    When working on bags do you bags gloves, wraps or bare hands. Why is that what you chose?

    my skin is delicate.. no clue why.. I get a blister from painting.. sooo therefore I use gloves.. even wraps don't protect.. otherwise .. finding out the hard way.. I get bloodied knuckles within minutes of bag work sans gloves.

    It depends on what I am working on. If I am practicing techniques, bare hands. If I am practicing punches and and kicks definitely gloves are on.

    I worked out without gloves once..... once.


    I have a 70lb canvas bag in my basement... I coulden't find my gloves... i worked out anyway.. I left what felt like a pound of flesh on the bag.. it looked like something out of a hellraiser movie.

    I like gloves.. gloves are my friend..

    If I plan to work out for a while I put on my gloves, otherwise I go bare knuckle. I don't do blood and my nursing skills suck ... so I prefer my to keep my hands protected.

    For seriouse bag (any kind of bag) or dummy work, I wrap and glove. For light work, just gloves.

    Why is that what you chose?
    Because arthritus and other joint problems really suck.

    This site does wonders for my self discipline. BTW, you didn't say we couldn't make fun of the "soft hands" or "scarred elbows" comments though.

    Gloves? what are those? (hey, scars are s'posed to be cool aren't they?)

    Okay, seriously, I don't wear them because I want my hands conditioned. Now I'm not going to go start punching steel plates 100 times a day, I'd like to be able to move my hands when I'm 40, but I don't think I need the wraps/gloves just to work the heavy bag.

    Even boxers wrap their hands or glove them working the bags.....
    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.

    Boxers don't use sword hands, ridge hands, hammer fists, back knuckles, claws, rakes, etc, etc, etc, etc..... I like to have my hands "free." I guess it's just the grappler in me.

    Don't get me wrong. You should wear protection (get your minds out of the gutter please) to avoid injury, and future injury. I wear braces regularly to help prevent injuries. The problems I have with my joints now are because I didn't take better care of them when I was younger.

    Our bags aren't heavy canvas, so punching them generally doesn't condition my hands. I'll punch some without gloves for doing drills and I occasionally do put gloves on, but I think I'm just going to have wimpy hands.

    Pain avoidance.

    My right knee is messed up, my left leg is heavy with lymphedema and I've been in about 6 car accidents, so my back is messed up.

    sniff.

    My hands are all I have left. (wimper wimper)
