Congratulations on getting a speed bag for the home! I have two up myself. One in the Garage and one in a spare bedroom. You will find it to be a great addition to your home based workouts.Now to answer your questions. when you say “WE”. (jus mulberry purse t bought a speed bag) I am assuming that more than one person will be us mulberry purse ing it. Then a key factor to the initial set up is making sure their is enough room to adjust the board up or down slighlty to set the bag at the proper height of the user. Of course, I am assuming that your speed bag board IS an adjustable type, so it can easily be raised up or down. If NOT, then you may want to get an exercise stepping box or something stable so the shortest user in your family can get the bag in the proper position. I have addressed that in a beginners article posted at the bottom for you. Also, I recommend using bolts to attach the swivel. Depending on your board type, the small screws can eventually work loose and the swivel will become loose as a result. I normally drill my swivel holes all the way through and bolt the mulberry purse m on so that problem never occurs. I mulberry purse t may not be needed in a small usage area, but if you have a lot of folks in your family who will be using it, and using large bags, I would recommend taking the extra time to bolt it on. If your frame braces or over the board hardware would interfere with a bolt coming up through the board, then you can always put in smooth headed bolt in from the top and have the threads come out the bottom. It won’t hurt to do it that way.I recommend getting a medium to large bag, and for beginners I normally recommend an 11×8 size. they are big enough to control and yet can go pretty fast. Here is a link to a good site for that.

Speed bag questions

QUESTION: Hi Alan Kahn,

I’ve been using the speedbag for training, for quite some time now. However, I feel as if I am desiring more then what I am getting out of my bag. I’ve tried a couple different brands, and sizes. My favorite ba mulberry purse g seems to be a 11×9 Everlast bag. I’ve had a lot of fun w/ this bag but I need something faster. I own a 5×8 Tuff Wear bag, but the bag seems too thick and I believe that because of that, alot of the rebound is taken away. Today my order from title boxing finally came in, and within this order was my new Rival 5×8 speedbag. again it seems like this bag is just like the Tuff Wear one that i already own.

I’ve heard many times and I believe I heard it on your speedbag bible dvd as well, that the smaller the bag, the faster it will be. which requires more skill to use.

My question is. What specific brand of speed bag would you recommend me to purchase in order for me to have a bag that moved alot quicker? And what size. In my mind, im hoping for a small bag that hits like my 11×9 red one, but is able to be hit alot faster.

Also, I was wanting to ask you. have you purchased any speedbags where the “mouth” part of the bag wa mulberry purse s too wide for the swivel? I had tha mulberry purse t with my Tuff Wear bag, and I had to take a pair of scissors and trim it down, just so it would fit the swivel.

The Red Everlast bag 11×8 that you have is probably a model 4210, which is a very nice learning bag, but is not very fast. The old Tufwear bags are thick and a bit heavy per size but many people like that, for you can apply a good smack to hit with it running away from you. I have hit the Rival 5×8 and like it. I did not find it overly heavy but everyone’s hands are different. The promex bags seem heavy to me. I love the shaped, but heavy.

You are right, that normally the smaller the bag the faster it will be, and the fast the bag is the more skill it takes to control it. Actually, you don’t control the BAG, per se, you control YOUR movements to continuously punch the bag. Always strive for relaxed control of YOUR movements, and bag will follow along obediently.

As far as a bag goes, the 8×5 is the most recent “fast” bag I have found to really enjoy. smaller bags seem just a bit too light to have fun with.

You might try the Ringside extra small XS 8×5:or the “SMALL” Top contender 8x5or the yellow Title 8×5 ( i use this a lot)or the Title Classic 8×5 ( light bag )All of the bags above are excellent bags, and I would recommend anyone of them.

Concerning your comment about the bag “mouth” or the “width of the bag strap” that attaches to the swivel. I have noticed a problem with the width and thickness being greater than the swivel. Some bags DO have such a thick or wide strap you just can’t get it on the hook. I too have squeezed them with pliers, etc. trying to get them to fit on the hook. It is one of the little inconsistencies and equipment issues with the speed bag. I have actually known people to cut the swivel end off a bit to make more room, and then put a bit of tape around it to better hold the bag on.

