Punch Bags: Static Trainers
Punch bags are static trainers which give ample scope for learning and improving one’s punching technique. They are sturdy bags hung at a specific point (hence the word static) and are punched repeatedly by the fighters in order to learn the tricks of the boxing trade. This kind of physical activity not only acts as a form of physical fitness exercise but also acts as a cathartic vent to one’s stress levels.
These punch bags find their extensive use in the areas of martial arts, combat sports and in military training too where the sportsmen can practice kicking and different varieties of striking maneuvers along with honing up and mastering their skills in punching.
Punch bags come in different types and shapes to suit the specific purpose it has to meet. They are given different names depending on the size in which they come in and also the mounting methods used. Most of these bags are either covered in synthetic materials like vinyl or leather or even canvas depending on the frequency of usage.
And, these punch bags are often filled with sand, grains, rags or various kinds of other materials that suit the training stipulation.
Dave Toub is a strong believer in quality punch bags. Please check out one of my favorite punch bags and see the Punching Bags Pro homepage if you are interested in other gear as well.
