This is a great exercise for building upper body power and strength. It is fundamental to those who train in the combat sports. This plyometric also builds coordination and helps to reinenforce the concept, 'keep your hands up.' If you seek more punching power, give this exercise a try. I do series of 30 second intervals, sometimes 6 rounds, often super-setted with other exercises. This is a core exercise in most private training sessions at POW! MMA and a regular amongst our circuit training classes.
