Exercises with Bulgarian Bags, like any other plyometric shock-training exercises , involve an increased risk of injury due to the large forces that are generated during acceleration, and should only be performed by well-conditioned individuals or under supervision.
For more information on risks involved in plyometric training, see safety considerations in plyometrics. Because the handles of the Bulgarian Bag are flexible and not rigidly fixed to the body of the equipment, it is harder for an athlete to transfer the weight of the equipment to his or her forearm and arm muscles than with traditional iron weights, and more load is carried by athlete's wrists.
The use of wrist wraps may therefore be advisable for people with weaker wrists to provide additional support. For general information about the effects of physical exercise on human body and the physiological processes involved, see exercise physiology.

Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B, Vol 96, pp. Retrieved from " https: A proper heavy bag workout, as it is sometimes referred to, is basically punching a heavy bag with a combination of different types of punches, by means of which you end up exercising different muscle groups of your body.
Some people prefer to focus only on the 'boxing' part of it, i. Others employ a combination of both punching as well as kicking, which in turn, makes for a complete body workout.
This unique yet effective workout is a good fitness option for both men and women. The following are some equipment required for a punching bag workout session: Before you begin with your workout, it is important to ensure that the heavy bag is properly positioned.
After you have hung the punching bag from the ceiling, make sure that it is secured properly to the swivel bracket and that it is at a comfortable height. Wear a pair of exercise shorts and a sleeveless vest so that you are comfortable, and your hands have maximum freedom of movement. Wrap your hands using hand wraps or bandage strips. For added measure, utilize the wrist wraps or the wrist tape so that you do not accidentally sprain your wrist.
Finally, put on the punching gloves and tie them securely. Delivering a proper punch is very important in order to avoid wrist injuries. Thus, it is always a good idea to know how a punch is delivered. Make a normal fist with all your fingers curled in and fingertips against the palm.
Don't place your thumb within the fist, let it rest on your index and middle finger. Hold your hands in a relaxed position when you throw the punch, tighten the fist at the precise moment of contact. Relax your hand and fist as soon as you pull back the punch.
Clenching your fist only at the time of contact will conserve your energy. It is also important to know the stance when you are working out. Place your feet at shoulder-width distance from each other and place them along the toe-heel alignment line. You left toe should be pointing towards the bag and your right leg should be facing outward with the heel aligned to the toe line of the other leg.
Your knee should be slightly bent in order to ground yourself. It is very important to learn different styles of punching before you start. Knowing these types will give you a better understanding about the workout. A jab is straight line fast punch, it doesn't have to be executed with force.
If you are right-handed then a jab punch is delivered with your left hand and vice versa. Similar to the jab punch, a cross punch is executed with much force and is generally delivered with your strong hand right if you are right-handed. It involves rotating of torso for maximum power.
