Heavy bag workouts are a sure-fire way to improve your strength and all-round conditioning. To build knockout power, Baker recommends hitting the bag as hard as possible for two-minute rounds. “Concentrate on using your feet, legs and hips to put maximum power in the punch, only letting your arm fly out at the last second.” Alternatively, duck and weave around the bag throwing rapid combinations in a variety of head and body shots. Work non-stop in three-minute rounds with one-minute breaks. “This one is best performed at the end of the workout to improve conditioning and stamina,” says Baker.
