  • My New Setup!

    Hey All! Excited to join the Community!

    Setup is finally complete after waiting for everything to come in the mail to Canada. (And paying duties on much of it ) But now that it's done I'm excited to start bagging again.

    Had a regular bag in a barn when I was a kid and just did some basic stuff. Went down the rabbit hole like many here on how much bible bagging has to offer. Love the high ceiling of skill acquisition to keep me interested for a long time.

    SETUP:
    - 2x12s with lag bolts into cinder blocks and Rafter wood. Platform bolted to the 2x12s
    - 1.5 inch butcher block adjustable platform with 50lbs of sand on top
    - firstlaw fitness ball and hook swivel
    - 4 Title Boxing Super Speed Bags from 5x8 to 8x11 and the 5x7 title lighting bag - heavy bag mount to hold my bags, broom hand mount to hold my bag pump, and a hook for my ring and watch while bagging

    It's VERY overkill I know, but I don't like to half ass and redo things later. My only complaint on this setup is the platform is close to the frame making it difficult for reverse hits especially with the larger bags. But this setup should do me very well for quite some time.

    My biggest problem now is that my arms burn out in 5 minutes at the moment being so new! hahaha. Have to go out like 3 to 5 times a day just to do it for 15 minutes.... hopefully that's something that adjusts quick and I can do it for longer.

    Wish me and my sissy shoulders luck!

        Ginger, really beautiful set-up. Like the fact that you used lag bolts w/ washers into the concrete blocks (really solid). Be careful of the bolts in the sill plate, great way to go again (really solid) but they can transmit vibrations through the walls. Really nice job.

          Had to go up into the rafters a bit due to the low ceiling. Mounting on just the blocks the platform was too low since I'm 6-2 and have some taller friends.

          What kind of issue can the vibrations cause from having some of the lags into the sill?

            Your wife screaming at you to stop because the plastered walls are cracking in your bedroom. Yup, that was me. However in all fairness I have mounted on the floor rafters. Great experience because I ended up building a great stand - a - lone set-up.

              ok you had me worried something more serious. Luckily this is just in my garage so no worries there.

                Yours looks fine only had two bolts in it and the bottom arrangement of bolt in the blocks was prefect, looked really sound. Enjoy the bagging, I'm sure you will find it is a really great place to go to exercise the body in a challenging way, but just as importantly clear the head and refreshed the mind. Good to hear from you, ENJOY

                  Great set-up! I think this is the solution I have been looking for, my platform is a few inches too tall.
                  Cant wait to get home and see if this will give me enough room.
                  Thank you for your idea and the photos.
