Learn More About Punching Bags

Punching Bag Uses:

Mixed martial artists need to train their whole body. Choose an extended-length training bag or training station, so you can punch, cut and kick like you would in the ring.

Punching bags can also provide an effective strength-building and cardio workout. A variety of bag routines promote faster reaction time, balance and footwork. For realistic training, incorporate a torso training bag into the mix. These life-like dummies are affixed to the top of a polyethylene base.

Types of Heavy Bags:

There are two types of MMA® heavy punching bags, hanging bags and free-standing bags:

Hanging bags are installed to the ceiling of your gym or home. These bags can be punched and kicked without dislodging or moving out of place.

Free-standing bags are attached to a base, often filled with water or sand. These bags are placed on the floor, making them an ideal choice where a bag cannot be installed to the ceiling.

Punching Bag Materials:

The filling of your bag impacts its weight, shape and stiffness. Beginners may opt for a softer bag, while experienced athletes will want a stiffer bag. Punching Bags are primarily filled with three materials:

  • Sand: Better for heavy kicking and punching. Produces less "sway," or movement, with the bag.
  • Sawdust: A lighter bag with less impact on joints.
  • Grain: Absorbs energy and produces more "sway," resulting in better feedback and movement.

There are a variety of punching bag materials and construction options. From punching bags constructed with quality vinyl or polyester to bags filled with a high-density foam padding, you can find a punching bag that best fits your training. Pro Tip: Looking for extra durability? Reinforced stitching ensures your bag handles every punch.
