Tweet Pin It Brian Stann Can’t Make It Through An Interview Without Being Bugged Countdown To UFC 136 Complete Video 24 Comments Forumone October 5, 2011 Can’t wait to see what this pic gets photoshopped into LOL Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick October 5, 2011 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… Log in to Reply Freedomfit October 5, 2011 I do this workout, I love it, but this was a stupid vid..(not blaming you B) Sport science is getting really lame. Log in to Reply op_of_faith October 5, 2011 Props KungFuLowKick, exactly right. I have to say though…5’8″ and 172lbs??!? Jeezz…Maynards got more muscle mass than I thought… Log in to Reply Pope October 5, 2011 @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. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick October 5, 2011 @Pope 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. Log in to Reply mma mike October 5, 2011 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 Log in to Reply mma mike October 5, 2011 an you dumb **** 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 Log in to Reply Pope October 5, 2011 @mma mike. i agree. i pulled my back/hip once really bad from missing with a hay-maker type uppercut. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick October 5, 2011 @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. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick October 5, 2011 And calling people dumb ****s for no reason is immature Mike Log in to Reply murell October 5, 2011 kungfulowkick,since you know so much maybe you should fight in the U.F.C,when you grow up. Log in to Reply murell October 5, 2011 Wow, just think how good Gray Maynard would do if he had kungfulowkick in his training camp. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick October 5, 2011 @murrell 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. Log in to Reply M October 5, 2011 lol yeah some ppl just have to sound like biomed majors I guess. Log in to Reply Yoplait October 5, 2011 I’m so in love right now, thanks for the pic Bruno…Glad I’m stocked up on astroglide! Log in to Reply damanisme October 5, 2011 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. Log in to Reply mma mike October 6, 2011 ok my bad for calling you a dumb **** 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 Log in to Reply steamer October 6, 2011 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 Log in to Reply slim October 6, 2011 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. Log in to Reply Yoplait October 6, 2011 Hey steamer…where can we see your knockout reel? Log in to Reply AOR October 7, 2011 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. Log in to Reply Corey October 7, 2011 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.
