I have seen and heard about a 3-4 inch "trigger step" forward and to the left when throwing the right hand. I have been experimenting with it and really like it. I am trying to get the mechanics down.
I use this step if I am going to throw a lead right. It helps to get into range with the step and the step really aids in shoulder and hip rotation and sets me up for a left hook. I also use it when I feint a jab and step in with the right.
My question is what about with the 1-2 from the edge of range?? I always would step in with the jab, then I would be planted more or less for the right. It feels weird taking a step in with the jab and another step for the right. Or would it be step in, jab, step and throw the right??
What are your thoughts on the "trigger step"?
Thanks in advance.
