So I’ve been playing video games lately. The Star Wars The Old Republic free trial to get specific. Anyways, I’ve learned that an important concept in role playing games is damage per second (DPS). I got curious and wondered how much “DPS” I could dish out with boxing. I had a friend time me for 15 seconds while cycling through 1. jab 2. cross 3. left hook 4. right uppercut. I was really sore from previous workouts and only got 53 punches in those 15 seconds. I’m curious what everyone here can put up.
The only rules are:
- 15 second time limit
- Must cycle through jab, cross, left hook, right uppercut (the numbers will obviously be better if you just do repeated jabs or left hook-right uppercut only)
- Full range of punches with good technique. They should have enough power to at least snap a guy’s head back.
- Closed fists (the numbers will obviously be better with open hands because you’re looser)
- No gloves
