Default Re: best muscles to work out for punching power

I know for myself that when I lift biceps heavy I have found my arms tighten up. You might say that is just anecdotal, but I have heard plenty of others say that as well.
No you ****ing idiot, you said don't do biceps then in the same sentence you say do pull downs and rows (Both work your biceps). So why isolate the triceps and and do lat raises as well? I know for myself that almost everything you say is complete nonsense. Your biceps are extremely important in boxing, without them you wouldn't be able to defend yourself, transfer power into your hooks and uppercuts, or pull your hands back after punching. I don't care about your re**** anecdotes, every muscle is important. Go back to beating up kids fat boy
