    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Uhhh...

    In the beginning my hands did get sore (I'm talking years ago), but eventually they stopped hurting, and my wrists got stronger and my punchs got more solid. I guess I just got used to it.

    I don't like using boxing style gloves for bag-work.

    Plus the gloves we spar with at my gym are the 7oz Combat Sports gloves. I just like using closer to what I spar and fight with for bag-work.

    Oh, and to add:

    The heavy bag I use at the gym is a six-footer and I think it weighs about 120 or so.....its also pretty hard. I'd love to get one of those big round bags for upper-cuts and body shots though. Those look like lots of fun.

    What bag are you using at home? How old are you?

    Edited to add a buncha stuff....

    You fight MMA style?

    I guess in boxing 12 rounds on the bag is a lot harder on the hands than when you mix it up with kicks and such. Similarly, and I don't mean this as an attack, we spend much more time perfecting the art of putting as much force on the bag as possible with our fist. My lower back often is sore from torqing on the bag with rotation. Also usually have some rugburn on my knuckles, and I always use mexican style wraps.

    I don't know how I came into posession of the bag I now have at home to replace the 100 pounder I beat the straps off of. This bag weighs about 40 pounds and is filled with sand, its a lot more like a sandbag from the store, when you hit it, a dent is left. I broke both the straps off this one two, had to rig it up with swing set chains and junk. Think I should find a proper bag to use in my lay-offs from the gym.


    Just out of curiosity why don't you like boxing style gloves for bagwork?


    edit: to answer your other question, I'm 25.

    Anybody find anything to reccomend gel over imf or regular padding?

    I've been looking to buy new bag gloves, my harbingers are about dead after five years. There's a couple of gel gloves from Combat Sports that look good. Is the gel worth it? Do you even notice the difference in a glove that small?

    I was thinking of one of these pairs:

    I like the gel shocks on that one. Helps absorb impact.

    edit: to answer your other question, I'm 25.
    You're my age.

    To answer:

    I don't do that many rounds on the bag. I do three to four four minure rounds. When I'm getting ready for a fight I do most of my cardio in sparring and pad-work. I use the bag on the gym days when I can't get to the school itself. I also run tread-mill sprints for cardio.

    But yes, I skin my knuckles, I don't wrap my hands usually and the skin over my knuckles has grown tougher. I don't like boxing gloves because I don't feel like I make a good fist inside them. I use them sometimes in sparring, and I'll be fighting using them in a month so will have to get used to them.

    But, this may sound stupid or corny, but I do this mostly for self-defense. So I feel like I get a more realistic idea of hitting bare-knuckle with a smaller glove. Its the reason I don't usually wrap my hands. I feel like I keep better wrist and hitting discipline when I know that I have to supply it all and not rely on a wrap or a glove for support.

    That being said, as I've gotten closer to my next fight I've wrapped my hands tight and been more careful with bag-work to avoid freak wrist injury or something.

    Also and finally, I feel like I keep better hand-disciplne with a smaller glove, I know that I have to keep my protection tighter because the people I'm fighting use the small gloves. I've noticed that when sparring with people who are used to boxing gloves that I slip a lot of punches through because they're expecting to have the added surface area of a 16 or 12oz glove. With smaller gloves you have to keep a more active guard.
