Punching Bag Stand: Your Essential Guide To The Boxing Cornerstone

Throughout my 15+ years of experience as a martial artist, I’ve noticed that heavy bags are less important than punching bag stands. In MMA, you can train ground-and-pounding with a heavy bag, there is no need to set it up on the wall. But stand-up martial arts are different – a bad setup means you’ll have to stop your training session. A good punching bag stand is a very important part of your boxing game.

Even the best boxing gloves in the world are useless when you forget to purchase a high-quality punching bag stand for your home gym. This article will get to know you about various types of punching bag stands and their role in pushing your boxing, elbowing, and kicking game to the next level.

Punching Bag Stand: The Backbone Of Your Training

There are two major groups of punching bag stands – freestanding bag stand and wall-mounted punching bag stand.

Do you travel a lot, drive a van or truck, or plan to save some space in your home? Number one is your choice.

On the other hand, a wall-mounting product gets the job done in the silence of your home, away from the public eye. Just find a perfect spot, drill holes, add a few screws and you’re ready to go. I would also recommend you find the bolts strong enough to mount the stand and deal with enormous shock absorption.

Another criterion is the single-station and multi-station punching bag stand. Multi-station costs more, but you can install both a speed bag and a heavy bag. It gives you the ability to work on multiple aspects of your game.

Here are the most important benefits of punching bag stands:

  • Boosts your striking skills.
  • Helps you work on specific aspects of your game.
  • Saves space in your home gym.
  • Gives you the ability to train anywhere.
  • Helps you become more technical.
  • Buy a multi-station piece of equipment and you’ll be able to combine your training sessions.

Speed Bag Platform: The Fast Track To Precision

A speed bag platform serves to hang speed bags. Overall, there are three types of speed bag platforms – wall-mounted (very easy to install, my favorite), ceiling-mounted, and double-end bag platform (it is installed both up and down).

You can also divide them into a wooden-made and a steel-made speed bag platform. The model constructed of wood is easier to install and the price is ok but it is not durable.

Steel models are known for excellent durability, but installation is a bit more tricky. Yes, you’ll have to pay more, but a steel object gets a better rating due to enhanced durability and safety.

Some punching bag stands have special stations for speed bags, others don’t. But you can always buy a separate speed bag platform. The only downside is the price – you’ll need more money though.

Bag Stand: A Versatile Solution For Every Punching Bag

A bag stand is a very versatile solution for those who plan to train outside or save some space inside their home. Carrying a heavy bag hanger and installing it would take too much time and stress, a simple bag stand is easy to transport and move.

The majority of models are not compatible with speed bags but you can always add chains or go to your handyman for additional installation. For example, Everlast 2 Station has a separate speed bag hanger.

Regular bag stand is mostly compatible with all kinds of heavy bags, teardrops, and uppercut bags. Double end bag is a whole different type, it demands special installation – it is mostly a problem for an unskillful fan of boxing or MMA. Please read the manual, all compatibility details should be included.

Speed Bag: The Ultimate Tool For Speed And Coordination

A speed bag helps you to improve your hand-eye coordination and reaction time. In some cases, speed bag workouts can boost your anaerobic endurance, counterstrikes, and quickness. Advanced fighters can move sideways, even land elbows and spinning strikes and create all kinds of workouts.

Speed bag sessions will also help your overall performance grow through effective workouts and adding some much-needed variety into your routine. If you’re just training for fun, these great sessions are the easiest way to improve your cardiovascular health – you’ll stay fit even in the later stages of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions about Punching Bag Stand

Does a heavy bag stand work?

Yes, it saves space and there is no need to install a heavy bag on the ceiling, wall, or other hard-to-access areas. It is a great option for every martial artist who plans to push his striking game to the next level and has more space in his home.

It depends on what you’re trying to achieve. A freestanding bag stand works better for fighters who like to control the central line and trade toe-to-toe shots, while a hanging heavy bag gets the job done for boxers who plan to improve movement, footwork, and angling.

Yes, but heavy bags are predominantly designed to build hitting power and hardiness. You can’t look like Arnold Schwarzenegger after hitting a bag. If that’s your goal, browse the internet for bodybuilding programs and start visiting a local gym.

No, heavy bags must sway. If a heavy bag touches the floor, it has the same effect as a freestanding bag. A heavy bag that doesn’t touch the canvas is the perfect choice.

Yes, a good punching bag stand is a must. Unless you training ground-and-pound in MMA, you should put your sand bags or other pieces of training equipment on a hanger to maximize your performance.

Again, it depends on your goals. Read the manual, every model tolerates a specific weight. I have never mounted a bag heavier than 200 lbs, but your best option relies on your goals. Additional weight to your punching bag stand is fine as long as you follow the instructions. Ask yourself a question – which parameter would I like to improve?

It works way better for technical training sessions but you will not fight a sitting duck – the real opponent will move and there is a risk of counter-shots. A good combination of freestanding and hanging gets the job done. For example, a double end bag is somewhere in between, and it is a very nice solution for quick strikers and point collectors.

Yes, especially if you hit them very hard. Back in the days when I trained in Taekwondo, Century Bob was falling every single time it got hit with a powerful flying sidekick. It can be pretty irritant.
