— The Yess Boxing & Barbell Club Announces Three Boxers Going Pro by Marketwired*
Yess is doing it right. Any intelligent coach knows that a stronger, more powerful fighter is better fighter. The movements of Powerlifting (Bench, Squat, Deadlift) are the most efficient strength exercises from the standpoint of physics and biomechanics; which are the two external sciences which have the most governance over our physical movements. The power versions of the Weightlifting movements (Power Snatch, Power Clean, Jerk) are the most effective for power development.
Power is the quantifiable most important for hard, quick, and effective punches. Strength is the foundation of power. An athletes power potential is a percentage of his base max strength potential. A surplus of strength is what secures power endurance in the later rounds of a fight. Strength is also the ability on display in the clinch.
It is clear: no matter how talented a fighter is, if he gets stronger he gets better.
