Stage 2


Boxing Gloves

Wondering what size gloves to get? Here’sa rule of thumb I go by:

If you weigh 155 lbs. or less get 14 oz. gloves

155 lbs. to 185 lbs. get 16 oz. gloves

185 lbs. to 200 lbs. can be either 16 oz. or 18 oz. (Your training partners will appreciate 18 oz.)

200 lbs. or more get 18 oz. gloves

Boxing gloves are meant to protect your hand and your partners head. If you are using a lighter glove then you will have to pull your punches more to prevent either of you from injuries. Having a heaver glove will let you strike closer to your full potential and help prevent some bad habits.

Head Gear

Personally I have never used head gear. This will be an individual preference.
