    And would using a 14OZ be better for my knuckels then the punchbag mitts?

    I'm not a big fan of pre-made undergloves. I like to manually apply my wraps, for two reasons:

    1. Fexibility in choosing where you want support
    2. I feel badass when wrapping

    Your hand support should fit tightly and make it a little more difficult to bend your wrist (so that you don't pretzel it when crushing someone's cranium), and your fingers should naturally rest in a very loose fist. It should just tighten everything down.

    As far as gloves on the bag, I like to alternate. Punching with the light bag gloves lets you work on form, as it's easier to notice fucking up. I also like to occasionally go to the bag with 14oz., so that I can go balls out when I don't have a partner and get the feel of the extra weight.

    If your knuckles are still hurting, I would use the thicker glove, so as to not stess the injury more. It would probably be more beneficial to relax your hands a bit and instead work on your shadowboxing, form, or cardio.

    Which kind of hook do you throw? Palm facing you or palm down?

    Also, is the pain deep or on the skin? Is it dead center where the ligament is or a little off to the side? Are you seeing any abrasions?

    I throw my hooks palm facing me and the pain comes right in the middle of the knuckel but nothing is seen from the outside, it only hurts when i message it.

    If you can still punch hard and not have it hurt immediately it's probably what the others said above: technique/wrapping.

    I had my middle nuckle hurt and it turned out that i'd ripped the tube thing that holds the tendon in place, took me 6 weeks to get it properly diagnosed by a specialist, 4 months recovery time and 7,000 dollars after health insurance for the surgery. Hope it isn't this bad for you.

    Lastly....let your current bruise heal....I know that it's a drag not hitting the bag...but you'll just create a chronic knuckle problem, if you don't let it heal COMPLETELY !!! :-)

    I have had the same problem with my knuckles hurting to the point where slightly tapping them hurt so bad. I started out with Everlast gloves and all was well. As I started to progress in my Muay Thai, I upgraded my gloves to Fairtex Super Sparring Gloves. Although there was better all around protection, the padding that protects the knuckles was extremely solid and hurt so bad. I have been trying to break them in, but no luck. They are slowly breaking in after about 3 months, but still hurt. What I came up with is: I went to the drugstore and went to the woman's cosmetic section. I picked up "Makeup Eye Rounds". They are round sponges that come 4 to a pack and they are connected. I fold it in half and wrap it in with my hand wraps. Makes all the difference in the world. I hope this helps.

    Hey man , I have to agree with most here that you may want to check your wrapping. Sometimes I see guys in class put a few layers of guaze under their wraps and then wrap them. Also I think that you should maybe get the 14 OZ or better yet the 16 OZ.

    Do you have pain when you hit the focus mitts?

    Hey, I’m a physician, so listen. Humans weren't made to hit things with the little joints of their hands. You probably overworked the tendons and ligaments holding everything together and just need to let it completely rest for about 3-4 weeks. That means no hitting... anything. Your tendons and ligaments and bones are very plastic, in that they can remodel to a denser state that can withstand much more force than the untrained hand, but that process is very gradual and takes a lot of time. If you initially went into boxing too aggressively, you could have caused some micro tears that were never allowed to heal, conversely, you could have also rested too long between training sessions and that allowed your hands to remodel to the baseline weak ***** hands of the normal individual. My advice is to let this injury heal COMPLETELY, then start back slow and slowly ramp up the intensity over several months. The type of gloves and wrapping is fucking retarded and doesn't matter, you just have to let your body change and harden on its own terms. And by the way, there is virtually no limit to how hard you can condition your hands to be as long as you go slowly, but the harder they get, the less mobility you will have with fine motor actions of your fingers like playing the piano (if you’re a fag). Additionally, conditioning your knuckles is actually protective from developing osteoarthritis in the joints, which is counterintuitive but true.
