    a quick question, sometime when i miss some punches, my arm tends to jar up at the elbow, sort of like a hyper extension, any1 no any stretches or anything else to prevent this happening?

    My guess is you over stretched or hyper-extended and that's why it feels that way. Stretching is important but what is more important is never fully locking out your joints - it can cause pulls and tears and leaves you open to traps and breaks.

    Maybe try some tendon/legiment aiding excersizes such as the almighty bicep curl.

    You only need to a couple times a month though. Go heavy weight and only a few partial reps per set.

    I am not trying to be smart or funny but I have very basic question for you: What stops your punch?

    Your answer to this will tell me everything I need to know about how you punch and the mechanics you use.
