Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform


century punching bag standThe Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform is a made of steel and both a heavy bag and a speed bag can be hung from it. The speed bag platform adjusts between 67 and 79 inches and uses a ball bearing swivel to allow for fast action. The heavy bag hanging component does not adjust for height, but this isn’t really a concern as long as you have a decent length heavy bag. The stand has 3 pegs on the bottom that weights go on in order to keep it stable. The weights are necessary to prevent the stand from moving around the floor, or tipping over during use. You can also bolt the stand to the floor if you want to make sure it is fully secure.

Once the stand is stabilized, hitting a heavy bag hanging from it is good for developing power and endurance, however is not ideal for training fight strategy as the user is unable to take angles or sufficiently circle around the bag and target different angles. Using the speed bag platform is sufficient, since many speed bag workouts tend to require a target that does not swing too far. This Century heavy bag stand is a solid, durable, long-lasting piece of equipment and we strongly recommend it to those who want a quality heavy bag stand with the added benefit of a speed bag platform.

 Century Punching Bag Stand

century heavy bag standThe Century Punching Bag Stand is made out of heavy duty steel tubing. It is easy to assemble and can hold heavy bags weighing up to 120 lbs. There are 3 pegs on which to put weight plates. You need to add weight plates to increase the stability and prevent it from sliding about the training area.

This is one of Century’s most basic heavy bag stands; a simple design lacking any additional features such as a speed bag platform. It is somewhat taller than most other heavy bag stands, allowing for better use by taller customers. The stand is a well-built and should be a long lasting product. It is ideal for heavy bag routines that focus on developing power and training endurance, but it limits circular footwork so it is not ideal for strategic purposes (this is true for all stands). Since the stand is basic, it tends to be much cheaper than most other heavy bag stands. We heavily recommend this Century heavy bag stand for consumers looking for a basic, inexpensive, well-constructed stand.

Amber Sports The Champ Heavy Bag Stand

While this stand isn’t made by Century, it is another good choice to consider. The Champ Heavy Bag Stand is made by Amber Sports. The stand is a constructed of heavy gauge steel. It is relatively easy to assemble and is designed to support most heavy bags up to 100 pounds.  Like most other heavy bag stands, it has 3 pegs for placing weighted plates to make the stand stable and not move too much while in use. Like almost every other stand, weights for stabilization are not included, so you will need to purchase them separately.

The Champ is a very simple design. It does not have any additional features, nor does it need them. It is a solid, well-built product with one purpose: to hold a heavy bag. This stand is ideal for heavy bag routines that involve working on power and fitness, but not so much for fighters looking to train circular strategy as the stand itself limits the usable space around the bag (this is true for every stand which limits 360 degree access). Since it is not a name-brand product like Everlast or Century, it tends to be less expensive than some of the competitors. We recommend this stand for consumers looking for a basic, inexpensive, well-constructed heavy bag stand and are concerned with functionality and not name recognition.

TKO Punching Bag Reviews

TKO may not be the biggest name in martial arts, it is still a well known company that produces many great products. While Everlast, Century and Title are probably better known for heavy bags, TKO makes several quality punching bags that deserve consideration. In the reviews below we cover a TKO Muay Thai bag, a TKO punching bag and a TKO heavy bag wall mount. Definitely read the reviews to find out if one of these products are right for your training needs.

TKO Muay Thai Heavy Bag

TKO punching bagThe TKO Muay Thai Heavy Bag is an average sized Muay Thai bag that you might find in a Muay Thai or MMA gym. It is 72 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds, which is comparable to most other Muay Thai bags. The bag is constructed with slick PVC coated vinyl and the seams are made with reinforced nylon, which should keep the bag intact even after heavy beatings.

The bag comes hydraulically stuffed with a blended fiber filler for even weight distribution. This is nice as it should give you a consistent resistance experience when striking any part of the bag. Some people think it’s a little softer than comparable Muay Thai bags. Also, the PVC coated vinyl surface makes it comfortable for using unprotected weapons like kicks, elbows or knees. However, like with any bag, we still strongly recommend you use hand protection (i.e. gloves) if you are going to be punching the bag. It’s easy to cut up your knuckles if you don’t wear gloves when striking.

The TKO heavy bag can be secured to the ground by the loop at the bottom if a swinging bag is not preferred or practical in the training space because of its height. Because of its softness and smooth surface, we would recommend this bag to a wide variety of people. Aerobic fitness users would get a lot out of training with this bag, as would lighter beginner Muay Thai and MMA fighters. For serious fighters looking to improve their shin conditioning and kicking power, we might recommend a Muay Thai bag that is a little harder and offers a little more resistance. All in all, a fairly decent product.

