You should choose a punch bag based on the kind of boxing you do and how often you train.

There are two criteria to consider: size and material.

SIZE

The type of boxing will determine the size of your punch bag (from 80 cm to 120 cm).

● For punching only, choose a punch bag measuring 80 to 110 cm.

● For punching and kicking, choose a bag that is longer than 120 cm.

FABRIC

If you are a novice boxer and train only occasionally, choose a fabric bag that will be supple when struck.

If you are an advanced boxer and train more regularly (twice weekly), opt for a bag with a synthetic outer, such as in polyurethane that is stiff and very durable.

If you are an expert boxer or compete and train intensively (three or more times weekly), choose a sturdy bag in genuine leather that will withstand abrasion and punching.

Never punch your bag with bare hands as you may injure yourself. Always wear gloves during training sessions
