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

I tried palm down on the bag tonight because Achilles said it was a good idea and the dude's pretty smart. I was able to generate a lot more pressure on the inside knuckle, while I may still use palm in on some head shots I think for a painful body shot palm down is the way to go. I've quit throwing body shots except for flare in my past few fights because they just didn't seem to be doing any damage, and my fights are too short to use the shots to wear them down. I think turning my palm down on the hooks may have been the trick I needed. I actually walked away from the bag with sore knuckles..I don't pack a lot of power so normally that doesn't happen.

Keep in mind I was throwing these shots short and very close, both right and left.
