Customer Question on Punching Bags
are punching bags bad for the heart?

Hi. I want to buy a punching bag, but my dad says its bad for the heart of a 14/15 year old like me. Is that true?

Hi Shadowmaster. I'm not qualified to give medical advice, and if you have pre-existing heart conditions you absolutely would want to consult a physician before starting a heavy bag regiment.

That being said, for "typical" healthy individuals heavy bag training helps to strengthen the heart and improve cardio fitness. Here is a nice little article on it - http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/benefits-hitting-punching-bag-sand-bag-7012.html, and you can continue doing research on the topic.
