start hitting the bag right,it seems you are throwing wild haymakers that makes no sense at all,also close your fist when you punch,you are punching with an open hand and awkwardly slapping the bag,so stand in front of a mirror for one month and just throw this combo jab,jab,right,repeat after 1 month try it on the bag

Uh.. I don't do bagwork. And even if I did, I think I do know the difference between a haymaker and a snappy jab. I seriously do not know how somebody could conclude this kind of stuff from a boxer's elbow - do you even know what it is?

Anyway, it appeared it was probably a remnant bonesplinter from a childhood-accident I had. Got some rontgens yesterday, hope I can box after this.

you do not do bag work then you are not a boxer,you said you have a snappy jab,why dont you take your time with your jab and instead of snapping go with the flow and throw it out easy after a while you will get the hang of how to throw the jab properly

No, I'm sorry not every boxer does bagwork. Would be foolish if we would start defining people on their bagwork instead of the fact that they box, wouldnt it? And.. I'm sorry, but why do you even bother replying when you don't even know what a boxer's elbow is - and when you don't even bother to research it before replying?

My god..

a boxer would have to do bag work,even in the old days a boxer would use a bag of laundry to hit,back to boxers elbow there is no such thing,on occasion i have awaken with a sore elbow and that was from doing an up and down motion with a beer in my hand,from table to mouth,i have been using a glass now and find that my elbow has healed:rimshot:

Well, nowadays there is Mitt work, which I prefer over the punching bag. Momentum is most important in a punch.

About the boxers elbow, this article is in Dutch, I'll translate it another day, but im sure youll understand the rontgen photos.

heavy bag improves, co-ordination, technique, power, strength, footwork, defense, speed.
obviously not all of these at the same time. but doing different exercises, you can accomplish all these.
you will not get far with your boxing if you do not use one.
