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.
