List of Martial Arts Conditioning Exercises (with Instructions)
To be a great martial artist, you need to add sports conditioning workouts to your martial arts routine in order to build your overall endurance and stamina. The most powerful martial arts kick and fastest punch will not help you if you are out of breath late in a match and are unable to move. Therefore, we have listed a wide variety of sports and martial arts conditioning exercises that will improve your overall martial arts conditioning and endurance. Click on the exercise title in order to watch instructional videos that will teach you how to get the most of these conditioning exercises. These sports and martial arts conditioning exercises will allow you to cross train on the days when you are not practicing at your martial arts school. Moreover, they will also help to enhance your overall strength and thus improve your punching power and kicking power.
Before any strength and conditioning training, martial artists should stretch and warm-up. All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. If you have had an injury or are in pain, please see a doctor before starting any stretching or exercise program. For additional stretches and exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Physical Fitness section.
