Working the Heavy Bag

We were talking this past week about working the heavy bag for skills and movement drills versus using it for conditioning.  Why not do both?  I went to one of my favorite sources for conditioning information and a guy who knows how to train boxers.  A few years back, I bought Ross Enamait’s book on strength and conditioning, Never Gymless: http://www.rosstraining.com/nevergymless.html

Awesome book.  As Ross says, in a fight, “conditioning is king.”  Talk about a guy who walks his talk, too!  The book offers up so many ideas on strength and conditioning for those that don’t have access to a gym, that you truly have no excuses not to be fit to fight.  He’s also done his homework.

Anyway, back to heavy bag work.  I found a good article of his called “Intensifying the Heavy Bag”, and it even has a great video clip.  This might give you some more ideas on how to work your heavy bag.  http://www.rossboxing.com/thegym/thegym24.htm
