Instructions for Single Leg Push-Ups - Martial Arts Strength Exercise

This page provides details on how to perform a "Single Leg Push-Up". This martial arts exercise focuses on the muscles in your chest, shoulders and triceps. It also improves core strength because your abdominal muscles are engaged in order to deal with the imbalance caused by the raised leg. Therefore, it will help to increase your punching power and grappling strength. This exercise is more advanced version of a traditional push-up.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized.
