This Cardio Kickboxing Workout Will Make Calories Wish They Had Never Been Born
"This 20-minute cardio kickboxing and HIIT workout will crush calories," Shane told POPSUGAR. "Combining punches and kicks with lower-body HIIT drills will work your entire body and rev your metabolism."
Here's how it works: you'll warm up (instructions below), and then use a timer (either on your phone, with an app, or using a watch) to complete each exercise for 30 seconds, followed by a 15-second break between each move. Repeat the circuit for a total of two times.
"Your goal is to perform the exercises at a moderate pace by safely repeating the moves with full range of motion. You can increase or decrease your intensity by adjusting your pace," he said.
OK, for the warmup — 15 seconds each:
- Standing torso rotations
- Arm circles forward
- Arm circles backward
- Arm criss-cross
- Reverse lunges
- Knees up
- Butt kickers
- Lateral lunges
All done? Let's get to work.
