Your Home Workout Area

A big part of your martial arts training is working out at home. Make sure you have an in-home workout space that helps you get the most out of your practice time. Here are some ideas to help you get started…

Clear a space about 15 feet by 15 feet for working on forms, basic motions, kicks, and boxing techniques.

If your ceiling is high enough, you can practice bo form and kali. Avoid injuries and damage to your surroundings by making sure your kicks, punches, and weapons don’t strike any walls or furniture.

Get your heart rate elevated with running, biking, skiing, or walking. Cardio workouts can involve rope skipping, running in place, a jogging trampoline, or a treadmill, exercise bike, or elliptical machine. Another great form of cardiovascular exercise is doing multiple repetitions of your forms!

Weight training, calisthenics, and strength training help to add power to your kicks, punches, and striking techniques. If you use a weight bench, be sure to train with a partner who can spot your lifts for safety. Resistance bands, free weights, weight machines, and dumbbells help you get a great workout and are adaptable to a lot of different exercises.
