    Recently got a bag for my house and I can hit it and tire myself out, but I was wondering if there were any more structured ways to do it to get the most out of the workout.

    I've googled some but haven't really found anything specific and was wondering if anybody had some advice?

    Thanks in advance....:cool:

    Are you hitting it with good technique? I've found that with good technique you tire out so much faster that a program is almost unnecessary. (with the hop, torso twist, shoulder turn, etc.)

    If you really do need it, you can google tons of workout programs all over the web and play it with music, or get pre-made ones that should out random combination. there's a bas rutten mma workout with a boxing only section for download all over the web.

    Yeah, I use good technique and I do tire out quickly, not to mention ab muscles burning like a bitch.

    I'll check into those....thanks! :cool:

    I don't know what you have or whatever but usually for boxing I do 3 rds of jump rope warmup, 3 rounds shadowboxing, sparring, 3-6 rounds on the heavybag, 4 or 5 on the speedbag, maybe a couple more on the double end bag.

    Fucking awesome! :bigthumb:

    I only have a heavy bag at the moment, want to make sure I use it before I go and purchase a speedbag (I don't even know what a double end bag is :o ).

    I hadn't thought of a jump rope, gotta check if my ceiling is high enough where I have everything setup.

    :coold:

    Generally structured around rounds, at a boxing gym they'll have a bell that goes off every 3 minutes, and with a rest, and then you plan your training by mixing an activity into each round.

    Like heavy bag, speed bag, jump rope, shadow boxing. For however many number of rounds.

    The idea of rounds is that you want to go HARD for that time, it's kind of like the interval training idea in running, you don't want to just go at 60% for a long period of time, you want to go hard for 3 minutes then easy for a minute, then hard again. Some trainers do the same round times as a fight for training, some think going longer than a round is better. :dunno:

    You should definitely get a jump rope, sweet for explosiveness and being quick on your feet. Especially doing alternating one legged jumps.

    Very :cool:

    I'd never thought about doing it in "rounds", I was just going for as long as I could as I would gradually wear down and be more half-assed. This stuff definitely makes a ton more sense. :bigthumb:

    if you're actually looking to do anything with boxing you need to get a trainer and gym now or you're just going to ruin yourself with bad habits down the road.

    No, it is purely for exercise purposes. I'm old and fat, not planning on getting into a ring or anything.
