The sole purpose of wearing hand wraps is to provide better protection to the hand than all other MMA bandages. Hand wraps are considered among the must haves of your boxing kit.  It is best if the wrap is long enough to cover your hand in multiple rounds and has a thumb loop as it gives you added protection and security underneath the glove. To get the ultimate boxing experience it is best to look for a hand wrap that is secure and made of premium quality materials such as RDX HW Professional Boxing Hand Wraps. The extra thick carbon fiber woven fabric enables the wrap to provide maximum security to the hand and has a length of an anaconda to cover your hand and wrist.RDX T17 Aura Boxing Hand Wraps

  1. Bag Gloves

Bag gloves are specifically designed for punching bags and boxing pads. The bag glove has comparatively less padding compared to the usual boxing glove because with a bag glove, you do not have to worry about hurting your opponent or punching too hard. A bag glove is also usually smaller than a boxing glove. The only similar characteristic of a boxing and bag glove is that of the wrist wrap that is necessary to provide good grip that does not make the hand slip inside the glove. Like the boxing gloves, it is necessary to invest in a good pair of bag gloves too as your punch would mean nothing if the glove is not powerful enough to sustain the strength and power you throw. Made with a sturdy Maya Hide™ leather and boosted with a quadruple padding plus shock-absorbing gel and foam, RDX 1P Boxing Bag Gloves are sure to give you the experience of a lifetime while bag boxing. Giving you maximum comfort and providing ultimate protection.RDX 1P Pink Boxing Bag Gloves

Training on focus pads is the best way to develop fighting reflexes, punching and defense techniques. It also helps you develop a fighting strategy that you can use during the fight and win your way through it. Hitting the focus pad does not only help you achieve a good workout but is also intellectually stimulating. It is also among the most realistic fight training simulation next to sparring.

  1. Punching Bag

A punching bag is a sturdy bag designed to be repeatedly punched. It is an ideal bag made to train boxers and combat athletes to develop strength and endurance since it uses a large variety of muscles from your legs, through your core to your arms. It takes an intense 3-minute round to leave you struggling for breathe and to hold your arms up after 4 or 5. Just make sure you wear hand wraps or bag gloves before you take on the punching bag. A good quality punching bag needs to be made of good quality leather such as Maya Hide leather. The punching bags made of Maya Hide leather possess a higher endurance quality than other punching bags that are made of normal regular leather.
