    The first thing I want to do is check out whether or not my basement would be ideal to transform into a home gym. While the space is big and wide, the height is not plentiful, only being 6ft. 9inches high.

    Can a punching bag fit into this basement. Keep in mind, I'm 5ft. 11 inches myself.

    Low hanging ceilings, really, really, suck from the perspective of hanging bags. I am so happy I am no longer in that type of living situation. There are only so many ways to shorten a hanging chain, especially, if you plan to use a spring with the bag.

    And, freestanding bags are usually a last resort, IMHO. If you can't work out enough height, a pole bag on a pole mounted to the floor, but not the ceiling, may be something to look into. Believe me, I feel your pain. Hopefully, someone will have some good information. Good luck.

    Then again, as a last resort, outside may always be an option. :icon_lol: Sorry guys, I couldn't help myself. This is the patented "Shoob" method.

    Haha, million dollar idea Shoob had. It's that or he tear his whole house down by hanging a bag up in the house.
