Default Re: Left Hook- palms down or facing inward?

I throw them thumb up and elbow down. Originally I used the more traditional elbow right up and palm down but found this slow and painfull on the shoulder. Once I switched I started landing hooks far more regularly, I think you don't see it coming as much.

The hooks in this video of Ike Quartey training are a good example of what I mean:

Edit: forgot to add the reason for my post. I wanted to get coaches opinions of hooking like this. Is it technically wrong? My coach prefers the more traditional way but I figure if it feels natural and is more effective then it can't be bad. I just wanted some more input.
