Wanting tobuild my own boxing bag stand


Im trying to price which is cheaper, buying a boxing stand for a heavy bag or just making one.

I have a huge back yard, and am thinking of just sticking some 4x4x12's in the ground about 4 feet deep, cementing them inplace...then connecting all 4 of them at the middle then at the top, so it resembles a large table structure, with no table top just the frame.

then I am just going to connect maybe a 6.6 across the center of 2 of those beems, so that at the very center I can hang a 100 lb heavy boxing bag to punch.

In theory this sounds like it should work...
the 4x4' should be able to maintain the weight of a 6x6 and the 100 lb bag with me hitting it, shouldnt it?

Does anyone have an experience in this?

basically picture this below

" "
<<<< (4) 4'x4'x12' -- that will be cemented into ground
" "

| . . . . . . . . . . . .| <<<< The top view of 4'x4'x8's
| . . . . . . . . . . . .|
x-----------------x

| . . . . . . . . . . . .|
| =====O====== | <<<< center 6x6x8 that runs from middle one side
| . . . . . . . . . . . .| to middle over other side
x-----------------x

0 = Boxing heavy bag hangs here in the center connected to the 6x6

Now, will the weight of the structure be able to maintain this or do I need to rethink my assembly?

I didn't engineer your design but my opinion is yes, it will service the intended use. I have a 100 pound heavy bag hanging from a manufactured metal frame that rests on the floor. You have probably seen these, it has a speed bag on one side and the heavy bag opposite that. There are three pegs on the base that provide for weight plates to be added, with 300 pounds of wieght added to the base it doesn't move much. Your frame will be much stronger than that. Make sure that the connections are all with through bolts and not nailed, make sure your material has no unusually large knots. Good Luck.
