3 Great Tips To Improve The Power of Your Punches

When seeking for some kind of magical cure that will enable you to punch harder, you’ve come to the right place… “S.O.L.” is the only way I know how to pronounce it. We’ve all experienced the frustration of seeing a new guy walk into the gym and demonstrate incredible natural knockout power despite the fact that he has no prior training. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about it; some people are simply born with “freak” power, and if you aren’t one of “them,” you’ll have to put in the effort to achieve that power like the rest of us. –

There are a number of fundamental things that you can do to boost the strength of your punches that most people overlook or overlook completely. They are presumably ignored because they are tedious, but, regrettably, there is no practical way around them at this time.

Get the Mechanics Right.

If you want to have knockout power, the first thing you need do is do that. Before you can learn how to deliver deadly blows, you must first learn how to throw a good punch.

When Wanderlei Silva does it, swinging for the fences may seem to be a smart idea, but unless you have the whole Chute Boxe old school arsenal, it is unlikely to be sufficient. When you throw a punch, you must be very cautious to use your whole body in the strike. Aside from that, you won’t be able to do much damage, and an arm punch is often a weak punch.

Everything should get involved, from your legs to your hips, torso, shoulder and elbow. And there are so many details involved it will take you a while to get them right. But when you do, everyone will fear your hands, and it will be worth it.

Get Strong And Well-Rounded.

Power is a key attribute in fighting sports, and it also translates to the power of your punches. Unfortunately, if you train like a bodybuilder, you won’t be able to hit like a boxer. You need a training program designed for fighting sports, rather than a general strength and conditioning routine.

You need to have a strong core first, especially if you fight MMA, and then work on your overall strength. Punching is an explosive movement, and you will need to work out accordingly, in order to develop explosive power.

Use compound exercises rather than isolation exercises, and get strong everywhere. You might not like to train one muscle group or another, but you still have to do it in order to reach your goals.

The Heavy Bag Is Your Best Friend.

If you don’t practice over and over again, your punching power will not improve. The heavy bag will help you a lot and by hitting it, you will learn how to appreciate the distance and how to correct your posture and technique in order to throw good punches.

If something’s missing from your posture, the heavy bag will let you know. You can feel and hear when you hit it right, as well as when you hit it wrong.

If you train MMA, standing up and hitting the bag won’t be enough. You also have to practice some ground positions, as hitting an opponent from your knees is a whole different thing. The mechanics are different and on the ground you might not be as strong as you thought. You can put the heavy bag on the floor and hit it, while constantly trying to switch positions. Keeping your balance on the ground is difficult and without the proper drills and exercises, you won’t be able to deliver those powerful punches and you will get swept or submitted.
