what are some workouts i can do to increase my punching power??
core workouts (squats and deadlifts) and explosive movements (power cleans)
put brass knuckles in gloves
Punching stuff, since it's mostly technique.
imagine your target is about 1ft behind where they are
find bruce lees body and use it to fertilize a weed plant, then smoke the weed
work on your hip mobility. so many people think they need to build their triceps and whatnot, but if you can't drive the power through your hips, you're not going to throw a hard punch.
I see MMA guys hitting shit with a sledge hammer on tv
practice your proper punching technique, power will come after
visualize the punch going into your enemies face
Watch a lot of Rocky montages .... while listening to "Eye of the tiger"!
.. I'd go for pullups as well and other wingspan exercises.
so is practicing punching technique better than working out muscle that use for punch?
yes, go get a boxing coach to show you how cause you wont figure out how to do it on your own
do you box?
I don't know why but I literally busted out LOL'ing
Yes. Technique and body movement come first.
Practice that. Power comes naturally over time. Once you get a great technique on your punch then you can start building up other areas that help drive a punch (lats, shoulders, rear delts, triceps, etc...) and doing that in addition to working on your striking force will give you a powerful punch.
I like to add vodka or if im getting crazy, everclear of 151, thats usually how I increase my punch's power.
pretend like your enemy is carbohydrates and you are cutting!!!
BLAST THE MOTHAFUCKA FOOL
I've had those before.
I've heard that sometimes it represents your inability to control a situation that you'd like to eliminate/fix/take care of.
Dunno if there's any truth to that. I've been in fights, and I know how to throw a punch and I have those same dreams once in a while.
btw this question is better for "The Cage" than F&N.
