Many fighters think that the hook has nothing to do with the wrist. It’s a huge mistake, because nothing is separate in martial arts. Each muscle group and tendon work as a whole.
The problem is that many people don’t notice the huge disproportion between their wrist and biceps, triceps and forearms. When training biceps, they forget that the proportion in strength between wrist and biceps should be 60% wrist, 40% biceps. Remember that the first thing to move after “Ready, go!” is the wrist. If the balance of strength is improper, one cannot use their biceps a 100%, and wrist injury is right around the corner. Then again, if the wrist has the 70-80 % advantage over biceps, elbow, biceps and triceps injuries are your certain future.
Preparing your arm to a tournament is a work of art in a way.
