Hey. When I throw a hard punch it feels like my arm will break. Is this a sign of high punching power? Or just the way I throw my punch? This is during shadow boxing by the way so I'm not even hitting a bag or anyone. I understand breaking your hand or wrist is normal because they are closer to the hit and absorb it all (I didn't say it was normal to break anything but when it happens it is mostly the hands and wrists. ). But breaking your arm or shoulder is unheard of for me. Also I have a problem when I punch hard my whole body will turn and I will kind of do a 180 almost but I have to stop myself, but i lose my balance in the process and i cant throw hard combinations thus. Should you punch less depending on where you do it and toward other areas harder? sometimes i punch so hard i think theres no way anyone will survive this.
