Height Adjustment

I am 5'6"., What height should I adjust my reflex bag and which part on the bag should I measure it from?
Thanks.

Olet - that all depends on what kind of strikes you want to practice. Start out around shoulder height and then go higher and lower depending on if you want to train body blows, strikes against 'taller opponents', etc etc.

Standing Punching Bag Expert FAQs
     
  1. What kind of standing bags are there?

    Within the standing bag genre there is an excellent variety of options for you to choose from. The most common freestanding bag consists of a fillable plastic basin with an adjustable neck protruding from the top. Attached to that neck is a soft foam filled bag that feels a lot like a traditional nylon heavybag.
    A different variety of bag involves a full-body-length striking surface that is secured to the basin and is non-adjustable. Much different than those two types is the B.O.B. (body opponent bag). This device is shaped like the upper torso of a man and can be used to focus strikes on different anatomical parts of the human body. These are excellent for anyone looking to increase their accuracy and strike selection.
    The final type of freestander available is the reflex bag. This is much smaller than a heavy bag and requires much less weight to stay in place. The point of this bag is not to develop punching power, but to acquire rhythm, timing, and fluidity.

  3. Do I need to fill the base? If so, with what?

    For most freestanding bags you will need to fill the basin yourself. Sending the base empty reduces shipping cost significantly.
    The two most common types of fill used in bag basins are plain water and sand. Water is quick, free, and can be dumped out whenever you need to pack up the bag and move it to a different location. Every basin is built to be waterproof (unless explicitly stated otherwise). Sand is a reliable alternative as you needn't worry about liquid spills or leaks even after extensive wear and tear.

  5. Will my freestanding bag slide around?

    Freestanding bags are generally designed to resist sliding and skidding during training. However, there are some things you can do to ensure maximum stability for your bag. First, fill the basin to it's proper amount and maintain that level as time goes by. If you've chosen to fill it with water, the water might evaporate slowly which will cause the bag to slip easier. Second, place the bag on a grippy surface. Even the best of bags might slip on slick concrete. Third, if you wish, you can purchase an extra non-slip cover that fits around the basin of your bag.

  7. Short body vs long body type bags

    When it comes to heavy bag style freestanders, there are two main styles - the short body and the long body. Short body bags are frequently adjustable and can be made to fit the height of the practitioner using it. Boxers enjoy the smaller striking surface because it provides them greater flexibility and feedback, which allows them to integrate an element of rhythm into their training, much like they might do with the swinging of a standard heavy bag.
    The long body bag is preferred by martial artists and kickboxing practitioners that want to integrate kicking into their routine. The length of the striking surface allows them to use both punches and kicks without having to constantly adjust the striking surface.
