Upper Body Exercises

List of Upper Body Strength Exercises

These upper body exercises are used to generate stronger punches and grappling techniques. Martial artists use these upper body exercises in order to strengthen the muscles in their chest, shoulders, back and arms. If you are looking for more traditional martial arts strength exercises (i.e. Hojo Undo), please visit the main Strength Training section.

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 exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Strength Training section.
