Knuckle Push ups are good because they help your knuckles get stronger. Drinking milk would also help to make your bones stronger and your punches would be stronger too.
Knuckle push ups also help you make the skin on your knuckles stronger, so that, when you punch, you won’t get cut or hurt as easily.
You know your foot, the hard bit, it is quite hard to cut that part open by kicking someone else isn’t it?
So that’s why it is good to do knuckle push ups, so that you can hurt the person that you are punching more! The downsides are that your knuckles will probably not be as silky or smooth. But, when your tough skin saves you one day, I think it’ll definetly be worth it. Right or wrong?
It is also good to give harder punches, for example, if someone were to punch you with silky smooth, soft, thin skin and hands, it would hurt, right, not imagine someone with tough and thick skin, it would probably hurt a little more, wouldn’t it.
So, the tougher your knuckles get, the stronger your punches become and always remember WHY you are doing martial arts, there is no point in doing anything if you don’t have a reason to do it. HOW you are going to do it and WHEN you want to be a black belt by.
The Dangers of Knuckle Push-Ups
The bad thing about knuckle push-ups is that, well, it hurts. You may also get arthritis in your knuckle joints as you grow old. I have not found a definite answer if this is really true, but you may want to take care not to overdo it.
