How To Hit Punching Bag Safely?

To hit and kick the punching bag properly, go through these safety checks:

  • Hit the bag with straight wrist such as the back of hand and top of wrist joint are just in line.
  • If you are going to punch with a bent wrist, you might damage your tendons.
  • When it comes to front kicks, only the ball of your foot must touch the bag.
  • For sidekicks, make sure that only your heel is touching the bag.
  • Don’t forget to wear proper boxing gloves and protective gear.
