Top Three Reasons to Punch Out the Stress With An At-Home Heavy Bag

There has never been a more important time to stay healthy. Working out at home helps your mind and body stay strong. Coach Justin lets us know his top three reasons to punch it out at home with the heavy bag.

# 3 Heavy Bags Enhance Boxing Technique: Boxing on a heavy bag gives you a physical target to practice proper placement and distancing.

#2  Heavy Bags Help Build Strength: Punching a bag increases balance, hand eye coordination, increases physical stability, bone/ligament strength and density as well as increasing cardiovascular and physical endurance.

#1 Heavy Bags Decrease Stress: Punching a bag is cathartic. When you punch a bag, your brain increases the production of endorphins, the natural chemical which elevates one’s mood. It also helps relieve muscle tension that can collect when you experience stress.

There are tons of options out there to fit any size home and any budget! BoxUnion also offers two versions of our own at-home, freestanding heavy bag.
