Non-Contact Kickboxing Cardiovascular Workout Class Description

You will get 50 minutes of bag punching, leg-stretching, heart-pounding, ab-crunching, fun workout! It's a combination of an intense cardiovascular workout with powerful Kickboxing techniques. The aerobic Kickboxing provides over-all challenging workout, developing strength, flexibility, stamina and self-confidence. The dynamic routines work the upper body as well as the lower body at the high end of the fat burning scale, creating visible results.

This class offers varying cardiovascular conditioning as well as calisthenics. The class format can range from circuit training, which includes various exercise stations using equipment, to instructor led punching and kicking routines, with or without punching bags and gloves.

A typical 50 minute class begins with a moderate intensity warm up and light stretching, followed by 15 - 20 minutes of punching and kicking routines, designed to work self-defense techniques while maintaining each student's heart rate well into the fat-burning zone. For the next 15-20 minutes, students wrap their wrists and put gloves on for bag workout, and incorporate resistance with a heavy punching bag. While executing several sets of punches, kicks and combinations, students develop strength, speed and power. The final 10 minutes of class are set aside for a cool down with exercises that include push ups, squats and crunches, which tone and shape muscles, and deep stretches, which increase flexibility and aid in muscle recovery.

Contact Cardio Fit Non-Contact Kickboxing Tips

  • When making a fist keep the thumb outside your fingers.
  • Keep your chin down with arms and hands in pyramid position.
  • Visualize your opponent in the mirror. Your mirror image becomes your "opponent", aim for "your opponent's" chin when punching.
  • Visualize making contact with the knuckles of the index and middle fingers. There should be 95% extension of your arms with the straight punches. (Especially when using hand weights) As fast as the punches go out they must be retracted. The first jab of a double or triple does not retract all the way, retract one first as the other comes forward when throwing combos and remember to use your abs.
  • Do not telegraph your punches;
  • Never allow elbows to go behind your body ... particularly with uppercuts.
  • Remain ¾ face with your opponent. Never "square up".
  • Always keep your lead foot pointing toward your opponent and rear foot visible in mirror. Never bring the feet together when punching.
  • "Don't tight wire".
  • When moving front/ back as in "stick & move", move your whole body back and forth, not just the hips.
  • Use the legs and glutes when slipping punches, not the lower back.
  • Students should monitor themselves and stop when they feel fatigued, just like fighters do when they tone down their intensity during a fight.
  • Watch some fights on television to see what strikes and movements you recognize.
  • Drink water during class...and by all means bring a towel...your going to need it!
  • Practice! Practice! Practice!
