Hi, I'm Cary Williams, and we're going over today step-by-step uppercuts in boxing. Uppercuts are important because they can come up the middle when you are actually boxing somebody so they can come up the middle between somebody's gloves that are guarding them. The uppercut is a really devastating punch and the first thing you want to think about when you throw the uppercut is that you're going to use your entire body. You are actually going to use your legs slightly when you throw your uppercuts and you want to remember to always have your hand farther out. We have this joke in boxing saying never throw an uppercut from the outside because then you end up hitting yourself. So you always want to make sure you throw the uppercut you are throwing it outward from the inside and we're going to throw a left uppercut for instance. We're going to rotate our body slightly to the left so that we can rotate the left side of our body back over to the right to throw a proper uppercut. Again we're going to use our legs with momentum to push that uppercut up and out. The arms are very relaxed in anything we do in boxing so really your body is pushing the arm up and your arm is just merely, it's like a whip basically.
