This is the Bob freestanding dummy. It has a similar anatomy to an actual human being, built with a jaw, a temple, and a torso. But for an added fee, you can get a set of arms for it. And it’s these traits that make it an excellent addition to your gym equipment. 

Of course, everything comes with a price, and Bob’s is costly. Some people consider the number on the tag worth a small fortune. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the Bob isn’t a practical purchase. 

If you’re the least interested in martial arts and self-defense, consider getting yourself a Bob. And in this article, you will see why it could be a sound investment. 

The Body Opponent Bag: A Viable Freestanding Dummy 

We briefly ran through some of Bob’s best traits. But in this section, we’re doing a deep dive to see some of the benefits of owning one. 

Added Realism

Its features set the Bob freestanding dummy apart from a punching bag. The facial and bodily structure gives you a better look at the target. You can see where the eyes are or that perfect spot on the bridge of the nose. 

The added realism makes for a practical training session, whether it’s for a self-defense situation or a combat sports setting. Jabs to the eye socket and elbow strikes to the jaw become more accurate.
