BOXING is widely known to be one of the best cardiovascular and muscle conditioning activities. Boxing is a sport known for having athletes with fantastic footwork and amazing physical conditioning.
There are four punches in boxing, each with different purposes.
#1 JAB, designed to be a short and fast punch. It comes straight out from the hand of the front shoulder and not thrown with maximum power. It is often used as more of a “feeler” or “set up” punch to gauge distance and prepare for other punches.
#2 CROSS, thrown from the rear hand with great power. Its delivery is straight and designed to knock your opponent out.
#3 HOOK, thrown in a looping motion from the side. It is designed to “hook” around your opponents guard and strike them to the side of the head or rib cage. Throwing a hook gains power by a pivoting one’s body when throwing the punch. Many people improperly throw a hook by only rotating their shoulder, which is less powerful and can damage your arm or shoulder.
#4 UPPERCUT, can be thrown to the body or the head. This punch is brought buy shooting your fist in an upward fashion with the back of your fist towards your opponent. Like the hook, the uppercut’s power comes from inertia gained by using your body to generate power.
All punches and their delivery depend on your boxing stance, balance and leverage. The traditional boxing stance is for right-handed people with the left foot forward and the right hand back. Left-handed people box “south paw” which means your right foot is forward and left hand is back.
