    jab and cross, lots of roundhouses, maybe some front kicks or side kicks to start with. start slow and build structure, and figure out good angles so you don't end up breaking your wrist by punching it too hard.

    There's a thread or two about bagwork somewhere. Might be worth a search?

    One of the most important things;

    Make sure the bag is secured and supported

    go to class and ask your coach for advice before you start anything at home on your own, last thing you want to do is injure yourself

    I do the Koryu Uchinadi Haishi waza drill as my bag work (Jab, cross, hook, 4 uppers)

    for power i like to do like light jab, light jab power cross, hook, hook upper
    but with your power punches throw them in flow never just throw raw uncontrolled power at the bag like fish of doom said you will break your wrist or worse get a boxers fracture with the kicks roundhouses are good and with those get the technique right first power and speed will come

    Serious question. How do you do the uppercuts on the bag? Wouldn't they just slide up as the angle is wrong on a straight bag.

    Rips yes, proper uppercuts maybe not?

    Indeed. Head uppers I skim up the surface of the bag rather than hit it.
    Body uppers obviously go out a little and dig in.
    Righty...how do you define a rip compared to an uppercut. Only other person I've heard use rip was a boxing coach from NZ I trained with at a seminar.

    Some people use the word uppercut to describe both my definition of uppercut and rip (and I don't think it's incorrect).

    An uppercut to me is where the fist it moving from below to a high position. A classic uppercut to the chin is a good example.

    In a rip the fist stays more in a horizontal motion and it almost always a body shot and I've heard it called a body rip. But here your elbow and fist stay more around waist/hip height without your shoulder moving too much when you let it fly, so the power really comes from body movement. Because of this you can hammer them into the bag in a way you can't with uppercuts.

    I'm no boxer but this is just my understanding.

    I've had a search around previously for a more comprehensive heavy bag workout thread but couldn't find any. Can anyone assist? I'm particulary interested in combos to try. I don't know a huge amount and tend to end up getting bored from doing the same thing.

    shoulda been more specific but yes body uppers or rips as you all call them

    You'd save time if you posted a vid of you hitting the bag so people could give advice.

    Try roundkicks , jab, and crosses. Try not to be sporadic (for now). Go fairly slow and work on proper technique with power. Later work up speed.

    I have used a frestanding before, just not the everlast one. I have no problem with the century one, but I found an everlast one for less expensive. I have a small garage, no room to hang a bag, but if I move a car out I can get a good bag work out in.
