I'm not sure what Kanto is talking about with opponent weights but 100lbs is fine. Just remember for shin conditioning kick as close to the bottom of the bag as you can. Tigerbalm helps when you're starting out.




tip: I mark on my heavy bags with duct tape where the liver, chin, and sciatic nerve would be - assuming the person is average height of 5'9"-10".

Well at least you got everything down correctly. Labelling everything might also help out. That way you have a target to aim for!

That's where anatomical BOBs also come in handy. Even more as you can train angles better.