TKO All Purpose Canvas Heavy Bag

TKO heavy bagThe TKO All Purpose Canvas Heavy Bag is significantly lighter than most punching bags that you might find in a boxing or MMA gym (unless they are training children). The bag is constructed from polycanvas and it has seams that are made reinforced nylon to keep it from bursting. The bag’s light weight means that it can be hung easier, which is especially useful for a home environment.

This bag comes pre-stuffed with a blended fiber filler. It has fairly high shock absorbency, which combined with its weight makes it a very forgiving heavy bag. That makes it excellent for avoiding injury. Polycanvas is not as smooth as other materials, so it’s possible that you may scrape yourself if you don’t wear proper training protection. Therefore we always suggest you use gloves when hitting a training bag, as you risk losing a great deal of skin off your knuckle (or knees or elbows) should you try to strike the bag with powerful bare-knuckle punches.

Due to the weight of the bag, this TKO heavy bag will definitely swing freely with even medium strength kicks or punches. Therefore we’d suggest securing it to the ground, which can be done by a loop on the bottom of the bag. Since the bag is lighter than most other MMA punching bags, it is really meant for amateur training or for lighter fighters. The general rule of thumb is to use a punching bag that is about 1/2 your body weight. So keep this in mind if you are interested in this bag. Larger adults or fighters will not get the resistance that they need from it. The bag may also be suitable for children who are just getting started in martial arts training. Overall, we think this is a very good 50 pound TKO punching bag that you should consider.

TKO Heavy Bag Wall Mount

tko punching bag wall mountThis wall mount is definitely worth considering if you want to buy (or already have) a TKO punching bag (or actually any brand). What’s nice about using a wall mount is that it can be easier to set up than a heavy bag stand. The wall mount is also good to use if you don’t want to (or can’t) hang a bag directly from the ceiling, or a stand is too big for the room you in which you want to use the bag.

The wall mount is very sturdy and can hold bags up to 100 pounds. One of the very cool features of the mount is the pull pin swivel system, which lets you move the bag to the side when not in use. This is very convenient for home use, especially in shared space (ex. a garage). The handle on the mount extends 27 inches from the wall, so there is sufficient room for striking.

Of course, just like a heavy bag stand, a wall mount restricts 360 degree access to the bag. So you can’t practice circling and other techniques. However, other than that, the wall mount may be a good choice to hang your training bag. Training with a wall mount is a good way to practice your striking techniques with kicks and punches. Just take care to to pay attention to where the wall is as you don’t want to miss the bag and hit the wall instead. If you don’t want to hang your punching bag from the ceiling, but aren’t sure about a wall mount, you can also check out our heavy bag stand reviews to see if a stand would be a better option to use for your MMA training.

Everlast Punching Bag Stand Reviews

Everlast is one of the largest and best known martial arts accessory brand in the world and we review 3 of their top punching bag stands. If you are looking for a Everlast punching bag stand you should definitely read the reviews. Each stand has it’s advantages and disadvantages, which we discuss in detail below.

2 Station Everlast Heavy Bag Stand

everlast heavy bag standThe 2 Station Everlast Heavy Bag Stand is a rugged steel constructed stand designed to hang both a heavy bag and a speed bag. It weighs approximately 72.2 pounds without any bags or added weight. It is relatively easy to assemble. There are 3 pegs on the base that need added weight plates in order to prevent it from sliding around the training or tipping over while in use. You can also bold the stand to the floor. The stand is designed to hold punching bags up to 100 pounds.

Using this Everlast punching bag stand to hit a hanging bag is ideal for working in increasing your punching power and testing your conditioning and endurance. Of course, like all punching bag stands, it’s not great to use if you want to practice changing angles or circling an opponent. This is because you don’t have complete 360 degree access to the entire bag due to the stand restricting movement. Overall we think this stand is pretty good and comes in at a decent price point.

Everlast MMA Omnistrike Heavy Bag Stand

everlast mma omnistrike standThe Everlast MMA Omnistrike Heavy Bag Stand is made from steel and can hold a heavy bag weighing up to about 100 pounds. The stand itself weighs approximately 54 pounds without any bags or added weights. Like other punching bag stands, it also has 3 base pegs intended to put weight plates on in order to ensure stability. It features a pull up bar on the opposite side from the heavy bag, adding an extra dimension to training routines.

What separates the Omnistrike Heavy Bag Stand is that the hanging mechanism allows for the heavy bag to be easily detached and reattached. MMA athletes will especially appreciate this feature, as it allows the striker to quickly bring the heavy bag to the floor and work MMA style ground-and-pound drills and then easily reattach to the stand and continue using it as a traditional heavy bag.

The weight pins are arranged in such a way as to allow the striker to kick without concern for a stray toe hitting the steel or a weight plate. This leads to a small issue, however, in that the pegs are closer to the supporting beams than on other punching bag stands. This means that the weight plates cannot be too large or else they will rub on the support beams or not fit. Thus, you will need more smaller weight plates when using this stand. The Everlast MMA Omnistrike stand is a solid, well designed, and dynamic product designed with the aspiring MMA fighter in mind and we highly recommend it to this crowd.

