Customer Question on Punching Bags
Bag for 7 and 9 years old boys

Hello,

I have two boys, ages 7 and 9, and they both have been asking for a punching bag for our basement long enough that I am going to get them one for Christmas. They have no boxing experience but are beginning to work out in the basement with dad and they'd like to add it to their routine. What bag would you recommend, and also gloves to prevent injury? I am sure my husband would be delighted to use the bag as well, but he is 6 foot 1, 220, so I don't know if there is a bag out there that would be good for all of them...

Please advise...a DVD would be great too. Thanks!

Hi KG. One of your biggest obstacles is going to be getting the bag to hang low enough for the kids but high enough for dad. That being said, I might recommend this muay thai style bag: bx-hv-1102.

Although it's heavy, the weight is distributed along a long surface (longer than normal punching bags). That means your kids won't have to hit up at the bottom of the bag and potentially hurt their hands (over time weight tends to settled at the bottom of bags, making it harder than the rest of the surface).

You may already have something like this, but you'll also need a mount to attach it to the basement ceiling: http://www.boxingdepot.com/punchingbag-wall-mounts.html.

As for gloves, your husband might enjoy something like this: bx-gl-1205 (12 oz), while the kids would be better suited with something like this: bx-gl-453 or this bx-bg-52.
