  • Is the speed bag worth buying?

    I know speed bags are mainly used in boxing but I am looking to improve my punching speed. I don't have time to go down to the gym more than once or twice a week because I'm in a year of exam revision and I need some way to speed up my punching. Should I buy one?

      If you get bit by the bug you'll be buying a lot more than one!

        I got bit and I'm on bag number 3! It has definitely increased my punching speed, but not only that my arms and shoulders have increased in size. Endurance is up as well after around a month or so of practice. Started out hitting 30 seconds, and I'm up to about 5 minutes now per session. I love it!

        The "title classic black" was best bang for the buck for sure. Loving my new kangaroo leather everlast for now though!

          Hi anniesmith, I will let others answer the speed. But for what it's worth from my prospective every speed bag should come with a warning label that state "WARNING THIS SPEED BAG MAY BECOME AN ADDICTION"

            Not all bags would deserve such a label.
