    Heavy bag training on off days?


    Hey all- I just put up my heavy bag in my basement after it sat in the garage for about a year. I'm wondering if I lift mon-wed-fri, would it be overkill to hit the bag on an off / cardio day? Like would the impact hinder muscular growth from extra trauma? Thanks

    any opportunity to maintain and improve boxing skill is a plus in my opinion. try it and see how you feel, if it interferes with your recovery and future workouts then consider skipping it on the days you need to.

    I like heavy bag work for my cardio personally. I don't use it all the time but it's definitely my second favorite way to get my cardio in...next to my bjj/mma classes ofcourse.

    I would try to do it on training days, but I know many mma fighters who do it on non training days. Listen to your body

    Yea I am
    By no means a fighter or boxer.. Would just be a different form of cardio for change of pace.. So I wouldn't really be hitting the bag SO hard.. More so just the form n technique n footwork

    I either box, jumprope, swim, or play racquetball for cardio. Occasionally sprints
