Could push ups and pull ups increase punch speed and power for when doing MMA?

Could push ups and pull ups increase punch speed and power for when doing MMA?

Probably not much: Might help with power but not speed. Generally the power in a punch comes from the hip rotation and not the arms (ask a karate or kung fu instructor to explain/demonstrate this - or try punching without rotating your hips!). Speed comes from being relaxed as you initially throw the punch and not tightening your arm until just before impact. If your muscles are tense you can't throw a fast punch! ...Read more

Weights gym safe disc bulge L 4 5 mirror doing leg press that seated and squats and lunges I no got build up core?

Back pain: Lunges and squats really put a lot of stress on the low back. You risk converting a bulging disc into a herniated disc. Isometric exercises are better to build the core muscles. A weight lifting belt can protect the low back if you have to do the lunges and squats. Consult with a personal trainer to avoid further injury to the low back. ...Read more

Carpal canal + pain on shoulders +triangle above collar bone between neck & shoulder that pumps up like gel filled when raise arms lemon size.related?

No and yes: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a compression syndrome at the wrist and can therefore not be caused by a lesion in the chest or neck. But... There is a condition known as a " double crush syndrome" in which the nerve can be pressed somewhere else and make your carpal tunnel syndrome more symptomatic.

Could bicep curls make arms muscular?

Could bicep curls make arms muscular?

Good choice: Some of this is genetic. You'll want to go to the gym and do 3 sets of 10 reps of the most weight you can handle. Do others that build your triceps, even pushups. Ask your physician whether an electronic muscle stimulator and/or creatine are appropriate for you. Big muscles are fun; most women are even more attracted to a man who's fit, trim and defined, and to how you treat other people. ...Read more

How can one build bicep and tricep muscles with dumbells?

Alternating motions: Always work biceps and triceps on the same day alternating. I would recommend including the shoulder since this links to the arms. Do triceps extensions and dumbbell curls. Make sure to do a thorough warm up so you don't hurt your rotator cuff or other joints. ...Read more
