Buying the right Glove
At Punch Equipment, we can help you choose the right glove for your needs, whether you’re a personal trainer or just boxing for fitness. Our boxing gloves cater to men, women, kids, beginners, kickboxing, bag work training and more!
What are the best gloves for sparring?
Firstly, you have gloves for just basic training and fitness. These are usually bag gloves or training gloves. These are designed for beginners that train once or twice a week. They won’t need an expensive glove and the type of glove will depend on the type of training. Next, you have more advanced gloves for hitting punching bags and sparring. These need to provide excellent protection of your hands during this type of training. So you’ll be looking at a mid-priced glove and it will need a decent amount of padding. For sparring, we always recommend 14oz and up as the best weight. Then we go to fighting gloves. These can be lace-ups if preferred or just normal gloves. A fighting glove will usually come in a lighter weight, such as 8oz or 10oz. Lastly, you have professional boxing gloves. These come at a premium price but are well worth the price tag. They’re designed for heavy hitters and will need to be well designed for training multiple times per week.
What oz gloves do I need?
Our boxing gloves come in a variety of different weight sizes. A rule of thumb is the heavier the glove, the harder the workout will be:
- 6/8 oz gloves: Suitable for a very light cardio workout.
- 10 oz gloves: Suitable for a light cardio workout
- 12 oz gloves: Suitable for a medium cardio workout
- 14 oz gloves: Suitable for a medium to intense cardio workout – beware as muscle development may occur.
- 16 oz gloves: 16 oz gloves are great for sparring and give the best cardio workout.
