If you look it up on the internet there are actually workouts designed to enhance your punching power. www.askmen.com has one.

Also, just punch a punching bag. It helps with a lot of things. You'd be surprised.

For speed, go down to a batting cage and clock your punch, then keep trying to beat your last time. This works amazingly good, and you can actually see your results instead of just assuming you are faster.

For power, punch with resistance bands and keep lifting weights and working the heavy bag. Work on plyometrics, not brute force.

I could explain plyos to you, but instead of typing 500+ words, I think I'll just send you to my good friend Google. Google the word "plyometrics." They will probably explain it better anyways. Speedbags are cool, but try to get a speedball instead (the ones with the bungee between the floor and ceiling). They have quicker action and a larger range of motion.
