got a few questions concerning a boxing bag

alright i got a 20kg boxing bag about a month ago it's fairly soft so i can punch it and kick it. it came with a shitty pair of gloves that were like oven mits pretty much so used them for awhile. I went out and bought some 16 oz boxing gloves today and tried them out when I got home. after awhile ive punching with them my fingers started to hurt a bit like aching is this because i'm not yet used to the gloves or because i punched without handwraps (yet to buy some).

also my bag is outside and cause i like to kick it aswell i dont wear any shoes and after awhile feet start getting a tad sore so if i wear shoes would that ruin the bag? or should i should i just do it bare foot for now and save up for instep pads or w/e there called?

firstly, yes buy hand wraps, you dont want to damage your fingers, or wrists badly.

Secondly with regard the kicks try bandaging or taping your feet and ankles for support.

thats what ild do anyway,

Happy Training
