The Heavy Bag Route to Becoming “Fighting Fit”

By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large

I’ve written before about the benefits of heavy bag training, and I swear by heavy bag training myself, as it remains, after several decades, a centerpiece of my overall fitness and self-defense regimen. One of the particularly great aspects to heavy bag training is how it fully integrates both fitness and self-defense work; in order to properly engage the heavy bag, you have to strike it and kick it, over and over, with great speed and power.


The key to realizing a benefit from your heavy bag training is to apply a high degree of energy and enthusiasm to it. It’s little different from running in that way - if you’re a runner, you know when you’re really pushing things, and when you’re “half-stepping” just a bit. The bag will always be an inanimate object, so the benefit you derive from it is entirely dependent on the vigor with which you approach your training.

I will have a lot more to say about heavy bag training in the future, but I wanted to more generally broach the subject at this time, as well as introduce you to a very fine heavy bag instructional product in which you might be interested.

The Heavy Bag Blueprint is a program created by Muay Thai fighter Sean Fagan. Muay Thai is the “official” martial art of Thailand, and is known as “the art of eight limbs,” because it prioritizes the use of the fists, elbows, knees, and shins. It is principally a striking martial art, which I happen to like, and relies little on fine motor skill technique, which is as it should be in a self-defense situation.

The Heavy Bag Blueprint represents basically the “A to Z” of heavy bag training. The product is structured into four training modules that present the person looking for both serious fitness training and a heightened ability to execute powerful strikes…with a comprehensive set of instructional guideposts. The modules are: Heavy Bag 101; Advanced Combos; Drills & Burnouts; and Intense Workouts…and each is packed with all of the training you would expect to find in videos with those titles.

The Heavy Bag Blueprint comes with several bonuses, as well, that deal with subjects like diet, cutting weight, warrior mindset, applying specialized techniques to enhancing striking speed and power, and more. One other thing – The Heavy Bag Blueprint carries with it a 60-day, money-back guarantee, so if you decide anytime within the first two months of purchase that you’re not satisfied with the product, you can get your money back; how cool is THAT?

One side note: Use of some “salty” language will occasionally pop up in the materials, but it wasn’t anything that I found off-putting, so I have no problem suggesting this course. Plus, I have to keep in mind that pro fighters and others who live in the world of hardcore fitness and the fighting arts must, be necessity, keep an “edge” that sometimes evidences itself in that way. Like I said, I don’t see a problem with what’s contained in the materials, and I doubt you will, either, but I thought it appropriate to mention, nevertheless.


As I said earlier, there’s more information to come in this space on heavy bag training, but I wanted to get the word out on The Heavy Bag Blueprint as soon as I decided it is something worth having. Again, it’s a serious product for people who are themselves serious about taking their fitness and self-defense training to another level; if that’s you, then this should be right up your alley.
