Try this for 1, 2 or 3 hours and you will get a great workout, improving hand eye coordination, accuracy, agility and footwotk; that also improves offence and defence abilities.

Averaging 1 punch a second that works out to be 3,600 punches in one hour; this may seem slow, but as this drill is not targeted or intended for increasing speed or power, yet it will over time improve these also.

As for focusing on just speed try this

Incorporating elbows and palm strikes is another option to consider in this punching workout.

Wearing light gloves is advised, as even though hitting a soft target, for many thousands of times, it will leave its mark on your knuckles.

This workout can also be performed with a ball used horizontally, that has a ribbon going through it and attached on the left and right; which makes it good for practing straight punches and upper cuts on.

As this is inexpensive and can be set up easily in many places, it is most certainly going to improve your fighting skills at a low cost but most importantly, it requires your focused attention span towards becoming and making it effective.

Are you up for the challenge?

I don't find the value with challenges of this type because once fatigue sets in, and it will set in, no matter the degree, bad starts to creep in. Often times, bad muscle memory starts confusing the intent with the content across the board.

It's not the quantity but the quality of the technique(s), punches, in this case. Perhaps it's akin to when one's at the gym lifting weights, and it's not the weight that's important, but it's the amount of reps that's important.

Just not my cup of tea of a challenge.

Yes fatigue sets in, just like a marathon (quantity and quality) and recovery time takes longer because the effort was deeper but doing it on a Friday evening whilst many are partying; having the weekend to recover is just enough time, to get back on track for Monday morning training.

I'm usually a heavy hitter type so going for quantity is something of a novelty.

There are other factors however of course that can help understand one's self better, such as testing one's stamina and endurance; as many bouts are lost to a lack of conditioning.

Pushing one's self beyond normal levels does take extraordinary focus and determination; which builds self confidence.

As for muscle memory, if said techniques are sound from start to finish then practicing this way isn't an issue.

As some people thrive on "new" challenges where others prefer other ways of being motivated.

Personally I enjoy challenges; as is not every fight a challenge?
