Nice first bag.

I've been in Tae Kwon Do for about 6 months now. I began at age 40. I'm a runner just completing my first half-marathon this year in 1:47 and change. So I'm new to martial arts and contact sports, but fit and used to work.

This is my first home bag. I've used a few different models in martial arts classes and the regular gym. Sure, I'd have loved to get a leather bag. This bag IS cloth. Work on it bare-handed and you won't have much skin left in short order. With gloves on though, this is a terrific bag for someone working it two or three times a week at home. The bag doesn't have a specific layer of padding around the outside like the leather bags from Ringside, but is still comfortable. Does NOT feel like a sand bag at all. Spend the extra money if you want the leather bag, those are really nice. But for occasional use this is perfect. Plus the leather bags require care if you're going to hang them in a hot/cold garage all year.

Mounting chains and swivel are fine mounting hardware. I just doubled up a couple of two by fours and secured those to ceiling joists in my garage and used a length of chain from home depot with a couple of d-rings to hang it up. Working the bag on this setup is quiet enough that I skipped using a spring to hang the bag.

Bottom line: This bag is priced like an average bag from the mass market makers, but it feels much better.

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.

  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.

  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.
