Question ~* Muscles? *~

This might sound like a strange question, but what muscles do you work on, to add power to your Punch? I was going to start working out, but I wasn't sure what I needed to Focus on.. I've selected Bi/Triceps, Shoulders, and Pecs. But, I didn't know if these are the right ones to Focus on. Any help would be greatly apreciated.

i think you basically have it covered there. But for more help go try the Exercise and Fitness board. Lots of bodybuilders there that might be able to help more.

Working out will definitely help. But, you are going to need to work the heavy bag to actually build that punch.

to get a powerful punch, youll need to work out your forearms alot, thats where most of you arm strenght comes from, but you should work every muscle on your body, you woldnt want to have big arms but chicken legs, but if all your looking for is a hard punch work the forearms and triceps the most

Remember to work your abs, your deltoids, and your obliques. Power comes from the momentum of throwing your whole body into it. Rotating fast enough is important.

But why the hell do you need to punch someone? I mean fighting is just a sucky situation due to lawsuits and authorities who have power over you. If you need to protect yourself, learn how to talk to people. De-esculate the situation a little. I hate fighting, I avoid it at all costs. Unless you are a boxer you have no reason to want a better punch. Consider carrying a boxcutter if you need protection. That way if it gets found in school you are an artist. You're working on a model. Blah blah blah. That one you can talk your way out of.

Remember... Fighting sucks.

Best wishes,
FirestormZero

your chest and triceps are very important muscles to work if you're looking to increase your punching power. also your obliques and abs as firestormzero said. a good excercise for this is holding a barbell with a little weight on it behind your head on your shoulders as you would do if you're preparing to do a squat, and then just rotate your body back and forth, but not to fast because you might not be able to stop the momentum of the weight and you might pull or tear a muscle (which really sucks) by the way....why are you looking to increase your punching power?

Being a body builder myself, i can give you some pointers. To make your punch stronger, you should work on your wrist muscles, biceps, triceps, and deltoids. Once you got that you'll really start looking good. To get good pecs, try some lateral workouts, use a bench press, pushups always work too You should also work on your abs. Do some situps or go to the gym and find a machine that works on your abs. Girls go wild for 6 packs Hope this helps!
