Kickboxing Calorie Burning Workout

Do you really want a workout that delivers on the hype? Well look no further than a real kickboxing calorie burner workout. What do I mean by a “Real Kickboxing Workout”? Well have a good look around the fitness and workout world. You will see loads of stuff people call “Cardio Kickboxing” or “Aerobic Kickboxing”. I have to tell you straight, this is not a real kickboxing workout and I also truly believe it can damage your health if you are not careful.

I have been involved in practicing, teaching and competing in kickboxing for over 26 years. I teach real kickboxing techniques using safety kick shields, focus pads for punching and professional punch and kick bags. This is all to do with safety and with truly burning calories during a real kickboxing workout.

To get a great calorie burning workout you need to be working with a professional in their field. This has to do with being able to teach safe and correct technique that you can perform ad not injure yourself. Using professional hand protection, such as boxing gloves and professional strike targets is vital for safety but also for a great calorie burning workout.

I have watched many a cardio kickboxing or aerobic kickboxing workout and cringed when I see people paying good money to not be shown how to perform correct techniques in a safe way. I see regularly people kicking and punching thin air with speed and power, this is hazardous to the health of your joints.

People should not be punching or kicking into thin air with speed and power, especially if they have never been taught how to deliver the correct hand or foot technique. I am not having a go at aerobic teachers by the way. I would never walk into an aerobics class and try to tell the instructor how to run their class. However I believe the system must be totally flawed if an aerobics teacher can suddenly open up a new class and call it some kind of kickboxing workout, even if they have been on a 2 hour induction course!

To get a real kickboxing calorie burning workout, get yourself along to a professional kickboxing school. Now remember I said “Professional Kickboxing School:” not some hidden down a back alley, kick your butt psycho Rambo wannabe kickboxing class. When you walk into my kickboxing school you will be greeted in a polite and friendly manner. Someone will introduce themselves to you and ask you how they can help you.

Once you have been assessed to be fit and able to take part in a physical training programme, and you have consulted your doctor to ensure you are also okay to do so, we will allow you to take part in an introduction session. In this short session you will be taught some easy stretching routines to warm yourself up for a kickboxing session. You will also be taught some basic techniques that you will be using in future kickboxing sessions. An introductory session will not be a full forty five minute session, but just a short insight into what you are going to become involved in.

You will then progress into your beginner group where you will have an instructor monitoring you to ensure you are performing all the techniques in a safe manner so as not to injure yourself.

You will now be striking the professional kick and punch targets that our school provides for your convenience. You will start to feel just how much effort it takes to deliver the correct technique onto a professional kicking or punching strike shield, say compared to kicking out into thin air. You will also feel that your joints are not being extended too far, which is what happens when you punch and kick thin air with speed and power.

Once you start to improve your techniques and are performing them all safely, you will be moved into a slightly more experienced group where you can push yourself a bit harder to burn even more calories and get your cardio strength even better. The point here is that when you are striking targets correctly and safely, you burn far more calories and work far harder than you do when you dance around an aerobic studio throwing out your legs and arms to hyperextend your knee, elbow, wrist and ankle joints.

Now remember that we are talking about a kickboxing workout here, there is no physical contact taking place with another person. No one is hitting you and you are not hitting anyone else. The strikes are done onto professionally designed punch and kick strike targets as well as professionally designed punch and kick bags. The great thing with a real kickboxing workout is that when you get better at the techniques, with your instructors professional guidance, you will be able to punch and kick the targets even harder and therefore burn even more calories.

The really exciting thing is that every workout will be different. When we run the kickboxing workouts at our school we always ensure that one session is never the same as the next. Now I know obviously that when it comes to getting better at a certain technique then repetition is the mother of success. However if you have a good quality, qualified and motivated instructor, they can disguise this technique repetition with fun and exciting drills.
