Customer Question on Punching Bags


My son is 17 and he wants a punching bag to help keep him in shape during the summer since there aren't any jobs aroud here this year. He is 6'4" and weighs about 270, he plays football, basketball and track. I think it would be good for him but I'm not sure what kind of bag or how heavy of a bag to get get him. He has used the small bag at school but really small. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Jo. Your son seems both big and athletic, so you'll want a heavier bag. It also seems like he is inexperienced in striking (ie boxing, martial arts, etc) so you'll want to step the weight back a touch because of that.

I recommend an 80 or 100lb bag. 80 would swing more but still provide resistance, while 100 would provide added resistance. Check this bag out specifically, it offers both weights at a reasonable price: bx-hv-162.

Also don't forget to get him gloves! I recommend these: bx-bg-326, size large.
