    I recently moved into a 3rd floor apt.

    My question is would a free standing bag piss people off underneath me.

    I've only owned hanging bags but those wont work for the amount of space I have...due to having to buy a stand.

    Should I buy a free standing bag?

    They are gonna bitch man. You gotta back yard where your staying? Maybe put it in the basement, get a mat and just work out down there.

    I bet it would make quite a bit of noise especially if you're going hard with it...

    Dude, fuck 'em. Especially if at some point you're gonna go Pro. I used to have my 150lbs bag in my car-port when I lived in Virginia. Problem was the entire thing was made of aluminum (car-port that is) and at the time I was REALLY into "Iron Palm" training, and had a bad habit of going out to hit the bag at like 2am. This kept me from killing silly-ass roommates. But anyhow, I lived in a REALLY ghetto neighborhood at the time and at-first people were kind of pissy with me about how much and how loud I was hitting the bag. But, they were also scared shitless of me because of it. They knew I was a fighter and that that's just what I did, so after a while I just became like the neighborhood novelty. Now that I do six rounds of heavybag work at 8am, shake my house when I hit it, and blast Death Metal the whole time, even in this more ritzy neighborhood I live in now no one says a damn thing.

    I'm not saying be a prick about it. But if they know you're a nice guy and that you take the shit seriously, they'll deal with it.

    LoL I wonder why they haven't thought to call the cops. If it was that annoying I would assume someone would file a noise complaint.

    You didn't catch the part about being afraid. Cops gotta leave sometime.

    If they call the cops and interrupt my training, thus negating my ability to substanciate a living, they deserve the beatings. The one nearest the phone gets it first.

    I'm a Moderator dumbass, it's my job to go around here, post warnings, and keep this place free of stupidity.

    Speaking of which, you didn't just say that...and bing.
