BACK MUSCLES: Rotate balance and stabilize the body
Horizontal Pulling Exercises
Martial artists require a great deal of core strength and a solid base of strength from the Upper body muscles.
The back also functions as a total body core muscle by holding your body together and combining the power generated by all your limbs. Another little known (BUT VERY IMPORTANT) fact is that the back helps a lot in punch recovery–which is the speed of how fast you can pull your hand back after a punch.
In this video we will show you correct execution of the horizontal pull and the muscles involved.
Remember that with correct form and execution of the movement comes results!
