I usually stick to getting my combinations down and making sure I improve my jab. Being tall all of my power punches come from setting up my jab so when working with the bag I focus on getting the timing of my combinations down, footwork, etc.
I used the bag a lot in my workouts. 6-7 even 8 rounds. Jab-jab-rt cross-L.hook, probably 2.3 of the time. Combinations the rest of the time. Being 5-11 and 165 I was taller than 3/4 of my oppononts so needed the jab. Sometimes work the jab exclusively for 1-2 rounds. Also worked quick rt hand lead followed by a left... my treat for the southpaws
When I hit the bag, the first round I jab, jab, jab, and sudenly unload on it. I throw about 8-9 punches, for example I'l triple jab then come over with my right and left hook to the lower section of the bag, then double jab,and finaly come in with my strongest arm/punch my right cross.
