have and you need a bag that can stand up to all you've got.
This bag is thick so you can strike and whack and it keeps coming back. It
will not give in before you do. It can handle the most intense work

six foot long, this bad bag has a large surface which is excellent for
strikes and kicks. Twenty-two ounces of triple stitched vinyl nylon
makes it quite durable. In fact, it is the most durable bag available.
Being vinyl, it is much less expensive than leather.

made in the USA and weighs about 125 unfilled and around 8 pounds

reputable company that provides quality MMA products. It is a company I
am comfortable to represent and recommend as I have always been happy

durable bag that offers a large surface and will take all you can dish

Guys in the ring who are lightweight have about 8% body fat. This is
how they move so fast, and what makes them like lightening. Getting
lean is important to get you as fast as you can and be your best in your
Wrap your hands when working on heavy punching bags, wear
gloves, or both.
To keep from getting bloody knuckles, apply wraps to your
knuckles and wrists. Wraps are designed to provide support for
your entire hand and wrist area.
Though at this time you're probably not thinking about
this, it protects your future. They also absorb impact which can
help you avoid injuries now and can aid in preventing
osteoarthritis later on.
Gloves protect your hands and when working with the heavy
If you are a beginner and just wanting to get used to the bag
or just wanting to perfect your technique, a lighter glove, such
as a 10 oz, will be great.
If you are more experienced, however, you will benefit more
from a heavier glove. For

2. Warming up is just plain smart. Even the pros warm up
before training and certainly before a match.
Whether you choose stretching, shadow boxing or another form
of warming up, just be sure you do so to help avoid injuries and
to reach your optimal workout with the bag.
Warm up on the bag too. Simply circle the bag, throwing light
punches, concentrating on great technique. Two or three minutes
of this not only helps ensure your form and technique, it will
help you prevent hitting the bag too hard and incorrectly which
can cause injury.
3. Form matters
Even after you have warmed up and your workout begins,
continue to practice proper technique.
You may be tempted to hit the bag hard rather than to improve
your form but that is a mistake. Properly hitting the bag will
get you much better results.
4. Throw your punches from a fighting stance just as
you do in a real fight so you keep your techniques and
fundamental precepts consistent.
Failure to do so will make you tired and your punches
5. It is important to practice your distancing when hitting
Use a near full extension in order to exert the most force on
the bag. If you stand too close, you not get the maximal results
and if you stand too far away, you will only get minimal
6. Breath Properly
One very important, but often overlooked, thing to consider is
your breathing while training with the bag.
Exhaling as you throw a punch will help ensure a continual
supply of oxygen which will, in turn, feed the muscles. Failure
to do so can deplete the body of oxygen and cause thoracic
pressure which can result in injury.
Not only will exhaling upon throwing a punch help you avoid
complications of thoracic pressure, it will increase your power
Taking good care of yourself is of utmost importance if you
want to get the most out of training on the heavy bag.
You will need to pay strict attention to your diet. Input
equals output so you will not be effective if you are not getting
the nourishment you need.
Follow up after the workout with a balance of carbs and
protein. You do not need fat directly after a workout.
Working out will take a toll on your body so remember to drink
plenty of liquids and get enough rest as well.

THE CORNERMAN IS IN YOUR CORNER
The Cornerman is a heavy bag stand that is truly in your corner, a corner man (so to speak) for your MMA training!
To understand the role the Cornerman plays, you must first understand what the term
means in Mixed Martial Arts and other contact sports. A cornerman is a coach, team mate or other helper
assisting a fighter during the duration of a fight. He stays outside the combat area
during the fight, but is there to help the fighter from "the corner".
Recently at UFC on FOX 5 on December 9, Nate Diaz's brother, Nick,
a former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion, WEC and IFC Welterweight Champion, was
his cornerman. Also assisting was two other accomplished fighters, Gilbert Melendez and Richard Perez.
Last but not least, Nate's coach, the renown Cesar Gracie was in is corner as well. Talk about some
This heavy bag stand was named such for good reason. It is an assist to your workout and
will help you win the game for the fact is...if your heavy bag doesn't hang right, your training is
of no use.
Purchasing a heavy bag and bringing it to the gym for or to your home is not enough. You need to
hang the bag.
More specifically, you need to hang it right, in such a way that you can
get the most out of it.
Hanging a heavy bag the old fashioned way can cause lots of problems. It can damage
property and put holes in the wall or ceiling.
In the past there was really no viable option, even Muhammad Ali had to contend with
hanging a bag and hoping it didn't give when he packed in the punches.
No Ceiling Damage
is optimal to hang the bag in such a way that it does not
damage your ceiling. For those looking to hit points effectively,
purchasing a bag for the corner would be a wise move.
The Cornerman is a hanging apparatus that does not involve fastening any holders into the
wall or the ceiling. That is great news for apartment dwellers, renters and even home owners
who don't care to have gaping holes to deal with.
That means you can avoid damaging the structure of the interior while,
at the same time, having a secured heavy bag that can maintain a great
deal of impact training. This can be achieved without undermining the
integrity of the bag.
How Hard Can You Hit It?
you would not want a bag fastened in such a way it cannot be used
properly. By using the bag holder, such problems are eliminating and
you can still have an excellent heavy bag workout in the process.
means you can hit the bag as hard as possible and not have to worry
about the base of the device moving or taking away from the workout in any
While sometimes overlooked, one of the best benefits to using this stand is the fact that the
device can be assembled anywhere and easily too!

