    If you dont know how to use a speed bag correctly, you're going to have a hard time keeping the bag moving to get any cardio benifits from it.

    I use it myself, but not for cardio.

    How the fuck can you get your heart rate up from doing just speedbag?

    Maybe if you circuit train heavy bag, speedbag, double-ended bag, and jumprope, you'd get a great workout. Heavy Bag and jumprope will both get your heartrate up faster than speedbag.
