Use your hips! I don't know what style you practice, but many martial artists think punching power comes from the shoulder,chest and back. Okinawan stylists know better.

Short of actual full-contact sparring with a resisting partner, heavy bag work is the best way to train for power and conditioning in all your strikes.

Work your strikes slowly and with light contact on the bag until you are used to the resistance. It is very easy to injure yourself if your joint alignment is not correct. Use bag gloves.

Gradually increase the speed, power and duration of your workouts. When you can do 3, 3 minute rounds on the bag, you should have very good power.

Use your hips and rotate in to your punch not just your uppar body..... If you want stronger punches do 50 knukle push ups and then if you can do bench presses.......
