    Heavy bag

    I'm thinking of getting a heavy bag to help strengthen my strikes. Of course, I'm no boxer, so I have no idea what brands are the best (without breaking the bank, of course). Also, what excercises would you recommend for use with the bag?

    Don't hit it hard at first. Just about no one can punch properly the first time. I did and screwed up my wrists for a few weeks. Go slow and light first before going full power. It takes a LOT of patience and practice to get used to it. Also, make sure you train both hands. Start with jabs and straights before going for round strikes. I found round strikes much harder...

    you could make your own for a lot cheaper and more durable than most brands---especially the two worst brands: (n)everlast and (won't last 1%of a)century. I made mine out of $12 of denim and about two days work off and on. I got sawdust from lowes for free.

    as far as training is concerned, you absolutely need to wrap your wrists....besides who wants to be the dumbass who comes to work with rugburns, bruises and open sores on their hands?

    Make your own? and out of Denim no less! Also wrapping your hands is optional and seperate from wearing bag gloves.

    yeah, i double lined it and double seamed it. So far, It has lasted me a little more than a year and is still going. the real trick is the eyelets; those were hard to keep in the denim without tearing...

    The same could be said about actually punching a person as well.

    I got my everlast at Benny's. It's still intact, even w/a hole in it from a nail juting out from a dresser. has hard spots in it, which I take care of w/ a baseball bat.
