Top S&C coach Ric Moylan shares five exercises designed to develop your knockout power

Back squat

1. Back squat
ALONGSIDE the deadlift, the squat is one of the two foundation exercises for everybody. Whether you are a professional boxer, another type of professional athlete or a weekend warrior keeping fit, the back squat is an exercise that everybody should be doing. For a boxer to improve punch power the squat is a must. Back squats activate and strengthen the two biggest muscle groups of our body, the glutes and quads. When fully activated, strengthened, and used to their capacity, pretty much every aspect of the boxers athletic capabilities will improve. Punch power will most certainly improve, and a boxer should be looking to squat heavy for five sets of five reps, working their way up to 1-1.5 x their own bodyweight.
