    Bag woork toe protection on hardwood floor

    OK here is my dilema...

    1. My heavy bag is in a wooden floored area in my gym
    2. I would rather not wear shoes when striking

    The problem is that the toe on my rear leg always gets chewed up by the floor. I pivot onto my toe as I connect with my punches, so a lot of power gets put through the floor there and I have no padding. I dont want to wear shoes because I dont want to fight with shoes

    Whenever I've torn my toes up, a combination of athletic tape (with or without gauze) has usually helped me out. Whenever you're taping something like that, more small strips of tape are better than a lesser number of larger strips.

    Well realistically if you're going to ever have to kick someone, outside of MMA, you'll be wearing shoes. But I wear wrestling shoes mainly because the floor in my basement needs to be cleaned.

    Tape the toe, many people do this, not a big issue.

    Don't be such a *****! Some callus material will make chicks dig you.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    Buy jigsaw mats, either at your local sporting goods store or the internet. Place recently purchased jigsaw mats under and around said heavy bag. I was going to use the Step1 blah, profit thing but it's just not funny anymore. And when I say anymore I mean since the underwear gnomes did it.

    tape, or just build up calluses. I never had a problem with bag work on hardwood, but then again I've also got big fat calluses on the bottoms of my feet.

    It never seemed to have helped Cracky -- unless you count Sirc. <ba-DUM=tiss!>

    Ummm, socks?

    Personally, I went with jigsaw foamy things; basement floor is cold and nasty.
