Does a heavy bag have a place in my routine?
bigdude posted a topic in General FitnessHi all, A little background for you: 44yo, 308lbs (down from 350) with a target of 250 in July 2016. I'm doing treadmill/elliptical 4-5 days per week and I'm 6 weeks or so into SL5x5. I'm eating a modest deficit with a 2lb /week goal. Protein strong, whole grains only, nothing boxed. For some reason, I have the idea of adding a heavy bag to my home gym... I guess I want to hit some stuff and do something with my new found and developing strength. So, I'm wondering: Is there a good place for the heavy bag in my routine? Or will it just interfere with recovery from my lifting sessions? It would be a month or more away before I'd add it. I'm thinking it would allow me some upper body cardio (and a little stress relief). Do any of you make use of a heavy bag? If so, how do you incorporate it? Thanks, Matt
