    Default The Importance of Posture

    A wise old fellow gave me some sound advice the other day. I'm sure among some better coaches it's common knowledge, but to a novice like me, the effects are amazing.

    The conversation was about the importance of having good posture in your stance. Specifically, NOT hunching or rounding your shoulders when you shand. If you do, your shoulders with work overtime to support your arms, and you with end up arm punching due to poor hip rotation with your punches. With you back straight and your chest out, your torso supports your arms and your hips are loose to whip around with the punches.

    I have started doing this and I noticed and immediate and amazing difference!

    (and is there a breathing benefit to standing this way? Less pressure on the diaphram?)

    I used to always have problems with keeping my hands up. With good posture, the difference is night and day. It's also the first time I experienced the true "whip effect" they talk about with a hip/shoulder whirl.

    That above the Neck, the Body is there to transport it. In the wrong place, it alters the Bio-mechanics of movement, and response.

    Ive heard this but ive also been told by various trainers that you want to have a bit of crunch in your stomach for leverage/power and stability and that you dont want to be up straight

    has anyone else heard that?

    Good posture is always important, but (a big one) you do not want to be posing either.
    Good stance/posture is not the most important thing! It has to be integrated with head movement, upper torso movement, side to side movement, in and out movement, angles, speed, and years of experience.
    Some of you sound like you are saying, "Mr Newbie is fast and has great posture, he'll be ready for Floyd in a couple of years."
    How do you explain the success Martinez or Emanuel Augustus had?

    I think you're confusing posture with posturing...

    All good movement starts from good posture, good biomechanics.

    If you hang a door on wonky hinges then it will creak and crack when you open and close it.
