Choosing a Heavy Punching Bag

There are many different punching bags for sale here in our shop, so how are you supposed to make a decision? Having a ton of options is usually a good thing, because you know you will be able to really find a product that you're happy with. But where do you begin?

One thing to consider when choosing a heavy punching bag is the size and weight of the bag itself. A common weight is 75 pounds or 80 pounds. This will be a large boxing heavy bag and it will provide a great workout, but it won't be so heavy that you can't hit it around easily. It's really the standard size, and you can't go wrong with it.

Of course there are other sizes as well, including the popular 100 lbs size. This is heavy duty and will provide a high amount of resistance. At the other end of the spectrum is something in the range of 40 lbs - 60 lbs. These lighter bags will have plenty of "give"- you should be able to knock them around without trying too much. This is generally preferred for cardio training but not necessarily for heavy duty boxing training.

Another difference between the available punching bags for sale that you find will be the material they are made from. Generally you will find a leather punching bag or a canvas one, or some composite of those materials. A leather punching bag is usually more popular, but there's nothing inherently wrong with one made from canvas as long as it's well built and durable.

Don't forget that some punching bags for sale come filled with sand or another material, and others need to be filled with sand or water by yourself. Many people don't realize this, and for most people the convenience of having  pre-filled bag is the best bet.

Finally, all of the major brands make their own varieties of the heavy punching bag. It's always a good idea to stick with one of the major brands - whether it's Everlast, TKO, Title or whoever else. That doesn't mean that other brands are bad, it's just that you can rest easy knowing your boxing heavy bag will be top notch when it comes from one of the recognized names.

As with most other areas of boxing training gear, your choice of punching bags for sale is all about personal preference. Pick the weight and size you want, the material and style, and choose a high quality brand and you'll end up with a punching heavy bag you'll be happy with for a very long time.
