Default accuracy

Does hitting the double end bag without gloves improve accuracy? Or does it make no difference because you will be using gloves during the fight? thanks for reading

While the double end bag does help with punching accuracy, I guess, I'm not sure how much. I used to be able to hit it for a round while carrying on a conversation and never looking at it. Using a peanut bag, real small, was challenging at first...and I was far from a prodigy.
To develope accuracy, it is something you work at all the time, in every aspect of your training. You put marks on your heavy bag, and that is where you land your punches; when you are practicing slipping a jab and, for example, landing a straight right to the heart and a left hook to the liver, you hit those marks, not just 'the bag.' When your trainer is working your on the mitts, he should be giving you realistic targets to hit.

I'm not sure that accuracy per se needs to be developed specifically.

Almost everyone can easily hit a small stationary target without practice.

I think the ability to hit a moving target is more timing / anticipation rather than accuracy.

Most important thing for accuracy, is to get the Muscles that are used in the Chain, to perform correct, Stretch them .

Look past it, when your fighting you dont just stare at his right glove or his head you look at everything

yah, I was trying to find other ways to use it because I can pretty much hit it with any combo easily so I wanted to try something new with it, might try to tie it left and right instead of up and down just to check it out.
