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
