How to Make a Homemade Punching Bag





As mentioned recently, if you’re stuck in quarantine and unsure of how to train, it’s useful to study those who thrived in minimalist environments. In other words, learn from those who walked the walk. And some of the best examples you’ll find come from old school fighters. It was their life, not just something they tried for a few weeks. With that in mind, I’ll use this entry to share a few tips on how to create a homemade punching bag.


Homemade Punching Bag

Homemade punching bags are quite common in boxing. Many gyms lack funding, so it is essential to devise inexpensive workarounds. The tire punching bag serves as a perfect example. Used tires can often be acquired for free. Once they are bolted together, the tires can be hung almost anywhere.


Below you can see an example of a young amateur fighter striking a tire bag in Colombia. As you will see, the bag is fully functional and works well outdoors.


Uppercut Bag

Tires can also be sawed and bolted together in unique ways to create homemade uppercut bags. You can see two examples in the video that follows. The first can be seen at the beginning of the clip, with a second variation visible at the 2:00 mark. The first works particularly well for uppercuts, while the latter is ideal for practicing hooks.


Instructions

As for bolting the tires together, the instructions are quite simple. Below is a video that I’ve shared before that details the process.


Final Thoughts

In summary, if you are looking for an inexpensive bag, you really can’t go wrong with tires. You can make a quality homemade punching bag for the price of a few bolts and attachments. Tire bags are waterproof and virtually indestructible. You will also be doing the environment a favor by using some otherwise worthless tires.


Happy punching!
