A punching bag or a punch-bag is a sturdy bag designed to be punched again and again by boxers or kickboxers. It is made in such a way that it can endure repeated punches, without breaking. Also, these bags can absorb the force of blows, without causing any harm to the puncher. Punching bags have a cylindrical shape and are usually filled with material such as sand, grains, and rugs. The type of material filled is as per the solidity required in the punching bag. These bags are either attached to a stand or are hung from the ceiling using chains or ropes.
Punching bags are generally used in military training, martial arts, swordplay, and combat sports. Repeatedly punching this bag helps in developing punching techniques. Other than punching, these bags are used for striking maneuvers and for practicing kicking. Punching bags are training instruments that can help in developing power, stamina, and strengthening hands or any other limb used to hit the bag.
