Default heavy bag/boxing

Anyone here box or work a heavy bag in your garage? I picked up a 100lb bag this weekend. I youtube'd a few video's for some pointers. Man...I thought a knew what cardio was until this. Getting through two straight minutes is tough. Tonight was my second night at it and my hands/knuckles are hurting after about 30 minutes.

It came with a pair of 14 oz gloves. They're a little loose but I don't know how boxing gloves are suppose to fit or if a lighter/heavier weight would perform better. I'm 5'5" @ 185lbs. Do you think a 75lb bag would be better?

Over all, it's pretty kick ass to get in there an throw some punches. I hope to improve my foot work and over all technique.

Anyone else?

No, what does that do? I'd be going through too much tape to do that after every few minutes of unwrapping and resting.

Is that why my pink and ring finger knuckles hurt the most and a little bruised?

It basically makes your hand a rock. That's how they are able to hit so hard without breaking their hand / wrist.

You can buy wraps from sports store. Ones that are made of a cloth material. That is what i have at home. Helps protect your knuckles/hand/wrist. Watch some vids on how to wrap using cloth material.

Wrap your hands. Like an idiot I didn't about 8 years ago and tore a ligament in my carpal bones... ended up having to have surgery. Not fun.

Yes, get the wraps that stretches and either has a velcro like sticky part, or the little metal clip. Not actual tape, these can be used over and over.
