    If you are bareknuckled, you shouldn't be hitting anything full power with a closed fist.


    unless it is hammer time!

    Train bare knuckeled and you will be more safe if you fight that way. Train with gloves and you will have more power if you fight that way. Most people train with gloves and that's why they tend to injure themselves when they go at it without.

    if you hit a bag with bag gloves you can feel exactly how your hands are connecting without skinning your knuckles and safely use full power.

    training bare knuckled is fucking retarded.

    Or run like a barefoot runner, with a “toe-first” stride where the impact is on the ball of the foot and the energy is absorbed by the muscles and tendons of the foot rather than jolting up to your knee. See Nature.

    Yeah, I’m trying to be more “barefoot-like” myself (for various reasons), wearing extremely thin-soled shoes and so on. It’s an interesting experience; for the first couple of months my feet hurt because they were just too weak and not used to having to absorb energy. I feel like I’m finally starting to catch up, a little bit, and whether it’s causally related or not, I’m not having as much low-back pain as I am otherwise prone to (mild scoliosis+hyperlordosis+flat feet FTW).

    I don’t really run, though. I expect that would be an even steeper learning curve. But some people do seem to swear by it…

    If you do a serious heavy bag workout without gloves at full power and intensity and your hands are totally fine, you're probably doing something wrong.

    RE skinning the knuckles- I hit my heavy bag without gloves sometimes, and if you do it right you shouldn't be losing skin. A correct punch shouldn't graze the bag, and that's what will skin your knuckles. Your fist should be hitting roughly perpendicular to the bag and the force should go through your forearm, not across the skin of your knuckles.
