The question i get asked quite often is "what boxing gear do i like and what boxing gear do i use?"
And while this is just fine to be interested in my boxing gear and heavy bag. I do notice that My students find themselves so interested in the gear that is out there, often times its more so than the training that they do with me! lol.
My first tip is to not let the gear you box in and the heavy bag gloves you wear let it be the thing that interest you most.
So what heavy bag boxing gloves do i mostly use?
I typically when i am just training on the heavy bag i will typically use the Title Gel World Bag Gloves. These heavy bag gloves are specifically designed to be used with the heavy bag when you are training. These are not for sparring or fighting though do keep that in mind.
What Heavy Bag Do I train on?
The heavy bag that i tend to train on at home mostly is the century wavemaster xxl free standing bag or i will train on the Outslyer Muay Thai Heavy Bag if i feel i want to throw a bit more power and have a longer training session.
What boxing Shoes Do I Wear?
This doesn't even matter! Get the boxing shoes that you like most!
Boxing gear can be creatively used to improve all your boxing drills and punching skills, including:
Eye coordination - Rhythm and time
It should provide a combination of more powerful and faster repetitive drilling while moving the fist a shorter distance than the "normal" drill.
In the beginning of your boxing career, you will most likely have the newbie just get it attitude. which is great! But be sure that you know what type of training the you are going to be doing so that you can know how to choose the best punching bag for your workouts and goals.
First of all, it is the height of the bag. The abdomen (the thickest part) of the bag should be close to your mouth or nose. Many people think it is too high, resulting in poor shape and drilling techniques and inefficiencies.
Then, change the name of the "speed" bag from the "Control" bag. We say this because when your speed and power are improved so is your control. Your punches will become more accurate and you will be able to hit with more control as you punch the speed bag more often and practice. When you have the shortest arm and the shortest shot (low speed), the speed will be applied automatically. Even if you need to calculate the bounce as soon as possible, the main goal is to keep the baggage running even if it is slow. (Your success rate will exceed your number). Control is the key. In fact, SAC will never get out of control, you are. Once you can control the short trip and perform the necessary actions in the circle, the baggage will be directly in your fist (elbow) and your fist will tell you. One trick is to use your fist to make a very small circular motion, no matter what "hit" you use. Suppose your repeated burning action is a 12-inch circle. Maintain strength or strength in the same way, if you can shorten this action by 12 to 6 inches, your fist will reach half of the on-site target time. Viola! Reduce the speed of movement faster. In order to speed up, the swing is smaller. Speed is usually a function of distance. Add powder power through a solid practice (ie no punching bag).
The speed bag or "control" bag is easy to understand. If you are just playing forward, because you are doing more boxing, the next step should be after the rebound of Odro (1, 3, 5 or 7). Most people know that the affected speed is hypnotized by the "high rhythm". The basis of this great "rhythm" is the focus of the sound. The first bounce (closed fist) is the strongest, the second bounce (your face) is slightly softer, the third time (the audience bothers you, you pour backwards, and quickly increase the fist to the sudden increase of the connection in the future 1 - 2-3, 1-2-3 ...... This is the sound we all like, it is the same sound that gets slower or faster, try to feel the rhythm, but if 3 rebounds are "too fast" For you (or you refuse to slow down or get in touch...) instead of using 5 rebounds, the bag will be in the same position, 5 rebounds and 3 rebounds, hitting again in front.
Click, direct hits and most combinations of crosses can use five rebounds and three rebounds. The hooks are a bit different. When practicing a combination of repeated hooks (left hook, right hook), use odd jumps (two or four). The fourth is a better start. It works because "the next step comes from the reverse of the last shot" and the legal requirements for the rhythmic speed bag....
In order to mix the hooks with other strokes, the amount of rebound required can vary depending on the bounce angle of the bag and the angle of the cuff when attached. For example, a "left hook" can follow a "straight line" after 3 or 4 rebounds, depending on the angle of the pocket determined by the right fist and the angle into its left hook. Practice slowly and observe the change in the angle of the bag! In addition, after the left hook, the left fist can return to the left fist in 3 or 4 rebounds, depending on the bounce angle. In any case, the accessory kit requires you to raise your hand to combine them. In addition, the position of "lifting hands" was observed in most other sports.
