Knee Lift with Palm Thrust Speed Reps
Total Body Routine
On-Line Supplement List
Builds Cardio, Abs, Back, Shoulders/Arms and Endurance.
This type of routine should be done in conjuction with other types of cardio and weight lifting.
The movement is very simple, like doing part of a front snap kick but instead you just
raise your knee up and slightly twist when level with the waist, drop your foot back to the floor and
do the other leg. Keep doing this back and forth remember to slightly twist at the top of the movement.
Do this in as fast a manner as possible. When your are used to doing this movement in a controlled
manner try to increase the speed and after a period of time start doing
a plam thrust forward with each side also. We want to do this is as fast a manner as possible for as long as possible each time you do this
type of knee lift. Some prefer to do the knee lifts separate from the Palm Thrust, but the
main thing is to do all of the work in as short a time period as possible.

Palm Thrust Twist Strike Speed Reps
Begin with your hands tucked up under your arms in the ready position hands open with
the fingers pointing upward and the heel of the palm forward, your thumbs tucked in and
the wrist area tight. Thrust you palm towards your target, striking with the heel of the palm.
Unlike other strikes there is no twisting of the arm with the palm heel strike.
Like to do these (Part 1) into a striking bag or a hand held punching bag in
combination with knee lifts.
Like to do this movement with an open hand, however some prefer to use a closed fist.
We do these movements from a fighting tee stance left (left and right) and from a flat foot stance with
feet approximately a foot to eighteen inches apart, depending on height etc.
The idea is to strike with the open hard part heel of the hand into the target
alternating from side
to side in as fast a manner under control as possible. Your plam is up by your waist in the palm fist position when you start to
strike out but with the knuckles up when you actually hit the target, sorta like a reverse punch. You can
do these with a fist in the same manner. Do these both left and right side until you
are nearly exhausted.
Next stand in front of the target flat footed strike straight out with both
hands like doing a bench press, until exhausted (work bench press) into ribs/chest so to speak.
Next stand in front of the target and thrust upward with a twisting movement from side to side
as if you were palming someone under the right chin then twist somewhat and go up under the
left chin until exhausted. You twist with each movement. After a period of time you will be getting
a lot of power into the movement when you are able to ad power from your legs, hips and lats into the upward thrust somewhat.

We are not doing these movements with a lot of force but with a lot of speed.
If you are not familiar with striking open hand style become used to the movement before you
use a lot of force or do closed hand. Be careful how you strike and what you use for a target
as we don't want you to hurt your wrist or hands. Some may want to just use air to start.
We know some who have done this for a period of time that can break boards
easily with an open hand or closed hand or fist while being on target and maintaining
speed of striking.
If you do these two movements (Knee Lifts/Palm Thrust) with the heavy hands system and free body
squats you will be in much better shape, more muscular and lose excess weight. The more twisting
and speed used for longer time periods, the better your results (abs).
You may be better able to defend yourself with a upward open palm thrust under the chin if
someone stands close to you in a threatening manner. A real fast upward palm thrust under the
CHIN can do serious damage to most people. (do unto others as you would have them do unto you.)
Knee lifts, front snap kick, side snap kicks can also hurt but require a lot of time to learn to use in an offensive manner but can be used
immediately for Cardio routines. It makes sense to lift weights and do cardio in a manner
that helps with self defense and other daily tasks.
We like to do the Palm Thrust and Knee Lifts before we do our heavy hands walk followed
with leg raises and free body squats.
