HIIT with rope and punching bag..

I workout out at home.. I got lots of weights and bars and benches, but nothing really for cardio.

All I got is a very functional punching bag (as in, if I start hitting it really hard, it will sometimes come off its hook, heh) and a skipping rope.

How would I go bout doing HIIT with those?

    For the punch bag, I would do combos solidly and put everything into it for 3 minute rounds like a boxing match, with rest in between each round.

    It's hard to do HIIT style skipping because it's not very impact at all, so I would just do a steady rate cardio session.

    How about give it all you got 3 minute boxing, followed by slow skip-roping??

    After a 3 minute boxing round you will need the rest mate.

    Isn't HIIT all about going full-out for a couple of minutes, then going slowly for a few minutes to recuperate, then loop it?

    and

    When boxing, should I be hitting the bag really hard or simply "touching it and pulling back"? I personally prefer hitting it with full force, but this puts great strain on my wrists, so I'm gonna buy wrist wraps and 16oz gloves...what's your take on it?

    I'll let others comment about hiit.

    Wearing hand wraps and 16oz gloves is a very good idea.

    You should be hitting the bag gently on some of your punches. All the punches in boxing aren't thrown at full power.

    For example you might throw a double jab at head height with reduced power but the punches will be very quick. You could then throw a left hook to the head with the same hand that you have just jabbed with but at full power.

    Or you might throw a light but fast jab to the stomach which would hopefully draw the opponents guard down in the ring and then throw a powerfull straight right to the head after the jab.

    Basically you should mix the power of your punches up which would find openings in your opponents guard in the ring and keep your opponent guessing.

    ditto boxer, and;

    if you have little experince with a bag only hit it lightly to start off, or at very least, hit it lightly fter a couple of rounds of full contact... your hands wont be able to take the punishment without wraps and as you get tired your straights[in particular] get sloppy, leading to an increased risk of you snapping your wrists by wolloping the bag with poor form. seen it happen, not pretty.

    imo: also, if you haven't got a heavy bag, or someone to hold it, then don't go all out anyway, you cannot hit it properly/learn the strikes with it coming off the bracket/swinging all over the place.

    there is no resonb why you can't do ~HIIT with a rope, they do it every session in my boxing gym. allout for 30 sec-2min depending on fitness level, then slower for 2-3 mins. loop.

    My bag is called a "heavy bag" but it's only 50 or 75lbs and yea, when I do hit it hard it will swing somewhat. Plus, the last time I went all out on it I busted the hook :P

    About the wrists, would you recommend using wraps then? Or just go lighter and let the wrists get used to it? (My own opinion on this would be wraps just to be sure..)

    my opinion, [although widely discouraged at my boxing gym is this]:

    use bag glove and go light to condition your [whatevers=bones/tendons/skin] to the feel of impact, then get some wraps after and go v.light with wraps and no gloves, then go wraps and gloves and nail that bstrd bag.

    altyhough i started out using an argos 20kg punchbag with no gloves and rarely use them, its only cos i knoe the fella who owns my boxing gym well that i get away with it. [wraps only].

    textbook answer:

    wraps, gloves and go light. [zzzzzz...]

    I`ve been using the work out rope rountine from Coach Davis`s Renagade Training. If anyone can complete that and still state its not HIIT i will glady consume my brand new speed rope.

    White Tiger you should wear hand wraps and 12oz or 16oz boxing gloves on the punch bag.

    Would boxing someone else constitute a good cardio workout?

    Sparring is a very good workout.

    I don't advise it for you though. Sparring is about practising your boxing skills not just fighting.

    No offense mate but I get the feeling that you have not boxed before.

    I haven't, and when I said fighting someone else I meant with headguards and mouthpieces and was mainly referring to my brother who has about the same experience boxing as me (none!)...so even playing fields. lol.

    jigga, is that like an obilique kick [no higher than groin, although usually aimed at knee area, and usually with sole of foot?]
