7 Heavy Bag Combinations To Build Power And Technique
How we program ourselves in training will be how we operate in fighting. A mind for quality training will turn into quality fighting.
This basic mindset goes deeper than just a mindset; it touches on the concept of movement patterns. Every single one of your movements reinforces that particular movement. For instance, if you bench press with bad technique, you are reinforcing your bad bench press technique. The body remembers what it does.
This is why it is so important to get down proper technique. Focus on quality before you move onto quantity, because if you don’t, your quantity will be the opposite of quality. A lot of bad doesn’t make bad good.
The heavy bag is a great tool for programming your body. It is one of the most versatile tools in our training repertoire, yet most people only see it as something to hit really hard over and over again, and though there is that, there is still so much more.
Think of the heavy bag as another opponent. You can move it around, experiment with different ranges, use tricky footwork, try different combinations at different ranges, etc. The possibilities are endless.
