BOXING 101 : TURNING OVER YOUR PUNCHES



Boxers are taught when throwing punches to rotate there fists inward just before impact... This is a very important part of proper punching technique, here are few reasons why.


1. Wrist and elbow protection: Turning your fist over places your wrist in a position that is able to endure more force and prevents the hyperextension of your elbow. This will Allow you to hit harder without injuring your elbow or wrist.

2. Increased Reach: Rotating your hand starts a chain reaction that incorporates your shoulder and core into the punch making you more stable allowing you to throw further without falling off balance

3. Punching power:  The rotation of your fists invites your entire upper body into the punch allowing you to land with much more force

4. Defence:  this rotation leads to your shoulder rotating up and towards your chin, keeping it protected from counter punches when exchanging

This month at The Sweat Science we are going to be focusing on boxing stance fundamentals.

Here are a couple reasons why it's a good idea to fully develop your boxing stance and some of the benefits you will notice when you do.

A proper boxing stance will......

- Give you power in each hand but still allow you to efficiently defend yourself from counter punches

- Give you good range with both hands while not making you vulnerable by reaching with your punches, forcing you off balance

- Allow you to throw a variety of punches from a balanced position without leaving you exposed

- Give you the ability to switch between offensive and defensive movement at any given time without getting tripped up or falling off balance
