Re: best muscles to work out for punching power
What do you guys think about jumping squats?
I know it sounds dangerous (if you do it with a barbell), but I actually have been doing them recently with a 40 lb water bag on my shoulders. It's not very heavy, but the jump actually adds a great degree of resistance. I do about 20 and it adds some nice challenge and variety to my regular core & legs strength training.
I'm sure there's some benefit, but since I made it up and am not an expert - I was just wondering if the benefits were better/worse/similar to doing slow heavy squats.
