Abstract

One of the most renowned strikes within combat sports is the rear hand punch. Its impact force is subject to 5 trainable variables: (a) increase rear leg drive, (b) following the step forward, land with a rigid leg to increase breaking and transmission of forces, (c) increase the stretch-shortening cycle action of the trunk musculature, (d) increase the velocity of the punch, and (e) increase the effective mass. It is possible, through appropriate strength and conditioning programming, to target the development of each.
