    is it better to go 3-4 minute rounds then take a break for about a 1min between each round?

    or to just hit the bag the whole time but change the intensity every minute or so?:hs:

    Heavy bag sounds good. You could do either...whatever you enjoy more. I don't think HIIT is so much about rhythm but more about keeping activity and heartrate levels at a high. Total duration of exercise is probably your bigger concern.

    Also, you could walk around on your one minute break to keep you active.

    What about 15 secs high intensity punching, followed by 45 secs moving around bag .. jabbing and throwing the occasional combo? I'd just say to keep up your heart rate up during "rest periods" by dancing/moving around like you should during boxing.

    I do 1-2 minutes heavy punching, then 30sec-1min easy moving jabs and shit. It just kinda works out that way because I get tired. lol

    you can also shadowbox with weighted gloves. i usually do four 3min rounds with a minute of rest also.

    1 - jab
    1,2 jab, cross
    1,2,3
    1,2,3,4
    all the way up to 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
    then back down to 1

    honestly combos wear me down way faster than kicks, but I never really practiced kicking repititions like I see a lot of MT guys do in videos...


    maybe do boxing for the high intensity and inbetween work kicks with both legs. :dunno:


    also, switch from southpaw to orthdox and back each interval, building up imbalances in your body through heavy bag can lead to imbalances in other things... I noticed my right hip flexor was way tighter than my left (more right-leg kicking from orthodox) and my power punches were way weaker in southpaw. The tight hip flexor actually messed with my posture for a bit I think, so definitely keep things even on both sides. It's a good trait to carry anyway.

    not the best idea for elbows and shoulders.... your hands are enough or some regular old 14-18oz'ers. using weights (even light ones) for punching is really not the best idea.

    In boxing we just do 3:00 rounds with 1 minute rest in between. I started off throwing maybe 60 punches in a round. Now I do 120-180 punches per round with multi punch combos which take a lot out of you. Its better to build it up slowly especially if you've never hit a bag before. Let your joints and wrists get used to it and let your cardio build up at a comfortable pace. It feels much better than forcing yourself through a round that you're body's not yet prepared for.

    3=jab, cross, left hook for me :dunno:

    the way i was taught,


    1= jab
    2= straight (aka cross)
    3= front hook
    4= rear hook
    5= front uppercut
    6= rear uppercut


    that's why when they say "give 'em the old 1-2" it means jab then straight, etc. Each punch has a number, rather than each number being a combo. 12 year old boxing classes ftw? :o

    you will figure out all the combos if you take classes, because they will teach you.


    If not, at least learn how to do all of the basic punches. From there, you can assess what would make a good combo.


    A jab is the perfect setup for the straight because it leaves your body in a "fully cocked" position for the straight once the jab has been executed.


    Similarly, the straight punch sets you up perfectly for a front hook because your body should be directly facing your opponent at the execution of the straight, which is exactly where you charge up your front hook.

    Just think of moving as fluidly as possible, don't waste movement of the hips, if you rotate out of your stance with a punch, rotate back into it with another one.
