Would a punch bag help me loose weight quickly ? and other ideas welcome mostly home exercises though
Will it help? Yes most certainly. Will it be fast? Not as much as you hope. First off a heavy bag is very hard to keep wailing on for hours and hours. Think I am wrong try it out at a gym that has one going for 30 minutes all out is incredibly difficult. Also you are not working out your largest muscles aka the ones in your legs.
Try jump rope (thats what boxers do on top of heavy bag training). Jogging is good. Burpees work if you have the ceiling clearance. I personally underestimated my jumping ability and jammed my fingers into the drywall.
I hope this helps

The heavy bag is one of my favorite warm up tools,that and bleacher running(long steps)the running will get your heart rate up in a hurry,and the bag will give you more recovery time,usally do 10-15min running,20min bag to hit everything before lifting,heavy bag and bleachers are like hiit,all out with alittle recovery time.
