5 Kickboxing Moves to Burn the Most Fat
Are you bored of running on the same old treadmill over and over again? It’s time to revamp your workout routine and add a little more fun to it while shedding off more pounds than you would have otherwise. Maybe, give kickboxing a try! I promise it’s super fun with all those punches, kicks, and footwork. Plus, the benefits you reap are enough to keep you motivated. You not only get to drop off calories, but also tone your entire body and strengthen your muscles. But don’t forget to wear a sports bra during the process to avoid discomfort and keep your breasts firm while you work up a sweat.
That said, if your main idea is to burn fat, here are 5 most effective kickboxing moves that will help you get one step closer to those 11 line abs in the shortest time period possible.
One of the best moves to work on your upper body and strengthen your inner core. You’re supposed to stand in a boxing position with one leg in front of the other with some distance in between. Keep your hands in fist form placed next to your chin. Throw a quick straight punch using one hand followed by the other hand. Do a couple of reps daily for best results. Maybe do a set of ten 2-3 times a day.
Side kick squats
In this exercise, you have to stand in line with the punching bag. Although, you don’t necessarily need to have a punching bag. All you have to do is bring your back foot forward, lift it sideways and kick it real hard. Get your foot back to the original position and squat down. Repeat on the other side and practice this rep at least 10 times on each leg. This not only helps to get rid of cellulite, but also works on that booty.
Work on your abs by lying down on your back while bending your knees. Try to raise your upper body by crunching your abs and punch one arm with force in the front. This is one rep. Keep repeating this move using alternative arms in a controlled manner to get a tinier waistline and strengthen your core at the same time. Ideally, you should do about 10 reps on each side.
Make it your cardio, practice it when you feel low. Kidding, not kidding! This exercise is a fundamental move to kickstart your cardio fitness. It builds your calves, quads, booty as well as core. Like the name states, all you have to do is kick your foot in the front. Stand with left leg forward, place one fist beside your face, and then draw your weight on the other leg. Lift your left knee close to the chest with the heel in tight contact with the glute muscle. Kick your left leg with full power and return to your original position. Repeat on one side for about 10 reps and then switch to the other leg.
This is a nice low impact cardio workout that keeps your abs and arms engaged in a smooth manner. Stand back up with your feet as wide apart as your shoulders. Bend your knees to maintain a controlled and balanced position. Punch your left hand hard towards the right side and continue the movement for about 10 times. Repeat on the right hand. This exercise not only has an impact on your abs, but also helps to minimize entire body fat as a whole.
So, what are you waiting for? Box towards your fitness journey and see the transformation you so badly want.
