get a good pair of bag gloves cuz you're gonna **** your hands and wrists up bad if you just use wraps on a brand new heavy bag

when you buy hand wraps I recommend you get the extra long ones, i think theyre sometimes referred to as "mexican style" or something like that.

Of course you'll be able to hit harder with wraps and gloves, but your hands will get sweaty as hell, so wash those wraps once in a while, and stick a fabric softener sheet in your gloves or else they'll stank!! Maybe it's just me but I can't stand it if any of my gear smells.
