It depends on your budget and space available. There are bags that are supported from the ceiling and others that are on a stand. I guess you don’t want to get one that hangs, especially if your place (room/home) doesn’t support that type of weight. I would go around and visit different stores to see what they have available and ask their associates to help me find the best one. It would also be a good opportunity for you to try out a few of them and get a better feel as to which one would work for you. They come in various shapes and sizes and their price varies as well. Maybe a kickboxing instructor can give you a better answer and visiting a boxing gym might be a good idea.
I hope this helps.
I agree with Harris that it depends on budget, space, etc…, and I would do some research.
My suggestion would be to visit a boxing gym for a few lessons and advice on different types of bags (it’s such an amazing workout and both challenging and fun). They should have qualified boxing instructors to help you.
I mainly teach cardio kickboxing (which is a class format without bags), and I’m not a bag expert, but I do work with clients doing boxing drills on the bag. We have a bag at the gym where I work–and I use the same bag to train both my male and female clients. Maybe not the best, but its works for both. I’ve also had sessions myself with a boxing trainer, and females at the boxing gym use a lot of the same bags as the men (depends on your drills). That being said, there are so many options out there, and perhaps there is a better option for females that a boxing professional would be able to help you with.
Have fun and good luck!
A bag I would recommend is the Wave Master XXL. Its an affordable bag that can take a beating. Its a stand alone bag meaning that it doesn’t have to be hung from a ceiling or anchored. I would however recommend buying a good pair of gloves and and wraps to protect your hand. Hope this helps!
As Salvador mentioned, mitts and wrist wraps should be worn for protection and wrist stability. As i also teach womens boxing, i use a cloth bag on a stand. i put extra weight on the base so the stand does not move. i dont know your expierence with boxing or i you work alone. if you exercise alone, the bag can swing too much and, become a danger and, interfere with your exercise session. Some of my bags i have controlled the swing by using those elastic straps you can buy in a hardware store to hold your trunk of your car down. i simply tie a rope around the bag tight and hook one end of the strap into the rope and the other end into something solid. i use several. this allows a nice kick without losing control of the bag. Most important is to find a bag that is comfortable for you. That is your best bag.
