Setting Up a Boxing Bag
Free Standing vs Traditional Boxing Bag
The first decision you’ll need to make is choosing between a free standing boxing bag or a traditional bag.
The benefit of a free standing bag is the ability to place a boxing training anywhere in your home, backyard or garage.
The major difference between the two is the fact that a free standing bag can be placed anywhere where there’s room.
Whereas, a traditional bag will require a stand or bracket installation, which can be impossible in a rented house. Although, the heavy bag is more suitable for heavy hitters and Kickboxing training at home.
