Martial Arts Strength Training - Videos & Instructions

Here are instructions for a wide range of martial arts strength training exercises. They will enhance your upper body, lower body and core strength. In turn, these strength training exercises will help to improve your punching power, kicking power and grappling techniques.

On your "off days" when you do not have your regular martial arts classes, you will need to cross-train and develop your strength in order to maximize your potential as a martial artist. Try to mix up martial arts and sports strength training exercises in order to work on different muscles and moderate the potential for training burnout and boredom. You should also alternate your exercise focus areas in order to allow for muscle recuperation days (i.e. Monday focus on upper body strength training, Tuesday focus on lower body, etc.) in order to reduce the potential for overuse injuries and to maximize muscle recovery and improvement.

Before any strength training, martial artists should stretch and warm-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. 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.
