Hello all, I'm new here, so I hope I posted this in the correct forum
I have a question about punching bag gloves:
I've recently decided to get into boxing, so today I purchased a 30 kg punching bag.
I was also looking for gloves to use while training, but all of the heavier gloves they had available in the store had a leather exterior. The only non-leather gloves they had where lighter, gel padded gloves. The man responsible for the boxing equipment in the store assured me these would be sufficient for a beginner, so I purchased these as well:http://www.domyos-fitness.com/EN/dc-aer ... -21193613/
The wrists are quite well protected, the tape at the bottom wraps around 2 to 3 times and the wrist feels well supported. It's mainly for the knuckles that I wonder if it gives sufficient protection against injury when hitting the bag; the gel padding is about 1.2 cm thick.
Do any of you have any experience with these type of gloves? Are these sufficient for a beginner that doesn't hit very hard yet, or should I already wear a heavier type of glove with wrappings underneath?
Thanks for any advice on this,
