Wasn't sure if this should go under equipment or crosspit so if its in the wrong place, I apologize. What kind of heavy bag gloves do you guys use and recommend? I use the bag 2-3 times a week for general conditioning and fun nothing too serious.
Thanks

I use Everlast Training Gloves for bag work and they were just fine -- used them daily for quite a while and never had any issues with them.

The Fairtex gloves are great though, too - I have a pair of sparring gloves from them that I love, but they have others that are a little less expensive that are great for bag and pad work.

Most of the fighters in my gym have Windy. They are very good.

I have Cleto Reyes training gloves for sparring and Fairtex for bag/mitt work.

Personal opinion, but I always feel that bag gloves aren't the best to use....

I always use full boxing gloves, 18oz, 16oz, 14oz, 12oz or 10oz, depending on the stage of my fight preparation, or MMA gloves if I'm going to do an MMA match...

The use of full gloves for fitness also helps to prevent injuries...and adds weight (some weighted gloves are available) to make it harder.

Just a note on wrapping the hands though, don't wrap them too tight, the hand needs to flex slightly on impact within its structure. If you wrap too tightly it can have the effect of not allowing the movement and causing structural problems in the hand, the same as wrapping too loosely. The hands should be supported, not constricted.

Hope this helps!

I only wrap for competition.

Never wrap in training, but I have good genetics, and have learnt to prop my punches correctly. Those with weaker wrists or thinner bone structure in the hands should consider it, also those that don't form the correct fist or are new to punching...
