    Right foot during cross

    So when I throw a right cross for boxing, the form and power tends to be pretty good if I am standing still. However, when moving dynamically, like in sparring or mitt work, I have a really bad habit of stepping my right foot forward ahead of my left when throwing a cross while moving forward.

    How can I avoid doing this? The issue is, if I don't step that foot over, I feel like I can't throw a powerful enough cross while advancing. What are some tips to throw a better right cross (in orthodox stance) while moving forward rapidly?

    Bend your knees and sink straight down an inch. Twist, don't reach.

    Also, plant the toes and ball of your right foot and push into the twisting motion. I've seen people get in the habit of lifting the rear foot off the mat/ground/canvas/whatever when throwing a cross and get into all sorts of screwiness.

    Come to think of it, maybe you should just learn how to box.

    Are you stepping with the left before throwing the cross?

    Mainly echoing what was said earlier but make sure to keep your foot down. You can also rotate on the balls of your right foot to add power.

    The rotation helps you to build power and to turn your hips into the punch. I would reccomend going to the heavy bag and just throwing a 1-2 a few hundred times. Making sure EACH is well performed.

    It's boxing, not pitching a baseball - keep your foot down. Sink, and push forward off your back foot and get a little lighter on the front.

    Sounds like you may be throwing the punch when you are too far away from the target. This can cause you lean to forward (if you suck).

    I bet your advancing "cross" looks more like an overhand.
