Your point on adrenaline is also well-taken. One of my KK instructors told me that we train our cardio intervals for 5 minute rounds (instead of the actual 3 minutes needed in KK tournaments) because the heightened anxiety of being in a live tournament bout will sap your energy so much that a person having trained for 5 minute rounds will only be effective for about 2-3 minutes.
Another real life example - one of my friends worked as a security guard in nightclubs for a few years and witnessed fights on a regular basis. He said that the general pattern was that people would through 4-5 punches each and then quickly run of gas, then wait to be separated by their friends so that they could catch their breath.

One range on a long lever.
Keep the joints lubricated with fluid by feeding them thru diet and exercise.
Move it or lose it.
Breathe in while storing energy, your outside is solid and inside soft; then breathe out when punching out with the outside soft (and elastic) and inside solid (Qi sinks to the Dan Tian). When breathing in Qi moves upwards and when breathing out Qi sinks downward.
