Re: Punching power and buttock size/strength. How important are the glutes?
I don't it has a factor in punching power. The butt?? I would say more the abdominal muscles and the ability to turn the waist to land a body punch or hook. Or the calf. It all works together. I remember Emanuel Steward talking about Hearns punching power as sharpness and leverage. Saying he taught Tommy at the instant he lands a punch tight his grip and lock the elbow and arm and shirt the weight forward all at the same time.
