Rope climbing without his legs his INCREDIBLY hard to do.But like always Sportscience make dumb links between rope climbing and punhing power.Yes it will make him have a stronger back and grip but it has nothing to do with punching power you dummies.Punching power comes from the legs and the hips,not the shoulders or hands…

I do this workout, I love it, but this was a stupid vid..(not blaming you B) Sport science is getting really lame.

Props KungFuLowKick, exactly right. I have to say though…5’8″ and 172lbs??!? Jeezz…Maynards got more muscle mass than I thought…

@kungfulowkick having strong shoulders helps with punching power because when you lock them up they can take the strain of the punch better. Having big hands and wrists helps a lot as well. Having a strong grip means your wrists can take the pressure of a punch which helps. I also feel like a strong back can help you torque punches like uppercuts more as well, I could be wrong, but I feel like almost every muscle plays at least a small factor in punching power. I do agree that the majority comes from the hips and legs though.

Its true that it helps to have stronger shoulders so they wont get tired too fast but if you take a Gray Maynard who does the same training,has the same muscle mass but has no technic,he wont hit hard.You arms are supposed to be whips and all the force comes in majority from the hips and legs.The rest will come from the whiping motion of the rest of your body.Thats why huge guys like Jeff Monson who bench alot punch really weak,they are too tense.Gray has a good boxing thats why he hits hard.The rope climbing probably helps him more in grappling im sure.

punch power actually comes from the shoulders and back hips is part of your back its connected to the back bone … and ur right about the hips … but these guys are proffessionals so what do you no kid

mma mike Says, in 10-5-2011 at 16:02:32 from    

an you dumb F*** big hand do not matter at all but big wrist do because they take more impact … look at brock lesnar biggest hands and wrist and back musle and shoulders in the sport but never knocked out any mma fighter? its lean also like silva if you have to much musle you will be weak also with not enuf musle but if you are in between like junior dos santos then youll get more knock outs duh

@mma mike. i agree. i pulled my back/hip once really bad from missing with a hay-maker type uppercut.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 10-5-2011 at 16:22:35 from    

@mma mike
I just know what anybody who boxes knows.And Sportscience aren’t professional at all they once said punches from mount were stronger then standing up…As for Gray he never said it was a punching power exercise he said it was a good core exercise.My boxing coaches always told me muscles play a fairly small role in punching power and that yes you need to turn your shoulder but the force comes in majority from the hips and your technic.But what do they know they are just the 2nd best boxing gym in Quebec.

And calling people dumb f**** for no reason is immature Mike

murell Says, in 10-5-2011 at 17:40:22 from    

kungfulowkick,since you know so much maybe you should fight in the U.F.C,when you grow up.

murell Says, in 10-5-2011 at 17:44:31 from    

Wow, just think how good Gray Maynard would do if he had kungfulowkick in his training camp.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 10-5-2011 at 18:20:26 from    

I just talked about Gray’s technic once and I said it was good so I don’t know why you say that.I just said sportscience is dumb to make the link between that exercise and his punching power.You’re just insulted that I told you you were ignorant when you were saying Silva was lucky with a triangle wich is totally true.

lol yeah some ppl just have to sound like biomed majors I guess.

I’m so in love right now, thanks for the pic Bruno…Glad I’m stocked up on astroglide!

The average male has enough hip and leg strength to have knockout power…it starts at the hips and legs but def isn’t the most important part to focus on when training it starts there but pretty much everything sports related does. The core is where KO power comes from since it allows muscles involved in the blow to follow through quickly through the target…and causing sudden impact..nothing is better for that than medicine ball training.

mma mike Says, in 10-6-2011 at 03:03:57 from    

ok my bad for calling you a dumb F*** i got alil over excited but every boxing gym is different im from america but i dont discresmenate so im saying its all around if you have to much musle its useless it have to be equal unless your gonaa end up like bob sapp he got beat up by someone thats 159 pounds and he is 340 pound … you feel me

steamer Says, in 10-6-2011 at 03:13:09 from    

kinda disappointed fellas…it starts in the toes, torque with you’re legs and hips, and yes let your arms just snap, the ability to stun or KO is mostly speed and placement. if you’re taught correctly you don’t even think about it. you’re feet are always moving

slim Says, in 10-6-2011 at 15:32:08 from    

punchers are born they are not made. Anyone that boxes knows this. Yes you can make your punching power better, but that is only through technique.

Yoplait Says, in 10-6-2011 at 18:37:48 from    

Hey steamer…where can we see your knockout reel?

AOR Says, in 10-7-2011 at 00:49:39 from    

slim is the only guy here who has a clue what he’s talking about. Your born with K.O power, or you aren’t.

Corey Says, in 10-7-2011 at 03:46:02 from    

Good fighters are intelligent. Judging from the grammar and back and forth arguing, no one here is a good fighter, and maybe we should leave the guys who step in the cage to consider technique.

I knew that annoying little turd had to be from Quebec. Please let everyone know what gym you are talking about so you can get ktfo
