How Heavy a Bag does one need?

I'm 5'11" -- 200lbs. and looking to buy a Punching bag. But, how heavy a bag do I need? Is there a rule of thumb for this? Do I get something that is Half my weight, a little over, or a little under that?

Hi Jaime. Generally speaking the two things to consider are body weight and experience in boxing. If you're just getting started you'll want a heavy bag that's a little bit lighter and more forgiving on your hands. That being the case, 80lbs might be a pretty good choice.

If you feel like your punching experience is pretty good you could go up to 100lb.
