Boxing Training Q/A: The Advantages Of The Body Snatcher Bag.
Coach Rob, I’m looking at different bags, particularly _title_’s Big Bang Heavy Bag and the Body Snatcher Bag to add to my heavy bag workouts. Wonder if anyone has had experience with these or similar bags? One is like a big medicine ball and the other big on top and tapers down. Mostly I want to practice uppercuts/hooks and working at different angles. Obviously I can get a traditional uppercut bag but thought these might be better. I’m strictly doing Western boxing, no kicks or elbows. Thanks, Ian
Ian, Me and all my fighters and students LOVE the body snatcher bag in my gym, I use it far more than the upper cut bag because of what you stated you can do, punch off different angles and directions, over, under, side to the body, it’s a blast to work, you have to be careful with the uppercut bag because if you hit it wrong, it tears your wrists up!
Please let me know if you have any other questions and enjoy the bag. Here is a video clip on how to work the body snatcher bag.
