You Can Easily Build a Heavy Bag Anywhere – Here’s How

Join Revgear creative director Alex Wright as he shows you how to fix a common problem and build a heavy bag anywhere you like

Following on from part 1 of Coach Eddie Needs a Heavy Bag, part 2 gets gown to the nitty gritty of how to build a heavy bag no matter where you are. Whether you don’t have the space for a heavy bag or you can’t do it without angering your landlord, Alex has an elegant solution for your problem.

All you will need is a bullseye target, focus mitts and some bungee cords. You just need to find a pole, or a tree, or anything upright from a street sign to a porch pillar. Then you can strap the bullseye target to the middle, and the focus mitts at head height. Grab a pair of gloves and you are good to go.

There are a few very expensive pieces of kit on the market today that work in a similar way. This is an affordable and effective alternative. You can take the equipment with you and build a heavy bag anywhere, taking it with you when you are done. It is also super easy to adjust the pads as you go, because they are attached with bungee cords, giving you the ability to switch up what you are working without having to take it all apart and set it up again.

You can build a heavy bag and get going without needing to spend a lot of money and without having to find a permanent place for it.
