    I want to get a heavy bag to toss up in my garage, and have no idea how heavy to go. I thought I wanted like a 125lb, but I can't seem to find them anywhere at all. Except for some $500 one.

    Can anyone help me out? :hs:

    I'm happy with my 100lb everlast. I also have a 40lb from when I was a lot younger and it's kind of fun to whack around and see how much I can make it swing with one hit, or let it swing and strike it as a moving target... a little silly but fun anyway :)

    Yeah, I was worried that 100 would not be enough. Not that I'm a raging tank-machine or anything, but 100lbs seems pretty light.

    I've gotten sprained wrists in the past from hitting the back, especially hooks... I finally realized the problem was simply that I had loose wrists when I was throwing punhches... Now I keep a very tight fist, and when I work out I make sure that my forearms get strengthened as well, and I haven't had any problems with backs, but yeah when I do the swinging thing it's really mostly for kicking.

    How would you hang these things and not have the ceiling cave in or warp?

    If I cant hang it you think itll be cool to have to "practice" ground and pound and crap like that?
