    I don't utilize my 60 pound bag and boxing gloves enough in my workout routines...Can anyone direct me to some good boxing sites on the net or books related to the subject? Thanks....Steve

    I too would like to know if there's a good online resource for bag-work or an effective work out routine. There happens to be a heavy bag (a little too hard and heavy, no pun intended) in our gym and it'd be great to know how to use it...other than punch it until you get tired, then repeat. (:

    First of all, by punching a Pbag you will work mainly in your cardio and stamina skills, not much over-all strenght gain involved but if you get it to a good level you can also make some tight muscle in arms & shoulders but over all coordination.

    I would recommend you to train in intervals of 3 minutes by 1 minute of rest, like in fighting rounds, here's a brief example of a routine, as you get confortable punching you can make your own 3 minute round routines, adding foot work, evasion movements.

    10-15 minutes warm-up Jumping rope
    1 minute rest (Put on gloves)
    3 minutes Jabs
    1 minute rest
    3 minutes Jab + Crosses
    1 minute rest
    3 minutes Left and Right Hooks
    1 minute rest
    3 m Left and Right Uppercuts
    1 minute rest
    3 m Varied combinations (Repeat if desired)
    15 minutes cool down (Stretching all body)
    Note: All kind of punches can be body or head shots. Include them as you practice

    Additionally, here are some videos that can get you started, good luck!

    or if you want to add kicks/mma, track down the Bas Rutten workouts and he calls out the combos for you during rounds

    I was just looking at these on Amazon. There's also some downloadables by Michael Andreula.
