    Heavy Bag after Lifting

    So after lifting, I'm still pretty jacked and feel like I need to do a high intensity workout to calm me down/wear me out.

    I figured a getting heavy bag would be a great way to go since I've heard it's great for cardio/stress relief.

    However, I'm concerned it will interfere with my weight lifting progress, especially since I mainly do upper body workouts. Will training with a heavy bag immediately after weight lifting have any negative side effects, i.e. more vunerable to injury?

    In all likelihood, the heavy bag will probably help but I just want to make sure I'm not about to injure myself or pull anything that would halt weight lifting progress.

    Thanks for the help!

    if you're still pumped up after lifting you're doing it wrong man lol

    after a hard arm workout I can barely pick my arms up, I couldn't imagine wailing at a heavy bag


    Most people do cardio after their workouts so it depends what you're really trying to accomplish with hitting the bag?

    why not mix it in with your lifting, like active recovery or even as HIIT or something.

    i think Everlast is a pretty trusted manufacturer of such things...

    lift...heavier

    but seriously what is your workout program? The only way im not completely spent after a workout is when I'm doing one of my days that is mostly machine or iso movements.

    Many gyms have heavy bags. I would just use the one there if one is present. I also agree, the people saying they lift to complete exhaustion are just talking trash for the most part. I certainly would reccomend lifting to failure on most sets. That certainly hasn't shown to increase muscle growth. Doing so for 40 sets or so on the entire workout would be the only way I would be 100% exhausted after a workout. Probably 1/2 through that I would have to start doing drop sets because I couldn't lift my heaviest anymore.

    Anyway if you are looking to heavy bag as a safe burnout after your workout, it makes sense.
