    Obviously this may not be ideal if you have back problems, but if you can, you'd be doing a bit of sandbag-like training before and after your bag work.

    There is also consideration to the weather. If you live in a humid/putrid always fucking raining place, that's bad. But if you live in a dry area, you can leave the bag outdoors for days. Sunlight will have an effect on the leather or vinyl, but you can always cover the fucker with duct tape.

    Emevas beat me to it.
    Thanks, Macho.

    With my neck at the moment, I can't really carry it in and out. It'd have to be put up once, and then left there.

    It's not humid, so perhaps I can find a cheap one, and just leave it to slowly die outside (with help from my powerful man-kicks).

    Unfortunately, the only tree big enough is now falling to pieces. And, as I said above, I can't carry it in and out (not at the moment, anyway).

    The tarp's not such a bad idea. Perhaps I could rig up something to cover our wilting vegies at the same time.

    Melbourne: Buying a based heavy bag - this seems right up your street. Almost literally.

    Heavy bag - does what it says on the tin.

    Heavy Bag Alternatives - some alternatives to putting up a heavy bag, including ideas like hanging sandbags.

    wearing in a new heavy bag - some issues when wearing in new heavy bags. You're probably already familiar with this stuff, but just in case anyone else finds it useful.

    Heavy Bag? - seems to be fairly basic stuff, but hey. *shrug*

    Heavy bag - again, someone looking for basic info on heavy bags and what to do with them.

    Temp. heavy bag replacement - again, some ideas for what to use in lieu of a heavy bag.

    Heavy bags - again, basic thread. (You may be noticing a pattern by now.)

    Anyway, that's what I've managed to glean from a fairly quick search. Forum - Old BS; search term - "heavy bag".
    Hmmm. Did you use quotes around your search terms? When I put in kick bag, it just ignored 'bag'.

    Thanks, by the way.

    No probs. And yeah, I tend by habit to use quotes when I'm searching for a phrase. I find it helpful no matter which engine you use - you also eliminate instances of words coming up seperately. Narrowing it to specific forums helps, too.

    Yes, it's my habit also. But I broke it quite specifically on Bullshido - I thought it didn't allow quotes.

    Consider me now enlightened.

    I'll have to see if I can post pics of my friend's training mannequin - he has some old clothing stuffed and hung up so that he has a body to aim at.

    No. But I want to see if getting one's even a possibility.

    At the very least I can kick - and the makiwara isn't really built for it.

    Why do you ask?

    Century Wavemaster sucks. Eventually it will break. the foam separates from the plastic, the plastic is flimsly anyway, it stops being adjustable.

    Maybe you can somehow affix a heavy bag to a fence post? Obviously without the fencing and such, just a pole in the ground, anchored with cement, and shove a heavy bag over it.
