where is your weight during your power punch?
By power punch, I mean the big, straight right if you are fighting in an orthodox stance.
I tend to be an outside fighter and I tend to put most of my weight on the front foot when throwing the straight right. The right foot pivots on the ball, but the right heel is lifted.
I've recently been working out with someone who does it completely differently. He is short and stalky and a strong inside fighter.
He actually shifts the weight to his back(right) foot when throwing the straight right. His right foot still pivots on the ball, but his heel barely leaves the floor.
I've tried it and for reasons I don't quite comprehend the shift in weight from front to back during the puch seems to give extra power. It just goes against the way I was taught.
Does anyone else punch like this?
Is it an inside fighter's punch exclusively?
