Extreme Kickboxing

For the first 5 minutes I just marched in place. On days that I really want to get a great arm workout for the punches I would use a light weight in my hands. Feel free to do that.

Wasn’t able to find any music to pump into the video so you are left with my breathing and the music from my phone. Feel free to just turn off the sound and use your own music to motivate you.
Circuit 1-3
You will be following each exercise all the way down this page once through and then repeating that same order 2 more time.

Jumping Jacks

Duck and Dodge

Sidestep Kick

  • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, elbows bent, fists in front of chest.
  • Step left foot in as you shift weight onto left leg and kick right leg directly out to right side, foot flexed.
  • Return to start.
  • Do  1 minute. Switch sides, repeat.

Jab and Cross Combo:

Jab

  • Stand with your left leg about a foot in front of you with both knees slightly bent. Bend your elbows so that your fists are just below your chin.
  • Punch your right arm straight out as you shift your weight to your back leg. Come back to starting position.
  • Go straight to CROSS

Cross

If your right foot is in front, your left hand does a cross.

  • Stand with right foot forward in fighting stance.
  • Turn left foot, knee and hip to the right at the same time, followed by the left shoulder and left arm.
  • Twist your forearm so your fist is horizontal at full extension; don’t lock your elbow.
  • Recoil and return to fighting stance immediately.
  • Repeat Jab and Cross for 1 minute

Tip: The force of the cross originates from the hips. By using your core, you’ll pack a more powerful punch.

Front Kick to Back Kick

  • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees and elbows bent, hands in a fist below your chin.
  • Bend your left leg and lift it so that it forms a 90-degree angle.
  • Extend the lower part of that leg and kick it out in front of you, keeping your knee slightly bent. (Imagine kicking a door shut with your heel.)
  • Lean forward as you lift your left leg back and bend your knee.
  • Kick that leg behind you so that it forms a straight line with upper body.
  • Bring it back to a bent position and repeat front and back for 1 minute

 Hook and Upper Cut

Hook

  • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees and elbows bent, hands in a fist below your chin.
  • Turn your torso slightly as you punch your arm in a hooking motion so it’s parallel to the floor.
  • Come back to start and go right to uppercut.

Uppercut

  • Drop your right hand slightly and bend both knees, then twist your hips to the left as you thrust your right fist straight up and slightly forward with knuckles facing the ceiling and palm facing body.
  • Keep your left fist by your face.
  • Recoil immediately and return to fighting stance.
  • Repeat Hook Uppercut for one minute

Tip: To generate more force, drive the punch from your legs up. Don’t punch up beyond the tip of your nose.
