Hello guys, It's a simple question because I really don't know what is better if make the training bag with low oz gloves(10-12oz) or with high oz gloves(14-20oz) because one's says that better one thing and others the other...
Then please, write here your opinion HIGH OZ GLOVES or LOW OZ GLOVES, for the training bag, and the why.

Thanks to all!!
Best regards

always use 16 oz on the heavy bag and sparring. once in a while you can use 10 or 12 oz to work on your speed and technique on the bag a little bit

Ive been using 16oz to train in mainly because my 10oz's got worn out and I be bothered to buy another pair.

I think training in heavier gloves is better for arm endurance but in terms of sharpness and speed, well obviously wearing heavier gloves will affect that, but I doubt it would actually slow you down.

I dont like hitting the bag in 16oz's though, feels like Im punching a cloud lol. Hitting the bag with 10oz's feels much more solid but messes up your hands quicker aswell

I like to use higher because when you fight the lower weight gloves feel really good and you can punch faster and harder.

i use 16 oz for everything. sparring you need high oz for obvious reasons... training with 16 oz wont make you SLOWER... it should do the opposite. once you use lower oz gloves you will notice an increase in speed. also i use 16 oz for bag work

As far as i'm concerned, i use 16oz for every aspects of my training (sparring, mitts, bag work).

Sometimes i put on 10oz gloves just to see the results, as far as speed concern, and everytime i'm more than happy.

Currently experimenting on the benefits of using 20oz gloves, then sparring with 16oz.

Usually I train with only 16oz, nothing lower, but for the past 2 weeks I've been sticking to 20oz for bagwork, and haven't sparred yet. It was sure hard at first, my arms were killing me with the 20oz, but 2 weeks later it's not as hard anymore.

I don't plan on using anything heavier than 18oz for sparring, because of the unrealistic sense of defense (having a bigger shield).

2 more weeks and I'll see what it's like to use 16oz again, and in sparring, too.

I like 14 oz gloves for bag work. Always have. They arent so heavy that you feel like they slow you down, but they have enough padding that your hands wont be hurting you afterwards. Id say it really depends on how much bag work you do, and how your hands feel with whatever you have tried. I have worked on the bag with lighter gloves, and they make you feel like a beast. But I cant play the guitar for **** later that night from how stiff my hands are.

I like my guys to train with gloves two ounces heavier than the gloves they will be fighting with and for sparring four ounces heavier. For protection and this way the transaction or adjusting of training and fighting gloves is easier on the boxer. However, I keep in mind the weight of my fighter and heavier fighters require heavier gloves for sparring. Some of the pros that I work with like to use 8 and 10 oz gloves on the bags and mitts which is okay because it forces the boxer to throw punches correctly otherwise they can sprain their wrists. This is the old school way of training boxers to throw and connect punches correctly and let me tell you, there are a lot of guys training this way, which is why you always hear of pro boxers injuring their hands/wrists. I think that it's all up to the individual and what they are comfortable with but yes heavier gloves will condition your arms and shoulders to better handle upper extremity fatigue. However, you can also condition your arms, shoulders and neck muscles by doing other forms of conditioning exercises. :boxing:
