Try not to lean forward on both the Jab and the cross - if you feel that you are too far away, get your feet into the correct position to reduce this tendency. This limits your rotation and moves your weight off your rear foot thus reducing power and balance.

Also, you need to anchor your feet to the ground by dropping your weight more, particularly when throwing the right hand. Notice how your rear foot and hips are lifting slightly. Your hips need to drop as you throw the right - simply bend your front knee slightly as you throw the right and your hips will fall and thus push both feet into the ground (If you don't lean in as advised above).

You need more hip drive and shoulder rotation on the right hand.

Hope this helps for now.

For practice throw your jab at your own height so it comes out straight and returns high. Step with your jab into the bag and then drop some weight on your right leg (sitting down) so you have some power! Your not pronating (turning your wrists down) so theres not much snap to your shots. If you pronate correctly and concentrate on your hand sppeed then sit down properly you'll be moving that bag away from the wall hahaha!!! Turn your hip and pivot the foot out when the right hand is thrown.

Straighten the jab (pronate)
Fast right hand (pronate) turn your foot out (pivot) with the hip (sit down)

.......then don't just stand there fin ish with a hook and slid under or step off to the side just don't stand there.
If you can get that bag in a area where you have 360degrees to move around it!! good luck and power comes from the weight shift, pivoting, pronating and overall hand speed! Ray.

Have you had formal boxing training?

Youre not relaxed, punches arent really snapped, and youre leaning too far in. Youre also dropping your right hand and too far off balance.

Good tips and advice have already been given here. I know you didn't ask about this, but you should really try incorporating a little head movement into the workout.

I thought when you threw a cross that your rear foot would lift/twist?

Yes, mate. I assume this is a response to my post, as reading it back things may seem a little confusing.

When I mentioned dropping the hips (i.e. bending the front leg on the cross) to press your weight into the floor, I am talking about pressing the toes of the rear leg into the floor. The heel should still lift / twist to allow rotation of the hips.

When I mentioned the rear foot of the OP lifting, I should have been more specific and said his toes were coming off the ground, rather than his foot.

But yeah, the heal of the rear foot should twist / come off the ground but the toe should be firmly pressed into the ground when throwing the right hand.

Cheers.
