Is a winding punch with a straight arm harder than a cross. When I try to hit my hardest I always do that but im not sure which is harder hit. If you dont understand how the punch is heres the video, but imagine that right handed with my hips and legs going into the punch:

Long story short: Which punch would create more power, this one or a right cross.
I cant post the video until 15 posts so ill just spam until i can.

Dude, you need bigger bicep peaks.

Bicep peaks are the key to boxing power.

Absolutely

Without larger bicep peaks you might as well give up, just the way it is

I agree with the bicep post. Biceps are a must for punching power. Look at Chuck Liddel or Rampage Jackson, probably the hardest punchers to ever roam the earth aside from Brock Lesnar. They all have big biceps.


some good diet routines are: beer, potato chips, quick mass/bulk tapout supplements and above all ENERGY DRINKS.

If you are a middleweight I recommend you bulk up to HW for an increase in power.

And yes, the winding hook is a beast of a punch.

I completely disagree with all this bicep crap every one knows that its all about your pecs. You need to get in the weight room and start benching!!!!

the biceps and chest play no actual role in the punch except for maybe pulling your fist back in. The legs and core on the other hand are very important. not only in power behind the punch but also in remaining stable during and after the punch

A winding hook is a fundamental punch, preferably thrown with your other hand at your waist, and your chin high in the air, dont forget to scream as you throw it too

So true. Everytime I have felt **** in a spar or fight, its usually been because my legs werent 100% either from an injury or from a hard sprinting session previously

like yesterday at 11am we did a damn hard sprint session, four 800m sprints, and you get 3 mins to do the 800 and then rest, if you do it in 2:10 you get 50 sec rest, then we start again. then a break and then 4x3 min rounds of a jogging/expolsive sprinting drill. Then at 6 we had a boxing session and ive never felt more lethargic and bad in a spar, the dude i was sparring was fresh and while i hung in there and managed to match it with him mostly, I was exhausted so badly

in contrast, after doing upperbody strength in the morning and gym in the arvo like today, sure your arms are like jelly, but you can still move freely to get out of trouble and rest, legs are so important in boxing

power comes from the legs. Want to know why? It's because the legs are what controls the rotation of the hips. If you have lots of fast twitch fibers in your legs or strong legs, you are going to punch hard. The core plays a small role but not nearly to the extent of the legs.

by legs I mean the entire thing, the calf, quads etc...thats why boxers skip.

I still say technique above all though.
