You cannot do regular training in all punching techniques without a good punching bag or boxing pear. Regardless of whether you want to train classic boxing, Thai boxing or piloxing, want to get into better shape or simply burn off that excess energy, a decent punching bag is a must. We offer various lengths, sizes and designs of a punching bag, including other essential accessories, such as punching bag hangers, boxing gloves and wraps.
The choice of the ideal punching bag should be based on several main factors – from the first decision about the type of punching bag, through its size and weight, to the material. If you’re not limited in terms of space, it is definitely better to go for a classic hanging punching bag. These are suitable for beginners as well as experienced boxers. They enable you to perfect your speed and power and can also be used to train footwork techniques.
Free-standing punching bags are the ideal choice for anyone who needs to save on space. The unquestionable advantage of these bags is that they can be moved around. These bags have a hollow compartment inside, which is filled with sand or water to give the necessary stability. Alternatives include punching bags on a stand or boxing mannequins, which are suitable for training more precise punches.
If you want to work mainly on your fitness, dynamics or eye coordination and train your reflexes, the best choice is a boxing pear. Pears are oval in shape, tapering at the top, and generally have an airbag inside them.
The golden rule for choosing the right weight is that the punching bag should be approximately 50 % of your body weight. This means that a boxer weighing in at 80 kilograms should use a 40-kilogram punching bag. More experienced boxers can manage with a bag weighing as much as 80 % of their body weight. Complete beginners, on the other hand, are recommended not to use a punching bag weighing more than 35 kilograms.
When training, are you planning to perfect just your boxing technique or do you also want to practise kicks? This decision should then serve as the basis for choosing the size of your punching bag. For training boxing skills you can get by with a bag between 80 and 120 centimeters in size. If you plan to train kicks, we recommend getting a punching bag bigger than 150 centimeters (up to 220 cm in size)
The materials most commonly used to make punching bags are leather, synthetic leather and hardened vinyl. The quality of the material is a major factor in how long bags last for. They are generally filled with shredded textile, which places less strain on the joints. The choice of material is entirely up to you.
