The Wavemaster Freestanding Training Bag is different from traditional punching bags. Traditional punching bags install onto the ceiling using a chain and a hook, or they hang from a stand. The freestanding training bag from Wavemaster has a sturdy, circular base, and does not sway or bounce around unlike classic training bags. After each hard punch, it returns to its position in the middle, so there is no risk of getting hit back by the training bag. Whether you’re a novice or a professional, you will be sure to benefit from the use of this training bag. Below are some tips for using and training with the Wavemaster Freestanding Training Bag.
1. If you don’t have a home gym, place the training bag somewhere in your home where there will be sufficient space for when you punch and when the training bag rebounds. These bags do not make a lot of noise, so they are perfect even for condos or apartments, or if you are living with a roommate.
2. Make sure you adjust the height of the training bag so that your punches are comfortable and not awkward. The training bag can be adjusted between 52 and 72 inches in height.
3. Use either water or sand to fill up the training bag. Once you’ve filled it up, the weight of the training bag itself should be 70 lbs.
4. Consider variations of the Wavemaster Freestanding Training Bag that feature striking zones that are numbered. These allow for more accurate punches.
5. Before anything, make sure that your form is upright. The Wavemaster Freestanding Training Bag and shadowboxing can both help you with the technical aspect of your training. Your purpose in doing this is to develop your form and the precision of your body movements, so you accomplish these correctly, since your objective is to maximize your training and ensure that you steer clear of injuries.
6. As you work on your strength, bear in mind that your objective this time is to develop your body’s capabilities in punching, as well as getting them. At the same time, you are working on your agility. It is not ideal for boxers to do a lot of weightlifting but rather, doing exercises that rely on their bodyweight, like doing pushups, pull-ups, and making use of training balls and light weights eventually. You can also work on developing the large muscle groups of your body by using equipment like the Concept 2 Indoor Rowing Machine.
7. Another thing to focus on down the line is your conditioning and stamina. If you are training to become a professional boxer, you will need to work on your endurance. One thing that can help you build endurance is HIIT, or high intensity interval training. Jogging or running while shadowboxing regularly will also help.
