A heavy punching bag can be a great addition to any home gym. The only question is, what should you fill it with?
There are many different options for filling a heavy punching bag and each has its own pros and cons.
In this blog post, we will explore the most popular types of filler materials that people use and their benefits so you can make an informed decision about which one would be best for your needs.
The first and most popular filler is sand. Sand is cheap, easy to work with, and doesn’t damage the floor of your home gym if it spills out.
However, some people find that the sand flies around too much on impact which can be annoying for other members in your household or during a fight club session at your house.
For this reason, the second most popular filler is water. Water can be more slippery than sand but it doesn’t fly around as much so if you have a lot of people in your home gym and want to avoid distractions at all costs, then water may be the best option for you.
The third type of filler that some people use is a combination of cloth/fabric materials and sand. One example is using spare old towels or clothes that are too worn out to use anymore. This also prevents a lot of the sand from spilling out during your training session and keeps it in place. This method can provide an authentic feel when punching the bag since they’re similar to what fighters actually hit each other with during professional matches.
In conclusion, these are three types of fillers that people use for their heavy punching bags and each has its own benefits. There is no perfect filler because they all have pros and cons, but it’s up to the individual person to decide which one will work best in their home gym environment.
