Overall Conditioning Part 1: Strength Training

Strength training is a critical part of any conditioning program, whether you’re doing it to improve your martial arts performance, or just for overall good health. The good news is you don’t need a gym or a lot of space to keep up your routine. Push-ups strengthen arms, shoulders and core. Work your way up to fingertip push-ups to increase hand and finger strength for advanced martial arts movements. Standing on one foot with arms extended holding hand weights not only increases arm, leg and core strength, but also improves balance for improved martial arts agility.
