    I wanted to know the various weights of gloves people use to train with, not sparring just pad/bag work. I'm interested to see what boxers use vs muay thai vs mma

    16oz for everything.

    I'd normally be wearing smaller for bag work and pads, but I've got an injured thumb and tbh I feel that training with heavier gloves might not be such a bad thing.

    For Bag and Pad work I have 16s, 14s and some 10s that arent really full gloves but just bag gloves.

    For sparring I have 16s.


    I used to do everything with 16s but my dad recommended I do my pad work with soemthign lighter to work on my quickness.

    Bag gloves are 10 oz's because I like to perfect technique and feel where my punches are going. Also they save my sparring gloves.

    I have two sets of sparring gloves. 14 oz that I always use and 16 oz cleto reyes gloves that I rarely use, but have on hand when I need something heavier.

    OT but what are people's opinions about wearing only wraps when working the double-end-bag?
