    does having bigger arms make your punches stronger

    If you gain 2" muscle on your arms and 20lbs does this mean you can exert more forceful and stronger punches

    Or does it come down to technique at end of day

    Punch strength goes hand in hand with upper back strength imo.

    But technique at the end of the day will make or break your punches.

    Weight will always make a punch harder (within reason) but technique will have a 170lb guy punching harder than a 200lb guy.... sh!t, go scope some old buce lee "1inch punch" vids (no gay).
    Not here to impress you phaggots.

    Strength from a hook mostly comes from your ass and legs. I'd assume jabs would become more powerful with stronger shoulders and triceps but at the end of the day, it's all about technique. Obviously more mass=more power as long as you don't slow down.

    punching uses alot of muscles, but your upper back and chest play the vital roles, stronger arms is never a bad thing, and you use shoulder muscles also...if youve ever noticed, your shoudler always moves before anything slightly when you throw a punch

    Nope, not really. All technique and natural. Some people can punch, others cant, just like some people can run fast, lift heavy, etc...

    You can improve it with technique though, some people are just heavy handed. Ive seen 200lb guys who cant punch for **** and little scrawny kids who punch like monsters

    sure, if all you punch with is your arms.

    core strength is infinitely more important.

    If you can accelerate your arm just as fast, with more mass on your arm, then there will be more force.

    I've been doing thai boxing for 3 years, I believe punching power comes from your CORE more than anything. You twist your hips, legs and ass too generate power in a punch.

    Obviously if you're a big person, more power will be generated if you're of equal skill too a smaller person.

    This is why there are weight classes in boxing.

    Too conclude, punch power comes from your legs, ass and core, you never really just use the arm/shoulder to punch, it's just the thing that smacks you senseless (I mean, you can't punch somebody with your hips can you)?

    I know and understand this but

    for example if you put a twig on a rotational machine or put a tree trunk on the end of a rotational machine

    When the machine rotates if it is the twig or the tree trunk that hits at exact same acceleration the tree trunk will cause more damage.

    So, having bigger arms alone will increase punch force regardless of core?

    Either that's a really good anology, or a real bad one.

    Remember the trunk is harder than the twig, but remember, you're NOT hitting someone with the bicep or tricep or shoulder, you're hitting with a padded glove. More muscle on the arm may add maybe a tiny bit more force, but I still think the muscle and inner strength of the legs, ass and core are what generate 90% of the power. Bigger arms could even slow down the punch decreasing power.

    But then again look at George Foreman, his arms were like tree trunks, but then again heavyweights can afford to have 20 inch arms, it's natural.

    If a Welterweight like GSP had 18 inch pythons, I don't think it'd do his punching any good, look at Sean Sherk (Ex lightweight UFC champion cage fighter). His arms were massive, but couldn't punch for ****.

    If you have larger arms, then yes, your punches will generate more force, assuming you can maintain your acceleration (in other words the rest of your body must get stronger and faster since your arms now have more inertia)

    The "sweet science" is finding the spot where you minmax both mass and acceleration, which, by the way, is far larger than Bruce Lee

    No.

    I can't actually interfere at a certain point. As stated, punching power comes from the rotation of the hips, legs and upper body. The arms snap out or snap across at the end of the movement. The fist then rotates and makes impact (ideally.)

    Guys with big arms have a hard time snapping their punches. They are likely to "PUSH" the punches out or just throw slow haymakers.

    The hardest punchers were guys like Mike Tyson, Tommy Morrison, George Forman, Ken Frazier, Muhammad Ali. They had muscular arms, but not "HUGE" arms.

    Interesting note. Muhammad Ali is known as the most powerful 'arm puncher'. He naturally threw punches with his arms and didn't rotate much. He blows = mind.

    If you add muscle to your frame. Generally this extra weight will slow you down. You want to be as fast as possible. But then there are those guys who are heavy handed

    sure I guess but also as it is always the fist that connects, the mass of fist aitn gonna change with bigger arms, so force is mas x accelration but the impact is mass of fist?

    I dunno

    i alwyas got told I had a sore punch becuase my fingers are so boney...and it hurts with my boney knuckles etc..I dunno

    I have realy boney elbows to and I remember at school I elbowed this boy in the face and knocked him clean out lol.

    If you can accelerate your big arm as fast as a light arm, ofc there will be more force from the big one. its simple physics

    If you can increase the mass in your arms and move them at the same speed as when they were lighter then yes your punches will be more powerful. /thread

    well if bruce lee can do such devastation with 1 inch punches that has nothing to do with rotation and core either

    On a simialr note its same as kicking a football soccer ball, the power is generated in the hip rotation, transfers thorugh the leg to the foot as it connects with the ball

    Eventually mass will lower acceleration. You need a balance between mass and acceleration.

    Yes it did.
    He rotated his hips and upper body when he did that punch.
    He didn't just extend his elbow.

    Adding extra muscle does not slow you down, unless you're being babyslayer or already have a BMI of 30+



    1:30+, also notice most of the punches he's throwing are hooks and haymakers (i.e. using the mass of his arm to his advantage) and they're still almost too fast to avoid

    Wtf, the 1 inch punch had everything to do with rotation and hips, and it wasn't "devastating" either, haha, it was just a push

    When you say bigger arm can we assume you mean bi, tri, or forearm?
    If so what punch relies heavily on these muscles?

    I guess if you have crappy form, bigger arms will add to your punch but other wise not so much. Little things like fist rotation make more difference to punch power than adding a bit of bi/tri size. Of course a guy with 9" arms punches no where as hard as a guy with 16" arms. On the other hand my trainer has pretty small arms but can knock me off my feet if he sets me up for a big shot, one of my sparring partners has monster arms but has never knocked me down. He hits no where near as hard as my trainer.

    You tards are thinking wayyy to much about this, as usual.


    That simple answer is yes, a stronger version of you will punch harder than a weaker version of you.
