are best? Ideally I am looking for a pair that allow me to concentrate more on using the palm heel rather than the fist.

I would prefare ones that allow me to practice shredding/ripping so that would mean open fingered.

Is it pointless to get a pair that are heavily padded, in other word in order to create a more realistic element should I opt for a pair with minimum padding?

I would like to work without gloves but as it happens the club wont allow that.

Any advice is welcome. Thanks

Hello,

Using minimum padding on a heavy bag is not a good idea. This will result in

Damaged wrist joints

Arthritis in the fingers

Damaged bones and joints.

When training with a bag - you should be working on your speed agility and effective target practice.  It is not to create a real life situation?.

A good 7-12lb gloves and very sufficeint. you can still use palm strike etc.

I use 12 oz boxing gloves and hand wraps, always best to protect your hands, don't let anyone tell you'll soften your hands, hitting a heavy bag 500 times is very different to any real life situation.

Cool thats good advice...you see people in the gym doing it with no gloves and initially I thought maybe that was the best idea (to make the hands hard)...
