I am going to be hanging a 100lb heavy bag from the basement floor joists and am wondering what is the best way to distribute the weight. The bag will be hung using the hanger in the picture. Methods I thught of are:
1- lag bolt a 2x4 that spans 3 or 4 of the joists then attach the hanger to the 2x4, either between two joists with bolts and nuts or directly under and into a joist with lags.
2- lag bolt a 2x4 in line with a joist and lag bolt the hanger into the 2X4 and joist.
What do you thinkk?
