Getting started with kickboxing (25 min)

Beginner 25 minutes
article rating 4.4/5 158

In this session we will work on the three basic punching movements (jab, hook, uppercut), as well as the two roundhouse kicks (low kick and middle kick). We will do sets of 1 minute of exercise followed by 15 seconds of recovery between each exercise. You'll need a punching bag, boxing hand wraps, and at least 1 metre free floor space around the bag.
A reminder about "lead" and "rear" moves:
If you're right handed, move your left leg one step forward; your left arm and leg will be designated "lead" because they're in the lead (front) relative to the other side of your body. If you're left-handed, bring your right leg forward; your right side is now your "lead" side.

Coach advice
