    from the article:

    'Ideally, the boxing punch consists of a synchronization between arm, leg, and trunk actions. The punching movement of a boxer consists of leg extension, trunk rotation, and arm extension, in succession. The more effective the coordination between arm, leg and trunk movements, the greater the impact force of a punch. The leg muscles play a vital role in the power developed in this sequence. Increasing leg force development and coordinating it with trunk and arm action is probably the most effective way to increase punching power.'

    Didn't see much mention in there of push-ups increasing punching power (from another thread).

    Push ups and punching power ??
    Push ups are great for warm ups, put to increase power ? not unless you have some SERIOUS weight on your back/shoulders.

    I heard that clapping push ups help develop explosiveness which may improve hand speed which may improve power.

    Ronin, what do you think of one-arm push ups?

    Interesting.
    Do you feel training can be improved if the exercises are performed with barnyard equipment in snowy mountains, as in Rocky4 ?

    Apparently he forgot all his footwork from Apollo Creed's training in part 3.
