    Buying a heavy bag...advice needed

    I'm going to buy a heavy bag for my workout room at home. I have limited boxing training and only really worked out on the bags at the gym I used to belong to. I have no idea how much they weighed. Do I need a 200 pound bag, or is or is a 50 pound bag sufficient?

    If it matters I'm 6ft, 200 lbs and a fairly heavy hitter.

    A 50 lb bag will fly all over the place... you need something heavier.
    Probably at least 100 lbs.

    Too heavy and you run the risk of feeling like you're punching a wall, though.

    That's what I was thinking. I just don't know how heavy is heavy enough.

    100lbs bag is fine. You're not that big.

    Either an 100 lbs Thai bag or banana bag, or an 200 lbs pole bag from Fairtex, that is if money is no issue. They get pricy at Fairtex.

    It's just another name for a 6ft Thai bag. That is what there actually caled, but in recent years people have refered to them as Thai bags, because they are a fixiation in all Muay Thai gyms. They are really great for home use I have and MT bag and a boxing bag, and the MT is tall enough to hang yet still drag the floor a tad so it doesnt swing around erratically, unlike the boxing bag that constantly has to be stopped from swiningg, but offers more realistic movment. I recomend using them both for there particular uses to hone those specific skills. If you dont mind switching them out for your workouts. Or even have them both haning. Now if I had the money I would have gotten the Pole bag it is huge 7 ft tall and is stationary, great for working your power and punch/kick combonations.
