    Yeah, the best being to throw full power punches at a heavy bag. Also using heavy free weights (dumb bells, barbells) and doing fast reps of upper body exercises will help as it increases speed + strength (power). Skipping helps aswell because it works most of the muscles you use when throwing a punches. Overall best has to be just using the heavy bag though IMO.

    Practicing snapping punches while shadowboxing will also help. (It increases speed to help with power).

    The best way to increase puncing power is to improve punching technique. imple tings like making sure to get your wegt turned, keeping your hips in front of your hands, turning your shoulders through so that they drive the punch instead of swinging your arms...These things are vitally important and, to my mind, more essntial than big arms or benchpress numbers

    LEGS LEGS LEGS focus on doing squats and lunges and all that bullcrap and you'll have more power, look at guys like Tyson, Frazier, Marciano they got their power from their legs

    you could hit with all the force in the world but it would all just be a big waste unless you can actually land the thing. say you have a good punch, maybe even downright great punch, if you find yourself unable to get it into it's target or if your opponent saw it coming -- in effect allowing him to brace himself for the impact, if not simply rolling away from it -- your punches are all bark no bite. sure you might look scary on a heavy bag, but a bag is not hardly the same thing as a thinking and adapting opponent. its all about getting the punch home and with that power follows naturally as a result.

    a really really good way to improve your punching power by impressive amounts is to shot put.
    get a dumbell. go outside into your garden. throw it as far as you can with the right hand 5 times, then change sidees. the act of hurling against resistance will really build up the same muscles used for straight punching.

    but remember, power comes from the conversion of bodyweight behinf a punch, not the muscles in the upper body. improve your timing and co-ordination of the punch. thrust your hips into the shot and rotate your upper torso into it.

    Thats more of a speed/endurance builder. Still good training though

    some good advice in this thread
    but what is being underestimated is the legs
    do alot of squats, do alot of jumping, do ALOT of running up and down stairs
    the guy above me already stated "Look at Tyson, his power came from his legs"
    that's the problem with heavyweights nowadays
    they all rely on arm strength, that's why they can't hit as hard as tyson
    his legs were humungous
