The 8 Best Cardio Kickboxing Moves

Kickboxing is one of the most taxing workouts you can do -- both mentally and physically. It requires stamina, conditioning, balance, agility and athleticism. And if you include sparring in your workout, it takes your training to a whole new level. But the best part is that you’re actually learning a new skill. What makes kickboxing so great is the high intensity, the lactic threshold training, the fast burst of energy and the interval training and the unpredictable movements, which keep you on your toes (quite literally) and your core engaged. This program was created for a beginner, but these basics are always practiced -- even by the best of the best. Once you master these eight basic moves, the combinations you can put together are endless (but we’ve included four here to get you started). A heavy bag or pads (Thai pads or focus pads) are recommended, since they allow you to throw leather with full power, increasing the intensity of your workout. However, these strikes and combos can be done in front of a mirror or in the office as well (as long as the boss isn’t watching). Make sure you warm up and stretch thoroughly before going too hard, though.
