Sit-Ups for Taekwondo Core Strength

A traditional sit-up is another great exercise to build your Taekwondo core strength. This page shows you how to do a sit-up exercise. For more powerful Taekwondo kicks (i.e. spinning hook kicks), you need to work on your torque or twisting power in order to have more powerful "wind-ups". In order to improve your torque, you will need to strengthen your core muscles (such as your stomach, lateral obliques/side muscles and lower back). However, remember to check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.

Also visit our main Strength TrainingWarm-Up, Speed Training, Stamina & Conditioning and Explosive Power pages for more Taekwondo strength training ideas.
