Strenthening and Form drill

1. Get into a horse stance or a squatted position
2. Flex your elbows and fingers like you would to get into your defensive stance. Hyperextend your arms so that your fists are against your ribs.
3. From this position throw one punch at a time
4. Do a few rounds of ten

This drill will help to improve your punches and make sure they are straight and fully extended. It will also build strength in your upper legs.  The muscles worked by staying in a squatted position are thighs, hips, butt, and hamstrings (biceps femoris, semimembranosus, and semitendinosus)
