How to Hang a Heavy Bag From a Pull Up Bar

Save

If you're pressed for space but still want to get a workout using a punching bag, you can rig up a quick, space-saving fix. If you already have a pull-up bar, this guide will turn your pull-up bar into a multi-exercise device. A punching bag is good for cardio, improving hand-eye coordination and reaction times. You don't need to be a boxer or have a large room to get the benefits of a punching bag.

Things You'll Need

  • Carabiner Clips (or mountain climbing clips)
  • Canvas car straps (lashing straps with buckles)
  • Check to ensure the pull-up bar is firmly in place. Hang from the bar by your hands for a few seconds to test the bar stability.

  • Attach a carabiner clip to each of the metal hanging loops on the top of the punching bag.

  • Make a loop out of the one car strap and secure the loop around the pull-up bar, feeding the loose end of the strap through one of the carabiner clips. Tighten the strap buckle to secure the strap. Repeat these steps with the other strap and clip.

  • Adjust the strap buckles as needed to bring the punching bag higher or lower.

  • Readjust the punching bag after workouts as needed by lifting the bag gently and sliding the straps on the bar left or right to reposition.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be careful when the bag swings back towards you after punching it.
  • Always consult a doctor before starting a new workout routine.
