There were two purposes to this study. Firstly, a test was devised to measure the anaerobic power output of arm punching. Secondly, the Wingate anaerobic arm cranking test was used to assess the relationship between the maximal anaerobic power and capacity produced using this test, and the anaerobic power output produced using the innovative arm punching test. The arm punching test and the Wingate test were the independent variables. The anaerobic power output, maximal anaerobic power and capacity were the dependent variables. The testing sample consisted of a group of amateur boxers (n =5). A non-significant (p<.05) correlation coefficient of r = 0.55 was found between the anaerobic power output using the arm punching test and the maximal anaerobic power using the Wingate test.
