Customer Question on Punching Bags
Heavy Bag, Gloves and Instructional DVD

Boxing Depot: I would like to add a heavy bag to our basement home gym area. My wife is 5'7" and 120 pounds. I am 6'0" and 190 pounds. Neither of us has ever done any boxing training. The bag would hang from a unfinished basement floor joist. My question's are: What weight of bag? Type of hanging holder? Training gloves for both of us? Do you sell any instructional DVD's for beginning students/training? If you would include the links to the specific product recommendations on your website that would be great and easy for adding to my cart. Thanks very much. Great website!

Hey Tom. I think I should be able to make some recommendations.

For the bag, I recommend the 70lb Everlast Nevatear - bx-hv-162. It is affordable ($99) and durable. The weight should strike a good balance between you and your wife.

If the joist in question is wooden, this holder should do the trick - bx-ac-24. If it is a metal I-beam, consider this one - bx-ac-22.

Regarding the gloves - You have some options there. If you want something inexpensive, you could go with these - bx-gl-210. They provide decent protection but don't support the wrist or promote proper punching alignment. If you want something better, go with these - bx-gl-227. Very high quality with wrist support. If your wife has small hands you may want to consider these in junior or medium - bx-gl-217.

We do have some good dvds for you to choose from - http://www.boxingdepot.com/controller.aspx?type=view&info=search&a=ft&v=dvd.

Hope this helps!
