Just a quick question, my friends told me to hit the speedbag without gloves for better results, but i think that wearing 16 oz gloves while hitting the speedbag will benefit my speed even more, for obvious reasons. What do ya'll think? Are my friends right? Or does it even matter gloves or no gloves? :dunno:

ive never seen anyone use gloves on a speed bag. wraps or no wraps, but not gloves. try it if you want, but its going to be awkward- especially with 16 oz gloves...

weird, i don't think there is room for 2 gloves to hit properly, considering the speed ball is so small and the distance between the wooden platform and the ball is just to short.

/i am going to the gym so i will try it in an hour

I've never seen it attempted, sounds a bit silly imo.

what in gods name are you smoking? I don't think anyone on planet motherf****** earth who has ever succeeded at the sport of boxing has hit a speedbag wearing gloves. Now there are SPEEDBAG gloves which are sold, but they aren't weighted or anything their like leather mittins that cover your hands so you dont get cut, and im pretty sure the last person to actully use them in training was ali himself lol. Either if you don't wanna make an ass out of yourself don't start hitting a speedbag wearing boxing gloves, the person who told you that is a fool.

re-read his post, his friend told him not to use gloves but he wanted to..

to the thread starter, stick with the wraps.

16oz gloves? WTF. Give your mate a ****ing slap. Wear hand wraps only. I never saw anyone do them with sparring gloves ever. i have seen very thin and very worn out bag gloves being used though.

I've never seen gloves of any sort. Usually hand wraps or bare knuckle.
