If the Head is 15 Degrees, from where it naturally should be, it restricts Speed. Nothing is in Balance.

I'm not saying we all have speed ,,,I'm saying with a different why of thinking we can all get faster
Makes sense thanks.

Thanks.
dumbells won't work because you cannot practice handspeed correctly with them, how can you when you have to use more muscular tension while punching?

I like a lot of the comments on here. I have been told that I have an issue with retracting my hands after I punch. My friend who is an amateur says I get them there alright, but he would destroy my on the retract part. I just feel like I'm not throwing hard enough if I retract at such hugh speeds

What I find ironic, is speed is such a big topic, and rightfully so, but it's how people perceive speed.

Example: I can watch umpteen vids of mitt work, amateur and pro, and you'll mainly see most of their punches have a pump first, such that, before they go forward they go back a bit first, and/or off in another direction first. So their punch is "fast" but the whole punch sequence was not.

Many of the punches had a pump sequence that took about the same time as the forward punch itself.

Speed to me is, getting my punch to the target "fast" with as little tel' to the opponent as I can. All the tel' I give is actually part of the punch.

This. I believe speed is mainly an illusion. People's hand speed doesn't vary as much as many boxing fans believe. What does vary is the tell of the punch they are going to throw, and how they time it/throw it. It's basically technique.

You will get faster hand speed over time if you are a beginner, but it really levels off. It makes more sense to just focus on technique, rather than speed.

Technique is the most important thing is punching power, with a fluid fast movement. If you don't know how to punch properly, you won't punch properly when trying to be fast. Make it perfect, then make it fast.
Any rotational ab movement, any explosive throw or jump and most compound lifts like squats and jerks will help punching power.
For hand speed, the same thing goes as before, it is technical first, then you make it fluid and fast. Stiffness and trying too hard is what slows things down. Speed bag and floor to ceiling won't necessarily increase your handspeed, but they are good things to do.
