want to install punching bag


i live in a bungalo house, i want to put a punching bag up. I think the bag weighs 150 lbs. i live on the main floor with the attic in the ceiling. Can the joists support the bag or do i have to put more support?

they will support 150lbs. they will however deflect under the weight, creating cracks/nail pops. if you're concerned about that, throw something in the attic to carry the load.
