Weight transferring, foot placement and reloading punches:
This drill, worked with @zhenhonglv625
today, is to help fighters understand the importance of transferring weight while punching, especially while throwing two punches in a row with the same hand.
The idea is to shift your weight between your front and back foot (about a 60/40 split) to help generate power while also conserving energy.
First we have 3 strikes with left hand: a jab, an uppercut, and a hook. On this jab the weight is fairly even, but as the uppercut is being loaded the weight transfers to the front foot and stays there as the uppercut is thrown and reloaded. Then as the hook is being thrown the weight shifts to the back foot. The weight stays on the back foot as we start the punches on the right hand (the rear uppercut). After reloading the uppercut, the weight transfers back on to the front foot for the cross.
Finally this can all only be possible if the feet are lined up in an intelligent way as to stay balanced throughout punching and weight transferring. *Side note* A byproduct of this weight transferring is getting the head off line.
