3 Power Drills To Improve Your Kicks For MMA

3 Power Drills To Improve Your Kicks For MMA

One thing I’ve learned about martial arts over the years is that the repetitive act of kicking and punching will make you more supple and better able to handle moving the iron in the weight room. The same is true if we reverse that statement as well. Moving the iron well will also make your kicks and punches much much better along with including power drills into your training.

However, even though this is the case during my career I’ve also observed that many martial arts practictioners and competitive fighters will emphasize the practice of the specific skills of their fighting, but will often times neglect incorporating sound elements of strength and conditioning into their program in order to optimize their fight performance. Today I’m going to offer you 3 strength and speed drills to take your kicks to the next level.

3 Top HIIT Workouts For MMA Fitness

3 Top HIIT Workouts For MMA Fitness

  1. Do you feel that your fitness level and conditioning have hit a plateau?
  2. Do you feel like you’re not improving with your MMA and Combat skills as fast as you should?
  3. Aside from being functional for fitness, MMA, and Combat are you also frustrated that you aren’t leaning out and developing a lean body composition from your training?
  4. Are you familiar with HIIT workouts?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then this article (particularly with question 4 relating to HIIT Workouts) then this should be of great help to you. So everybody is hung up on the high intensity programs these days and as a strength coach I’ve always had a love–hate relationship with this because I think some training fads tend to get blown out of proportion. I think this is because with the tremendous influx of information due to the internet it often seems like people tend to offer solutions to training by painting with a broad brush, or by defaulting to metaphorically trying to use a hammer for both nails and screws.

3 Push Up Variations For MMA Punching Power

3 Push Up Variations For MMA Punching Power

To start I think you can agree that push up variations can be a huge asset to your training program, particularly if you need to be innovative due to a lack of equipment and resources. In addition to this push ups are pretty much inherently a combat and fight driven type of exercise. This can be easily observed in these relative training settings.

5 Unique Strength Drills To Enhance MMA Performance And Serious Fitness

So lately I’ve been working hard to demonstrate to people the significance of dynamic strength drills and how they play such a huge role in not only building athleticism, but also in helping people to develop a truly optimal level of fitness. This can be communicated by looking at how the practice of martial arts has influenced this and how it has bled into the fitness community and helped to forge some of the fittest individuals the world has ever seen. If you don’t believe me then just take a look at Bruce Lee, or any high level MMA fighter for that matter. The proof is in the pudding.
