    dude. NO just don't.

    Wearing wieghts on your wrist while punching can only cause your form to suffer and joint problems

    Heavy bag drills, focus mitt drills, plyometrics. What does your weight training routine look like?

    Do you punch a heavy bag? or have any boxing training? THAT'S how you increase punching power. and you may want to read the stickies and get a better routine. That nebulous piece of crap isn't going to get you far IMO.

    The trainer at your gym doesn't know shit.

    Read the stickies.

    That's no problem.

    "Stickies" are the threads permanently at the top of the page in any forum. You're after the "Interesting Links and Threads" sticky.

    Most here love Carnal Salvation's "Treatise on the Lifting of Heavy Iron" within that sticky.

    There's also a "Basic FAQ" in the "New Member Resources" sticky that will familiarize you with any terminology you don't recognize.

    JOIN A BOXING GYM, the most important thing is good technique and lots of practice. Also your routine does suck alot of ass. Search "punching power" aswell theres tons of threads about this
