The faster you can go the better. Is your speedbag mounted on a solid platform with a high-quality ball bearing swivel? A quality swivel and a solid/dense platform for it to rebound off of make a HUGE difference in the speed that the bag will move. If your good in that department, then read on.
You may be able to hit the bag successfully with one arm, or maybe the other, but can you switch back and forth fluidly? Can you hit the bag 1-2-3 times with your left and switch to 1-2-3 times with your right and so on with higher or lower number of repetitions, without skipping a beat on the speedbag? (Like 2 hits with the left, then 1 hit with the right, and so on)If you have mastered doing that with the size bag you are on, than you should move on to a medium size, or small size bag and go form there.
The smaller the bag, the faster it is going to move, and the more coordination and speed are needed to use it.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. We dont abandon our forum members here.

Excellent. Glad I could help. If you have any questions about where to get that stuff, or if you need to solidify your platform, let me know. By the way, what type of platform do you have? Does it moun to the wall, or is it part of one of those combo gyms?

I find its also a really good way to "warm up" your shoulders and rotator cuffs before going full speed on the heavy bag. Its much easier to get injured if you dont use the speedbag first.

But it also is a good shoulder workout, and as Bill said, its great for hand/eye coordination.
