Default Interested to try some bag and pad work

Over the past few months I've dabbled in a bit of light pad work with my best bud at the gym (a fitness instructor), using just basic mitts and pads. I've never boxed a real round in my life nor stepped into a ring, but I'd certainly be interested to give some heavy bag work a try - if even just to add to my normal workouts, and have a bit of fun.

As per the topic I made a while back, I haven't really been taking anything seriously up to now - no wraps, no proper gloves or anything. Just walking around an open space, punching inaccurately with horrible technique and a tendency to crumple up my thumb and hurt it every time I whack the pads.

So basically, if my bud (who himself has just joined a boxing gym for the first time) ever happens to get a heavy bag, I'd definitely be keen to try out some hard-hitting stuff alongside him. As in, just letting my hands go and see what comes out, y'know?

For this purpose - and solely this purpose, since I don't ever plan on sparring or fighting for real - I'd like some advice on what type of gloves I would need. Just throw some brands/oz. numbers at me, and also wrapping techniques would be helpful to know (I normally work as a typist, so my hands need to be very well protected).

Any help from you guys who do this stuff regularly would be much appreciated.

For that seriously just go and buy a pair of $30-40 dollar bag/training gloves. I think even Walmart carries the cheap everlast ones. I have the cheap K.O. ones they're **** for anything but bag work, but if you're just gonna pound a heavy bag they're fine.
16 oz would be a good idea.
Nothing you have to order off the net though, not worth the effort for you.
in terms of hand wrap techniques those will change with your needs, I have tough knuckles and ****ty wrists so I wrap to protect my wrists more. Honestly google that try a few different ones.
You can go lighter on the gloves but since you type for a living get the 16 ouncers to protect your hands.

Well, bearing in mind I'm in the UK, so that amount would be roughly 15-20. Pretty much the price I was thinking of. Everlast, you say? So I definitely don't need any Cleto Reyes or anything hefty?, since I don't ever intend on fighting.

16oz, got'cha. Those those are big, right? Are they OK to do pad work on, too?

Yeah 16 oz are big, but that's what I use to do pad work. If you're a smaller guy you can get away with a smaller weight on the gloves, it's mostly about what you're willing to put your hands through, or the guy holding the pads.
I've done Pads in just wraps, my trainer had to stop half way through one round though and told me to get my gloves back on.
But for bag work definately use 14-16 oz depending on your size, if there's no price difference get the 16 ounce and save your knuckles the abuse.

Good stuff, I'll bear that in mind. Size-wise, 5' 10" and 153lbs - I know I could get down to 147 by draining myself a bit (or working out harder, whichever more!), but I doubt it matters much. I'll most likely plod around flat-footedly and throw lumbering, feather-fisted punches anyway.
