    If you do punch with weights, make sure they are extremely light. Heavier weights cause a dragging effect which actually is detrimental to your development of punching power.

    Ross Enamait (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ross_Enamait) has written some really good articles on developing punch power. Here's an article he wrote about Heavy Bag usage.

    Also, if you really want to incorporate weight training into your punching invest in kettlebells. Invader Chris's suggestion to get resistance bands is a good idea too.

    Here's an interesting usage of a mini medicine ball to add weight into a punch-training routine.

    I punch with them sometimes...just 2 or 3 lbs though...the little ones that are molded to fit well in the grip. It works the shoulder, and some other things....but I don't throw real full punches...gloves are good for that....but I found, it does help prevent me throwing my shoulder out in sparring, or even tweaking it. That said, I'm very careful not to overdo it...and don't use it much....there are better ways.

    I like a set of 2 lbs weights for shadow boxing during my bag routine. I use 16oz gloves on the bag so doubling the weight and throwing short, sharp punches, while focusing on technique and keeping my hands up has helped me with speed and balance. I don't know if it's given me any power, but a little speed and a little balance to be sure.

    Your reference has completely eluded me since I've never seen whatever it is you're referencing.

    What? The resistance is the wrong way. It'd probably help you keep your hands up, though.

    I could imagine throwing the mini med ball at my bag, missing it completely and the ball sailing quite unhindered through the drywall into my neighbors apartment. That'd be a tough one to explain to the landlord without looking completely retarded.

    yeah, for that reason alone i am looking for a handball court or solid brick wall to use as a rebounding surface before i try that exercise.
