Heavy Bag

Woo Hoo! My new 50 pound heavy bag arrived. I just put it up on the power rack to look at it and we'll decide where to hang it later. very very nice canvas and well filled. quality stuff. Not to mention great for sandbag training.Very hard to grip and awkward,I can tell that already.Man I so love beinga ble to train again and am truly thankful and humbled by how important and beautiful the simplest of movements are.
I spent my whole life chasing extreme movement and performance and what really, really matters was what we all do everyday.squatting lunging, pushing pressing bending twisting and gait. Primal Patterns. Oh yeah, and punching. Posted by Picasa

Highly recommended, Rodney King Sparring 101. Have fun. Watch YouTube of the Thai's as well.
If Thai does not agree with your hips or knee,...Look into Daniel Duby's Street Savate.

Nice bag! I always liked Rossboxing.com, Ross Enamait's site. i will have to look at Rodney King's sparring, I have heard some good things about him. (It's not the other Rodney King)

I can't help but think of the rocky theme song Rif;)

Both excellent resources suggested by Tom Furman. As well as Rossboxing.com...Ross is a good guy and there is some video there of him working a bag that is pretty brutal and impressive.

Larry Hartsell has a DVD or video on a bagwork workout as well. He is heavily battle scarred so it might be appropriate for you ;-))~

thanks Tom. Yes I really need a very basic, almost remedial program. one for high mileage guys would be great.
