Hey, I never said I was moving very fast towards the end of the workout. My butt is kicked after 30 minutes of this. The last half of the workout is mostly heavy breathing!

My camera is not all that good, that is why I have never posted videos. I suppose it is time to look for one though.

I'll see what I can do, but really, heavy bag punching isn't all that spectacular to watch.

Besides, right now my heavy bag is in my basement and the lighting isn't that great. Taking pictures is one thing because of the flash, but I'm afraid the video will be too dark.

I'll try to remember to do that this afternoon though. I've got a lot going on right now and it's hard enough just to get in my workouts.

Besides, if I wasn't so busy, I'd be in Florida this weekend with Tim and Alan!

EDIT: On second thought, I'll post a video this afternoon. Today is my heavy bag workout day anyway. Just don't expect much, it's not exciting, kind of like watching someone do bench presses in my opinion.

Okay, here you go. Be nice. I started off cold without warming up and I didn't really concentrate on form or footwork so....

Also, sorry for the sound. I had to downsize it because the original file was 218 MB.

Feedback please!

Ha!

The bag is a 100 pounder. Sometimes I wish I had bought a heavier one.

The haircut is Army issue even though I've been out for almost 8 years now. I grew accustomed to it and I still prefer the low maintenance of that hair cut. Old habits die hard after 15 years.

Know what you mean about having a heavier bag. I think a 125 pounder would be perfect. My company has a couple 100 pounders, and a couple of the full length Twins Muay Thai Bags I'd say are about 200 pounds. IMO good for kicking only if you're into that.

Hey guys!
Nice video Chris! you got some good combos going

I have a 100 pound or so bag and I think itīs great, I hear a lot of people talking about the very heavy bags, why would you need a heavier bag for? this one you can punch and kick using the swing of the bag. And if you donīt want it to swing you can always attach it with a rope to the floor. I think my bag is already hard enough and heavy on the wrists

The nice thing about this bag is that it's not hard at all. It just hasn't settled causing the bottom of the bag to be rock hard like some of the bags at my gym and the cheapie 40 pound bag that I bought at a garage sale. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's not going to happen to this Ringside bag.

Why a bigger bag? I would prefer that it not move so much. I do have one of those canvas bags filled with gravel that I currently use to anchor my double end bag, but I just haven't tried it on the heavy bag. My frustration is that I wish it didn't swing so much. Yes, yes, I know I should be using that movement to bob, weave, slip, etc., but I don't. Maybe I need to work on that more. Part of my problem as you may or may not be able to tell from the video is that my basment workout area is extremely small and I don't have a lot of manuevering room. I have some really nice maple trees in my back yard that would be ideal and I love working out outdoors, but I don't want to leave my bag outside all the time, seeing as how it's leather and it cost me a quite a bit. I'm too lazy to lug a 100 pound bag back and forth across my yard and setup a step ladder to put it up and take it down. I've thought about getting some plastic to make some type of thing to protect it from sun and rain when I'm not using it but it hasn't been a big priority for me.

Also, regarding soft bags, I don't really care for them. They have a couple of water bags at my gym and they're just way too soft for my liking, they give about 3 or 4 inches when you punch them and for some reason, those things always end up spinning like crazy too.

I have no problem with spinning water bags... if they are spinning then you may be hitting incorrectly or the bag has a bad shape and should be easily fixed.

I am picturing a gazeebo in the backyard with work out equipment in it.... heavy bag, weights, speedbag
