I think I need better gloves to use for heavy bag training.
I'm taking Krav Maga, and the cheapo "UFC" gloves I got aren't protecting my fingers quite enough.
After any serious session, I end up with bloody 2nd knuckles, mostly on my right hand index finger. This is a problem, because my day job entails a lot of typing.
Now I recognize that form is important, and I have corrected the elements of form that resulted in my ring and pinky fingers getting messed up. But the way my hand is constructed, I just can't seem to get my index finger tucked under far enough that it is out of harm's way.
So this is really a two part question:
1. How do people keep their knuckles from getting beat all to hell when doing vigorous heavy bag training?
2. What are some better gloves that would protect my hand better? Or should I be taping my fingers or something?
Edit: This is the bag I have, incidentally. It's 100#
