Footwork, speed, and power

When you train 3 punches combo, you can train the following ways:

1. 1 step 3 punches.
2. 1 step 2 punches, 1 step 1 punch.
3. 1 step 1 punch, 1 step 2 punches.
4. 3 steps 3 punches (1 punch per step).

This way your you can train speed (1 step 3 punches), and power (1 step 1 punch). At the same time you have also trained all 3 footwork for

- 1 step,
- 2 steps, and
- 3 steps.

You can cover footwork training, speed training, and power generation training.

What's your opinion on this training method?
I'm still allergic to "push".

I like this type of training method, especially when training alone, so long as "step" can mean a step in any direction, including pivot steps and kicks
