Different Types of Punching Bags
There are many types of punching bags available on the market. Boxing bags traditionally haven't changed over the years. The heavy bag is the oldest form of punching bag that dates back into the 1800's. We are going to be addressing a few forms of punching bags in the post. Be sure to check out the video of it in action below.
Heavy Bag - Perfect boxing tool to work your power and conditioning. The heavy bag is an absolute must in any boxing training program. In the video we demonstrate the hanging heavy bag. However, there are also heavy bags that have a heavy base. I recommend the swinging bag since it does simulate an actual opponent.
Double-End Bag - This bag is amazing for working punches and defense at the same time. Great way to work on your timing and rhythm. Definitely takes time getting used to, but once you master it you look really cool in the gym.
Tear Drop Water Bag - A newer form of punching bag. This bag is filled with water and has a design that makes it really easy to throw uppercuts. Hooks are also great to use on this as well depending on the size of the bag that you get. In the video we are using a 60lb. bag. Highly recommend water if you are looking for something that is a little more friendly on your joints.
Quiet Punch Bag - Our very own bag gets put to the test. An ideal solution if you are limited on space and are not fortunate enough to have the space for a home gym. Really like the feel of the Quiet Punch and the ability for it to work your timing, rhythm, power, and also be easy on your joints.
