    Default Heavy bag? what's the point?

    Hey, was wondering, why use a heavy bag at all? Could you not just shadowbox and do sparring instead? Or am I misising something blindingly obvious? :

    i think it improves ur punching power and is better for pratcing punches on a hevy bag as it iz a hard surface to hit

    but im not to sure though

    What an insightful post, and so helpful too! All im saying is you could get power and speed gains from excercising, shadowboxing and sparring!

    when you hit a sparring partner/ pads or shadow box,
    the resistant your punch get will be less than working the heavy bag.
    this helps you build up your punching power.
    and
    on the heavy bag you can do certain drills
    like 30sec drill (you give it all you got with speed and power in 30 sec and then rest 30 and start again)
    your sparring partner would not like to be used as a "punching bag" in this drill and other exercises you do on the bag. (imagine switching turns and you get to be the bag)

    hope this helps

    this isn't a stupid Q, but he could use different words to ask the Q
    like: "what is the advantage of training on the heavy bag"
    this would give less negative A's

    When you shadow box your pushing against thing air, your not going for speed or power and because your focusing so much on getting the moves right its not really gonna train your stamina.

    When you hit a big your pushing against its weight with yours so your using muscles that aren't required for shaddow, the focus is on the work out and you'll be doing combos and punches at a speed and with power that you wouldn't when doing proper shaddow boxing.

    my coach has been working me on the heavy bag for 45 minutes every session. ther heavy bag makes your fighting "space", wortk for you. by using the heavy bag, you can learn how to keep moving because the bag is always moving. always burn out at the 30 second bell. jag and cross till the 30 second bell. than you will see the benefits of working the bag. do it as much as you can. trust me.

    also, always go back to the basics. read all you can about what worked for Ali, frazier, foreman, leonard, tyson. that all worked the bag. never stray from the basics. PLUS, no matter what anyone says, when someone watches you in the gym, and notices that you can hit the bag, the right way, you will turn heads. most people hit the bag the wrong way. use the california bag as well.

    One of the best ways of adapting the proper leverage, and movement is through working the heavybag. Unlike most sparring partners you can go all-out, practicing your power-punching without holding back.

    Unlike shadow boxing, focus-mitt sessions, heavybag conditions the tendon's in our wrists for impact. Through such conditioning the tendons in the wrists act like shock absorbers, compressing at the moment of impact. Other stressed elements such as the arms bones will become stronger and denser.
    If you hear a voice within you saying that I am not a painter, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.
