  • I don't use boxing as a training tool, but I might if I had a base training of it from youth. During my training camp before London Olympics I was at Hotel Alfamar training centre in Portugal. I am not usually around bags in my normal facilities but there was a bag in the weight room there. During rest periods between sets I contemplated to translation of this exercise for throwing and I realized that bag work would be a perfect transition exercise for retired throwers. It harnesses the athlete's existing nervous system conditioning(punching, throwing, torso twisting) and adds the aerobic element for athletes looking to transition back to "civilian" life.