I hope this answers your question. Good luck with your search and train safely.

I had read some previous posts you made in response to other people’s questions and I saw what you wrote ab mulberry purse out a bag w/ a wider belly, being quicker. So now I have been looking at different bags according to that. I also checked out the different bags that you linked. and I was curious about the , I just returned the 5×8 rival bag I ordered, and I am exchanging it for the 6×9 red bag in that link. Do you think it will be light like my 11×9 bag? But of course be alot quicker. I am also thinking of purchasing that 5×8 title bag you linked me. I intend on trying both of them out and keeping the one that I like of the two. It’s really hard to know what is good unless I ask someone who has already used a specific piece of equipment. I am hoping you can suggest some stuff for me. Speed Bag Training really is a unique activity that can last a lifetime.

I do believe a wider belly per each bag size is a bit faster. All that really means is the bag ANY size bag will have a more rounded tear drop shape, making it a bit fatter and shorter. It will have a shorter rebound arc, and hit the board quicker in each rebound. The gain in speed is probably slight, but noticeable. Particular when punching full out, as fast as you can. But that also demands a bit more control. It is very hard to maintain full speed punching without very clean swinging technique.

The red bag you mention on the titleboxing website is a 9×6, and I use it quite a bit also. It will be smaller and faster than the Everlast 4210, which is an 11×8. The weight will be close, but I wouldn’t worry too much about that. You should adapt pretty quickly to the feel of any bag on your hands, and it’s swinging/rebound patterns, in a few workouts. You will notice the Yellow 8×5 is also smaller,lighter and faster than the red 9×6. Again, I have and use them both.

The “Jumbo Ball”, you speak of is an interesting specialty bag that is one of several now available. They are several types of these, such as linked below:.

Speed bag question

First off I do not box or train to box. I’ve just always been fascinated by the speed bag. I was thinking of purchasing a swivel and a bag and read in one of your responses that you could build your own rebound board. Here is my first part of question.Could you potentially put the rebound board “directly on the ceiling” provided that it is low mulberry purse enough? Instead of building the metal frame, have the rebound board rest directly on the ceiling on the studs. Would this cause any problems in the functionality of the speed bag? What is your opinion?Second part of my question is. What are the health benifits of using the speed bad? As i mentionned, I’m not a boxer or training to be one I just want to throw that in the mix. What benifits could I see? (arms, chest, coordination?)And do you have any suggestions for beginners?Yes, you could put the board up on overhead studs or flooring from the above floor. I have seen that several times in peoples basements or low level garages. The only problem is it is completely unadjustable. shorter people may have to have a platform to stand on or the bag will be too high. These actions often require quick and accurate reactions with split second timing. The speed bag will fine tune your reaction time, which translates to all sports. It will also help you learn to keep your hands up in the “ready” position. Affected sports include the “big 4″ of basketball, football (American) mulberry purse , baseball and volleyball, as well as: Handball, Softball, Lacrosse, and all racket sports (tennis, racquetball, ping pong). Simply put, If you “get in the game” speed bag training can help you play better.Eye Hand Foot coordination Targeting the bag for single or repetitive contact, and to do this continuously at the right time.Rhythm and Timing Maintain constant and continuous flowing movements with equal force and speed.Hand speed and power. Required to keep the bag going at a constant rate of speed. Also requires using equal power (or force), with no wasted motion.Fitness Benefits Striking actions require the user to hold the arms and hands up for extended periods of time, building shoulder arm strength and endurance. This in turn helps to shape, tone and define the muscles involved. Punching repetitively for a length of time, such as 3 minutes can have cardiovascular benefits, taxing the heart and lungs, and often leave you winded. With practice, you can extend this to 15 minutes or longer, helping to increase aerobic capacity.Rhythmic Expression. Like a mulberry purse “hanging drum” It allows the user a vast amount of creative capability. With a little practice, you can develop all kinds of different rhythms, allowing for a great deal of self expression.Low injury potential. Speed Bag training has very low potential for serious injury.Home economy. Speed bag equipment can be inexpensive and adapts easily to the home environment. It can also be mix mulberry purse ed with other home fitness activities.
