How to use double end bag

What are some drills to do with a double end bag. I just hit it then try to slip when it comes back. Any suggestions?


Pointless, imo.

It doesn't develop power nor speed. It's just good for throwing accurate punches at quick targets. HOWEVER, you could do that by sparring or focus mitts.

If you don't have access to either, then you could use DE bags. I guess.

sometimes it is good if you are still flinching when punches coming at your face...sharpens your slips

hit it coming back at you, don't hit it moving away.

It's a good tool for developing slipping and countershots.

It's also helpful for balance. You can hit a heavy bag improperly, but if your footwork is off using that double end bag you'll fall off balance for sure.
