THIS week we move on to power. We work on power punches with weights or resistance, so that instead of wasting punches, the fighter is able to generate force at the right time. Many of these exercises are designed to replicate the movement patterns used in a fight.

You can be caught in tear-ups or pushed onto the backfoot, so you have to be ready to land that shot and generate power from any position. All this work leads to the timed circuit at the end which replicates the rounds in a boxing match.
