    Dumbbell snatches.

    Punching stuff, since it's mostly technique.

    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.

    Watch a lot of Rocky montages .... while listening to "Eye of the tiger"!

    .. I'd go for pullups as well and other wingspan exercises.

    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'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.
