Default How do I get better direct control of my hips?

Like to turn my hips 1st I have to have some kind of mental cue like putting out a cigarette with my foot.

I cant just rotate my hips 1st on demand like I do with say rotating the torso.

How do I just move my hips 1st without some mental cue?

How do I learn how to do this? Any drills etc?

The ****? You can't move your hips in isolation.

You need to chill man. You can learn a lot of this stuff through practice/experimenting in the gym.

Haha ... must say I love your posts and love your enthusiasm.

It would be great if every lad that walked into our gym had the same motivation to learn.

Good luck mate.

the best way i do is let your hip throw the punch. theres a video on youtube on ellie secbachs channel about it just type in "how to throw a powerful Hook" and ever since i did this my punches are flowing more and much more snap in them

The only way to rotate ur hips is to rotate/pivot the balls of ur feet. So, forget about thinking about rotating the hips. Just think about the mental cigarette cue.
