heavy bag for my basement
Punching Bags



hey guys, great site!

i'm looking to buy a heavy bag for my new basement. i trained for several years at gleason's in brooklyn, had to give it up when my kids were born, now getting back into it. i am 6'0 and about 170lbs. i want to get a bag that feels the way they do at gleason's, as i'm planning to eventually return.

a few questions:

1. what weight should i get? i'm leaning towards 100lbs as i want plenty of resistance, but want the bag to move a bit as well.

2. the bag will hang from an i beam in my basement, which will be somewhere around 7.5' off the ground. will i have a problem getting the bag to fit/swing properly etc.?

3. what mechanism should i use to hang the bag for optimal use (as well as minimum noise as i have tenants living above the basement)?

4. what velcro gloves would you recommend? my old gloves from the gym are lace up, which will be challenging on my own in the basement...

thanks alot, i'm psyched to get back into it!!!
