    Are hand-wraps necessary to use on a double end bag if you are wearing MMA gloves or boxing gloves?

    I know they are necessary for the heavy-bag for sure but I'm not sure if you really need them for double end bags.

    P.S: Would you need them for mitwork as well?

    Thanks for reading!

    Wrap for all things. At any time you can jack a wrist up even if you think it's the most simplest of things. I use 180" to 200" for boxing gloves and if I am wearing MMA gloves then I wear 108" wraps. As I said....just wrap up when training. It will become routine and you won't even have to think about it.

    Wrapping for everything is smart, however, I have hit the speed bag and double end bag without wraps multiple times and have never felt any danger.

    The biggest concern is using mma gloves, I would get bag mitts.

    You don't need wraps for Speed or DE bags

    However, you definitely need wraps for Heavy Bag, Uppercut Bags, Mitts, and Sparring.

    I just always wrap whenever I plan on hitting something. I always have, so it just feels weird if I put on gloves without my hands being wrapped.
