In this article I am going to share with you one of the best workouts and pieces of equipment for the home. Besides shadow boxing which is one of my favorites. The next best thing to have for your home is the heavy bag for a heavy bag workout routine. Here is why.
You have probably thought about this problem. Having a home gym, bench press, or weight machine in your home. What if company comes over? A bench press in the living room does take away from the decor of things. But what about convenience, health, and fitness? We do not have a spare workout room. So I started thinking mobile!
I get up in the morning to do my home workout. I incorporate as much Muay Thai as possible. Muay Thai elbows, knees, shadow boxing, etc. The heavy bag was the solution.
1. You can hide it in a closet or hide it in the corner. Take it in the garage, upstairs, or move it wherever. It is totally mobile for when you have guests. But comes back out for the ground and pound every morning.
2. The workout is awesome. You can sit on top of it and do Muay Thai elbows. Helps work the stomach too. You can practice punching while on top. You can practice side knees. Great workout in itself.
3. Use it just like a bench press. I use my dumbbells and lay on the heavy bag and do dumbbell presses. You get the full range of motion in your shoulders. You can also do dumbbell butterflies. Again, you get the full range of motion while on the heavy bag.
4. Your stomach muscles get hit too. Because it is a round bag your muscles work to stabilize your body. You can also turn and sit different ways to do crunches and sit-ups on the bag. You could add small weights if you wanted to do weighted sit ups. Or just use the heavy bag to anchor your feet under to do sit ups.
The heavy bag workout routine is so versatile. When you are done you simply move the bag out of the way! You will be happy and feel like a champ. Life is good! You will have worked your stomach, arms, and done knees and elbows. If I only knew what a great workout the heavy bag was on the ground along time ago. So don’t hang it-throw it on the ground and start your ground and pound.
