How To Improve Your Knee Strikes

CKO Trainer tip!

The knee is one of the most beneficial yet underutilized strikes. A proper knee strike uses your nearly every muscle in your body including your cardiovascular system.

However these benefits only occur if done properly.

Here’s the tip – slow it down! Yes slow the “speed” down and focus on power. Focus on driving your knee all the way through the bag while simultaneously pulling the bag into you!

Give it a try it is a game changer. 💪🏼
