Krav Maga Workouts

Top 5 Krav Maga Workouts 

Krav Maga is a fully functional system that is used for hand to hand combat training in the military and throughout the world by many Police and Security professionals.

To be able to defend yourself it is also important taht you understand that to be a fully functional fighter you will also need a base level of strength, stamina and endurance.

Here are some of our favourite workouts that the Krav Maga practitioner can do from home.

1. Krav Wod “Morph” 

For time:

  • 100 kicks
  • 100 Pull-ups
  • 200 Push-ups
  • 300 Squats
  • 100 kicks

This is based on a great workout from Crossfit which covers all the basics. If you can’t do the full workout then you can scale it down, for example instead of a 100/200/300 split you can do a 50/100/150 split.

Score: time it took you to complete all the reps.

2. Quick Krav Maga WOD

For time:

  • 21-15-9 reps of:
  • 4 punch and sprawl
  • Ring dips
  • Push-ups

There is a solid focus on upper body strength in this workout. Time yourself and then next time try to beat that time whilst keeping to strict form.

3. Krav Workout Number 3 

EMOM for 30 min:

  • 5 Pull-ups
  • 10 Push-ups
  • 10 Right roundhouse kicks
  • 10 left roundhouse kicks

This is a solid bodyweight only workout which sees you repeating the circuit every minute on the minute. If you can’t keep up then just see how many circuits you can do in 30 minutes of pull-ups, push-ups and squats.

Score: time it took you to complete all the reps.

4. Sandbag Workout

For time:

100 clean and press with a 20kg sandbag. From the floor to a full press, this is a simple but great full body workout especially if you are stuck for time! On every minute, drop the bag and hit the heavy bag with 10 hard hooks.

5.  Krav WOD 

AMRAP for 20 minutes:

  • 5 Pushups
  • 10 Squats
  • 15 Pull-ups
  • 20 Sprawls

Pushups, pull-ups, sprawls and squats are the measure of this workout. Do as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can. If you struggle with pull ups you can use an assistance band to help you or you can use a kettlebell and do some towel rows.

Score: Number of reps completed.
