Too many guys I know are just satisfied with hitting something accurately instead of blowing through it. They're afraid of over committing.

My sifu always told me that guys with strong back muscles have real KO power if they knew how to use it properly.
Some fighters can't throw certain punches without over committing themselves, try throwing a punch like Mike Tyson for instance, the average Joe would throw himself off balance.
