    Punching bag question

    Hey guys,I'm not really a boxer but I love boxing in place for a workout.I recently bought one and hung it up in the garage.

    My question is,do you guys think it'll be ok hanging from the garage ceiling?I kind of wanted to buy a stand but didn't want to throw another hundred bucks on top of what we paid.I figure someone here can give me some info.

    It's a 70 pound Everlast.Just hung it up like,3 hours ago and it seems fine and solid,I'm just a lil timid to go out and have at it.Used a stud finder to make sure we nailed the bitch.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    I kindof had the same problem when I bought my heavy bag. I hung it up with one of the screw/hook things that are usually used to hold a pot and plant, but the screw broke within a few days. If you are worried about one of the trusses breaking, that shouldn't be an issue, but finding something to screw through the drywall into a stud/truss and is sturdy enough to handle the hard hits are delivered to the punching bag will be the problem from my personnel experience.

    I just ended up having to buy a lighter bag, because my first bag was too heavy.

    If you have it from a truss in the ceiling via a chain or rope it will be fine. If you're paranoid just don't knee it from underneath so the rope/chain goes slack then drops with force. Other than that its fine.

    According to a BMA study around 82% of men who took part in the vicious fights were gay before they started and another 12% became gay during their first fight.

    The remaining 6% took part in cage fighting because they wanted to beat up gay men.

    70 pounds is heavy man.. make sure you wrap your hands properly before you rape it.
    I broke my hands nicely hitting a 45 pound bag.

    Thanks for the advice.I have the gloves that came with it.It came with hand wraps but it seems like a hassle to do all that when I'm not really Tyson with power uknow?

    Another question though.How do you wash the gloves?I would think I could put them in the washer but it seems like that will fuck them up.Just asking some folks that have experience.

    Gloves alone wont protect your hands MG. You really have to wear wrappings before you wear your bag hitting gloves. Without wrappings your gonna break your wrist sooner or later.

    Once you injure your wrist its gonna take more than 3 months to heal it, just keep that in mind. Because there's little blood flow in the wrist area.

    Good move deciding to use hand wraps. I don't wash my gloves I just let them dry naturally and air out.


    Thanks Bob (my father)
