Kickboxing is popular and is known as aerobic or cardiovascular (Cardio) Kickboxing, which combines elements of boxing, martial arts, and aerobics to provide an overall physical conditioning and toning. Unlike other types of kickboxing, cardio kickboxing does not involve physical contact between competitors. It is a fantastic cardiovascular workout, that is done because of its many benefits to the body.
The Kickboxing class starts with warm-up, which may include stretching and traditional exercises such as jumping jacks and push-ups, followed by a 30 minute Kickboxing session which includes movements such as knee strikes, kicks, and punches. Some instructors may use equipment like punching bags or jump ropes.
After this, at least 5 minutes should be devoted to cooling down, followed with stretching and muscle conditioning. Stretching is really important because beginners can strain (“pull”) their muscle. Slow, proper stretching helps relax muscles and prevents injury.
