This was a highly requested workout and I know you are going to love it! This KICK BOXING HIIT workout for fat BURN will get you sweating and feeling so good.
Cardio kickboxing adds that element of following along with a certain combination, in a fast pace, but also offers the user the feeling of power and strength, using defensive fighting moves that gets the heart pumping and the body sweating!
The difference between cardio kickboxing and regular kickboxing on a heavy bag, is that with cardio kick, you will move in a fast pace, switching up the moves rather quickly. You really want to get an idea how the movement works before hand, so you know what you should be feeling during the moves.
A couple pointers:
- always keep your abdominals engaged, drawing your bellybutton in, core nice and strong
- try and keep you 'guards' up the entire time, in a fist, thumbs out
- try and always look in the direction of your kicks/jabs when doing the moves
- don't forget to breathe
- start doing the moves without the jumps, once you master that, add the jumps if you can
- HAVE FUN!!

Curtsy lunge punch: Begin with your feet are shoulder-width apart step your leg back into a curtsy the back of your knee gently touches the floor bring your feet back together and perform a bicep curl into a punch
