Cardio kickboxing and bodyweight cardio moves come together for a sweaty interval workout that is great for burning fat and improving cardiovascular endurance. This is a total body workout; targeting all of the major muscle groups lightly, with a heavy emphasis on core and lower body. A workout like this one is a great way to blow off steam and lower stress levels. Do your best to push yourself throughout this workout and you’re going to find that you’re a sweaty, satisfied mess at the end.
You won't need any equipment at all for this home workout, and it can easily be done in a small space - with slight modifications, this can easily be an apartment or hotel workout (just watch for the low impact modifications if you’re worried about neighbors below).
We’ve also tried to keep this workout as excuse-proof and convenient as possible by including your warm up; make sure not to skip a good cool down & stretch, as each are an important part of a smart, effective, safe workout.
This routine is easily scaleable in difficulty, so watch for modification cues throughout if you’re looking to make the routine easier, low impact, or more difficult. Feel free to take longer or shorter rest periods as you need to; when you’re working out alone, it’s 100% up to you to modify in order to make certain that you’re pushing yourself in order to get the most out of this routine.
If you’re reading this and on the fence about working out - we encourage you to stop contemplating and jump right in. This workout is fun and it goes by fast - turn on some music, put on some comfortable clothes and earn your workout complete.
