Martial arts is regarded as the pinnacle of holistic human fitness. Martial arts generally requires strength, flexibility, power, breathing control, awareness, speed, muscle memory, and overall superb kinesthetic control.  To achieve this is a martial artist will practice techniques, exercises, adequately stretch, and eat a very nutritional diet to be at their very best. Martial artists mainly focus on callisthenic exercises, plyometric exercises. and cardio exercises.

A not so commonly known training that martial arts can require is micro fracture conditioning. In order to achieve benefits from micro fracture conditioning one should on a daily basis strike a punching bag, bucket/bag of sand, and/or other materials with your shins, forearms, and hands to lightly and sufficiently damage them and make the bones repair and adapt themselves to become stronger. One should never overdue micro fracture conditioning and truly fracture their bones. Fully breaking a bone causes one’s bones to become permanently a lot weaker. Micro fracture conditioning is also known/rumored for causing the nerves to gain a higher resistance to feeling pain.

Another key player in strengthening bones is by compressing the bones. Some of the top outstanding ways to compress the bones is with weight bearing activities such as hiking with a backpack, weight lifting (concentric workouts), stair climbing, and even weight resistance dancing or martial arts. One must also have a steady intake of minerals and vitamins to support the needed repair and adaption of one’s bones. Major players in bone nutrition are vitamin k, magnesium, and phosphorus.
