Increase Power of Your Punches with This Drill

You've heard the saying, "sit down on your punches" but having a hard time understanding what that means? Add this drill to your training so that you can get a feel for "sitting down on your punches". 

Yes it looks like some sort of Big Booty Boxing Circuit, but this drill will help in a few ways.

  • Forces you to engage your legs when punching. "sit down on your punches"
  • Eliminates arm punching. Since you are closer to the bag, you will need to focus on hip rotation and pivoting the foot for  power shots.
  • Will give you a big booty.

"I do most of my work sitting down; that's where I shine."- Robert Benchley 

How to Perform

  • Stand at about jab distance from the bag & sit on a chair or a stack of kick shields.
  • With a slightly wider stance, stand up & throw your combos w/power!
  • Make sure to engage your hips, legs, abs & pivot your feet for more power.
  • Use long guard to control the bag on the return & to stabilize your sitting position.

Try this drill out, share it with your teammates and let me know your experience.

Best to your training,
