practice kicks while wearing legs weights; the added strain on your ligaments and tendons can cause injury.





About trying punches with weights on would that help becasue i tryed it once and it put cuts on my hands. Can you strain ligaments and tendons?

Yes, the added weight plus the force of your punch/kick puts a great amount of stress on your tendons and ligaments.

Shadow boxing/kicking puts on enough stress as is; because you are not hitting anything, your body is forced to absorbed the amount of energy you create, vs a heavy bag.

Don't use them that way----years down the road, your joints will thank you.

You could also consider to do some rope jumping with weights, you will train your upperleg and knees with this exercise.

Cheers
