    Punching Bag made of Car Tires

    Hi Everyone,

    This is my first post and i'd like to start off asking for your opinions, for a Boxing/Muay Thai training method of punching tires.
    Basically these tires are hung from the ceiling ala heavy bag, except with three tires attached to eachother. It is much heavier and tougher than punching a normal heavy bag, and is supposedly more effective at increasing power.

    Have any of you used this training method to increase punching power? Does it work? I know some K-1 fighters train with this.

    Sounds like a great way to tear up your skin to me.

    That just sounds like it would get my hands all dirty. EEEWww!

    Seriously though, are the tires stacked vertical (like they would be on a car) or stacked up horizonal (flat on their sides)? Are you supposed to wear bag gloves while punching? Boxing gloves? Can you kick them without tearing up your shins?

    The rubber that is the tire will probably rip something, most likely your skin.

    It might be "more effective" than a heavy bag, but I would assume that your not at a hardcore enough stage to even consider more harsh alternative ways to train. Just stick with a heavy bag before you hurt yourself.

    It's like the kids who just started Muay Thai, yes I know they use to kick banana trees over in Thailand but don't do it.

    The rubber wont hurt your skin. Wear gloves, morons.

    Yeah, I've seen it around in Thailand. I don't like it personally.

    The tyres are stacked one on the other and held up by ropes.

    I don't get why to do it. Just get a heavier bag? When you hit something, energy is created in the strike, that energy has to be released somewhere, and it will look for the weakest point to release through. So, if the target is more solid than yourself (think punching a brick wall) the energy will not go into the target, yet will instead will exit through weak points in your own body; easy way to damage or break joints.

    Thus, a bag is probably a safer option, as it is easy to transfer punch power into the bag safely. If you want power, get a heavier bag and train more...

    How hard is it to figure out? The tyres are laid flat, one on top of the other. About 5 of them. Then strung up like a boxing bag. Geez...

    Oh. I never seen anyone kicking it. No. I always thought it was just for punching.

    Well i assumed you kick it as well since you are training muay thai, if you cant kick the tyres but dont have a heavy bag, then what are you suppose to kick? I don't see how a tyre setup is more effectiev than a bag setup if you can't kick it.

    And for the alternative if your been sarcastic: You can't wear gloves on your shins.
