    How to increase velocity of strikes

    I was reading "Bruce Lee's Training Method" the 4 book series, and in the basic book he mentions that when you practice striking it should be done slow so that the joints don't get snapped too often, as opposed to practicing quickly so that the joints wear out.

    The book also said that weight training was beneficial to speed - can someone clarify this? It just doesn't make sense.

    what doesnt make sense? weights= strength and power= faster more damaging strikes.

    in that part of his book im gonna assume Lee is talking about striking the air in which case he is right, going full bore when shadowboxing isnt a good idea for your joints.

    Also, weight training is benificial to speed and stamina (and strength obviously) if you do multiple reps of lighter weights.

    Like when I'm benching for example, I go with a weight lower than normal (like 20-30 lbs lower or something) and instead of 10 reps, do 15 or 20. I speed up the movements as close to punching speed as possible, but I don't fully extend so that the joints don't get strained too much.

    Proper body movement can speed up your strikes by a lot too. Using the hip makes strikes faster and stronger than just moving your arm by itself.

    i dont know who told you that doing lots of reps with a low weight increases your speed, but they lied.

    Yeah, that'll help with a bit of endurance, but won't do much for your speed. Plyometric exercises could be helpful. Other than that, you've got to make sure your form is good, and there are no hitches in your mechanics.

    If you want to increase your 'speed' - ie power - do about 30% maximum weight at the highest speed you can control adequately. So if you bench 100kg then do low reps at 30kg but at maximum speed.

    stop spreading misinformation already. if you want to improve your speed, you wont do it with high reps. this is not how muscles work. get a bit of lifting experience under your belt then read up on plyometrics.