Everlast Heavy Bag Stand

heavy bag standThe Everlast Heavy Bag Stand is made out of heavy duty, powder coated steel tubing. It is easy to assemble and can hold a heavy bag up to 100 lbs. The stand itself comes in at about 55 pounds. Like other stands, there are 3 pegs on which to put weight plates to add stability. You will need to purchase the weights separately, so keep this in mind.

This Everlast punching bag stand is one of the more basic stands, and it doesn’t have any additional features such as a speed bag platform or chin-up bar. As such, it tends to be way less expensive than any of the other models, like the Omnistrike or the 2 Station Stand that we reviewed above. This set up is fine for many users, so if you are just looking for a stand with basic features then this is a good choice.

The stand is a well constructed and durable an is built to last a long time. Using a bag on this stand is ideal for developing power and training endurance, however like most heavy bag stands it limits the ability to work angles and footwork, as the striker does not have access to the full 360 degrees of the bag. There’s not much more to be said about this product other than it’s a good basic choice at a decent price. If you are looking for a basic, cost effective, durable heavy bag stand then we definitely think you should check it out.

A heavy bag stand is a must for people who want to hit a heavy bag but lack a suitable location for hanging them. We recommend purchasing a stand if you are unable to install an ceiling mounted hanging device because of high ceilings or structural limitations.

Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform

heavy bag standThe Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform is a steel constructed stand that can hold both a heavy bag and a speed bag. The stand weighs about 79 pounds without any bags hanging from it. While the heavy bag hanging component is not height adjustable, the speed bag hanging component adjusts between 67 and 79 inches and operates on a ball bearing swivel allowing for quick action.

The stand has 3 pegs at the ground level that you can put weight plates in order to stabilize the stand. Unless you plan on bolting the stand to the floor, these plates are an absolute necessity, as the entire platform would move around the floor or even tip over if you were to use a heavy bag without them. This can be a drawback for some customers, simply because weight plates are an expensive investment for those who do not already own them. Once stabilized, hitting a heavy bag hanging from the Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform is good for developing power and cardio fitness, however the bag lacks the dynamism of a regular hanging heavy bag as you do not have the ability to circle the bag or work angles into your routine.

Hitting a speed bag hanging from the platform is good for training, since a speed bag should be a more stationary target anyway. The Century Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Platform is a solid, well-constructed piece of equipment that should last a long time.  We really like Century products and recommend it to those who want a quality stand and don’t mind the investment.

Everlast 2 Station Heavy Bag Stand

everlast heavy bag standThe Everlast 2 Station Heavy Bag Stand is a steel constructed stand designed to hold both a heavy bag and a speed bag. The stand weighs 72.2 pounds without any bags or added weight. It is constructed of steel and is easy to assemble. It has 3 pegs on the base that require added weight plates in order to prevent the stand from moving around the floor or tipping over while in use.

This bag can support heavy bags up to 100 pounds. It can also be bolted to the floor. Hitting a heavy bag hanging from the stand is ideal for developing power in your punches and working on your endurance. However, it is not ideal for strategic training purposes as it does not allow for angle changes and circling.

A common complaint about this product is that the speed bag component, which is made of particle wood, is not particularly durable and starts to chip and degrade with heavy use. Another common complaint is that the swivel is not well constructed, which prevents the speed bag from swinging properly, so many customers replace it with a swivel from a different company. Overall we think this product is decent and if you are set on an Everlast product it is a fine choice.

Title Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Stand

title punching bag standThe Title Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Stand is constructed from heavy duty 1.5mm square tube steel, has a steel I-bolt for hanging a heavy bag and a platform for a speed bag. It is 80 lbs without a bag. The stand can hold a heavy bag weighing up to 100 lbs and is height adjustable and fits well in rooms with 8 ft ceilings or higher.

Unlike other combined Heavy Bag/Speed Bag Stands, the Title stand has 4 pegs on the base on which you need to place plate weights in order to add to the stability of the bag, which ensures that the stand does not move around the training area when in use. Once mounted, the Title Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Stand is most effective for developing power and aerobic fitness, however is not an ideal training scenario for people who wish to train their foot work, take angles, or even kick, as a stray toe might connect with the hard steel base and lead to injury.

We think the speed bag platform and swivel are well constructed and durable, meaning that this should be a long lasting product. The Title Heavy Bag and Speed Bag Stand tends to be cheaper than comparable products from Everlast or Century, making it a sound investment for anybody interested in heavy bag and speed bag workouts without modification to the training area. As a result, we give this product a solid recommendation and think this stand is a good choice.
