    I use a variety of drills to help my students improve their leg strength and condition the hip muscles.

    Thought i'd share this one and would be interested to see what other instructors do.

    Besides the usual staples like deadlifts (I like Trap deads), lunges and hip thrusts, I like resistance bands for leg and hip addictions. I just got a really good book "Delavier's Mixed Martial Arts Anatomy" for exercises targets to specific martial arts.

    It has really helped me develop strength in the right area of the leg. Traditional leg exercises focus on the big muscle groups and this isolates the correct muscles to support your technique.

    its a very thin shin guards and used for keeping the shin in a healthy conditioning way .
    Suggest to do it in this way when near days a fight ,repeatedly kicking also often provocates skin infection so ,must be careful on this kind of training
    this train must be a part of a fighter program
