As you walk into a boxing gym, exactly like the one I train at you can hear a familiar sound that rings through the gym “tat-tat-tat” this is the sound of fighters honing their skills using the ‘speed-bag’
Even if you’re a beginner you will soon realize that this is an important tool for all fighters.
The speed bag develops the following skills:
- Hand Eye Coordination
- Rhythm & Timing
- Shoulder Endurance
- Punching Power
