Speed bags are used for creating speed and eye contact. My coach had a few exercises that we used for the speed bag. One of the exercises we used after we finished working out is kind of bringing the bag and staying right in front and making sure your head movement is in place. You use the speed bag get a close way to approach to you and then you start moving your head. That kind of gives you some eye contact, making sure your reflexes are good like the punch is coming to you. Another thing is go ahead and start getting a good time and good rhythm by punching the speed bag. This is a few things that we use the speed bag for. Remember speed bags are used for creating speed on your hands, some good rhythm on it, eye contact and this is what a speed bag is used for.
