I would guess that shodowboxing will help your form and help you feel more relaxed when you throw your punches. Go at a pretty slow pace so you are just naturally throwing them, not trying too much with your speed or anything, just stay relaxed shadowbox.

youre probly using your core muscles too much and not enough of your hips. make sure then when you turn your body into the hook, youre powering with your legs first, then your core. know what i mean?

Youll loosen up in time. There is no hurrying what can only be learned in time.

I doubt he's even using the core and its all upper body. Very good advice though with the lower body. punches start from legs to pivot hips and core to throw the hook and not just the upper body.

If you are to tight up top your punches will lack power, speed, and explosiveness.

You need to turn some music up shadow box just practicing throwing punches from the legs and using the hip. Go on the heavy bags and practive throwing hooks to the body and use the similiar motion to throw up top by rasing the arm instead.

Jab and hook the double end bag. You can't be tense and get your arm around fast enough to hit it. Take all the power off, and just go for speed.
