    Well, to develop power which is explosive. Do clapping pushups, and train your core very well! But technique is the key, punching "strength" is alot to do with genetics to.

    No offense mate but that's absolute bollocks. It is not genetic, its training. Boxers are trained not born. With perfect technique any boxer can deliver an extraordinary amount of force proportional to his total body weight. A good trainer can teach anyone how to do this.

    Well, yes I agree. I was simply stating that some people are just born able to hit harder and excell in combatitive sports. There born with more fast twitch fibers and are able to recruit more of them from the start of the punch, exactly what doing plyos will train your nervous system to do! Of course anyone can develop more powerful hits, I was just saying that some people really don't need to haha!

    a good powerful punch is genetics thers people in this world who without training can hit like tanks and people who are built like tanks that cant.. the amount of boxing fights amatuer and pro ive seen you can never tell whos got the most powerful punch till its landed training can give you a "good" punch buh its never the same as if u have the good solid punching genetic in you and believe me i go to a boxing show once a month

    Genetics may have something to do with it but im gonna go with expat on this one. You guys forget what your parents told you when you were just little tikes? you can be whatever you want to be. It just takes hardwork and the will to stay with it. PLus a lot of your physic and things like that have to do with how you were brought up and the area around you. Take a kid who comes from an abused family or a bad neighborhood. A lot of times thier gonna know how to defend themselves just because they ahd to and their punch could probably take your head off even though their probably tiny.

    dont forget mike tyson! he was heavy weight champ of the world, stopped trained, tried fighting again and got his ass handed to him by some one no one had ever heard of. genes help but theres no substitute for a good training regimen.

    Punching is like anything else. if you want to get good at it, do it!
    Side effects may include; weight gain, increased appetite, increased sex appeal, huge arms, massive strength, XXL t-shirts, self confidence, low fat diet, sexy pectorals, sheer ballsiness, and penile growth. If muscle growth persists for more then four hours, consult a mirror.

    you should figure out whose boxers they are, and plant them in their locker. i hate when people leave crap in the lockers so you have to search like a madman to find an open locker that doesn't smell like arse.

    I think you could massively improve the force of your punches with just technique improvements (Im assuming youre not in training already). A full force cross punch uses your whole body, from your right foot, through the leg and torso and down your arm, which is not an easy thing to master straight away. So the more weight, speed and technique the better. Lifting heavy weights and benching requires your to slow down towards the end of the movement, over time your muscles get used to this and it will hinder speed. If you look at the build of a lighter division boxer you'll see they have comparatively wirey arms and massive back and shoulder muscles.

    Example: Here

    Other than that, like people have said you need to build up explosive power, stuff like clap pushups and heavybag training would help. A lot of boxers and kickboxers I've known train mostly with their own bodyweight. Maybe try getting some wrist weights and a punchbag?

    Really your best bet in my opinion would be get some basic training and get your technique down, then work on speed and strength.
