You say that striking power can be improved, and I agree with you, only to an extent.
But, how do you prove or conclude that punching power has been improved?
How do you test it? how do you know?
To improve speed in the 100 meters you can see by the results.
Weight lifting same thing, you can tell by an INCREASE in weight lifted.
Shot put, and INCREASE in distance.
But punching, how?
Increase speed? That is only PART of the equation.
Increase mass? how do you know speed was not compremised?
Increase muscular strentgh? how do you know it translates to impact force?
You need to be able to evaluate progression, till then you are only speculating, no?
Science needs proof.
Fact is, punching power, like speed is genetic, can it be improved? yes, to what extent has yet to be determined.
