buying a punching bag, and other questions

SO tommaro i am going out to get a punching bag just for some general training. I just want to get bigger so i can hold my own in a fight and not get murked up. Im 6'1 154lbs and i was considering getting a 70lb bag but i was at the store today i was considering getting a 100lb bag. I think im just going to use hand wraps no gloves wondering what to do? also looking for some tips to gain weight.

thankss

The bigger bag the better so you can also do kicks if you need to. But also make sure you have enough room and support for the bag. If you can handle it punching with bare hands has its benefits later on but I dont like taking the time to wrap my hands. I recomend smaller gloves. If you want to get bigger lift heavy weights and intake alot of protein. But going that route will only make you slower. Also just cause your big and have a punching bag doesnt mean you can hold your own in a fight. I would loearn how to fight before worrying about being big.

If you're worried about winning a fight, train some boxing / wrestling / jujitsu at a school. Basic experience makes a huge difference. If it's about looks go to gym or buy some home weights. Get a book with a pre-designed exercise regime.

ok thanks. But i still unsure if i should get a 70 or 100 lb bag. 70lbs is availaible everywhere and cheap but 100lb bags i would have to wait about six weeks for so should i just settle for 70 lbs or would it be a waste?

You can do a lot of things with the 70 lb heavybag that you would do with a sandbag too, such as throws, get ups, carries, etc. Great for cardio, endurance, and explosiveness
