What is Speed Bag Training ??

Essentially Speed Bag Training is simply a  range of workouts/exercise programs based around a Speed Bag.  The training process involves learning, developing and improving a variety of punch types and combinations (usually over an extended period of time).

Not as Easy as it looks …

Most people find it quite challenging the first time they try  out a Speed Bag. They usually struggle with the timing and precision needed to create the unique rhythmic pattern they have seen and heard… In fact, it may take some time, but with patience and perseverance, pretty much anyone is capable of becoming good at the Speed Bag.

Because learning the Speed bag is actually more of a cognitive than a physical challenge, Speed Bag Training is usually most effective if it is undertaken as a number of short duration sessions rather than a single long training session… i.e. 10 x 3 minute sessions over a week is likely to be much more productive than a single 30 minute session.
