Why speed bag training?

One of the best things about the speed bag is that it is extremely cheap to set up. All you really need are the bag and the mounting platform to get started. The exercise, as you will notice, helps increase the speed of your hands and also the mind’s reaction time.

Faster punches

In the beginning, the pace of your hands may be slow, but gradually, they will start moving much faster.

Punching strength increases

With speed comes more strength in the hands. The punching power improves due to this, so it is not only about speed.

Builds coordination

Since the speed bag is really small, it is really fast and helps improve coordination.

Tones physique

Who doesn’t love a good physique? Speed bag training helps build a good physique and in turn helps build power.

Train from home

The speed bag training equipment is easily available in the market, and you can buy it at reasonable prices.

Alleviates stress

A good training alleviates stress as it helps release dopamine, a chemical in the brain which makes one feel happy. It is a major reason why you should train.

Improved reaction time

Reflexes and reactions play quite a role in sport, and speed bag training helps improve this.
