Choosing the right heavy bag for your boxing training workouts.

What should I look for in a good heavy bag? Space is defiantly an issue, so would one of those wave/free standing type bags be just as good as a hanging one. -Matt-

Matt, In my opinion you get a lot more out of a hanging bag. Leather bags are great, canvass I feel sucks for sure when its cold out and they harden. Get a soft filled so you don't bust your hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders up. Ss far as weight depending on your size get a 100lb. heavy bag so you can get some good movement with the bag allowing you to work on your footwork, punching distance, along with your punching skills. This is what the hanging heavy bag offers that the free standing doesn't and you don't need that much space to work it either.

Be sure to get some good hand wraps and gloves too.
