Shows how we hung my 165 pound thai banana bag in my house with normal crappy 2x4" construction and the boards are 24" apart.
My garage has a finished ceiling and basic 2x4 construction and the 2x4's are 24" apart. We had to reinforce the location where we would be mounting the bag so that we didn't screw the house up.

We used two sections of 4x4" mounted in between two "rafters" (mounted using the metal 4x4 frame mounting things from home depot), Then we drilled a hole in the center of a 4x4, mounted a 1/2"diameter (about 12" long) eye bolt with a nylock nut and big washers to the 4x4. Then we nailed in a 2x6" across the top of the 4x4's for more support.

Finally we nailed in two, 2x4's going from the horizontal "rafters" or "cords" to the diagonal cords. These are shown in the video as the two 2x4's going straight up.

We used a 300# spring to mount the bag to the eye bolt. It is one of those outdoor sitting swings springs.

My fiance does say she can hear some noise in the kitchen but that is it. I lived in this house for another 2 years and trained 2-3x per week and never had any damage to the drywall or frame.

We got the spring from a hardware store. The straps attach to d rings which attach to a big caribener type clip then the spring.

The bag says proboxingequpiment.com I got it from my trainer Paul Metayo who runs http://www.arizonamuaythai.com/
