You would be much better served by putting something on the receiving end of your hard punches. Try a heavy bag otherwise you will end up tearing apart your joints.

You're hyperextending and as Borrek says you need to start hitting a heavy bag, not just the air.

realy thanks for the advice , but i thought joints would only hyperextend if there were extra weight on your arms

I remember watching my elbow hyperextend as it happened. Peter, I don't think you can hyperextend anything just by punching air, but I believe it'll increase the chances of it happening.

Full on power striking with no target to absorb the energy is a terrible idea, and will screw you joints fast.

If you watch shadow boxing, the hands are loose, and there is much more emphasis on footwork and body movement. Its what its for, not power demonstration.

Get a punch bag for full power striking, or suffer injury from your invisible oponents.
