Cool What size speedbag is best?

I've been thinking about buying a speedbag but I'm not sure if I want to buy the 9 X 6 or the 11 X 8 bag. I'm leaning towards the bigger one but still not sure.

A bigger bag will not move as quickly, and requires more strength to keep it going for your interval training. The smaller bags move faster and provide a smaller target for more accuracy.
If you want to work your shoulders more, go with a larger bag, if you want to focus on speed and precision, go with the smaller bags. I usually use a medium sizebag, or a small. 6X9 should be good for you.

I like working for endurance strength so I think i'll stick with the bigger bag. Thanks

No problem. Just curious Word, do you train at home, or in a gym?

Both at the gym at my college that has a speedbag and at the boxing gym about 4 times a week.

I started out on a bigger bag when I mastered that I used a smaller bag.
