K-K-Kickboxing: Let’s Sweat It out!

by Nicole on December 29, 2010

I know I told you all about the enormous stack of magazines I got from my friends and family pre-surgery. I’ve slowly been going through them and have really enjoyed reading every one. They have basically cured my boredom because I’ve had A LOT of down time. Luckily, I am starting to feel better now, still not 100%, but I basically feel more or less like myself.

Thank you for all of your supportive comments and well wishes. It’s made for a speedier recovery, emotionally at least! I went to the doctor yesterday and he said I have about 3 weeks left of healing, but I can do anything as I want, as I feel comfortable. I’m NOT going to push it, but next week I may try and get on a treadmill to walk, we’ll see.

Anyways, this past week I started doing minimal workouts, as in, I may look like an 80 year old as I do some step touches in my living room. I’ve mainly been doing very light weights (2-3 pounds) and some kickboxing. In all of my magazine reading I came across this workout in October’s Shape Magazine. I thought I’d share it because it was a perfect workout for me. It was easy, but still got me sweaty.

Basically if you know kickboxing, even a little bit you can do this. All you need to know is jab, cross, hook, uppercut, bob and weave and the side shuffle.

I love that you don’t need any equipment for this.

So here it is. After the warm up do the moves in each round for 2 minutes. Between rounds, do the side shuffle for 30 seconds and rest for 30 seconds. *Note: I switched sides at 1 minute in each round. I used a stop watch to time the warm up and rounds.

I left out the pushups and this workout took me about 30 minutes. If you need a quick workout that will get your body going, then give this a try!

Do you like doing kickboxing workouts?

Have a wonderful day!

Glad you’re getting some movement in! I used to love kickboxing when it was popular in gym classes. I wish they still offered it.

I did one class of kick boxing while in college… I was SO SORE afterward, haha! I didn’t hate it, but it didn’t line up well with my schedule so I ended up not going anymore. Most of college I used the gym for weight lifting to keep myself toned and the elliptical to get my heart rate up. I know most people get bored with the same old same old, but I love routine. *grins*

Continue to heal and feel better! :)
