Boxing bag, a question!

2 years, 11 months ago

Heya all, I got a boxing bag for Christmas. It’s 18 kgs, and shifts around with each hit. It’s currently filled with rags, or shredded bits of something.

Does anyone know how to make it heavier so it won’t move around as much? What should I replace the rags with? And if I fill it with something heavier, will the bag break?

It’s not on a chain, so it’s definitely the weight that makes it move so much…

Thanksies :D

Sure you can stuff more and more rags into it, if you poured sand in it would just inevitably sink to the bottom but just pack it tighter.

Technique counts for some as well mind :)


Be careful with what you fill it with, could jack your hands. (I like water bags with foam around the outside) Also make sure you mount it properly on a swivel and chain.

With mine i filled plastic bags with sand and then stuffed the rags around them. Make sure to get enough rags around the sand bags though or your hands will be hurting (though you could also get some gloves to counteract this).As for the weight it’s up to you. The heavier it is the less it will swing but the harder it will be to move. Mine is like 80lbs and kinda tough to move around. If it’s a good bag it should support a fair deal of weight tho. Good luck

The movement is useful. It forces you to move in response to the bag in order to deliver a good strike. The result is better coordination, more mobility, more fitness benefits, and better overall efficacy in striking.
