    Yes but its a weak correlation.

    Punching is not like sprinting. I bet/am damn sure a high vertical leap strongly correlates with a fast sprint time.

    Punching is different.

    Will help a bit for punching its a more sport specific motion than squats since it involves lateral movement rather than vertical.

    Sometimes silly is right.

    Yup.

    That's why I don't believe in drills. I'm talking about throwing tires, swinging sledge hammers, jumping up and down on a fence post, or whatever. Train what you're going to do. Dissect it, understand it, and train every part of it to as close to perfection as possible. Then repeat, repeat, repeat until you've established a workable motor engram (what most call muscle memory).

    Every rep develops the right muscles as well as training the motor engram. Any time spent doing unrelated crap wastes valuable training time.

    Sure you can supplement with conditioning (strength and cardio), that's just common sense. But training for a specific outcome requires specific training.

    That's my opinion.

    It's all about getting the kinetic chain down for every type of punch in such a way that you get your weight into the punches and deliver them as explosively as possible so as to be punching rather than pushing.
