Weekend Workout – Punch Like You Mean It

I feel that a lot of people believe that punching is just an upper body exercise and/or that kicking is just a lower body exercise.

That couldn’t be farther from the truth.

In order to throw a proper & powerful punch or kick, you have to use your entire body. The movement of both strikes starts from the ground and moves up to whichever limb you’re using. The total body rotational motion needed to throw an effective strike can be practiced in the weekend workout below.

Head to the ETT YouTube channel (link) if you need further instruction on the jab + power hook and/or cross + lead uppercut hand combinations. I recommend performing the workout in interval format (30 sec work/30 sec rest) for 12-20 minutes. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

If you complete this or any weekend workout, please let us know in the comment section below OR you can send us a pic/video of you doing the workout on social media (FacebookInstagram or Twitter). ENJOY!
