I love how kickboxing can sculpt your body while having fun and getting out some much pent up aggression. Here is a move that will tone your legs and core and burn some calories while elevating your heart rate.
Here is the breakdown of the sequence:
2. Squat deep into your heels, hips back. As you stand, do a Roundhouse kick on your Right leg–pointing your “non-kicking leg” out on a diagonal, knee over toe, pull your kicking knee up ready to extend the leg out to the side and snap the foot in/out.
3. Squat deep into your heels, hips back and hold. Then, do 3 Back kicks–alternating legs, making sure you pull the knee back in before you set the foot on the floor.
Repeat this on the other side. I suggest going back and forth at least 5 times before you rest and attempt it again. Be sure you engage your core throughout. It will support your back while kicking and squatting!
