You improve your speed from then on by doing speed-strength training. Such as plyometrics, certain weightlifting movements, etc. Short, all-out intervals on the heavy bag (type sprints) works well.
Blah, blah, blah... Did you copy and paste that from another Yugo study.? So by sparring, bags, and all the other things every boxer does you will work speed? Thats true to a degree.. But to really target improving speed you have to do specific work.. Not sparring, bags, etc. Where do you box Ingar?
