How do you develop speed?
 
Exactly:How do you develop your speed?While Stevie Wonder can see the object in developing striking power, I believe that speed and defensive tactics cannot be ignored. So I am asking those of you in the MMA forum:how do you go about really developing amazing speed?:thumbsup: Ferdelance

I suggest using weighted gloves, it worked for me. Though my standup isn't that good, a quick jab is a necesity for any fighter.

there are many ways of developing hand speed...first and foremost u need to learn proper punching technique and to punch while ur arm is relaxed....and trow punches as short as u can....

a great tool for increasing hand speed are elastic bands....trowing punches with bands will help u a lot....

fast push ups are also very good...

and lifting with very light weights as fast as u can....

Functional strength, speed, and power can be targeted using resistance bands. Make sure you tie them tight. Thursday, while rushing, I failed to double check my band and it came loose coming from up underneath my left (practicing left hooks) catching me in my eye(OOOWWWW! @#%*&!!)

From the pole, secure your (depending on what punches you are practicing) arm in the band "loop" and begin throwing whatever punch you are practicing keeping sure to fully rotate your upper and lower torso and pivoting on the appropriate foot (left foot for left hooks and right foot for right hooks) just as if you were hitting someone for real.

What I do is concentrate on the rotation of the upper /lower torso, WITHOUT EXTENDING THE ARM, in the proper direction of the punch pivoting on the corresponding foot.

5 to 10 lb medicine ball training can be used in addition to other training methods used to target speed and power for punching.

Try this on for size. Simulate a punch by pressing an open hand against a wall in the motion of the punch being thrown. I recommend using a doorway and, from an orthox or unorthodox position, press your open hand into the wall starting at the beginning of the punch, and hold for 5 seconds, then move back a half step to simulate midpunch range and hold for another five seconds. Next grip your ball in in open hand. Stand back from a brick wall or other hard flat wall-like surface and launch the ball, using technique and proper punching motion, into the wall.

Repeat this motion with the ball 6 times for 3 sets. As you develop power and speed you'll be stepping back further and further from the wall (even using a heavier ball!) to launch the med ball while consistently creating the same, and even more impact!

Lastly, be sure you are maintaining proper punching technique while performing the launches to train yourself to fight thru exhaustion while still maintaining snap, speed, and power in your shots.

Medicine balls can be purchased at Walmart, Kmart or other sporting goods stores for as little as 20 bucks for a 5 to 8 lb. ball.

Happy throwing!!

what do you mean shorten your punches do you mean not fully extend, because you will be compromising alot of power for speed
