I have 2 sets of gloves in my arsenal. I’m use the 16 oz gloves when I do your heavy bag workouts but was wondering about the 12 oz gloves and what I could use them for?
Personally id use 12oz gloves for the bag and shadow boxing. 16oz are better for sparring or as a warm up. Try using 16's for one round or a punch review warm up. Then switch to the 12's. Your punches will likely feel better. BUT if you're naturally a bigger dude ( 210 plus ) 16's might make sense. I use 12 oz and I'm 181
I’m also asking because I’m attempting to get my one son involved with the heavy bag. He has some anger issues at times and I’m trying to find outlets for him. Would the 12 ounce gloves be good for him? He’s 9 years old…. I had him try the gloves on and they seem like they’ll fit him well.
Thanks in advance for the feedback coach.
Boxing is amazing to help kids regulate. Short bursts on the bag or hand pads works wonders. 12 oz may be too big but again if he's a bigger kid it could work. Maybe get him some glove hand wraps to fill the space inside.
The kiddo also has karate sparring gloves…. More MMA style gloves. Are these safe/durable enough for a heavy bag?
Again I thank you for your time.
