punchingbag/heavybag

i was wondering if there is any difference in regular punching bags and heavy bags i have a everlast punching bag prolly weighs about 40 or 50 pounds and ive been hitting it a while and it seems ive gotten faster but no added power at all even seems like i hit softer now.
i was wondering if i need a heavier bag then this to increase my punching power and overall workout.

Hi Casey,

In my experience ive found a direct link to the weight and hardness of the bag to the impact and power you get from training on it

with a softer bag you can hit it in lots of different ways and you wont be punished if you do it wrong,with a harder heavier bag you can only hit it one way and it has to be right,if its not you can feel it pulling on the part of your body that's not lined up so it forces good form more natural mechanics,the more natural the mechanics the harder you hit.
The best filling ive found is kiln dried sand but you may need to build it up slowly to get used to it. Depending on the quality of your bag you may be able to take a bit of stuffing out of the bag and add sand to the top to increase weight but its a idea to put it in a bag inside the bad or it will drop through to the bottom.and turn to stone(makes it more interesting though)



Here's a clip of my favourite example of serious power punching on a hard heavy bag,this example is from Dennis Jones and very street orientated but the basics of power punching are the same,he tends to pitch the punch rather than the traditional boxing a bit like fedor

hope this helps

There is a dramitic difference in effectiveness based on the weight of the bag.

I never felt quite as good as I did when I slammed my sparring partner's 50lb punching bag with a vertical punch after using my 140lb heavy bag for several years. The feeling as that bag whipped back with a fair sized dent in it...ah...that feeling will never go away.
