AliTyson is a rookie! Class in session...
nice thread. I have a question. My wife bought me an everlast heavy bag and an everlast stand (nice one) I have it in my room, but i think the bag is too light for my weight.

i weight 220 and the bag is 70 pounds...i hit the bottom of the bag where the weight is concentrated so maybe it swings less but it still swings alot.

do you recommend moving up to a heavier bag (considering my body weight) or should I just hit the bag faster but with less power?!

sorry if this question sounds too simple I am not a boxer but I am an angry guy that like to beat the crap out of things often

also i am trying to lose some weight....thanks in advance for your response.
