You really should hang the bag higher, better yet in the center of a imaginary ring so you can circle the bag and stick n move!

The camera is looking only slightly upwards, about 10-20 degrees.

The top end of the bag is at your pecs level when you stand - look at 0:32. Many inches below your eye level.

At your height you would face opponents who are 30-40 pounds heavier than your current weight - for them you would need much more power. Even at your weight, your opponents will be shorter and denser, so for them too you will need much more power.

I see that most of your punches land near your crotch level, you're leaning forward (both your neck and your back) creating tension in the torso, partially squatting (creating tension in the legs and hips), barely using any hip action, not following through your punches, not protecting your head properly, not enough agility (because of the tension from the incorrect posture)... basically it all looks like you'd be fighting a much shorter and lighter and weaker child.

You have a good, able body; you should not do yourself a disservice by not developing your technique properly. Get a proper bag at least 5 feet long, 6 feet if you want to practice kicks (you should, with your build), and hang it so that the top of the bag is above the top of your head by half a foot or a foot when you are standing up, so that the bag gives resistance even up in that height and you can develop powerful headshots as well, and generally able to execute all punches and kicks with power without the bag moving too much. Go for at least a 80, or preferrably 100-120 (especially for kicks) pounds bag. You need such a bag so that you can do a series of full power shots to various heights and targets, so that you can feel and learn how to compose and brace yourself for maximum power, speed and efficiency. If the bag is too light, you can't learn proper efficient technique.

Nope. The camera is slanted down because it’s my laptop. Plus I wanted people to see a little of my pushups so the camera was pointing down.

Squatting down while throwing body punches is a form of training that Mike Tyson used.

And what logic is that? My height does not determine what size fighters I have to face. There is no such thing as height classes. It’s called weight class, and since I’m 170-175Ibs, most of my opponents are usually below 6 feet.

I’m 6’2, pup.

I’ve watched your video. If you want to talk about punching, why are your punches so low? Shouldn’t you aim higher since all of your opponents are bigger than you?

You’re going based on height. That’s something I don’t have to worry about, but I understand why it’s your concern. It’s the biggest problem you have to overcome.

You need to elevate that bag - you are hitting at the height of your your hips, that is absolutely unrealistic, and gives you bad posture habits. Stop doing that!

You do realize the camera is at a very low angle? The bag is eye level when I stand. Plus all of my opponents are shorter than I am, so I don’t raise the bag over eye level.
