    Default Full contact twists rule!

    Greetings comrades,

    I just wanted to share my experience. I have been doing full contact twists every day for two weeks and when I kicked the heavy bag tonight I was surprised by how strong my kicks were and how good my endurance was. The cool thing is I haven't kicked the heavy bag in several weeks, I have hardly practiced at all lately but tonight was great. The only thing I have done different, besided not kicking for a while, is the full contact twists.

    When I do FCTs all I get is a burn in my triceps and shoulders and alot of strain on my knees where my feet stick on the deck.

    What kind of footwear do you use and what kind of surface do you stand on? I use socks on carpet and that seems to work well.

    Default FCT form

    Com. Griff, try standing a little further back with the bar at a lower (less upright) angle. Get up on your toes to pivot, keep your glutes and abs tight, and as you come out of the bottom position on either side think of extending and lengthening your body, keeping the arms as straight as possible and generating the force with your hips. You also might try using heavier or lighter weights than you have been, since too much or little resistance can make it hard to get the right "feel". Experiment to find the right groove; it's worth the trouble to find a groove that works because, as the other comrades have noted, FCTs rule. Hope this helps.

    Comrade Griff, Try to just use your arms and shoulders to transfer the force generated by your hips. They should not quite be locked out if I remember correctly. Good luck.
    Comrade Jeff