in the ceiling so you are not limited to where you can place it.
opens the door for many people to own their own heavy bag that
otherwise might not be able to. For example, someone living in an
apartment might not even be able to use a heavy bag otherwise for fear of being evicted
due to property damage.
You may be concerned about the stability of a standing device.
While such concerns are understandable, they are also somewhat

result, it is a stable device that will not tip over. This makes it
virtually identical to a hanging bag affixed by ceiling hooks/screws in
terms of performance. It is indeed state-of-the-art!
some may be a little worried at the thought you need to assemble the
Cornerman yourself. This could be considered its prime disadvantage.
folks really do not like the idea of having to assemble a device on
their own. However, this is not one that requires a degree in
mechanical engineering to put together.
Anyone with a basic understanding of proper assembly will be able to put it together
with relative ease.
One other disadvantage could be the size of the apparatus. Yes, you will need a bit of floor
space to place the Cornerman in.
Those with limited space may also be limited in where they can assemble the device.
the disadvantages are for sure outweighed by its benefits.
Those in need of a solid, reliable heavy bag apparatus will find this innovative
piece of equipment to be awesome.
The device is made from 2 inch x 2 inch tubular steel frame.
The center support beam has five height adjustments from 82 inches to 106 inches
which lets you to hang bags at various heights.
The legs extend 7 9 1/2 in both directions
from the corner and it is made to hold up to a 100 lbs. training bag. As I am sure you know, the
training bag is not included.
With the Cornerman, you may never have to miss out on a heavy
bag workout ever again! Your Cornerman will truly be your cornerman when it comes to your
MMA training...helpfully holding your bag securely in place, every punch of the way!
Working Out with the Hydrocore Heavy Bag
If you are involved in any martial art that involves striking, you need to take part in impact training.
That means you need to hit a heavy bag to build up your toughness, conditioning, and endurance.
But, do you need to work out on a traditional heavy bag?
answer is not necessarily as there have been unique advancements in the
development of heavy bags. The Hydrocore bag would be considered one of
the more original training devices produced in recent years.
So, what exactly is a Hydrocore bag?
Basically, it is a heavy bag that is filled with water as opposed to
filling it up with sand or other similar items and materials. This
changes some of the dynamics of the bag but it does not completely
undermine the benefits of training on such a bag.
Clearly, hitting a bag filled with water will not deliver the same level of resistance of a bag filled with same.
However, this is NOT to say that there is not impact resistance with a water filled bag.
definitely will be hitting something solid since the shape of the bag
holds in the volume of water in a condensed area. That means you will
not experience an enormous amount of give when you hit the bag.
fist or feet will sink deeper into the bag than it would if it was
filled with sand. However, your impact will meet with enough resistance
that you will experience clear strength and endurance results from
working out on the bag.
There can also
be another advantage to using this bag. When you hit a bag that is
filled with sand or other solid materials, your limbs need to be
conditioned to deal with the impact.
This is true whether you are
wearing bag or boxing gloves or not. It is also not out of the question
that injuries can result from hitting a heavy bag when you are not
With a Hydrocore bag, this may not be as much of an issue.
The negative to this component of the bag is that you will not develop
hand or foot conditioning as quickly. This can be problematic when it
comes to getting the most out of your training session.
Ease of Storing
of the lesser mentioned benefits of using a Hydrocore bag is the ease
of storage with such a bag. You always have the option of emptying out
the water, folding the bag up, putting it away, and then pulling it out
and refilling it when you wish to hang the bag again. Granted, you would
not be doing this every night but when the time comes where you need to
store the bag or transport it, you can do so easily. This would
certainly not be the case if the bag was filled with sand.
using the bag comes with a variety of lesser known benefits which make
it quite the helpful training tool. As such, it remains highly
recommended to those looking for a unique spin on a classic training
