Checklist For Punching Bags
- A punching bag for adults should have a size of about 100 to 150 cm. A length of 120 cm is optimal for beginners in boxing.
- As a rule of thumb for the weight of a punching bag, it should weigh at least half of your own body weight.
- Size and weight must be adapted to the available space. In general, the larger a punching bag is, the more stable and easier it is to hit.
- Leather is the highest quality and most durable material for a punching bag, but also correspondingly expensive.
- Synthetic leather offers a good alternative to real leather. Here you should pay special attention to a high-quality processing of the seams.
- A filled punching bag takes a lot of work off your shoulders as a beginner, since you don’t have to worry about the proper filling.
- Rubber granules or fabric scraps are more suitable as filling material than pure sand, as this makes the punching bag very hard and can lead to injuries.
- The best training effect is achieved with a punching bag hanging from the ceiling. This gives you a greater range of motion.
- Ceiling mounts should be able to support about twice the weight of the punching bag.
- If you have little space, you can also use a standing punching bag. The base of such a punching bag should be able to be filled with at least 50 kg of sand or water weight or have a corresponding dead weight.
- A wall or ceiling mount or a fillable stand for a standing punching bag should be included in a set. Also, make sure you have appropriate screws and dowels for a secure setup.
- Steel chains are the most stable mounting option on a ceiling mount. The length of the chains should be chosen so that the top edge of the punching bag hangs about 10 cm above your head.
- Padded boxing gloves made of synthetic leather are useful to protect your hands and increase the training effect.
