    MMA/boxing gloves


    Anyone have suggestions for a cheapish pair of gloves to hit the heavy bags with at the gym. I was thinking probably something thinner, more in the style of MMA, rather than boxing gloves, but I'm open to all suggestions.

    Really starting to enjoy mini cardio/boxing sessions after my workouts.

    Go with boxing gloves. You'll be thankful. Combat sports are nice at a decent price.

    Yeah i don't feel like I need big azz boxing gloves either.. That's kinda what I was getting at. Hm maybe wraps will work.. The bags are pretty heavy though.

    Thanks for the reply

    Boxing gloves and wraps. You can find a decent pair of Everlast for cheap and get 180" wraps for the hands. It'll take time for your hands to acclimate to the pounding on the knuckles and wrists.
