Six male competitive amateur boxers (mean ± SD age: 24.6 ± 3.3 years; height 1.82 ± 0.05m; mass: 73.3 ± 19.0 kg) participated in electromyography during delivery of boxing punches to a dynamometer. A linear model of recruitment of the muscles under investigation applied best in the case of maximum force punches delivered to the body. The importance of the rectus femoris gastrocnemius and biceps femoris muscles in the initiation of punch delivery was evident. Punch forces delivered for maximal…

The effect of fatiguing lower-body exercise on punch forces in highly-trained boxers
TLDR
Findings reveal the negative effect of fatigue on punch force production, and provide evidence that lower-body and trunk force are important for generating punch force.
A Comparison of Plyometric and Jump Rope Training Programs for Improving Punching Performance in Junior Amateur Boxers
Improving lower extremity sports performance may contribute to punching performance in boxers. We compared the effects of two typical boxing routines for developing lower extremity sports performance
Relationship Between Bench Press Strength and Punch Performance in Male Professional Boxers.
TLDR
This study investigated the relationship between punching performance and the velocity at which different loads were lifted during the bench press (BP) exercise in 12 professional boxers to determine the maximal punching velocity (PVmax), and found that RA PVmax was correlated with the BP velocity at all submaximal intensities (p < 0.05).
A damaging punch: Assessment and application of a method to quantify punch performance
Measurement of punch performance in a reliable, quantitative manner is relevant to combat sport, military, and concussion research. A punching protocol (3MPT) was developed, based on performance
The Influence of Body Mass, Training Age and Fighting Stance on Isometric Neck Strength Symmetry of Male Amateur Boxers
TLDR
The neck strength of boxers differs among the weight divisions, but only in FLX, and general trends indicate heavier boxers have marginally weaker necks.
Kinematic and Kinetic Analysis of Throwing a Straight Punch: The Role of Trunk Rotation in Delivering a Powerful Straight Punch
Powerful straight punches create strategic advantage for boxers. However, there is discrepancy in theoretical and practical understandings of how to deliver powerful straight punches. This paper
Upper Limb Muscles Activity during Punches in Virtual Reality Exergame on Standing and Sitting Position
TLDR
The VR EXG "Fitness Boxing" Nintendo Switch™ can be done in a standing or sitting position to get similar effect on the upper limb muscles, wherein the lower limbs are contributor for effective punches.
Physical Response to Pad- and Bag-Based Boxing-Specific Training Modalities.
TLDR
The pad routine was more physiologically demanding, but less mechanically demanding than the bag routine, and the triaxial and medial-lateral data were higher in the punch bag trial, while the PLTotal, PLML, and vertical PlayerLoad were significantlyHigher in the lumbar region when compared with the cervical region.
X-FACTORS IN STRAIGHT PUNCHES
Straight punches are proven to be one of the most effective punches in Wing especially when boxers aim for far-reaching targets. Powerful straight punches require boxers to produce a series of force
Application of a Validated Innovative Smart Wearable for Performance Analysis by Experienced and Non-Experienced Athletes in Boxing
TLDR
This study, through use of the sensor system, aligns with the results of existing publications conducted in laboratory conditions, in the assessment of punch force, punch speed and punch time and thus extends the state of research by use of a smart wearable in field method.

DIFFERENCES IN LEAD AND REAR HAND PUNCHING FORCES, DELIVERED AT MAXIMAL SPEED RELATIVE TO MAXIMAL FORCE, BY AMATEUR BOXERS
TLDR
Punching force for the maximal speed punches with the lead hand to the head and body were significantly lower compared to the rear hand and rear and lead hand punches delivered for maximum force were greater.
Development of a boxing dynamometer and its punch force discrimination efficacy
TLDR
The boxing dynamometer discriminated eff ectively between punching performance at three standards of performance and between the punching force of the rear and lead hands.
Electromyographic activity of a muscular group in movements specific to boxing.
TLDR
Analysis of results has shown a higher commitment of the trapezius; in the jab considerable deltoid activity was evident and in the upper-cut little commitment of dentate and triceps.
