Default Re: Double end Bag vs Heavy bag

If you're looking to spar or compete..the double end bag is your best friend. If you train for fitness and want power go ahead and use the heavy bag. You have to throw nearly perfect punches on the double end bag for it swing back effectively it has to be technically sound with a snap or a grab motion. If not you'll wear yourself out trying to powerhouse a bag that asks to be hit professionally. When the hooks perfect the bag doesn't go left to right it shoots right back to you parry block duck whatever. Throw the hooks closer to t center of bag. If you neglect footwork you only get half the benifits of this bag..this bag should come before heavy bag work in my opinion
