Do standing bags offer good resistance?

I have never used a standing heavy bag before; only hanging bags. Do the standing bags offer the same type of resistance, weight, and overall workout, as hanging bags do? I'm trying to get a sense of whether you lose any of the benefits of a traditional heavy bag workout. Thanks.

Hey John. Actually standing bags do behave a little differently. In general, the weight of a standing bag is in the basin, with the striking surface filled entirely with foam padding. That being the case, it is easier on the hands and flexes with your strikes more readily.

A traditional hanging heavy bag provides more resistance and weight.

When using a standing bag, your workout can still be very good, but it will be slightly different.

Adjustable freestanding heavy bag is stuck

I have a PowerCore Freestanding Heavy Bag, which is adjustable by just twisting a pulling up. I got this yesterday and some how, it all of a sudden became stuck and with a long long time and several tries later of getting it unstuck, we have not been successful. Wondering if anyone has some tips of how to free it up, otherwise I may have to return it. thanks

Unfortunately without a picture or two it's going to be hard to see exactly what's going on. I've never experienced a stuck adjustable bag myself.

speed reflex bag

How do I fill the base? There is no cap to open, no openings in base at all and if I remove screws from the center that holds the pole I don't see anywhere to fill it?
Thank you

As far as I have been able to tell the bottom piece is not sold separately. You may be able to call the manufacturing company (century) and inquire about that though.

filling the base: sand or water

Is one better than another?? and why?
Some say water is better b/c of the wave motion...what is that and how does it benefit the workout??

Hey ank. The wave motion is when the bag sloshes back, and then forwar. Some people like that effect because it creates a rythym and movement for the bag. However, water requires a little bot more upkeep as it can evaporate over time. Conversely, when youre ready to pack up the bag and move it somewhere else, you can just dump water outside or on the sink.
