I went last night to Academy Sports and Outdoors and bought a bag. They had an Everlast Nevatear 100lb bag for $68.99 (not on sale). I bought some Everlast bag gloves as well. I did not buy hand wraps, but I was thinking of wearing my lifting gloves (they have a wrist wrap, wraps about 2 1/2 times) underneath for wrist support. I plan to take it easy the first couple weeks and see how my hands and wrists do. The same bag at 9th Street Gym is $109 with free shipping.
