Proper heavy bag training?

Alright, im currently trying to train in MMA, most Muay Thai. I used to box a little, but I know MMA is different. So I bought some Everlast grappling gloves, and was doing some heavy bag work. As you may know, my skin came right off my knuckles, I didnt really care much but it looks ugly lol. The reason I didnt use heavy bag gloves is because its not the same as the little gloves in competition, but I see its obvious why there called "heavy bag gloves".

Anyways my point is, does anyone else do punching bag work with grappling gloves, or does everyone do it with the big boxing gloves? Would it be an advantage using heavy bag gloves besides not messing my hands up. The reason why I did it is to make it more realistic. Anyways just drop your thoughts or tips.

If you are going to use the small gloves at least get proper bag ones.

I would recommend to go on without gloves. Your skin will look better with the time. It will harden your skin and your bones.

Grappling gloves are fine to use. I have used everlast grappling gloves before, and they are aweful unless you have your hands taped. Wrap your hands up or get some better gloves! You can get some cut finger bag gloves for $10.

I was very hesitant about them because my everlast gelwraps ripped after using them about 3 times. Maybe the everlast brand is just bad. Well atleast i dont feel stupid now i thought i was the only one who used it. But which grappling gloves do you think are real good for both heavy bag and grappling, but dont cost alot. Im thinkin in the price range of $30-$40.

I would (and do) use 16 oz boxxing gloves on a heavy bag. You can really beat the hell out of it and you'll be fast as hell when you spar / fight with the grappling gloves.

That's what works for me.

I had the same problem when I got my gloves. After a while it wil go away on its own. If you wanna help them from gettin scraped Start by taking them off and working the bag without them, I know this sounds crazy but it toughens up the skin in a hurry. Just dont punch it too fast so you can monitor the damae to your hands. If you want to toughen them up even more start punching wood boards (lightly, and with your hand and wrist in a tight postition.

You can use the grappling gloves it just takes time to condition your hands. Theheavy baag boxing gloves are good too because of their added weight, and padding. It all depends what your goals are if it is MMA use both, if it is self defence use the small glove or nothing at all.

For boxing? Work your usual punches, move to light combinations, and then start going with heavy combinations. Technique is always important but the bag is meant to improve strength, cardio and over punching power.

Proper heavy bag training?

Any Boxing gloves such as TOP TEN BOXING GLOVES with or without the AIBA approved professional boxing gloves.
As a beginner you can go with it.
