The benefits of punch bag training

Punch bags are a really effective piece of equipment to invest in, whether you're a club or for your home gym. With so many different things to achieve from using a punch bag, you can improve your boxing game and use these skills to gain an advantage in the ring.

Punch bags are a central piece of training equipment found across the world in boxing gyms, punch bags aren’t just vital to boxing; they’re also great for general fitness. They can be used in high intensity, calorie-burning workouts which incinerate fat while building muscle.

The motions involved in a punch-bag workout affect the core as well as the upper body and legs, it’s no wonder that boxing workouts are incorporated in many training regimes across sports other than boxing itself.

Punch bags come in two formats, either hanging or free-standing. Each is designed with the same simple principle in mind; to be punched, kicked and struck. Free-standing bags are great for when it’s hard to hang a bag, which is quite a common circumstance, but for hardcore professional or full-frontal use, hanging a bag is always the preferred method.

Punch bags, depending on your choice, are great for:

  • Cardio training
  • Building up stamina
  • Hand coordination
  • Improving speed
  • Improving movement and footwork

Which punch bag do you need?

Punch bags are simple in principle. They’re weighty bags designed for striking with fists and elbows and feet in the case of MMA and kickboxing. They’re designed to be at least as heavy as an average person but may easily weigh more, up to 120 kg or so.

A heavyweight boxer would demolish a light punching bag, the stronger the hitter and the longer the training, the bigger bag he or she will need. Large pro jumbo bags are extremely durable and come with relatively hard padding, soft padding absorbs too much impact which reduces the capacity for strengthening and conditioning the wrists, arms and upper body. It’s vital to protect the wrist when training with a punch bag so always strap the wrist and wear densely padded gloves.

A quality heavy punch bag exerts extreme force on the wall or ceiling to which it’s mounted. It’s crucially important to assess the wall for its strength and integrity; an 80kg to 120kg bag exerts force in itself but once it’s swinging from heavy punches, the strain on your average wall is considerable. Check walls thoroughly and ask builder or DIY expert for advice. When mounting a punch bag, always use appropriate brackets, taking careful consideration to check what weight the bracket can accept and follow the directions carefully for what bolts & screws are to be used for your wall or ceiling material.

There are a few different types of punch bags that you can choose from depending on what you are looking to achieve:

  • Heavy duty/jumbo bags
  • Uppercut bags
  • Speedballs
  • Maize balls
  • Wall units
  • Freestanding bags
  • Aqua Bags

Heavy duty or jumbo bags are used to improve strength training and to improve your punches, whereas uppercut bags are shaped to allow for better hooks and uppercut shots. All punch bags are mainly designed for practicing your combination punches to transfer into the ring.

Speedballs are used to help with hand-eye coordination and are ideal for beginners to gain a new skill, but are also recommended for intermediate boxers and above to improve this skill.

For working on head movement and uppercuts, maize balls and maize bags are a good choice. Maize balls are smaller (head size) but are perfect for head movement shots and maize bags are great for hooks and uppercuts and both are great if you don’t have much space but still want to train at home. A recent edition in the last few years is the Aqua or Water maize bag. They are easy to install as long as you can run a hose pipe to the room they are to be positioned in but please note that if you cannot run a hose in, an 18” or 21” aqua bag will weigh 50 kgs upwards, so you will need assistance when installing one.

Then for all round workouts freestanding bags can be used by beginners and professionals alike. They are great for people who also want to train at home but don't have the hanging facility, as they don’t require hooks or brackets because of there stable wide base design.

Which material should you choose?

At Boxfit UK, not only do we offer different types of punch bags, but also different materials of the bags, meaning you are able to get what suits you and your budget, whether it be Full Grain Leather or PU Synthetic Leather. Full Grain Leather is very durable and also the most expensive option, whereas PU Synthetic Leather are more affordable and the more modern Synthetic materials are very good and a great choice if you are choosing a punching bag for home use.

For more information on the types of punch bags that you can get and what you can use them for, check out our blog. Or why not check out our ultimate punching bag workout for more information on how to get the most out of your punch bag?

How to care for your punch bag

Punch bags are, by definition, extremely durable. Even the strongest boxers would have a hard time inflicting any damage on a heavy punch bag. Smaller punch bags are less durable and you should check for wear every now and again. To clean, wipe a bit of detergent on a damp cloth and apply to the material. Do this when you can after use, especially if the punch bag has become sweaty. Full Grain Leather bag can be re-waxed once a month to keep the leather from drying out.
