Punching and kicking the bag three times a week 326
I find that punching and kicking the boxing bag helps me relieves stress. You need a pair of gloves and bag. I also got the stand for it cause I didn't want to hang it. After I finish working out with it I feel a lot better..If I am mad or upset I just go and take it out on my bag.
