Sharing is caring!

If you are looking to have a Muay Thai home gym set up and looking to purchase some fight equipment, your search ends here with this article. In this article, I review which are the Best Muay Thai Heavy Bags that are available in the market.

(This is the first in a 3-part Home Training Special series, where I look at equipment that used in Muay Thai and most stand-up combat training.) 

What are the Best Muay Thai Heavy Bags?

TL;DR The Best Muay Thai heavy bags should be made using high-quality leather for long-lasting durability. If you are looking to get your first heavy bag for home training, the banana bag (5 to 6-ft) will be the best one to start with.

This is the most versatile and ideal equipment for training Muay Thai at home. It allows you to drill all of Muay Thai weapons including the low kicks which you generally can’t with a standard bag (4-ft).

My pick for the best Muay Thai heavy bags brands are namely Fairtex and Outslayer.

In a hurry? Check my top 5 picks straight away (but I recommend scrolling down to read my detailed reviews to see which bag suits your needs best):

Introduction

Along with shadow boxing, pad work, clinching and sparring, bag work is an important aspect of Muay Thai training. It is an invaluable tool to improve striking skills -if properly utilized.

It is important to note that there are health risks involved due to the impact and hardness of heavy bags, especially for beginners. It is thus important to exercise due diligence and take precautionary steps to avoid injuries, such as hand-wrapping and using gloves with adequate protection for bag work.



Conclusion

On days when you have to skip training due to work, school or other commitments, having a heavy bag to return to at the end of the day is simply a savior. Just 15-20 minutes of intense bag work may be all you need to keep you .

Being able to practise the new moves at home that you picked up from your instructors can really help sink them in. As they say, practice makes perfect.

With the COVID-19 situation resulting in gym closures and lockdown around the world, home training is now more important than ever. Now may be the time to consider getting that home gym set up.

More than any other gear, the Muay Thai heavy bag is the best to start with since training can be performed in solitude. 

Chok dee!

    • Hi Jason. Thank you for your query and I added my opinion comparing the two different set-ups in the article. Freestanding bags cost a lot more than heavy bags but you end up paying for an inferior training experience. Freestanding bags may be easier to set up but overall, there are too many advantages of training with hanging bags that it makes very little sense to get a freestanding one. Hope that helps you in making your decision.
