Hello, I just was wondering.. I have a little apt.;
and I always wanted to go to a gym where
there is punching bags ( and have). I can't
afford to go-as often and is out of my way.
How can I hoist a dufflebag over one side of my room?
The dufflebag would be full of material inside.
It would be there for the purpose of me punching and
kicking the object without it moving so much.
Does anyone have any ideas in how I can do this?
Thanks for reading this!

In an apartment, it may not be possible to mount an eyelet to the ceiling, but if it is, then use an eyelet and screw it into the wood joists of the ceiling in the room you wish to mount the bag.

Then take 3/8 or 1/2 inch rope, and fasten it to the bag, and a tie off, like a boat tie on a dock, to a wall.

If you do not have wood, then it would need to be cement fasteners through the drywall.

If you cannot mount to the walls or ceiling, then you would need to make a frame from metal or wood, a structure that would be stable enough to absorb the energy of a punch or kick.

Finally, you may wish to use a heavy bottomed punching bag, one that is in a frame, and sits of the floor.

These are some ideas, I know you will come up with what is right for you, let me know, ok?
