🥊BREAKING DOWN “THE LEAD HOOK TO BODY - HOOK TO THE HEAD”🥊 👀 Aimed at beginners
I see a lot of people struggle with this combo:
Lead hook to the body - lead hook to the head, and u should..... it’s hard to master! Deffo not something you’ll land the first attempt, but as usual, repetition will get you there and it’s a really great combo to be able to pull off.
Just like the video audio, here’s the breakdown:
🥊Hook to the body, your front leg should be loaded (meaning your bodyweight is shifted to that side)
🥊Short range hook aiming above the hip bone/below the ribs
🥊Push that hip forward, into the punch, squeezing the Glutes at the top, engaging the legs and hips for power, rather than the arm!
🥊After the punch lands, return to that loaded position you were at (right hand by face, elbow tight, left arm high)
🥊Now we finish the combo with the hook to the head, use the front loaded leg, we want to transfer the weight towards our back foot
🥊Come up high with the hook, with that elbow nice and high following the fist
🥊Twist on that front toe, to encourage your bodyweight to shift into that back foot, your hips will turn here
🥊Punch connects with the target, weight is in the back foot, back hand is up by the face, ready to follow through with the cross
There is more advance tips out there too, but for a beginner, this is a simple breakdown, give it a try, and let me know how it goes 😊😊😊
