In this article we will be reviewing the Dripex Freestanding Punching Bag. Dripex is owned by Robustsport, a company which focuses on at home work out equipment, and also owns another fitness brand: Yoleo. As a well-known fitness brand in the US and UK, their product lines include exercise bikes, sports and recreation products, and of course, punching bags.
Dripex Freestanding Punching Bag
Working out from home has always been a struggle for people, especially during these times with the pandemic. There are a lot of different at home gym products such as elastic bands, weights, and exercise bikes that offer great solutions to those who want to begin working out from home, but these can get very repetitive after a while. This is why I definitely recommend expanding your at home gym equipment inventory with something exactly like this Dripex Freestanding Punching Bag. This allows you to work on punching power, boxing technique and movement, and gives a killer cardio workout all in one. This type of equipment allows you to really expand your day to day at home workouts.
The Dripex Freestanding Punching Bag has gotten a great reputation for a long list of reasons. While we would definitely recommend pairing these with some sort of MMA Training Gloves or Boxing Gloves, the shock absorption system does a great job on its own at minimizing the stress and force transferred to on your hands with no training gloves. It is made of high-rebound and durable materials make punching much more pleasant than hitting a heavy bag. The bottom consists of 18 strong suction cups along with a base filled with recommended water and sand, ensuring a sturdy system. This is just a recommendation, any user can fill it with any amount of water and sand they see fit for their training. If you want a sturdier base, you would want to go with more sand, and vice versa with water. On top of this, the leather material is very easy to clean by simply wiping it down.
Another great feature is that the bag is held up by tensioned springs. Most of the punching bags people see are the very heavy ones held up by chains. If you’ve hit these before, you know they can get very noisy and are not well suited for at home use. The tensioned springs on this Dripex Punching Bag are great shock absorbers and are very quiet, so you can work out at home without disturbing friends and family members. At the same time, the springs ensure the force you apply to the bag is evenly spread, preventing you from receiving a hard knock back from the bag.
Overall, with a very smooth delivery in two separate boxes, and an easy to put together system, this Dripex Punching Bag is a great buy for anyone at any level of training. Mixing in punches, kicks, elbows, and different types of footwork/ movement will give you a high intensity workout every time. We love it, and every other review we’ve seen of the product gives the same great feedback.
Dripex Heavy Bag FAQ
In this section, we like to answer some of the most frequently asked questions from users about Dripex Punching Bags.
Are Dripex free standing punch bags good?
To answer the question in one word: yes. The Dripex Freestanding Punching Bag is a great product for training. It offers a more responsive rebound and is much safer on your hands than heavier bags. At the same time, the sand and water filled bases are much sturdier and more durable. They allow for very easy movement after you put the system together, unlike punching bags you have to hang from your ceiling. This means you can work out anywhere in your house at any time.
What is the best Dripex freestanding boxing bag?
The Dripex Freestanding Punching is one of the top sellers in its market and has gotten great reviews all across the board. One thing that sets it apart from other freestanding boxing bags is the suction cups on the base. These provide an extra layer of base support separate from the sand and water that are contained in the base.
What is the best filling for a punching bag?
This is a very commonly asked question because people are always wondering how heavy they should make their base. The first question you have to ask yourself is how hard you will be hitting the punching bag. If your punching power is relatively weak, then there is absolutely no need to fill the bottom with pounds of sand to hold it down. Filling the base with something lighter such as water makes the overall system much lighter, allowing you to move it around easier. On the other hand, if you are a much stronger puncher, you do not want the Freestanding Punching Bag’s base to move every time you throw a hard punch. In this case, we would recommend filling it with a combination of sand and water, making it heavy enough where movement does not occur. Again, the Dripex Freestanding Punching Bag also comes with base suction cups which will resist any movement, so you do not have to make the base as heavy.
Can I kick a Dripex punching bag?
Absolutely! You can throw any combination you want at these punching bags. I personally mix in punches, elbows, knees and kicks to give myself the most diverse workout I can. Throwing these strikes in different combinations keeps the workout at high intensity and allows you to target all areas of your body during your workout. At the same time, the practice will help you with your strike dynamics and you will notice yourself getting better and better at these strikes with every workout.
