Default How do you throw a long range overhand left hook?

So I can throw the overhand lead left hook when my arm is at 90 degrees, but how do you throw it optimally at long range?

Cheers!

I've never heard of the left hook referred to as the overhand lefthook. Your question is damn confusing. If you are trying to throw a left hook for a far distance (not something that is recommended unless you have crazy speed and timing), you are gonna have to jump forward ala floyd patterson, mayweather. Throw it with the thumb pointing upwards instead of towards you.

Thats some great advice thankyou!


To explain it more clearly...



You have a bog standard Left Hook thrown straight from your stance.

You have a long range left hook.

You have a cork screw left hook. (it has an overhand element to it)

I want to know how to do a long range cork screw left hook. So a lead left hook at long range coming diagonally down.

....really bro join a real gym. we cant help you like a real coach...your really asking to many simple questions, which makes me think you've probably never been to a gym.....you don't PLAY boxing. I would hate to see you seriously injured because someone was trolling you and told you to do something completely wrong....
