Most conditioning videos contain exercises that increase the strength and explosiveness of your techniques, from punches and kicks to parries and blocks, but this is only one aspect of conditioning training.
In Power Control: Increasing the Power and Effectiveness of Striking Techniques, Wim Demeere shows you how to take control of your power. The more you train to become stronger, the more you should train to control your power. It is useless to have a lot of power if you don’t know how to control it. Likewise, it is equally useless to have a lot of control if you don’t have the necessary power to apply the strikes.
Demeere recommends that you think of conditioning training (e.g., squats, bench presses, plyometrics) as a way of getting a bigger gun in your arms: the bigger the gun, the more you can increase the firepower. The drills and exercises shown in this video will teach you how to keep that bigger gun under control and aim it effectively at targets. From upper to lower body, Demeere’s curriculum will put you in control of your power, through 3D push-ups, hang-walking, horse stance, and Superman progression to opening/closing rotations, absorbing the kicks, spear training, and applying the movements effectively.
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that more is better and focus only on building your strength. Always think beyond that – train your body to achieve better control of your enhanced power.
