    What are all you guys using to stuff your heavy bag with ? I'm fixing to buy one for kicking/punching timed drills, mainly for cardio ( since I don't ever plan on compition ).

    I've heard sand, and rags, but I I was just wondering what every one on here was using and maybe where you got it at.

    Thanx in advance

    Never ever ever use sand!

    In my very heavy bag (my kick bag) I use shards of rubber. Its tough, but has enough spring to give a realistic sensation. Personally, i haven't used anything that I think even compares to rubber.

    I have in the past (and even now on my other bags) used old curtains - the ones that are real heavy. These are good. Bried beans is another option, although i find it to be incredibly dusty. Pieces of leather also work.

    Any carpet store will have carpet padding - which is great for filling bags. You can even get used padding from their dumpsters (as long as they are not too stinky)
