also....you throw the jab...left shoulder goes out..right hand gets "loaded up" in a safe way...throw the right..left hand comes back as the body position turns...now you are in perfect position to throw the left hook.... however....if you are planning on coming out of the pocket. LIke say you just hit a guy 4 times...jab cross hook right...but he is strong as a ox and you dont want to get into a brawl..you can step out of the pocket with a jab.
Great way of explaining something I do repeatedly. If I'm staying put, I throw the hook. If I'm stepping out I throw the jab.
