Century Tidal Wave Hydrocore Review

Century Tidal Wave Hydrocore Heavy Bag Review

It you want to experience the benefits of working out with a water filled heavy bag, you should consider Century tidal wave.

Most professional MMA trainers prefer punching bags that you can be able to fill with water because water is readily available and does not involve many technicalities like other filler materials such as sand.

This is a great punch bag that provides you with a realistic feel when working out. This is because you feel as if you are fighting a real opponent.

The punching bag gives you a good experience when working out as it is made of durable vinyl outer shell. Moreover, it does not cause fatigue like most traditional bags do.

One of the things that we did not like about this bag is the fact that it hangs low. Also, it is hard to make an adjustment with the bag since it uses chains instead of straps.
