How to Use Hips and Shoulders for Boxing Combos - Olympic Coach Wayne Gordon
You do not need to be a boxing expert to know that engaging the hips is as basic to boxing. The hips are integral to throwing a powerful, yet efficient, punch. They are the engines that power the body and make hitting a target with a balled up fist possible. Most of the boxing punching power comes from the back and the shoulders, therefore, if you work on your upper body muscles, you land a powerful and fast punch. You can do workouts like shoulder press, pull-ups, and push-ups to target your shoulder and back muscles. For the perfect punch its important to understand the Balance and the center of gravity where your shoulders and hips are supposed to be.

When you throw your left hand out to the target the measuring tool your thumb's going to come off the center of your body.

And when the right hand lands that point of impact your thumb is off the center of your body. Because you're stronger off the center of your body, you're always stronger core energy the center of your body.

When you're delivering the punch, maintain your center of gravity in the middle that when the right hand fires so you can't guarantee that punch landing. You keep your feet secure to the ground. Your right heel is slightly elevated to allow you to get the full range of motion. but you want to not lift the leg heel any higher from the start to the finish. The front foot is firmly planted on the ground so that when you recoil your balance is firm intact. So it's not necessarily about how fast
your right hand goes forward, how fast your left side of your body pulls back is also important.
- Maintain your Center of Gravity
- Heel Slightly Elevated
- Do not raise Heel too high through motion
- Front Foot Firmly planted
- Focus on pulling back
