Hanging a punching bag in your home can be a great way to get some exercise and release stress
You’ll need to find the right spot for your bag.
Ensure there’s enough space to include the height of your mounting equipment, and away from any furniture that you don’t want to move each time you train.
When installing hooks, make sure they’re strong enough to hold up weight while also being rugged enough not to break with repeated impacts.
If the hooks came with your punching bag, they should be fine.
What You Need
- Punching bag
- Chain (if your bag doesn’t have built-in straps)
- Mounting bracket
- Lag screws
- Metal Washers
- Measuring tape
How To Hang Your Punching Bag
- Find a ceiling beam or concrete slab that’s strong enough to hold the weight and momentum of your bag
- Use a string and tape measure to mark out where you want your punching bag to hang
- Attach the mounting bracket to the ceiling beam or concrete slab using strong screws that will hold under pressure
- Attach the spring to your mounting bracket to help reduce vibration when training
- Attach the chain or straps to the spring using a carabiner
- Measure the correct height you want your bag to hang from the chain or straps
- Adjust your straps or chains if needed to get the correct height
- Attach your punching bag to the chain or straps using carabiners
- Hang your punching bag
Test if everything is secure before using it, and you’re ready to train!
