Boxing Punching Bag by yourself
The high cost of factory boxing bags, delivery, and filling quality pushes trained competitors to buy empty Punching Boxing Heavy Bag covers with their consequent self-filling.
For this, we need:
- Buy boxing bag cover
- Define with filler (more on that below)
- Sand, empty bags, if you need to weigh the bag
- A piece of polyethylene foam or isolate
So, everything is evident with the cover. It should be of high quality, made of dense fabric.
It is better to purchase a cover immediately with a harness (chains). The prices for the surfaces are usually much less than the prices for Boxing Punch Bag of similar dimensions, and they serve for many years. Therefore, the purchase will be beneficial, in any case.
Most often, the following materials are used as a filler:
- Rags, rags
- Polyurethane foam
- Rubber crumb
- Foam crumb
Sand, as the only filler, is used extremely rarely – more often, they increase the necessary weight if, for example, the volume of a boxing bag is already filled with sawdust, and the required weight has not yet been reached. Sawdust is cheap to manufacture, but it shrinks – sometimes significant, sometimes barely noticeable. Some clients are afraid that the sawdust will dust – the fears are fair. If the sawdust fraction is too small, it can squeeze through the seams and crevices of the boxing bag, especially under the influence of a blow. Sizing of seams and a dustproof lining on top of the bag saves from this to reduce the penetration of sawdust through the zipper.
Polyurethane foam, rubber crumb, foam rubber – are modern, high-quality, but relatively expensive materials for filling Boxing Punch Bag.
By the way, we have an article on the pros and cons of sawdust and rubber crumb in boxing bags.
Rags and rags are the materials that, in our experience, are most often chosen by gyms and martial arts clubs. This is because they do not generate dust, create a shock-friendly density, and give low shrinkage. But, again, most often, you can get them for free at a tailor shop or garment factory.
WHY DO YOU NEED SAND IN A BOXING BAG?
Some users think of filling a punching bag with sand alone. But, in our opinion, this is a bad idea. Sand is a rigid material, working with which you can easily damage the knuckles, ligaments of the hands, and tendons. In addition, the density of the sand is relatively high, and if you try to fill a boxing cover with sand, for example, 100 cm, then the weight of this bag will exceed 150 kg.
But in filling the Boxing Punch Bag, sand is still used, for example, to make the projectile heavier. If we want to fill a bag 110 cm high with crumbs, its weight will be about 60 kg. If the goal is to make the punching bag heavier, you need to add sand to the crumb (or whatever filler you have chosen). You can’t just take and mix sand into the stuffing – the sand particles are microscopic, and during training, they will gradually fall down the bag until everything settles there. As a result, the bottom of the bag will be just stone, while the top will not be dense enough.
The best way is to pack the sand in plastic bags with 3-5 kg balls, and distribute them evenly over the entire height of the bag, achieving precisely the weight of the projectile you need.
SOFTENING CASING FROM POLYETHYLENE FOAM (OR ISOLATE)
PPE or Izolon is sold in any construction market and almost all large hardware stores. Need a thickness of 8 to 10 mm.
An emollient shell serves several purposes:
- Makes the bag more enjoyable to work and train.
- Distributes impact on the filler, reduces shrinkage.
- The bag is easier to fill because it stands flat during the filling process.
- The bag has a kind of “frame,” which affects the appearance (no wrinkles, folds)
While almost all Boxing Punch Bag manufacturers make cushioning, this isn’t necessary for you.
Usually, PPE can be purchased on a cut. However, it would help if you had a piece with the height of your bag and a length equal to the pack’s perimeter.

Empty boxing bags
Many gyms and trainers prefer to buy an empty Boxing Punch Bag (punching bag) and fill it with rags or crumbs leftover from a previous punching bag, because in the case of professional training, the bags become unusable very quickly, and there is no need to overpay for a new punching bag constantly.
By purchasing a boxing bag cover without a filler, you save money for the product and its delivery.

The price of a punching bag largely depends on three factors
- The material of which the punching bag (or bag) is made
- Mount type
- Punching bag filler used
What a punching bag is made of
As a material for the manufacture of boxing bags, I most often act:
- PVC fabric
- Artificial leather
All materials belong to the class of heavy fabrics, and special equipment of increased capacity is required for sewing.
What is the boxing bag filled with – the choice of filler
How many manufacturers, so many technologies. For example, many Boxing Punch Bag is filled with waste rags and rags, and some with sawdust. Most often, the following materials are used as a filler:
- Rags, rags;
- Polyurethane foam;
- Rubber crumb;
- Foam crumb;
Sand, as the only filler, is used extremely rarely – more often, they increase the required weight if, for example, the volume of a Boxing Punching Bag is already filled with sawdust, and the needed weight has not yet been reached. Sawdust is cheap to manufacture, but it shrinks – sometimes significant, sometimes unnoticeable. Some clients are afraid that the sawdust will dust – the fears are fair. If the sawdust fraction is too small, it can squeeze through the seams and crevices of the Sports Equipment especially under the influence of a blow. Sizing of seams and a dustproof lining on top of the bag saves from this to reduce the penetration of sawdust through the zipper.
Stuffing Boxing Punch Bag
Polyurethane foam, rubber crumb, foam rubber – are modern, high-quality, but expensive materials for filling Boxing Punching Bag. As a rule, when using these materials, the price of punching bags goes up. Therefore, if you want to buy a punching bag with one of these materials, it will be the best choice, although the price will be slightly higher than bags filled with sawdust.
Sometimes there are exotic proposals for stuffing Boxing Punch Bag on the forums – for example, it is advised to stuff only with cherry pits. We want to evaluate the effectiveness of this method, but we will not eat so many cherries. But, for those who want to fill a boxing bag themselves without overpaying for filling and transportation, we offer to buy covers for boxing bags without filling in the corresponding section of the site. For example, Muay Thai clubs and various martial arts sections prefer to buy boxing bag covers of our production for self-filling.

Typically, Boxing Punch Bag is attached to horizontal bars or doorways or anchors on the ceiling. Sometimes a unique wall mount is purchased by the weight of the boxing bag.
