6ft tall Punching Bag Stand in Small Space

We want to build a stable, strong hanging system for our 6ft tall punching bag in a small apartment. This is attempt #2. The 1st one pulled part of the wall off. It must be strong enough to withstand hard punches & kicks from a 6ft3in 220lb man.

The Dimensions Available

We have a 105in tall by 40in wide wall space in which to build. It has a stud running up the right side of it but not the left. We also have 56in out into the room to build into.

Our Knowledge & Capabilities

My boyfriend has a background in construction. We have basic building tools. We are willing to work hard to make this happen.

What We Want

  1. Any suggestions to either improve our 1st system or to create a new system that will be stronger and better.
  2. Any system that does not destroy our apartment wall is strongly preferred.
  3. This system is in our living room (which is not ideal). So, I would personally prefer something that is as unobtrusive as possible (not my boyfriend’s main concern).

The photos show the current system we built. It allows shows how and where it is pulling away from the wall. And it shows all of the stuff in the way. And lastly there is a pic of me ready to punch to bag.
