A Few Points to Consider When Choosing a Free Standing Heavy Bag

Heavy bags in gyms are typically hung from the ceiling. While some people can do this in their home gyms as well, often it is simply not feasible. Rather than do without a punching bag, free standing heavy bags provide the solution. When choosing a free standing bag, remember these tips:

  1. 1. The larger the bag, the greater the strike surface.
  2. 2. Freestanding bags have bases which can be filled with sand and/or water. Getting as much sand as possible into the base and then adding water will make the base as heavy as it can be. The heavier the base, the more stable the stand up bag will be.
  3. 3. The larger the trainee and the more powerful the punches, the larger and heavier the bag and stand should be.
  4. 4. Carpet or a mat underneath the free-standing bag will absorb sound from the inevitable wobble, and will also help to keep the punching bag in place.
  5. 5. All heavy bags with stands will move a bit when in use. Rather than attacking the bag from one position, the trainee should circle the bag, always forcing it back to the center. This also aids in developing good lateral movement.
  6. 6. Good standing heavy bags are produced by a number of companies. One of the best is the Everflex by Everlast. Specifically designed to minimize movement, its base can hold 220 pounds of sand and water, it adjusts to three different heights, and it has six layers of foam to protect hands.
