I think the perfect set for you would be this one right here: bx-hv-837. 60lbs is a good bag weight for your experience and body type, and you get the gloves and handwraps included.

So I'm looking at heavy bag training for a more enjoyable alternative of a cardio workout as well as increasing punching power(I find jogging rather boring!). I'm 6'1 187lbs and although I'm fairly inexperienced with heavy bags at large, I do a fair amount of weight training as it is and am unsure if 70lbs would swing too much and if I should up to 80 or even 100lbs.

70lbs would be fine for you, although after you get used to using it you will find that it swings around. This can actually be an enjoyable component as you get to work on your footwork and timing.

If you want something that will hang a bit more still and let you wail on it, go up in weight to 80-100.

Hey Sara, let me tackle each piece of your question separately.

The price disparity you are seeing between the two bags can stem from a variety of reasons. The first is specials. Sometimes we run specials or sales on different equipment that can provide unique opportunities to get very good equipment or packages at a low price. That is part of the heavy bag kit's situation right now. However, it also has to do with the quality of the bag. Both are high quality, but the bag in the heavy bag kit is polycanvas while the bag selected on this page is genuine leather. As you might imagine leather is a pricier material.

The weight of the bag can effect the price, but generally only a little bit. The construction of the bag is more important in that regard. Some boxers enjoy the experience of leather, and it is time tested as a reliable material that can take a beating. That being said, polycanvas is excellent as well.

When shopping for weight, the-heavier-the-better is not always true. You'll want to take into consideration your body weight and experience punching. The more body weight you have the more weight you can sink into each punch, therefore a heavier bag is appropriate to absorb that impact without flailing all about. However if you are a beginning puncher you don't want to injure yourself on an overly hard and heavy bag.

To build a strong punch consider those two things. If you're body weight is 160-200 go with the 80lb bag, if it is less go with the 70. These are just generalizations but should help if you are trying to narrow down options.

My husband & I were very inspired by the "Antonio Tx" on HGTV for Mario Lopez's boxing garage. I would like to do the same for him but ..what should I start him out with as far as punching bags or those "get started sets"? He's 5'6 and 150 lbs or so. Help! His b-day is next week!

Punching the speed bag will definitely be lower impact on your joints and knuckles, and keeping the arms raised and moving is a great way to get tone. That being the case, I would probably recommend speed bag for your needs. However, like you said, a heavy bag offers a much wider variety of activities and and may make your workouts more diverse and interesting.

Hey Eric - you'll probably want something in the 100lb range. If you want the bag to swing for you, you could get a little less and work on footwork. If you just want it as a tool for striking then something a little heavier like 100 would be best.

I would even go higher and reccomend a 150 lb bag. I like to be able to stand and crank shots as hard as possble without the bag flying all over, and if you want to "vent frustration" i would assume that is the way you'd like to do it as well!

punching bag

My son is 6 feet tall and 133 pounds. Never boxed before. Wanting to let some frustration out, what size punching bag would you recommend?

Hi Elizabeth - the 70lb-90lb range would probably be most appropriate for your son. Leather is generally considered the most durable exterior, but since he is new and will be using it as a stress management tool rather than a boxing training device, any exterior should be fine (including vinyl and canvas).

If you want more sway and a more rewarding feel when just starting out, go lighter - say 60lb. Or get the Hydro Strike back, fill it only partially with water and top it off when he's stronger and wants to hit a heavier bag.

This bag is actually filled, but if you did get an unfilled bag here's what to do:
Put some sand (25lb should be enough) in a heavy duty garbage bag and put at the bottom of the bag, this will keep the bag still. Then pack the rest with a soft stuffing. This can be old clothing, rags, shredded newspaper, pillow stuffing - you get the idea. If you can get some carpet padding line the bag with it before putting in the stuffing. This will give the bag a more uniform look and feel. Make sure to pack the stuffing down tightly.

Punching Bags Expert FAQs
     
  1. What weight heavy bag should I get?

    70lb-90lb bags are the most commonly purchased bags and are appropriate for adults in the 140-170lb weight range. These bags often provide the right blend of resistance and give.
    For individuals who are 170+lbs or who have developed significantly increased punching power, you may want to shop for 100+lb bags.
    Lighter bags in the 25lb-60lb range are great for children or smaller adults who are just starting out in their training regiment.
    When deciding what weight to get, keep in mind that getting a bag that is a bit lighter will increase the sway and motion during your training. This can be beneficial if you are looking to improve your footwork and reactions. Heavier bags have a tendency to stay in place and are better for developing penetration power.

  2.  
  3. How do I hang up my heavy bag?

    You will have two main options for hanging up your heavy bag - installing it into your ceiling or purchasing a mobile stand.
    Many people who have garages or finished basements choose to install the bag directly into a support beam in their ceiling. To do this they either purchase a simple holder or attachment which can be securely fastened to the beam. This method is inexpensive, but it can also be troublesome due to the noise heavy bag training makes. If the beam the bag is attached to connects with the rest of the house, it might cause vibration and noise when struck.

    The second option is purchasing a free stand. These steel constructed units can either be purposed solely for heavy bags, or involve multiple stations for different kinds of bags. It is recommended that users weight the bottom of the device to minimize shifting as the bag is struck and swung.

  4.  
  5. What kind of hand protection should I use?

    It's important to use proper hand protection during training routines, especially if you are just starting out on the heavy bag. A combination of handwrap + bag glove is your best bet.
    Handwrap is an an inexpensive cloth roll that is used to protect the knuckles and skin from abrasion while securing the wrist for repeated impact. Bag gloves are designed with extra padding and firm support in order to disperse the impact of strikes and reduce the strain on your joints. Different bag gloves have different thicknesses, and the sturdier the heavy bag the more padding you might want in your gloves.

  6.  
  7. What kind of bag exterior is best?

    The main exterior types are vinyl, nylon, canvas, and leather. Other options include synthetic leather, polycanvas, and Everlast's Nevatear.
    Professional gyms and locations that use heavy bags frequently choose leather bags for their superior durability and feel. Leather bags are more expensive and require that you rub moisturizer into them occasionally to prevent cracking. Vinyl, nylon, and canvas bags are less expensive and don't require maintenance, making them popular choices for at-home use. Canvas bags are durable but very abrasive against bare knuckles.
