    Actually, pretty good for a short time. Arm swing appears a bit "up and down" but will smooth out. left hand drops a bit when right is hitting. I would suggest keeping it up close to your chin.

    Bag may be a smidge too high but hard to tell with upward camera angle. Appear to be "snapping" that downward elbow strike a bit harder than other punching but will also smooth out with practice. Good Front Double Punching, Front Fist Rolling and pass through to Reverse. Might be reaching a bit on pass throughs, but not bad. Keep at it! (let the dog hit sometimes....)

      thanks for the feedback! means a lot coming from a skilled bagger. I do feel the platform is a bit high. The bottom of the bag is above eye level. The toughest part for me is keeping my hands up as my shoulders starts to hurt but I'm sure they will strengthen throughout the years. I'll continue posting videos of my progress. Thanks for watching!

        Yeah I want to lower the platform but I actually have since bought the balazs ibox and am waiting for my buddy to come put it up. I will be taking the everlast platform off soon. Thanks for the feedback Ralph, really appreciate it!

          Get a 4x4 piece of 3/4 in or 1in plywood, lay it on the floor and stand on it.. this will raise YOU up, which has the same effect as lowering the rebound board.

            Great job! It looks great.. but I agree you might want to lower the bag....
            And... maybe start using more left hand stuff.... right now it seems like it's following or complimenting the right... so some more left-dominated stuff will help you when adding in the more advanced punches....
            Yeah!!!
            BAG ON!!!

              Wizard: Thanks for the feedback! I am actually working through keeping my left hand up as well as fist rolls. Both are challenging but I'll get it. My shoulder starts to hurt after a while probably because the platform is too high. Once my buddy installs my new ibox the height will be a lot more fitting. I'm hoping to get on your level one day!

              Alan: Keep up the amazing work. It's awesome to see your videos throughout the yrs. Really inspiring!

                Thanks, I appreciate that. Haven't filmed anything lately, but I do have a vault as yet unseen.

                  If i were to give one bit of advice to any bagger that wants to get really good at striking the bag, and if they want to be able to become very smooth at super advanced Combos, it would be this... Always, and i mean always, wear a shirt when you shoot a Speed Bag Video. hehe

                  You're doing Awesome for 4 weeks. I can tell you're feeling where you need to be to make solid contact with the bag.
                  Great Job man. Keep on baggin'

                    Great Start!




                    Welcome to the speed bag forum, Roush! Well, there's nothing to add to the advice that has already been given. I concur with Alan and spinsmashpop regarding the lowering of the bag, as it will ease shoulder discomfort.

                    Try to focus on equal time for both fists when punching. Maybe work on drills of hitting one punch with your right for several minutes, then doing the same with the other hand. I'm guessing you are right-handed, so maybe work a little longer with the left until it comes naturally. (I still tend to favor my left...)

                    As for ebozyn's advice... Frankly, he's amazing how he can do what he does while wearing baggy sleeves and gloves. I wear a long sleeve compression-type shirt, and I usually don't wear wraps or gloves unless the winter weather starts drying and cracking my knuckles. I like to have direct contact with the bag.

                    You seem to have great timing and rhythm. (I checked out your YouTube channel and enjoyed watching your jump rope video. That takes some skill and timing.)

                    I look forward to watching your progress via the world wide web...

                    Practice, practice, practice.
