    I hope you get to love your new swivel!
    Thank you, Mrs. Mitts. Hitting on a bigger bag seems to help me with stamina. And... YES, the new swivel is growing on me, that's for sure!

    Just between you and me SBS – – I haven't tossed the U bolt – yet!... I put it on another platform. And all-wood, free-standing setup that "trainer" Raul built a few weeks ago... (Gee, it's handy having a carpenter in the house!)

    And to prove that I'm still attached to my U bolt swivel, here's a sample of a practice session from last week:

    (I hope You Tube didn't delete the audio again– It's Aretha this time!)

    Thanks, Alan. I've managed to inspire a few girl friends, so far, so that's pretty cool... although, sometimes I think I should post a disclaimer or something in my videos though..."For entertainment purposes only" ... as I tend to "freestyle," for lack of a better description, of my punching, stance, etc.

    No, but I know "the Hairdresser of Super Cuts!"

    Why, thank you kindly, deano. Have you noticed in my recent videos, that I have started posing at a 3/4 angle to the camera...
    ...if I turn sideways to the camera, you can hardly see me!

    Ecellent work MsD, the ball hook is a tad slower which allows you to make smoother transitions(much harder to over speed and miss hit). i do see a hint of timing difference between your strikes on the BH vs the UB. that's not a bad thing it's just an observation. it happens when making equipment changes.

    great job on the weight loss as well, it's apparent in the vids.
    Yes, I like the fact that I can slow down the tempo so much easier using the ball hook.

    The first few days on the swivel, I got very frustrated and felt that I was starting at the beginning. The U bar is more forgiving, and with the swivel, there seems to be very little room for error. But, within several days, I managed to get the hang of it. I pulled out the big Everlast (my fall back bag ) and simply worked on my stamina and learned to adjust my punching power. I'm getting more and more comfortable with each workout...

    Thanks, fingers. I know that a lot of my punches are, well... not exactly "spot on"... but, I'm workin' on it! I haven't given up the U bar completely. My better half – "Coach Raul" – is also known as my Ace Platform Designer – and built an all-wood speed bag setup and we put the old U bar swivel on it. (I'll be posting some pictures soon.)

    Why, thank you TJ... I just watched your video again, and am still amazed by it...

    Well done Dee! Your elbow work is excellent, along with all the other stuff too. Good to hear you've gone with the ball hook, excellent choice.
    Yes, I decided it was time to try something different... I was starting to feel like I wasn't progressing... The swivel is fast... I think it might be too fast for my level of punching. And, I like punching to rhythmic beats and I have found that the ball hook gives me what I've been looking for in that respect...

    Another great video from MsD! You really got the elbows working there! Were you starting to sing towards the end? Nice!
    ...well, I wouldn't call it singing......more like fingernails on a chalkboard... ... guess I got a little caught up in the song.

    Thanks. Those sets of elbow punches are my ticket to the next (smaller) dress size!
