Instructions for Eagle Claw Push Ups - Kung Fu Strength Exercise
In Kung Fu, students often utilize strikes that require strong fingers and hands (i.e. Eagle Claw and Tiger Claw). Therefore, Kung Fu students use an exercise known as an "Eagle Claw Push-Up" in order to strengthen their fingers/hands as well as their chest, shoulders, triceps, etc. Other advanced push-ups include Clapping Push-Up, Elevated Push-Up, Knuckle Push-Ups, Plyometric Push-Up, Single Leg Push-Ups, T Push-Up and Triangle Push-Up (or Diamond Push-Ups).
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized.
For instructions and videos focused on other exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Strength Training section.
