Product Description

Product Description

Work the entire upper body with this realistic heavy bag! Body Opponent Heavy Bags are excellent, realistic and life-like heavybags. Excellent for home, apartment, school, and aerobic boxing. Perfect every punch and kick in your arsenal. Punch to the face, chin, body ... anywhere you'd hit your opponent. Now even more realistic for a variety of techniques. Base fills with approx. 270 lbs. of sand or water for solid and sturdy use. Made of high strength plastisol filled with urethane foam for durability. Adjustable height to accomodate multiple users. Base is rounded for easy roll location.


Work the entire upper body with the extra-large Century Body Opponent freestanding heavy bag. Unlike most heavy bags, the Body Opponent looks like an actual person, with a life-like face, shoulders, chest, and stomach. As a result, it's easier than ever to get motivated for your sparring session, with a long torso creating more striking surface for body shot training. The bag is made of high-strength plastisol filled with urethane foam, making it extremely durable over time. It's also stable, with a polyethylene base that fills with approximately 270 pounds of sand or water. Despite the weight, you can still move the bag fairly easily by flipping it to the side and rolling the round base. Equipped with multiple height settings, the Body Opponent bag is ideal for home, apartment, school, or gym use.

By Barry Kavanagh on October 2, 2009
I searched the Internet for weeks looking for a freestanding punch bag, I wanted a human shaped bag because it allowed me to practice strikes to vital areas of the body, one of my friends has a human shaped bag made of hard plastic which hurts a lot when you punch it and I was a little worried this bag would be the same.

I checked out some You Tube clips of the Bob bag and it looked really good so I made a purchase, the Bob bag arrived in 4 days. The Bob bag is very broad like a heavyweight boxer, much wider than I expected, when you stand face to face with Bob psychologically because of its size, build and angry face it feels more like you are going into a fight with someone way more powerful than you, which I guess at 6 feet and 300 pounds with no fat would be true.

Bobs skin is really weird, it does not feel like rubber but feels very similar to human flesh, it's soft like ballistics gel but flexes like rubber,it doesn't have the horrible dirty rubber smell, Bobs muscles are also really weird, I thought from the photos they were just little indentations but its a full mold with the muscle sticking out very realistically like someone had just painted a bodybuilder pink. When my dog first saw Bob he thought it was real person, starting barking at it and biting its torso,so he wasn't the only dummy in the room but once he got a sniff he knew it was real.

Bob was comfortable enough for me to punch without the gloves and I am not a boxer. I adjusted Bob to the full 6 feet in height and one thing that I thought was great is that the dummy doesn't rattle as the torso fits perfectly into the stand.

The gloves that came with bob had gel filled knuckles; they look cheap but are very comfortable and allow your hands to breath in long work outs.

I use my Bob XL as part of my cardio fitness routine. It's very easy to raise your heart rate with fast punches and combos to poor old Bob.
Mine is located in the garage and is filled with sand and then when i couldn't fit any more sand in i topped off with water. Took a good 2 hours to fill with sand due to the small fill cap, would have been easier if i had had dry, free flowing sand.
It is extremely heavy, i can barely push it along the floor so i wouldn't recommend it if you need to regularly move it out of the way.
I weigh 215 lbs, can bench 315lbs and I can't get it to budge with hard punches. It sits on a concrete floor, may be different on a polished wood surface.
I recommend this model over the standard Bob, it's heavier and has more target areas to hit.
I would advise wearing bag mitts when hitting Bob with any force, especially due to the moulding of the face it is easy to bruise knuckles.
If you are into martial arts/boxing then nothing can replace a decent heavy punch bag for developing punch power but for average hitters like myself or for those who need a quality fitness workout then the Bob Xl comes highly recommended!

I own two of these BOB's (Body Opponent Bag) one BOB & one BOB XL. They are great to practice striking specific areas of the body at full power and speed. BOB is a great addition to the heavy bag or better yet Muay Thai bag that every martial artist should own and practice techniques against.

The BOB XL allows strikes to the upper leg area with kicks, knees and batons for police academy recruit training. The only limit is working the body all the way around 360 degrees, you can not work the rear body, but can work the rear of the head for chokes and strikes.

Verified Purchase
Six foot, 250lb, Ten years taekwondo, six years bouncing, and eight years as a police officer. This is just to put into perspective the person reviewing this product. No. 1, it's expensive, once you get that out of the way it's nothing but positive. I purchased the Bob xl about a month ago and held off from reviewing right away. I've used Bob extensively now and am still impressed. Arrived in two boxes and set very easily. Hardest part is getting 75lbs of sand in a three inch hole in the base. Several hours later you get to play with bob. The bob xl has more coverage than the regular bob (around the back and spine) so you can circle and work from different angles. LIttle hard punching the kidneys, (less material) but still able to work full force. I put all I had into Bob, he never toppled or ripped. On thing to remember if using gloves you could get some transfer on bob, had to scrub for a bit but it comes off. The extra padding allows for some groundfighting opptions if you chose to take bob off the base. Bob and his base are loud if you don't put him on some type of pad or carpet. Bob's nose is really hard. Non-gloved punches to the face are unforgiving on the knuckles. Bob is way more flexible than a hanging bag, so you don't get the satisfying thud of punching the heavy bag, but he is awesome for accuracy training and those that can't hang a bag in their home. Lastly, bob feels and acts like hitting a real person. His head moves when struck and his "skin" gives a little.
I have really enjoyed having Bob and Highly recommend this product. I've even added arms to mine for more training options using a tight sweatshirt and a large pool noodle.
