hey all, for those of you who do not know, i am a rabid boxing fan(i,m Cuban ya know) and as a teenager i boxed a little bit(very little!) and a few years ago i joined a boxing gym trained some in an effort to get into better shape, as traditional “cardio” is too boring.
well feb 2007 i ruptured my triceps tendon in my left arm, and have not put on the gloves since. my arm is not nor never will be a hundred percent again, but is good enough for me to try to train with the gloves again i think.
a few days ago i went to my old gym and hit the bag for 3 rounds, (shit! i am way out of shape, this killed me) and it felt ok, i just can not throw a left jab with any sort of power. i can hook still, but now real jab.
my old coach retired, and his son is running the place now, and he is sort of a dick, he does not like to answer questions, much less actually “coach” anybody who is not paying him personally, or one of his pro fighters. so i am coming here to ask some questions.
like i said, i cant throw a hard left jab anymore. my elbow is too jacked, now i am not at this time thinking about sparring again, but if i do in the future, should i think about practicing hitting the bag with a southpaw stance, so i can hook and jab with my lead right, and use my left more for defense and the occasional hook and uppercut?
thanks in advance
