Default Should I hit the heavy bag...

..without bag gloves on, just wraps?

I ask because well i'm only starting out training really and after a few weeks I realised that I far prefer to hit it without the gloves. I find I get tired very quick with them on and my form suffers, without the gloves I feel fluid and fast and can carry on punching for quite awhile, putting together combos.

I'm not asking if its a bad idea because of my hand health, I don't overdo the power anyway, more concentrating on speed and combinations (pitty pat style). What i'm not sure about is the health of the bag. Its a 40kg leather Everlast and cost me a not insignifact sum of cash, so I dont want to damage it (I do occasionally put the power shots in).

Thanks for any advice
