What weight punching bag is right for me?
Ideally, you'll want a weight that allows the bag to sway or move back a little with each hit. Too light and it will move too much. Too heavy and it will absorb your hits like a brick wall. It's best to get some guidance from someone with experience in striking beforehand, but a 60-pound punching bag is a good choice for a man who hits reasonably hard, while a 100-pound bag should be reserved for extremely heavy hitters. Depending on their frame, women may benefit from using lighter bags.
