Tips on choosing the right punching bag for you

With 2018 just around the corner, I’m sure you have already made your plans for the upcoming year. From New Year’s resolutions like losing weight and practicing more sport to more specific goals like going to a certain trip or buying a new car, we all have something that motivates our lives. But practicing more sport shouldn’t be linked to a simple resolution. On the contrary, you should make the most of the free time you have and start improving your physical condition now.

Although picking up a new sport can be a bit complicated, starting with smaller steps like running and a few cardio exercises could help you get back on the track right now. I like to combine my fitness and cardio routine with a few quick sessions of punching to release all the anger, diminish stress, and improve my kicks and self-defense techniques. So here is everything you need to know about punching bags.

Choosing the right size and weight

If you want to buy a new punching bag you should start by deciding the best weight and size for you. Depending on the intensity of your training, as well as your personal strength, you may want to choose a lighter or heavier punch bag.

If you’re a kicker or a boxer, you most definitely have to appeal to a heavier punch bag, preferably filled with sand or hard materials so that you can improve your kicks and your strength.

On the contrary, if you’re a petite person or have just started training, we suggest opting for lighter punching bags or even punching pillows. These are softer, can be hit with your bare hands or with gloves, and won’t hurt your knuckles as much as regular punching bags.

It is also important to adjust the height of your punching bag according to your own needs. Most of these bags you find in gyms come with adjustable straps or chains so they can fit almost all trainees. Make sure the hardest part of the bag corresponds to the size of your arms.

Did anyone say maize bag?

Unlike regular heavy bags, the maize bags come with a teardrop shape and are filled with maize inside. This makes them a little bit more lightweight, but still hard enough to perform high-quality training. If you’re working on your uppercut kicks, this type of punching bag is perfect for you. Moreover, the great advantage of these is that they can swing, allowing you to feel the intensity of your kick and see the actual response when striking.

There are plenty of cool punching bags to choose from, depending on the budget, so make sure to do a full research before purchasing a certain item.

How good are Soundbar Speakers?

Since there are a lot of new products available on the market (especially when we talk about gadgets), well of course, home gadgets won’t come in last. When we talk about the speakers that we connect to our TV, there are a lot of good choices, but the question is- what is the best option?

There are a lot of possible things that you may want to connect to your TV to give you the best experience a motion picture can ever give; home cinema systems, surround sound systems and sound bar speakers. If you are familiar with the 5.1 arrangement, then this is what home cinema is. Home cinema systems are composed of five speakers, three front speakers (left, right and center) and two rear speakers. So this means a lot of wires connecting to your TV all around your living room. However, there are Home Cinema Systems available, that are wireless. So you will save all the trouble of tangled wires all over the house. Surround sound systems are almost the same with the Home Cinema System (with all the speakers and wires) except the DVD or Blu-ray player which eventually gives you more space but less features.

Now, why do we say that Sound Bar Speakers are the best choice? Because all the speakers and subwoofer are enclosed in one rectangular and high quality box. This saves all the tangled wires and gives you only two external wires: one of which should be attached to the TV and the other to the power outlet. Now you may wonder if you still have the chance to have the best audio quality- the answer is yes. Since, as an additional feature, Sound Bar systems have surround sound which means that the sound waves are electronically processed in order to create a virtually surround sound effect, also referred as the 3D feature. There are also other brands or other models that have subwoofers detached from the enclosed box.

Meaning it is wireless and all you have to do is to sync it to the soundbar and OLA! You can receive audio! Other people don’t want this since it is bulky and requires a bigger space compared to other sound systems but hey- let us also check other models. There are sound bar systems that can be attached to  the wall. So what are you waiting for? Get yours now. :

Why I like classical music

Depending upon the taste for the kind of music, it leaves its own impact upon a person. Like any other forms of art, music too, comes in diverse genres and forms that happen to be a matter of study for the music researchers and scholars. But, what turns out to be the most unique part of music is, its appeals to all. No matter whether an individual is an ardent lover of music or not music attracts every one. Ages back man created music with the simple sources and tools available to him and music became an integral part of the society. If you find the statement overrated just try to feel the symphony the nature created with its elements; try to sense the harmony of flowing water, the ocean tides, chirping birds, rustling leaves. Try to listen to the unheard melody of the pastures that only a hugely sensitive soul can relate to. Music is everywhere.


