Windshield Washer

Windshield Washer – Martial Arts Strength Training

This page looks at the strength training exercise known as the Windshield Washer exercise. This is an exercise used to build up core strength. Windshield washers can also help to improve rotational power (or “torquing” power) and thus enhance martial arts kicking power and punching strength.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For more exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Strength Training page.
