With such a wide variety of punch bags available on the market, it is sometimes difficult to decide which type would be best for you. Punch bags can vary greatly in weight, height, quality, and many other factors. One of the most popular types is the ‘Heavy punch bag’.You can complete your home workout (which is known as “Completa il tuo allenamento a casa” in Dutch) with the help of good punching bags.
This can be used from Boxing (pugilism) t o kickboxing, martial arts, general fitness, and more. This article focuses in more detail on the heavy punch bag, its features, uses, and benefits.
One of the major benefits of a heavy punch bag is its ability to remain stable under sustained punches and kicks. The last thing you want when giving a punching bag your best shot is for it to swing too far out of the way or become unstable and start spinning wildly.
This becomes more important the more you train as your power, accuracy, and skill will improve. A lot of people have to migrate from lighter punch bags for just this reason. Lighter punch bags will often deflect too much and can throw you off your stride. If you are trying to practice set-pieces, punching flurries, uppercuts, jabs, and kicks you need your opponent to remain as stable as possible.
Heavy punching bags come in different weights. Deciding which weight is best for you will depend on your size and level of skill. If you are a hard hitter, you will be well advised to aim for a 60lb to 70lb bag. This will provide sufficient weight to oppose some of your best shots.
If you are a particularly hard hitter, you are going to need something a bit more substantial and you should go for a bag in the region of 100lbs.
