Hey I'm 16 and 175lbs. I actually don't want to take up boxing as a sport but I like hitting stuff ( I know it sounds stupid ) but would this bag be good for me for simply training and exercise?

Yes I think 80lbs would be a nice weight for you. It will provide some resistance, but not too much so as to promote injury.

If you are fairly new to hitting a bag I would recommend 100lbs. If you have a lot of experience you can bump up to 120-150lbs.

The key for a youngster just getting started is a good pair of gloves. Shope for a glove that has small or medium size and aim for a higher amount of foam padding (14 or 16 oz). After that, pick up some handwraps in case there is extra space in the gloves. Finally, go for a heavy bag that is a little lighter, maybe around 60lbs, so that it isn't immovable for him.

I am 5'4 1/2" and 130 lbs and 14 should I use a 70 or 80 lb heavy bag and when I am working out what are some precautions I should take

Either would be ok I think, but if you are a beginner I might err on the side of 70lb. As for precautions -

Be sure to use gloves and secure the wrist tightly, this will prevent sprains. Start off with light contact and intensity until your body gets used to the impact of the bag. Also be sure the the mount you use to attach the bag to the ceiling is secure, and that the beams aren't cracking under the stress.

Proper bag weight

Hey!
im 6'5" and about 290lbs and im looking for a good size heavy bag for occasional use. I include some boxing in my regular workout. I was wondering if this is an appropriate size bag for me or do i need something bigger? any suggestions?

Hey Charles. I'd say this bag is on the lower end of your usability spectrum. You could go with 80-100lbs in my mind. The lighter causing more swing, the heavier more stability.

Check this one out for a heavier alternative: bx-hv-721.

These bag gloves are base level, which means they will protect your skin from abrasion and your knuckles from some impact.

They are a good starting point before you invest in more serious gloves.

Hey Brusk. Yea this bag is a good weight and quality level for you, I think you'll find it just right.

The only thing you'll need in addition to this kit is a ceiling mount, found here: bx-ac-36.

Right now we don't offer any packages with the stand included. You'll have to grab one of those separately. Also be sure to check shipping as sometimes heavy items cannot be shipped to certain countries.

Here are bag stands: http://www.boxingdepot.com/heavy-bag-stand.html.

A bag this size is a good standard for non-expert users. The money matter can be worked out during the checkout process.

Unfortunately we don't have any bags under $50. The kit you are on right here, the platinum, is a great choice though if you can wrangle $90.

Hey bj. This kit would be ok, but I would probably suggest a little lighter bag to ideally suit your body type. Something like this: bx-hv-707, or this: bx-hv-837.

Hi betho. I'm not a dietary expert or physician, but I am a martial artist so perhaps I can offer an opinion for your consideration.

The key 'secret' is regulating diet and getting regular exercise. A lot of times people think of exercise as running and weight lifting, but it isn't just those two things. There are a lot of ways you can 'trick' yourself into exercising by doing things that are fun or interesting.

A 15-20 regiment on the heavy bag 3-4 times a week would be a great start. In addition, since you are a martial artist, I highly recommend you incorporate kata training a couple of times a week. Kata can challenge you muscles and keep you body guessing.

In addition, I utilize a book called 'The Okinawa Program' to improve the quality of my diet. It isn't really a diet plan like weight watchers or anything like that. It's more of an explanation as to how the Okinawans became the longest lived people on the planet, and how you can integrate that healthiness into your life.

Hope this helps!

Bag/Weight

Hi... I'm 6.2 and probably weight around 180lb. I have never used a punching bag before but I was thinking about using one as a new type of workout. I have an average body structure and probably an average/weak strength for a guy my size. I am looking for a workout that gives me a good cardio as well as strength training.
What kind of bag would i need? How heavy should it be?
Thank you very much

Normally I would recommend 90-100lbs for you in regards to the heavy bag weight, but I think you would enjoy this kit as well.

Expect it to swing on you once you get a little better at using it.

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.
