Using elastic band to do these at home is perfect. You can put anchors on door frame, put higher and hook elastic band for punching, hook lower for kicking. Add resistance to the punching and kicking is very easy with elastic band, It's CHEAP also. After doing it, just unhook the elastic bands and put it away. This is BIG BOSS friendly also!!! Don't have to leave a mess around.
The issue is the rope used in that weight pulley is not long enough. When you release a long rope, the rope will have a short delay to drop. That drop will give you a bit surprise. Your body will need to develop natural resistance to the rope pulling. This ability in wrestling is very important. When your opponent gives you a quick and sharp pull, your body can have natural resistance.
Yeah if it works for you but the Twist is training all the core muscles, internal/ External obliques used in the video or gif he posted.This is why I built up a weight pulley at home with long rope.
That's the key. MMA is so so much more advanced, they don't do all those little "need" tricks. I can tell you, UFC gym where I live does NOT have pulley and rope on tree.Yeah if it works for you but the Twist is training all the core muscles, internal/ External obliques used in the video or gif he posted.
I mean I don't see top MMA fighters using your Set up. They're in the gym & in the ring. I can train all these muscles too with a twisting double crunch, my point being anatomy & how our muscles work as a unit don't get trained in a special manner because of a "secret" exercise training in a wood.
I don't like this exercise. I didn't think it was building my core in the way that I need it the most. I use a resistance band and do a similar motion but I use low resistance, and a chambered punch to do the twist. His movement seems closer to baseball than to punching. Even his stance is like baseball.
If you like those 2 then I got a few others that you'll like. No equipment needed, except for one exercise that uses a dumbbell. They are designed to make the person functionally stronger.One thing I mix MA into weight training is for the legs. All started out it's hard to train legs without real gym equipment. But I found two good ways.
1) I get into deep stance of Karate or TKD that the front leg is bent at about 90 degree, back leg is straight back. I walk in this stance for 7 1/2 minutes NON STOP. That's actually is one of the hardest exercise!!! It's both muscle and aerobics.
2) Walking up the stairs to the 2nd floor TWO STEPS at a time 18 times non stop.
When I gets easier, I might wear weighted jacket to do it.
I am not looking for better balance and all that, just leg muscles. Not thinking of double duty.
Oh yeh, I am always open for new ideas. You know me.If you like those 2 then I got a few others that you'll like. No equipment needed, except for one exercise that uses a dumbbell. They are designed to make the person functionally stronger.
How's your back these days?
That's "low stance walking". The 1st time that my wife did this, he hurt her legs after 1 mile walking. So you still need to be careful on this and not pushing yourself too hard.1) I get into deep stance of Karate or TKD that the front leg is bent at about 90 degree, back leg is straight back.

Ha ha, I only walk 7 1/2 minutes, no where close to one mile. My back leg is straight, not like in the picture. I put more weight on the front leg, so it work the muscle harder, but only 7 1/2 minutes.
how to destroy your knees. high rep squats ..end of story. Go in a gym, forget all the "Goofy" exercises from 200 years ago. exercise Physiology has moved on. I recommend this guys channel..
There are a lot of great uses for it. max out the weight and the setting to get max extension. It will get the spots the squats and lunge don’t get. Give it a shot. Knee lifts and pulls from oblique positions. Gotta get creative. Not just for ladies.I never used it myself but tought many
Chickswomen on the machine ..most wanted firm Buns. Still squats & Lunges are still king.