To adjust, the speed bag "pumps" your shoulders and arms. Soon, you will experience repeated muscle burns from the deltoid tendon. In addition, if you can do enough, you can also get cardiovascular benefits, increase your heart rate and breathing more difficult. (The power supply must be drilled for a few minutes to get it, but over time, you can drill). For full body movement, add a speed pocket and a retaining ring. Talk about coordination! Play and walk at the same time!
With a little patience and practice, you'll soon discover that the speed bag lets you get rid of one foot or less of moving targets quickly. But beware... if you play another sport that requires fast and efficient (softball or volleyball, anyone?) will also help in these areas.
Regularly become a beginner train and become a professional day.
Proper speed bag technique
Speed bag is an indispensable tool you are looking to be the next heavyweight boxing champion or just looking for a fun way to adjust your arm. The Speed bag is a creative way to speed up response, improve eye coordination, strength, arm tone and excellent cardiovascular training. Getting used to speed bag can take a while, but with practice and patience, you will be impressed by your incredible speed!
With it, let's take a look at the correct tricks for speed bag.
Attach the bag at proper height
First, you want to put your horizontal abdomen (the largest part) on your abdomen with your mouth. Many people hang bags too high, causing unnecessary muscle strain and poor technology.
Rather than using the traditional boxing position, the feet stay the same distance as the speed bag. You should be a little closer than the length of the bag. Also, you should be close enough to the bag so you don't need to stretch your arms more than a few centimeter’s. However, you must be far enough away from the bag to avoid hitting your head when you bounce.
Know the rhythm
The first step to correctly hit the speed bag to get the pace. Each shot speed bag will be restored three times. Then, when you hit him once, he will hit it from front to back and then again. Try doing this to lower your speed: * hit *, wait for 3 rebounds, * hit * and wait for 3 rebounds. Repeat this operation for a full turn.
Hands together- open and free
When people start using speed bag, it is recommended not to shake the fist or hit the bag with the knuckles. This leads to loss of control and the impact on the bag is too strong or too fast. Keeping your hands open and hitting with your fingers will slow you down until you reach your speed.
Hands closer to the bag
If your hand is too far away from the bag, you may move too fast and hit the bag too much. Therefore, it is important to keep your hands close to the bag. When your hand is close to the bag, you can touch it without facing it. Remember that when one hand hits the ball, the other hand should wait under the bag.
How to hit the speed bag faster?
To increase your drilling speed, you can strengthen your muscles with deep and underwater shots. Doing basic exercises, such as squatting, will also increase your speed. Always stretch your arms after each workout because the tense muscles cannot move as fast as the free muscles. When you are ready to hit, be sure to exhale and relax your shoulders to prepare. Then, quickly breathe by clicking to breathe quickly. To learn how to use thick gloves and resistance to increase drilling speed, read on!
Strengthen your lower body by jumping, cycling or squatting.
Use a skipping rope to use or jump. Try cycling or cycling. Add weight to your squat to increase the challenge. The lower part of your body is basically the basis of power, so it can develop and strengthen the limbs and hamstrings.
Drill water or sandbags to increase strength.
In the pool, put water into the target and hit the front. Water increases resistance, similar to how resistance bands work. Repeatedly hit, stabilizing and softly piercing the punching action. This technique will help build "muscle memory" for muscle movement while strengthening muscles.
Improve your rotation by performing basic exercises such as squats and push-ups.
Strengthen the upper part of your body with basic exercises to better provide your shots and increase your speed. You can also try to move your muscles by swinging a baseball bat or a golf club, just like you are shooting.
Different ways to hit a speed bag properly
Knowing how to box is a rare skill. Proper use of sandbags can produce strength, endurance, strength and technology. It is a waste of time to hurt it at most. In the worst case, you can adjust your joints, twist your wrists and even break your hands.
· Wear gloves. Wear ordinary boxing gloves, thin gloves or even heavy gloves.
· Stand close to the bag so you can turn your hips behind your hips, but you can't reach it without turning your hips.
· Use your big toe to dig your puncture arm on the same side of the body and start shooting. Let the power of your fingers rise from your legs and then turn your hips and shoulders.
· Drive with your torso instead of stretching your fists.
· Hit the bag with the big finger joint of the middle finger and middle finger. Knocking with a smaller joint can cause a painful rest.
· Point to the other hand when removing the first shot.
· Perform a loop of four to eight solid strokes. Rest and assess the feelings of the fight. If you break when you box, not just swing, you behave very well. If your elbow, wrist or shoulder is injured, you are wrong. Adjust the shooting angle until you feel good.
