    Im just wondering what benefits you'll gain from a speed bag,

    I've had one laying around in the basement for a while and I put it up yesterday. So I wonder if any of u know what a speed bag is good for, and diffrent drills.

    thx.

    i believe benefit is that you learn to relax your shoulders. Also, helps work on timing

    I've always said it should have been called a timing bag works timing more than speed IMO

    Teaches you to keep your arms up imo. Hitting it for any extended period gives you sore shoulders.

    Some girls like the speedbag, some don't, you just gotta figure it out for yourself.
