Overview

The left hook is a boxing punch thrown with the left arm. It is a powerful punch that can be used to knock out an opponent. To throw a left hook, start with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Your left foot should be forward. Rotate your hips and shoulders to the left, and then swing your left arm up and around in a circular motion. As your arm comes around, snap your elbow and extend your hand so that your fist is facing your opponent. Your left hook should land on your opponents jaw or temple, This exercise targets the shoulders as the main muscle group. The deltoids, trapezius, and rotator cuff muscles are all involved in throwing a left hook.
