Drill: Striking/Sprint/Push up Drill: defender strikes pad full speed at one end of the room; on command, he sprints to the other end of the room, does 5 (or 10) push ups, then sprints back to continue punching. To make the drill a little easier, have them start with slow punches, then increase speed when they return from running; then slow down again.
