I’d like to start this by saying I know very little to nothing about boxing or organized fighting. So if I seem like I don’t know what I’m talking about thats why, I would appreciate not giving me shit if I ask a dumb quesiton which I intend to do. Anyways…
I’m entertaining the idea of using the heavy bag for intervals as my HIIT at the end of my workouts. I am limited in my options due to health issues, and the heavy bag and the rower are about it (I could prlly figure out a few more.) Anwyays here are my questions
Most importantly will this cause any issues down the line (fucked up wrists, etc) that will interfere with my training? LIke I said I’m doing this for interval training, not to get better at boxing so if it hurts my lifting it defeats the purpose.
This is the dumb one. How much is the bag supposed to move when you hit it? I mean I’ve seen videos of guys wailing on a bag and it barely moves, and I’m doing a 4 punch combo and the last hit is sending it a couple feet away. ANyways this fucks up the rythm I’m trying to get in for the purpose of HIIT. Could it just be a light bag? Or is there a way to avoid this?
I’m an idiot and just wrapped my hands/wrists with athletic tape today to try out the bag. I don’t have gloves and obviously will need them if I am going to use this. ANy advice on which ones to get or things to look for? Like I said I’m not trying to get into boxing or anything so cheap is good as long as it doesn’t tear up right away
