Push-ups are a great exercise to improve your Taekwondo strength
(i.e. punching power and grappling strength). This page provides
exercise instructions on how to do a variety of different
push-ups. Each type of push-up is good for concentrating on
specific body areas (i.e. triangle or diamond push-ups put
greater emphasis on your triceps) or adding greater "explosive
power" (i.e. the plyometric push-up).
For additional upper & lower body strengthening exercises,
please visit the
Strength Training section.
