If you want to work the heavy bag have a set ready to do before you start. I recommend this for all beginners.

Before you start you are going to need to know these strikes. Jab, hook, straight, leg kick, body kick.

These are bread and butter strikes. Once again go to YouTube, watch a boxer/kickboxer perform the punches and kicks.

Jab x 50/25
Jab - straight left x 50/25
Jab - straight left - leg kick x 50/25
Jab - straight left - right hook x 50/25

These are just some basic combos, go slow and focus more on technique than just throwing with all your might. It is easy to fall into bad habits without someone watching. But baby steps
Thanks! Is it ideal for a newbie to throw 4-punch combos? I've practiced the jab+cross+hook+uppercut a while ago. Second time in heavy bag and I feel disappointed that I didn't get to video-tape it...

Telling a weightlifter that deep squats are bad for the knees is like telling a kickboxer that footwork is a bad strategy...