Amidst a variety of forms of music, classical music makes me feel the  most rejuvenated. To be honest I was not a passionate fan of classical music. My dad used to listen to classical music and ever since then I too matured with my sense for music. The glory and artistic call of classical renditions insisted me to delve into it.

It all started when I was of just fifteen years and my dad brought me to a concert of classical music. All I remember of the evening is the charm and the mesmerizing effect, my ears perceived, stirring my deep senses. You may not believe but the truth is, it was just a couple of hours and I felt at peace with the eloquent appeal of the reverberating rhythm. It was a tribute by Mozart to the nature. But, what captured my soul were the controlled modulation of the cords and an unprecedented flow of music.


It is a common practice for the contemporary music lovers to embrace light music over classical genre. The reason, behind it, is pretty clear. Light music can be effortlessly created by a common musician or vocalist with whom standard audience members can relate effortlessly. It communicates the sentiments of average people in their own particular dialect. But to relate to the classical music you need to understand the depth of its sincerity.

Apart from classical genre, any form of music has a definite start and a predictable end but when classical music starts to flow, at times the artist too flows with the magic being created through his art. The musical notes lead the artist and the audience to an unforeseen wonderland, from where returning back is agonizing.

Yes, since childhood I grew up listening to the classical renditions that helped to nurture my senses and beyond the horizon of my country. It helped me to merge with global music. When I explore into the different forms of melodies, phrasing, modulation and textures in classical music, I feel like a child awed by a magical trick, that he fails to fathom.



Tips for installing a home theater system

The dropping prices and latest technologies in TVs and audio systems have made the dream come true for the countless lovers for excellent taste in movie watching at home. TVs are going slimmer and the audio systems are growing powerful. Who will not want to have a perfect home theater right in the comfort of home?

So, before you jump on the home theater owner’s bandwagon, here are some tried and tested tips that will help you in getting the best out of this amazing gadget system.

Prepare the room

This is the preliminary step to bring home a home theater you have always dreamed of. You have kept a good budget aside for it, but consider equipping your room first. It included the right drapery; good couch and perfect conditioning of walls so that the sound effects are up to the mark. Get a dark colored covering of the walls so at the focus of the viewers remain on the screen.


Test the setup

If you hang the TV, stereo system, woofers, sound bars immediately after unpacking and then you make the circuits, then you are doing it all wrong. You must test all the circuits and connections before finalizing the positions of the components on the wall. Because if you do so, you may have to take out all the devices if some connection is not done correctly due to lack of improper view.


Use good quality connectors and cables

Purchasing a high-end home theater system needs the equally good connectors and cables. Do not try to save pennies here. Get the cables and connectors recommended by the brand of rest of the gadgets. These will ensure neat and dependable connections for the amazing experience that you have planned for. Label the connectors for easy identification in the whole mesh.

Get separate devices

If you are a person who prefers many in one device, then shake off such preferences, since we are talking about a home theater. Home theater is meant to touch different senses of viewers like vision and audio. Every beat should be clearly audible, every dialog should be crystal clear, the sound effects must be as clear as recorded and each color of the screen should define clarity. If you have no budget constraints go for separate video and audio processor, amplifier, and XM/FM/AM tuner installed in a proper rack system for convenient control of different aspects.

Every Home theater owner has his own preferences to make the installation. The points I have mentioned will help you in focusing on some of the basics and hope that they will help you in getting the perfection needed by you.

Enjoy your weekends in your home theater!
