The best punch bag workout without a doubt is to hit the bag for five 2 minute rounds with a one minute break after each round. Either increase the number of rounds or increase a round’s duration. This will gradually increase your endurance level and eventually leading you towards a higher breakdown threshold level. To put it in simple words, you won’t easily give up or be defeated. Use the blue Mexican style sparring or boxing gloves by TurnerMAX with hand wraps to keep your hands safe.

What’s a Jab?
Jab is the first punch you learn as a beginner. The more you practice on the free standing heavy bag at home, the more you’ll be able to refine them. It will become part of your subconscious to hit the bag and you will enjoy doing that! Boxing for ladies is supposedly a big anti-stressor. Do keep a bag at home if you don’t have the time for gym. I would suggest not hitting with maximum power, initially. As soon as you jab the bag, hold your hands up in guard position before you perform the next jab. Keep moving around the bag to initiate and improve foot movement, striking the bag from different angles.
The next punch is the cross. This training will occur in a one-two blend. Usually the jab comes from the left hand with less power giving way to the right cross that hits the bag with full power. Move your hip along with executing the cross. This should be done while standing in attacking mode as if you are facing a real opponent. Repeat this 10 times before moving onto the next step.
This is just an additional jab and cross once you are comfortable with the previous jab and cross. It can take weeks to perfect the jab-cross blend. This one-two technique is the basic form of punching. Make sure not to lose your balance after completing the jab-cross combination. Add another jab-cross to increase the workout intensity by 4. Repeat this 10 times and you will feel a big change in your fitness and fighting regimen.
