Can my 220lbs (100kg) punching bag be safely hung from my basement ceiling?

Hello!

I have a huge punching bag that weighs around 220lbs (100kg) and I'd like to hang it from my basement's concrete ceiling. Is it able to take it? I was planning on using this support: http://mlb-s2-p.mlstatic.com/suporte...4_032014-F.jpg.

Thanks a lot!

I have this same problem. I got my punching bad in an old house where it was in a concrete wall. Now there are no concrete walls available and I tried hanging it from my shed, but every hit feels like the thing's coming down on me.

The punching bag in by basement holds up just fine. It's around 55 kilos, light , beautiful and female . I use ropes to hold her

And assuming my ceiling can take it, where would be the best place to hang it? Not in the middle, correct? The way I see it, it's got less of a lever effect if I hang it in one of the corners, am I right?

Just get an architect or something and consult him.
