from GA in this forum I'm sure if you're interested someone can point you in the direction of a good gym.

    Bas Rutten's Kickboxing or MMA Workout are excellent if you go all out and don't cheat.

    10 3 min rounds consisting of all the combos you train works for me. single punches are all right, but working combos for power and speed are probably the best use of your time.

    In boxing movies and anime, in regards to the speedbag I only see people do that rolling motion with their fists, is that to build tempo? Do people do anything else with it? I realize putting more power into it or using more RoM would slow it down too much, but I wonder if gradually very good guys slowly use more RoM as their speed develops?
