This video demonstrates 8 different combinations of kickboxing cardio intervals with 2 slow repetitions and 10 full speed repetitions. Kickboxing is intense and a fun physical workout that lays emphasis on specialised techniques of kicks, punches and blocks, delivered with full force. It is a full body workout that engages all the major muscles of your body, improving your aerobic activity and boosting your endurance. As this workout requires a high level of intensity, half an hour of this session can help you burn as much as 800-1200 calories. The best part about this workout is that you do require any equipment to do it. Kickboxing also bolsters your metabolism and pushes your body to burn fat even faster. You can also opt for High Intensity Interval Training(HIIT) for quick weight loss.
Before you get started with the workout, make sure you warm up for at least 10-15 minutes. Also, do not over-stress yourself and stop the workout immediately, if you think it is too intense for you.
