Is hitting a speedbag decent for cardio workout?
i find cardio to be better when the larger muscles groups are used... so if ur a frat boy, yes
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.
Fuck jump ropes! How do little kids do that so long?
Shadownboxing would be better.
NO SHIT!! My 8 year old daughter won some prize at her school for jumping for an hour.
After 3 minutes I say fuck it and go take a shower.
i prefer a heavy bag over a speed bag for cardio.
try cardio kickboxing
I don't get it either. I think it's so freaking boring.
Heavy bag > speed bag
