I have Hyper-extended my elbow using a jab but only once, it is painful.

Focused today on my jab, as this topic has expanded my oppion and appreciation for them.

Being a Friday and all with an intense week of training, it was nice for a change exploring the jab with all its vatiations and application.

Shadow boxing, heavy bag and hanging a thin thera band with a knot tied to one end, to move around and snap jabs at from different levels and angles.

I liked the jab practice session, as having the time to work on correcting flared elbows and keeping the rear hand up to guard the chin.

With these two mistakes or aspects seem to start appearing and popping up that need constant correcting.

As with boxing there are many aspects to keep aware of, if not the defence and offensive will start to crumble under pressure.

Boxing being very simple on paper there are many habits to become ingrained towards becoming an effective fighter, jabbing is just one of them.
