Uppercut Method pros\cons
So I was originally always trained to throw my uppercuts strait up with my arm at 90 degree angle, using leg\back lift for most the travel, combined with a slight raise in my hand from about my jaw (maybe lower) to just above eye level.
Now after a few year hiatus because I moved away from the gym I trained at, I have started at a new gym and one of the people their told me it's better to throw my uppercut at about a 45 degree angle out to get more reach on it, so more swing of the arm less back\leg power.
What's your opinions of the two ways, should I stick to one and which? Or am I better off using each in different situations? What cons should I keep in mind when using either?
Is there another way I should be throwing my uppercut, or alterations I might focus on to improve it in general from the methods I described?
