Some people in boxing say that speed kills… but there are many boxers with fast hands that lack the knockout punch. This may be due to a lack of snap in the punch.
Strength and Conditioning coach Danny Wilson explains and shares training methods that can help increase the ‘snap’ in the punch.
Delivering Hard Punches Requires….
- Developing large magnitudes of force in short periods of time
- The momentum of the punching arm is important and has been demonstrated to be a key variable contributing to the impulsiveness of a punch
- A second pulse in muscle activation is required on impact and has been defined as “stiffening” to create “effective mass”
