Default The best way to improve power

In my experience is perfecting your technique. Same with basebell or in boxing or maybe even jumping, technique is the number one thing to work on.

I know most of you guys already know this, but i just want to drill this in. You can have all the muscles and fast twitch fibers in the world, but if you don't know how to use them properly, then it means crap.

Take Timothy Bradley for example. He's a strong and pretty fast 140 pounder, but has mediocre power and I believe it's mainly from bad technique.

Watch what happens when he learns the right way to punch.

Donaire would make an awesome coach.

There's a video with Corrales explaining how he generates so much power at 130. It's all technique.

Personally I believe power is god given. Punchers are born not made imo.

I think you can develop your technique to make your punches have a greater effect, but as for developing actual power, I dont know about that.

Things you can do, is put a greater disguise on your punches, that way the opponent cant brace for impact when they see the punches coming. Take Roger Mayweather, he obviously had natural power, but he used to stand so side on, that he almost hid the right hand from the opponent.

There is clearly a large proprotion of power is determined by your genetics, good technique is also extremley important. However, anyone who says that power cant be improved by in the gym is clearly blind to the facts.

Default Re: The best way to improve power

a punch is preformed through concentric collapsing circles in a series of kinetic linking.

the better you have control over the timing of the collapsing circles allowing the kinetic energy to travel from your feet to your fist with increased efficiency the faster and more powerful your punch will be.

as well with improving your efficiency of transferring the energy from your legs to your fist you will improve the time it takes to throw the punch and with being better at controlling the energy as it travels from your legs up you can delay or speed it up allowing you more room to work with as far as timing.

all this control thanks to your fine motor skills.....and we all know what type of muscle is solely responsible for fine motor skills, right?


sooo yeah, technique is the key to power....cause i say so.

Mostly Technique. But with no conditioning you can be pretty much inaffective as a fighter.
